59 Years

Wow 59 years, today is our anniversary and it is hard to believe that Nancy and I have been married that long.
although we have been happy that long(not without some disagreements at times)we would tell a couple not to get married that young.
Our daughter Sherry did arrived yesterday and we were happy to see her. Nancy and Sherry will be going out today to the Laundromat to do the laundry while I stay home taking it easy watching  a few basketball or football games.
I went to see my family doctor yesterday for a follow up and everything looks normal following a heart attack, he did give me a prescription for nitro tablets just incase I would experience some pain. That's what the doctor did after my first heart attack but I never had to take any of the pills. My blood pressure was the lowest I have seen it at 102/68 so that explains why I was feeling so tired.

Hanging in there

Today makes a week that I had my second stent put in each one of them after a heart attack.  I guess I'm doing ok but its like I'm pulling a weight as I'm walking around. It will just take time before I'm back to any shape.
I took Nancy yesterday to get her blood work and she will see her kidney doctor next week to find out how she is doing. Our daughter Sherry will be here today to take care of us old folks. We tried to tell her we were ok but she insisted on coming anyway.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Christmas meal

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and everything went as planned.  I know if there were some of the little ones around that the excited they had opening their present was contagious and you were as excited.
Nancy outdid herself in the meal we had, she baked a ham, deviled eggs, coleslaw, green beans baked potato, it was a plate full.

Here are the old folks enjoying a quiet meal together. I have to say it was a fine meal.
It will take time for me to mend from the heart attack, they say about eight weeks so I will have to postpone some of the things that I had planned on doing in the next few weeks.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to all of my readers.  As for Nancy and I haven't had a very pleasant time leading up to Christmas.
Nancy having a reaction to the flu shot and me Tuesday  evening having my second heart attack.  It turns out once again 100 percent blockage and cleaning another out. Everything went well I'm back home  and will go through the healing process.  That's all for now it seems like I'm having a rough time typing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctor appointments

Poor Nancy as if she doesn't have enough problems. Friday the day after we took our flu and pneumonia shots she comes down with the flu symptoms, coughing sneezing and aching all over. So when we went to the doctor yesterday he gave her a shot for that and a prescription for some antibiotics. I also got a seven day tab for my aching shoulder. Other than all that we are in good shape. Nancy said she was feeling some what better today.
We have not had our Christmas shopping even started yet but neither of us want anything so no problem there. I'm sure we will be buying a few things for ourselves.
The weather all this week is going to be 82*-84* so now snow for sure but that's why we are here in sunny Florida.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Long day.

Yesterday was a long day for us one thing is that we always get a late start because Nancy with all the pain and exhaustion she has to sit a couple of times to rest while she gets ready.
Nancy has run out of her pain medication so we went to the doctors to see if it would be possible for her to get a prescription for a few pills to last until our appoint the 30 of this month. No such luck but the receptionist did move our appointment up to Monday.
After that we went to Walgreens to get our flu and pneumonia shots and that took more time than it normally does. From that we went down to Safety Harbor to the 1st Quality sausage House for some Hungarian meats and a nut roll. Each time I eat these things it takes me back many years when I was a young kid.
From there it was to the Central Park Restaurant to have something to eat. Then a trip to where else but Walmart you know you have to go to Walmart everytime you get out.
We got back around 6:30 both of us feeling the effects of the day. 
This morning it is much cooler with rain.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Slow week

So far this week the big thing that Nancy and I have done is go to the Laundromat. We have not been to the store all week and I guess we had better go or both of us might start losing some weight.
There are a few lights up in the small park where we are but the park itself doesn't put up any Christmas lights.
The light that people put up on their site look nice.
Santa came thru the park the other day riding on top of a car.
Mickey and Snoopy looks like they hitched a ride in the back. Some people really get in the mood for Christmas which is good.
I finally finished up the shower base last week by gluing tile on the new boards. Sometimes it get a little difficult doing things when you are on the move and have to wait until you are settled in for a while. There are still a few more projects I want to do while we are here in the park for the winter.
The Fantastic Fan that I installed a week or so is working out to be better than we expected. We have not run our airconditioner hardly at all. Its really nice to turn on the  Fantastic fan open a window and feel the breeze flow thru.

Alittle walking

Nancy felt like she wanted to do a little walking so when she is in the mood I'm ready to go.  Even though she feels like walking she tired out quick.
We were at the Port Richey river front Park where you can look out over the bay.
The casino shuttle taking people out on the gulf to the casino ship.
We were only a short time but it was nice and sunny so a good day to be out.  Nancy just stays too tired to do much of anything but with her bad spine and the bad kidneys she does pretty good. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Fan project finished

Yesterday was a good work day for me. First I was waiting on the Fantastic fan with reversible in and out flow 3 speeds with a thermostat. It was delivered at 12:30 so I got started on it right away. I had to take out the old vent and clean up all the caulking before installing the fan. After setting it in place with four screws to hold it steady I came off the motorhome to wire it up to see how everything looked and sounded. Then back on the roof to finish putting all the screws in and going around it with self-leveling dicor. Then back off into the motorhome to check it out.
There she is purring away like a big ole cat, now ain't that pretty. Nancy has been wanting the fantastic fan for a spell now and so she is happy. We do a fair amount of boondocking and parking overnight without electrical hookups so this is going to help a bunch. The high speed takes only 3 amps so with our 325 watts of solar and a good battery bank it will not be a problem running it.

Things to do

Even though we are in the rv park we are still not settled in yet with going to the Laundromat doing the clothes and Nancy going to see her kidney doctor. She told the doctor that the pain medication that she has been taking does not relieve the pain very much. He prescribe her something different to see if it will help her. 
I did get up to the roadside market on route 52 and couldn't believe the great prices they had on the fruit and vegetables. The tomatoes are great tasting and taste like they were just picked off the vine.
We are still trying to get use to the park we are in and I imagine it will take a while after being in the other park for around ten years.  After all nothing stays the same things keep changing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Florida for the winter

We arrived at Tropic Breeze RV Park around 2:00 it took a while to get checked in as they couldn't find the papers where I had a reservation. But they did get a hold of someone that assured them I had a reservation and a deposit for a site.  Let me start out by saying this is an old park that does not have a swimming pool which is fine with us as we very seldom use a pool. The sites are close like when you let out the slide it comes even with the next site but I knew it wasn't a resort by looking at the photos online. I have to say that the people that I have met are very friendly.  This is what they call a mobile home/rv park so there are a lot of permanent residents. The rv's that are here for the winter range from large diesels to the van type.
It looks like the park will serve our purpose for this winter.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

To the winter park

Today is the day we move on to Port Richey and to Tropic Breeze RV Park.  It will be a little strange being at a different park this year after spending around ten years at Orchid Lake first in the motorhome and then in our park model. This will be the first year in seven that we will be spending winter time in the motorhome, but come springtime it will be a lot easier getting ready to leave as we will not have to take things from the park model to the motorhome. Anything to make it easy when you start to put on a few years in life. Just like clothes or shoes no more going in style now it is dressing for comfort.
We will be taking our time(not unusual)getting ready since its only a short distance from Bushnell to Port Richey.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
