Truly Nolen is a pest control company of Florida. He is known by the hundreds of old cars that advertise his business.
But for today:
Vacations, the time to unwind from the hours that pay for that “happy time.” This week Mark’s family is headed for the beach. For a week. Jack Jr. is headed for Utah for a few weeks to be with his family there. They are all looking forward to the time away from that 4 letter word ‘work.’
I can remember very well awaiting ‘leave time’ in the military. The military splits up the Christmas holidays with the troops. Half get Christmas and the other half gets New Years.
Usually the married men take New Year’s leave and give the single guys the thrill of being home for Christmas.
I am thinking of this because the 4th is coming up and a good many troops like to be home around the 4th also. The young troops, new to the military, are proud to wear that uniform in their home town. I know I was. I try to let the young guys know I admire them for wearing the ‘uniform’.
I was blessed that long before retirement from the workforce, I found THAT JOB, the one I loved. The one that I did not live for Fridays. The job that Mondays could not come soon enough most weeks.
At that time then vacations were not that important, although we have always taken vacations.
NOW in our 80s we are on vacation all the time, but we still like to get on the road because like that job as a builder I loved, I equally love life on the road. We love the closeness of the motor home.
So our time is coming in 10 days we will take a vacation from our present vacation and hit the road, destination Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to see a play and dear friends. We are both really looking forward to that.
