A Different Kind of Summer Again This Year

February 16, 2021

Temperature 68 Degrees

Family Day

Day after day it has been in the 70 to 80 degree range.  Then there was today.  We were back in the 60’s with a strong northeast wind.  Just perfect for sitting outdoors with company.  Well, sort of if you had a sweatshirt on.  Of course Ms. Barbara was the exception.

Today Ms. Barbara’s brother Harry and his wife Janet came to visit.  Usually we go to Tampa to visit them but today they came north.

We spent an enjoyable afternoon on the patio.  We had lunch together and spent hours talking about just about everything under the sun.  Harry is now undergoing a much more agressive form of chemotherapy treatment but he is holding his own.  Thankfully, he only has treatments every other week.  This week was an off week hence he was able to travel.  He has a long way to go and the outcome is still uncertain.  He can use all our prayers.

Around the park.

Ms. Naughty is ready for Mardi Gras.

And here she is celebrating with some of her park friends!

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We’re now settling in for the night under some nice warm blankets.  Silly me, I put our heaters away the other day only to have to take them back out again.  We’re due for some more nights in the low 40’s and mid 30’s.  But of course there is no such thing as climate change.  Tell that to the poor souls in Houston and other parts of Texas.  Those poor people.  What freaky weather.

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. Sharing your day with family….. NICE!! Looks like Ms. Naughty and friends are celebrating Mardi Gras but without masks and no social distancing. Try to stay warm.


  2. Looks like a nice day. Prayers for all are continuing. I thought the same thing as the above comment. I would not be in that group! Currently, feels like 3 degrees F outside with the wind chill. However, the sun came out yesterday, no wind, and I was able to take a walk! Almost felt like Florida to me! ha ha Enjoy your day, and stay safe!
