1928 Chevrolet Note the solid rims, no spokes
We are no longer young, yeah I know that is a shock, but it MUST have a bearing on our future. On this trip, Sherry’s first confession was, “I am nervous jack.” I was driving as we talked, but her statement wasn’t in jest, it was serious.
“Is it my driving?” I asked.
“No, but if we continue living in an RV, I would probably have to take a ½ nerve pill for trips.” Folks, nerve pills are not normal, nor her way of life. I also don’t want it to become that.
The drive was good, not very congested except in road maintenance areas, but fairly open, otherwise. On the interstate, she jumps, startled, when someone seems forced to merge but they don't seem to know how or when.
It is becoming nerve wracking to her and I do not want her miserable. We discussed the price in selling of our coach. Also after the coach is gone, I asked if she still wanted to winter in Florida? She said she did.
That has a couple options. We could buy a ‘trailer’ in Florida. Then either fly down or drive down for the winter. We have friends who drive and two friends who fly down.
I do agree, I think I would still like to spend the winters in Florida. Sherry will read this. I don’t think she will be upset with my openness here. We need to resolve some questions.
I suggested a trailer because the tax on a trailer is less and much more reasonable than a house. We have lived in trailers and have NO problem with the trailer life style. Many retires choose trailers for that reason. Besides it is the weather not the concern of who likes it or not.
We have lived in (and now own) what some would call a VERY NICE home and for a few years also lived in trailers. What others think is their problem. It has been over 50 years since I wanted to impress someone (other than Sherry!). LOL
We have given the small FL home to Mark already, but could probably work out a trade, and get the house back. It is near an airport in Sanford. Just a passing thought.
ps2: Betty, Words with Friends is Sherry's game with JJ
PS3. And just now she said: Let's not think about selling the motor home just yet. ;-) ;-)
