Temperature Low, 59 Degrees; High, 71 Degrees

The Gangs All Gone

More Time With Family

Did you catch that picture in the beginning? Proof positive that the sun is still around and the sky is still blue. What an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday. However, we’re back to rain for the next several days. Want to guess when it starts to get better again? If you said the day we leave, meaning next Tuesday, you would be right!

Yes, the gang is all gone. I felt so bad for all those who came here for the Memorial Day Weekend. Friday through Sunday it was just so yucky. Then, yesterday when everyone was leaving it was the nicest day of all. Yet, the weather never stopped the kids from getting out. They were out riding bikes and gathering in the playground. Good for them.

Since yesterday was so nice we decided to gather together for a picnic. We had salads and other fixins out on the table.

We had burgers on the grill. Hey, I didn’t kill them this time.

OK, not the best of pictures. Ms. Barbara, my sister Cindy and her husband Charlie. A great time was had by all. In one sense, it will be hard leaving here because we’ve had – and still are having – such a great time with my sister and her husband. But in another sense it is going to be easy to go because of the yucky weather we continue to have. As with everything in life there are trade offs.

That is where we are on The Road of Retirement. We’re hanging in there and making the best of the hand we’ve been dealt. Life is still good no matter where we are nor what the weather is like. We are as I’ve said before two of the most blessed and fortunate people in the world.

  1. Looks like you had a classic Memorial Day picnic. Glad you enjoyed time with your sister. It’s always good to leave while they will still miss you. 🙂 Hope you get a break with the rain. If not, smile inside! Safe travels, and enjoy the week!
