A FEW PHOTOS TONIGHT FROM MY COMPUTER CHAIR IN THE SUN ROOM
I found myself once again this morning standing in front of my closet with the same question on my mind I have every year about this time. What do I wear? Not for today of course, but for the winter months in the South-west. We seem to pack two thirds more clothes than we ever wear & every year we tell ourselves we are going to be smarter about that next time. We never are. Winter temps can go from mostly warm to downright hot in the daytime & cool to dam cold at night so one needs clothes to cover those wide ranges. When boondocking, laundromats can be few & far between so one needs to carry a generous helping of clean clothes. But, if we spend a fair bit of time at our Ghost Town Road digs & buy a washer this winter, maybe we won't need as many clothes. Decisions, decisions. I did leave some clothes hanging in a closet at the house last March but of course haven't a clue now what I left.
Another fine weather morning so busied myself around the Motorhome. Solar batteries to be checked, a little more cleaning & of course some clothes to begin loading up. About 6 weeks before we leave so there is plenty to do. Just a super great time of the year & I enjoy being busy with the end result of once again being back on the road. With the bulk of summer's boredom rapidly disappearing behind me, I think I just might be mighty darn close to letting a great big smile slip across this older aging mug of mine:))
Can't really remember when the last time was I ever tucked my shirt into my pants but I'm guessing it was about the time I was maybe 40 pounds lighter than I am now. And, that was quite awhile ago. I remember a time when wearing a button up shirt outside your pants was considered, sloppy. How many times did I hear my Mother say, back in public school days, "tuck your shirt in!!" I recall it seemed like only older overweight guys walked around with their shirts pulled out. Yep, well welcome to the world of 'overweight & older' AL:((
Labor Day week-end 10 years ago today marked a turning point for Kelly & I. It was one decade ago today we drove through the entrance here at the Five Seasons Estates, stopped to look at a board with 'homes for sale' & spotted one that looked affordable & promising. Around the corner & down a Pine tree lined street we went & there it was, last one on the left. Two short months later we moved lock, stock, & barrel from the old farmhouse to where we live today. Our unit & grounds did not look like they do now & our first 4 years here kept us busy making many changes. Those were enjoyable years:))
GROANER'S CORNER:)) Don’t party too hard on the Labor Day week-end or you may end up looking like this…….
