The best laid plans of Mice and Jack
I like this car:
The '59 Dodge Royal Lancer, my Sister Shirley's first car. She loved it.
A few days ago we were at our ‘last home’ in Deltona. It is under contract to be sold. I met ‘B’ (That is his name) on the sidewalk and as always he asked how we were doing and what the status was. I told him this would probably be the last time we got to see each other. Etc…
Well, as things go, the contract closing date gets moved forward. We have had MAJOR problems in reservations here in Florida this year. Since we still have a full hook-up for the RV in Deltona and are still paying the utilities, we have moved back here until the actual closing. That way the house isn’t sitting unattended.
We aren’t the least bit concerned about vandalism; this has been one of the calmest places we have lived. This place is amazing. In this area you can walk down the middle of the street and not be worried about traffic or speeding cars. Kids even play basketball in the streets.
We do not regret passing some of the boys' inheritance to them now; it cuts down on the book work and record keeping. However with the reservation 'crisis' we have even juggled the idea of buying another place. This time, a trailer, since the taxes are less than a house.
At present our PLANS (LOL) are to cut the time in Florida short and head back to NC as soon as this closing takes place. We prefer staying here, but RV space availability dictates where we head.
Sherry & I talk a lot about the RV’ing time we have left. I know you too get a little tired of it. BUT I would like to make one more swing around the USA. Visit some kin in Ypsilanti, Las Vegas, Utah, Oregon and friends along the way. WE think of wintering in Arizona or Texas one more time before we call it quits. My Sherry even leaned that way the other day. LOL It made me smile.
