Happy New Year from our home to yours!!!!
(The guy on the right up there has all his belongings on the trailer and p/u truck, we used to put our belongings in the truck and back seat of the car)
Sherry and I were talking about how lucky, fortunate and blessed we are, as we drove down the road a couple days ago. It is no secret; I have the best wife, friend and lover in the world. She makes me feel like a King.
(Our home in Florida, now(note the sunshine by the shadow))
Our life ‘on-the-road’ suits us both, we love it. It is hard for some folks to imagine living full time in 320 sq ft. I get the question from men all the time, ‘how do you live with your wife in those quarters?’
(That is the shower and bed from where I am sitting)
My answer is: I love it. She can’t hide, I enjoy seeing her in the shower from where am typing (not right now! (but I wish!)). I can see her get dressed (and undressed), what is there not to love?
(That is Sherry’s seat across the table, and on forward is our picture window of ‘our’ world) (That is a fresh orange on the table BTW)
I have mentioned here before, once I had an epiphany, (a sudden realization: a sudden intuitive leap of understanding, especially through an ordinary but striking occurrence).
I realized just how fortunate I am. This girl has willingly followed me thru my many whims and life changes. From a Marine, to a laborer for the Charlotte Observer, to an Airman, to a preacher, to a Sailor, To Roach Coach owner, to an entertainer, to a builder and on to a wanderer. I thought of the many nights and days she was alone raising two boys while I was gallivanting over the globe. I realized in a little way that I had been trying to repay her for all her love and dedication.
After that, I started a concentrated effort to make her life easier. I enjoy cooking for her. I enjoy washing dishes, cleaning the Motor home (she won’t let me do that all the time, but I enjoy it when she will put up with it). I enjoy giving her a full-body massage at least once a week (usually). I want her to enjoy the senior part of her life.
One of the things that is nice here in the motor home is simplicity. We use two plates (or bowls) two glasses or cups a pot or a couple bowls for each meal. We seldom ‘lose’ something, it is near somewhere.
Washing dishes this morning I was missing the cup with Sherry on it. I looked she was not holding it, it was not on the table the simple answer: It is in the micro-wave where she put it to re-heat her coffee and did not get it out. YEP! There it is. Simplicity, our style now.
(This is looking behind me at the kitchen, Sherry is reaching to get the dish rag (yeah we have a dish rag), she is avoiding pictures, says ‘She isn’t dressed, but she is. The slow cooker has our black eyed peas cooking)
Thanks for coming by the log.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
