Temperature Low 46 Degrees; High 49 Degrees

Just Plain Yucky

There’s no other way to put it. Just Plain Yucky. Cold. Damp. Where is the sun? Has it disappeared altogether? The past two days it has been raining. And the temperatures never got out of the 40’s. Well, the temperature is still in the 40’s today but at least the rain has stopped. But for how long?

It wouldn’t be all that bad if we had DISH or OTA. But we have neither. The trees put a nix to DISH and the bad weather to OTA. We’ve been, as you might have guessed, playing a lot of Mexican Train, watching movies we already recorded, and listening to Sirus on my phone.

Thankfully, we still had enough bandwidth to attend virtual worship today at our home church in Colts Neck.

We also have been

spending a lot of time with my sister, Cindy and her husband, Charlie. Being with them is well worth living with this miserable weather. Our time together has been priceless. We’ve talked about everything under the sun and then some more. We’ve eaten until finally we all called uncle because we are just stuffed. There is nothing better, if you ask me, then being with family.

We normally spend most of our time on her back deck but the weather hasn’t allowed it as of yet. Hopefully, before we leave we’ll get there. It’s such a beautiful place to just sit back and relax.

And this is why, this is a partial view of her backyard. A wonderful reminder of the beautiful world that God has created.

That’s where we’re at on The Road of Retirement. But before I go, a reminder, lets take a moment tomorrow to remember all those who served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces. Let’s remember especially all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we might enjoy the freedoms we do today. Freedoms, unfortunately, that are now in jeopardy by those who continue to push lies and misinformation. They disgrace all those who wear the uniform of our country by their despicable actions. Just my opinion.

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. Your sister’s deck and backyard area look like such a charming place to sit, relax and/or visit. As you said, it is a wonderful reminder of our beautiful world that God created. I hope you get to enjoy it before the road calls out again. Thank you again for your service to our country. I pray every day for our country as we surely need divine guidance. Have a good week ahead!


  2. The weather has been Yucky, but better temperatures are on the way. Your sister’s home looks so serene, so enjoy your time with family. Yes, our country is a mess and I’m afraid only prayers can get us out of it. I pray for God’s guidance and to push back EVIL and bring forth the GOOD. We’ve elected too many for too long. They must go, but as long as they give away the store it will be difficult to get them out. 🙏🙏🙏 Enjoy your time in a beautiful part of our country.
