It is turning cool for this part of the state it got down to 50° last night and tonight is suppose to be even cooler. The temp is only getting up to 56° today. We will no doubt spend the day inside. We have gotten spoiled since we started fulltiming and not spending the winter time in cold temps. After 10 years of this the least bit of cool weather we get cold.

Yesterday moorning I saw an ad in the paper where Office Depot had a 19" LCD tv for $99.99 on sale so when we got ready we went there first thing. I go in the store and ask the clerk about the tv and she says that they already sold out,they went fast. I says it figures. Nancy was wanting to go to the mall to look in the stores. We stayed for a couple of hours and walked out without buying anything. Doesn't look like we are very good shoppers because 9 times out of 10 when we go shopping we end up not buying anything.
We got home ate dinner and I thought I would go online and see if I could maybe order the tv from Office Depot and get it. Then I thought "check with other Office Depot Store". There is another on 13 miles down the road in Tarpon Springs,I called and what do you know they had plenty of them.
So there and back in a little over an hour and the tv was set up

Yesterday we had baked spaghetti from "Hungey Howies" It was a special price of $3.99 with bread. It was a small,I mean small serving. They bread was larger than the spaghetti.
Today it is stormy weather,with rain and blowing wind. Looks lik a good tv or computer day.

This morning Nancy and I have to go to get some blood drawn to make sure the meds that we are taking and other things are ok. The worse part of it is we can't even have our coffee until we have this over with.

I spent the remainder of the day putting a wardrobe that we bought. We had to have it because we just didn't have enough space for our clothes.
Today will be cleaning up around the outside and trimming the trees. This is an ongoing thing to do. The warm weather is nice but it causes everything to grow fast. Up north thats one thing you didn't have to worry about in the winter time.

Nancy and I are going to eat in tomorrow. A turkey would be to much for us so we are having chicken instead. If course with all the usual "Thanksgiving Day" trimmings.
A little later on I will be watching a UK basketball game.

Frome the doctor we went to Dennys for an early dinner. We do not eat in Dennys very often,but with a coupon that is good for one free meal when you buy one how can you not eat there.
Sunday, November 22, 2009
We went to church today and it was good hearing our preacher deliver a very good sermon. We didn't eat out today. I grilled pork chops together with pepper and onions,baked potato,corn and bread sticks. Very good meal. Reading the Sunday paper and watching a football game at the same time.

We had the Little Caesar "Hot and Ready"pizza. I had a coupon for a free "Crazy Bread" so dinner was cheap today.
We're just about to the point of getting things straightened out that we can take it a little easy now.

After the hard work we did yesterday Nancy and I were more than ready for bed. We slept pretty good considering we were in a different bed.
We had our breakfast of sausage biscuits and coffee. The coffee sure did taste very good this morning.
A little later on we will have to get with it and some more work to do.
We worked again all day long. We spent the biggest part of the day carrying things from the motorhome to the cottage. It is going to take a few weeks before we can begin to relax and enjoy our time here.

The sun is shining nice and bright here at the Flying J. You know it must be Florida when you see all the palm trees. We will get ready to go the last leg of our 6 1/2 month road trip. I will have to say this has been one of my better summers. Everything went just the way it should have and we saw some different and did different things. We got to spend some time with all the family and that is always one of the best things of the trip.

We are finaly back in Florida. The Florida Welcome Center on I-75 now has free wifi and that is where I'm sending this from. We had a nice short visit with Sherry,Mark and Jeremy. Even if we would have stayed 1 or 2 weeks it would have been short.
We got up and had breakfast. After taking a shower I got the car filled up with gas,then took it to get it washed. I then hitched it up to the motorhome. All this was going on while Nancy was getting ready.
I don't know how far we will get today,especially if all the rest areas have free wifi.
We made it to the Flying J on exit 385 for the night. It is only a short distance to our park but we wanted to get there early. We've got a lot to do when we get there and didn't want it to get dark before we got finished.
I checked the other rest areas and it looks as though the Welcome Center is the only place with the wifi. It would be nice if all the rest areas had the wifi.

We went out to check at the Grand Bay Wildlife Management Area to see if maybe sometimes we could take the motorhome and stay. It is nice out there ,but I don't think we will be staying. The roads are dirt and a little rough. It would be ok for someone who tent camps. We are still visiting with Sherry and will be leaving tomorrow for Florida.
Wednesday, November 11, 2009
Today the storm is gone and soon we will be on the road also. We will go all the way to Valdosta to visit with our daugther(Sherry)and family.
We got to the Walmart on Norman Ave. in Valdosta around 3:30 pm. We called Sherry and told her we would bring dinner over. We went into Walmart,bought chicken tenders,potato wedges,cole slaw,macaroni salad and rolls.
Everyone ate and we had a bunch left over for tomorrow. We are now sitting around with Sherry showing us her new netbook computer.
Another great day.

I don't know how much running around Nick will want to do today.
Yesterday when I was talking about "Infolink" I said run your mouse over the words,I forgot a lot of people use the touchpad on their computer. I should have said cursor. The color of the words are red.
Well Nick had to go up to Macon,even though it was still raining hard at times we made it there and back ok. The rain has let up now that we are back so I guess most of the storm "Ida"has passed by.
Here is a statue in Macon of someone. Looks like it may have been some Southern General.

After breakfast he and I went out and did the rounds of the stores again. We didn't get back until close to 3:30 pm. Shortly after we got back---you guessed it. It was time to eat again. It seems all we do when we are here is eat.
We were going to leave tomorrow but with the tropical storm Ida coming in with all the rain and wind its kind of "iffy" now. We will just have to wait and see. The good thing about traveling in and RV fulltime or most time is that you are not on a schedule and you can come and go when you want to.
You may have noticed words that are different color and are double underlined in my blog. This is "Infolinks" it is a new way for people that have web pages and blogs to earn a little money for their effort. When you run your mouse over the words an advertisment pops up, if it looks interesting you click on it and see what its about. Each time someone clicks the blogger gets paid. Maybe from time to time there may be someting that you can use and get it.

The old cover that is cracked and broken. I must have hit a low hanging tree branch.
New vent cover installed. The hardest part of that small project was climbing on and off of the top of the motorhome.

This evening we attended a great performance world tour 09 "Tops in Blue". It is a group of Air Force men and woman that sing,dance and play instruments. They audition
from all the air bases around the country and these are the best of the best. The performance was fantastic. They play more than 120 shows worldwide at Air Force Bases. The show is free. If you ever get a chace to go,you will not be disappointed,but hold on to your seat. It is a high=impact,high=energy show.

We left this morning and after a very short drive of around 30 miles it arrived at my brother Nick's house. It was good to see them again. Joann had a delicious turkey dinner with stuffing,peas,mashed potatoes,gravy and rolls.
Nick and I went out to the BX to do some shopping and then spent the rest of the evening relaxing.
