Now tonight: (Entry looks a little Christmasy, I sorta feel like it!)
We all have those special people in our lives. Children, Grands and Greats. That special friend, the one who sorta thinks like you and enjoys the line of things you do.
Then there are Wives and Husbands. I feel for people who don’t LIKE their mate, even though they may LOVE them. Life is fun when you Like, Love, appreciate and enjoy being with that mate.
We are now in Florida. I drove all the way down this time. I did make a reservation halfway down for Wednesday nite, but had to cancel because of the heating/cooling unit in Belmont. So we decided to leave at 6AM today and miss the traffic related to Charlotte. HAHA, I learned something there are a million people going to work at 6AM. Don’t people go to work at 8-9AM?
But we made it. The traffic wasn’t bad after we actually got out of Belmont. Nice all the way and we did not see one accident. BUT I did see a ’68-69 SS Chevy and a ’39 coupe Buick. I get good feelings seeing the old classics on the road.
Relating Sherry and I to old classics, we are in good shape. Both of us at the beginning of our 80th years. We stopped several times coming down just for a break and one refueling time at the Flying J.
We talked a lot on the road, we are both tired, but on a high. We have been sitting for nearly
Shucks, it didn’t’ matter if we had made this trip ten times, it was me ‘n my girl. I tell her she is the most beautiful girl in the world, she ‘pooh-poohs’ that, but I assure her, “If I’m lying, I’m dying.”
She is sitting across from me at her computer ‘asleep’. The coach is set up. She took me out for a great salad this evening. We are in for the night. She made arrangements to pick up our mail (about 40 miles away) and take a former pastor and his wife out to lunch tomorrow. After that there are no plans, except RELAX and enjoy life.
After the summer we have had, this is our ‘heaven’ for a few days before we set off on some other ‘small adventure’.
