Never Say Never

January 24, 2022

Temperature 61 Degrees

Not me, Not Now, Not Never

That’s what I said for months on end.

I will never get COVID. Not me, not now, not never.

But you know what they say about people who say never.

Short, sweet and to the point.

Sunday I tested positive for COVID. I was absolutely shocked. I had a normal temperature. A slight cough. OK, the day before I had a slight fever and I had no energy. But that was all. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Where did I get it from? I believe I contracted it from the crew that installed the windows. They were the only ones I was in close contact with for the past month.

So Ms. Barbara’s surgery had to be rescheduled for March 15th. With several weeks of rehab afterwards we’ll have to alter the start of our summer travel plans a bit. However, that’s not a big one. Surgery first and then we’ll go from there.

So life continues on The Road of Retirement. Life is never dull in these parts. But life is still good and we are blessed beyond measure. We’ll get this behind us and solider on.

Thanks again for stopping by today  We always appreciate your company, and your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

Our continuing mission remains the same: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before.


  1. Oh, I am sorry to hear this! That’s how Dan felt when he got it. He never did know where he got it. I will say a prayer for both you and Barb. I can’t wait until this is all in the rear view window, and we are in our respective RVs going down the road to better adventures. Take care!


      1. Be sure to walk around often. Even though you need to rest, too much sitting isn’t good either. I don’t know if this contributed to Dan’s issues, but we didn’t take our walks as much. Prayers and good luck!


  2. Oh, so sorry to hear but glad those are the only symptoms you have. I wonder how many of us have had it but said it was our winter cold. I’ll be so glad when this is gone, but as long as there are ppl refusing to be vaccinated I guess we all will suffer. We camped with a couple for several years, they refused vaccination. They passed away within a month of each other and also a 27 year old grandson. I now have a friend that is on a ventilator. So sad when it could have been prevented. Prayers for you both and as we get older we realize plans may need to be altered at times, not thrown out.
