Late getting to the computer tonight so might be a short blog. Had us a great sunny day with temps in the low 70's so we are definitely headed in the direction of summer.
THIS LITTLE GARTER SNAKE FELLOW HAS TAKEN UP RESIDENCE IN OUR CACTUS GARDEN & LOVES SUNNING HIMSELF ON THE WARM ROCKS
Managed to get myself another three & a half hours of work time in again today. Picked up a couple of folks with the mobility van in a small town nearby & took them to another nearby town & dropped them off for a bit. Returned them home a couple hours later. Because of confidentiality rules with the company I drive for I can't really say too much about the people I transport or where they are going or for what reasons. But I can say that it is just general things like medical appointments, visiting, errands & some grocery shopping etc. All folks are in wheel chairs or electric scooters & that is why it is a mobility van I am driving. Been doing this for about 6 years now & probably 98% of all the people I have transported over those years are elderly Seniors. Of course they don't know me as a cranky old Cursmudgeon though. To them I am one of those bouncy, good natured & friendly 'young guys.' Yep, I like that job alright:))
TIME TO GET THE KID'S POOL OUT FOR THE SUMMER
I have half a dozen blogs or so I read every morning & another dozen or so I check periodically to see how people are doing. It's just impossible to read everybody's blog & of course I feel guilty about that when I miss things or realize I haven't read so & so's blog for awhile. We all pour our heart's & minds into these darn things & I do try my best to keep up with people's writings. One of those half dozen or so blogs I read daily is written by a lady who goes by the road name of Gypsy.
AWWWW MOM, DO I REALLY HAVE TO HAVE MY SPRING BATH
I think it was a year or two ago when I first came across GYPSY'S BLOG out here in RV blog land. Her postings caught my attention right away because she was down to earth with her writings & talked about how she felt about things. It wasn't just a run of the mill 'nice-nice sugar & spice' blog that would fit quite comfortably into any glossy travel magazine. I liked how Gypsy talked about the down days, the challenges, & hardships, of being a single lady RVer alone on the road driving a big truck hauling an even bigger 5th wheel trailer. Although off the road now for awhile she continues to blog about her daily happenings & more importantly, how she feels about life from day to day. The ups as well as the downs. She approaches each day with the reality of challenges it holds for her. No glossing over the difficulties with big happy face Cheshire grins or skipping through phony non existent never ending wondrous days. No, Gypsy will give you her honest opinion & is not afraid to tell you how she feels. If she's grumpy, she's grumpy & if she's happy she will tell you about that too.
YES, THIS IS DEFINITELY A POND OF FROGS
I have great respect for people who face reality & who understand & accept the realism around them. I admire those folks who have the courage to break from the herd & think for themselves. They are definitely in the minority but I feel they are definitely on the right track. Keep up the good work Gypsy....you go girl:))
A LONE CANOE AWAITS A LONE PADDLER
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Irishman Patrick Finnegan came home drunk every evening toward ten. Now, the Missus was never too happy about it, either. So one night she hides in the cemetery and figures to scare the beejeezus out of him. As poor Pat wanders by, up from behind a tombstone she jumps in a red devil costume screaming, "Patrick Sean Finnegan, sure and ya' don't give up you're drinkin' and it's to Hell I'll take ye'". Pat, undaunted, staggered back and demanded, "Who the hell ARE you?". Too that the Missus replied, "I'm the divil ya' damned old fool". To which Finnegan remarked, "Damned glad to meet you sir, I'm married to yer sister."
