Don’t want to make anyone mad, but it is short sleeve weather here. Looking forward to having a fire tonight. WE love camp fires. Enjoy sitting close to it with a cup of coffee and talking about our, family, our past and our lives.
You can’t bring them back for him. The family can’t bring them back for him. His loving wife of 60+ years cannot bring them back. He was once the clerk of a church I pastored, when I thought I was a preacher. He taught me a lot. Now he cannot remember what he taught me.
So, we enjoy each other, my love and I. We know we don’t have a lot of time left to do it. We walk around the different places that we stay, as we live this part of our lives RV’ing.
We laugh at how naïve we have been in the past. Rushing through each phase of our lives, just to reach another. Oh we enjoyed the times. But did not know how wonderful our teens were. WE did not have a clue how wonderful life was when we were in our twenties. About thirty we saw others at forty, fifty doing the same. I can remember telling Sherry. “I do not want to get old and say I wish I had done this, this or that. Let’s try to do it when and while we can.”
So we have. It has been great. If I ever have regret, it will be not sailing around the world. Right now is not the time to think of doing that, because of the danger and unrest on the open sea. So I am not going to cry over that. Tonight I am going to hold my girl and thank her for following this derelict through his dreams and fantasies. We will relive some good times around the fire.
Right now I am going to close and go have dinner with our pastor & his lovely wife.
