Day late and $ short
Unique Service Stations:
For Monday’s stuff:
WE have driven three tanks of gas looking around this area. N/S about 140 miles and E/W40-50 miles. Roughly 30-35 houses. More gas than we have used previously this year.
Well we did find one that we both liked. It is very nice and plenty of room for the coach. 3/2, on ½ acre, two playhouses for me, location was good, price was Less than $60K.
Contacted the Realtor, he had just signed a contract on it. We have always TRIED to use the philosophy, all things work together for good, so will assume it was best for us that it was sold. Maybe someone else needed it more than we, or the termites were just waiting to show their mean heads. ;-) I like to think there is something better down the pike……….. or we just don’t need it. ;-O
I think many times when I am held up at a traffic jam, etc, that it just might have prevented me from being in an accident down the road.
One example I can never forget. We were driving through St. Louis when the kids were very young, no seat belts of course. At that time the Interstate System was not in place. There was a car in front of me taking up two lanes. I told Sherry the next traffic light that stops us I will pull alongside and when it turns green, I will safely get in front of him. As we slowed for the next red light a car was crossing the intersection in front of us under green his side, when a truck loaded heavy with roofing shingles ran the red light coming toward us and T-boned the crossing car. The car was hit so hard it was slid on its side and ended up exactly where we would have been, had the car not held me back, that car got hit. We did not get a scratch, but when it was over I realized I was pressing my brake with all my might trying to stop the car sliding toward me. LOL
So, we will return to NC without anything definite in Florida. We can handle that and continue the search in the Fall, if we come down. Life is good and we have honestly had fun and learned lot more of rural Florida by shopping. LOL
