This and that
Darla and the folks in the North woods of Wisconsin were threatened with the 'S' word and dodged the white bullet. BUT OLD WOODY in NY, and his sweetie got their first taste. SNOW.
We are in a camping club with Thousand Trails. According to our membership, we should stay in Florida all winter at no cost. BUT like a lot of 'time-share-plans' today they tend to over sell. As usual I went to the web site and asked for a couple weeks to stay near some friends. The answer came back 'nothing available'! WHAT? in November, never happen. It never gets tight in Florida until after Christmas. The soonest we could get in a site is 19 January. WHAT?
Some folk just simply lead, they do not even have to say, 'follow me'.
Oh well, we are two fortunate people. I say blessed because we saw this coming (but not this soon) Thousand Trails are selling more options than the Three Stoogies could come up with. See, this was our plan when buying this house. There is room for the RV and I already have the full hookups set for it. So when nothing is available with our RV friends, we can come HOME!
Our sons and all our grand kids have keys to the house and know they can come to Florida anytime they want to, except Ben & Corey out in Utah. But they can also have a key if they want to come out for a few days. We know how to pile up and share, even sleep on pallets, if there is a crowd.
I was disappointed today, I spent most of the day shopping for material and getting a tag for the trailer. Tomorrow we will look for some furniture.
We do have a driveway man coming, REALLY! You know the oddest thing, TIMING? Many times when we push our buggy out from the grocer, the guy/gal parked beside us is loading the car with groceries. Well, Sherry called the Paver to find out when he could do the driveway. He said tomorrow. Sherry said, we cannot be here, I have a Dr's appointment. So he said he would call back when he had another opening. I don't mind, in the mean time I am digging across the parking area to bury pipe that I might need if I later need to run something under the drive without cutting thru it.
only a few folk reading this can remember gas this cheap!
I saw it that cheap a couple times when this 1956 Buick was new.
