Those Gas stations:
Years ago I worked at a service station. I learned that the profit off the gas only paid the utilities. The owner's profits came from oil changes and repairs.
For Tuesday’s stuff:
WE are parked by Joe and Donna. WE just met. There are a lot of Veterans who RV. Some join the military when they are young and the moving around to different bases gets into their life style and once retired answer the call to the road.
Many Vets fly flags; it was easy to see the USA Flag with the USMC ensign below it. I always use the term ‘Jarhead’ as the marines are affectionately called. His dog a retriever ran over to Sherry and he apologized. I said, “Oh that is okay, you have to love a ‘Jarhead’ dog.”
He laughed and we had a chance to talk a little.
Joe is 74, his wife Donna is in a wheel chair. They sold everything they had, bought the 5th wheel RV and hit the road just in the last few months.. He said they had discussed it and if they were gonna travel it was now or never. So they went for it.
We cannot help but see them as they go thru the gyrations of getting Donna in and out of the truck. It is tough but they are enjoying life. It is sweet seeing ‘elderly’*** folks in love.
We are excited for them as we remember that feeling of ‘hitting the road.’
PS: The ***Elderly is used for Myra’s benefit. LOL
