Temperature Low, 47 Degrees; High, 68 Degrees

Amanda and The Grand Dogs

I Adopted Jules

What a fine morning we awoke to. Beautiful blue skies and abundant sunshine. Plus, the wind had finally died down to just a whisper.

Breakfast was waffles with a side of ham plus juice and coffee. Afterwards, tummy full, I decided to putter around outside for a bit.

I was able to get the front privacy screen on; next, the tire covers; and, finally the mirror and wiper covers. After that I went shopping in the pantry for my sweetheart. I ended my chores for the day by cleaning the love bugs off the front and then touching up the nicks in the front cap with the paint I had ordered.

While outside I struck up a conversation with my neighborhood on the left. What a wonderful family. This was their madden voyage for this year and their two boys were having a grand time. I believe its really great when you see a family getting out and enjoying the outdoors together. They’re doing things together, playing ball, flying model airplanes, bike riding and so much more. I wish them all the best this year in their travels here and there.

Later in the afternoon our daughter Amanda and our two grand dogs came for the night. Oh, that’s Ms. Barbara in the background making chicken cutlets for our supper. In addition to the cutlets we had mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, and vegetables. Absolutely yummy!

Grand dog number one, Inky.

Grand dog number two, Mae. She is the older of the two and is blind. She navigates by moving around and bumping into and off of things. Doesn’t seem to faze her in the least.

They’re so cute. And the best part of it is, they go back home in the end with my daughter.

Meet Jules, my newly adopted turtle. He is a loggerhead hatchling. As of now Jules is doing fairly well, however, I just received an email informing me that he is having a few issues which they are currently working to correct.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. It was a great day made even better when Amanda and the grand dogs came to visit. Over the course of the next three weeks we hope to see more of her and our son, Adam. We also have our grandchildren which we hope to visit as well. Ah yes, life is good.

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. How great to spend time with your daughter and her doggies! Sounds like a wonderful day. And congratulations on Jules. I hope his issues get resolved. Enjoy your Sunday!
