Temperature 92 Degrees

Time with Family

Where Oh Where Did It Go

Oh what a beautiful day we awoke to. The sky was crystal clear, the wind was gentle but oh as the day would demonstrate

the heat is on. The bottom number is the temperature outside in the shade! The top number is prior to turning the AC on. We thought we could do without it but oh how silly we were.

We had a wonderful day from start to finish. At noontime Harry and Janet came to visit and brought lunch for all from Subway. We spent a delightful afternoon together talking about just about everything under the sun. Barb and I agree these times together are so really special to us. We hope to be spending much more time together going forward since they own a home in Fort Myers.

Have you ever put something down but then couldn’t remember where you put it?

I had been reading this book throughout the morning as we waited for Harry and Janet. Well, when I saw them pull in I put it down – and it disappeared! At least I thought so. I searched the car, inside Elvira, all around outside and could not find it. It was driving me nuts.

I was about to give up and begin reading yet another book but I thought I’d take one more look outside. That’s when I picked up the lid for the garbage can which was lying on the outside work table – and there underneath was my book! Silly me.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We absolutely enjoy any time we can spend with family. In the months ahead we will be doing much more of this. It’s the whole reason we’re heading up the East Coast again. Oh yea, we’re getting close to moving out and we’re getting excited. In a way it will seem so strange since we’ve been sitting way too long in one place. But it’s time and we can’t wait to be on our way.

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. Glad you had such a nice time with family! And glad you found your book! I’m often losing things, and Dan will say, “You need me.” 🙂 I like to think I lose things because my mind is just thinking about so much stuff. I am looking forward to reading your posts when you are on the road! Lots to see on the East coast – which I haven’t done. Enjoy your day!
