Life On Hold – Departure Delayed Indefinitely

February 13, 2021

Temperature 79 Degrees

This and That

Down Memory Lane


Oh yes,  that sky looked ominous.  But then again it has looked that way many times in the past and nothing came of it.  Not this time.  About thirty minutes later the skies opened up and the rain came down.  Yet, it never lasts all that long.  This time, maybe forty minutes and it was all over.


Once it cleared up I decided to zip the new sun screen in place to see how it fit.  That’s when I discovered they forgot to put grommets in the bottom so it can be staked down.  Ah well, back to Talin next week to have that corrected.


I also was able to slip the reflectix in behind the privacy screen.  In the summer I put it here to keep the heat from coming through the windshield.   When it gets cold I put it up inside so that it reflects the heat back into the rig.  Got that?  LOL



Ah, a year ago.  We were in the process of switching from Graybeard . . .




 to Elvira.  My DW says if I ever think of getting a new rig, I’m moving everything myself.  That sort of makes me stop and think twice.

Let’s see, what else did we do?  Well, I started looking for RV Parks in the Jacksonville area.  I’m thinking positive, that being that is where we’re going to be spending a few months in the near future.  We puttered around picking up, vacuuming, cleaning out the refrigerator and doing the other usual household chores.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We’re still sort of on hold.  We sort of know where we’ll be going shortly.  We sort of know when.  We sort of know what RV park.  The key expression is sort of because until we have our consultation with the University of Florida we’re in limbo.  None of which, unfortunately, is sitting with we real well.  I want to be going, rolling, traveling – anything but sitting still.  I guess I’m about to get a really big lesson in the meaning of patience.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. I believe I started following you during your final day/weeks with Greybeard. I can’t believe it’s been a year! In some ways, time moves fast, other ways – slow. I hope you have a good Sunday, and I hope you will find some inspiration and peace in your church’s service. I’m betting you will.


  2. I must agree with your DW on the moving. We’ve been there and done that in a parking lot at the dealer in North Carolina. 😁 Jacksonville is a beautiful area so you’ll be able to discover new and exciting things there. Let’s look for the positive and the future explorations ahead. 🙏🙏🙏
