Anothe day

Nancy had a early appointment to have a ultrasound, so that meant another morning without breakfast.
But that was ok it also was breakfast eating out again. This time it was a late breakfast at the Sunny Side Up Restaurant, which only a half mile from where Nancy had her ultrasound.
As it turned out our breakfast was just as good and a little less costly than the Breakfast Club the other day.  And on top of that more food, a bowl of gravy, extra piece of bacon for Nancy, larger sausage patties for me.

After getting back home I continued working on the motor home remodeling which looks like is going to take up most of my time this winter.
Did I mention I'm more than kind of slow.  Well these days I just get tired really quick.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Busy Morning

With the Thanksgiving ham that was too much for Nancy and I to eat I sliced the rest of it off the bone.  We had four packages that were sliced to go in the freezer for a later date to eat.

Saturday was football and basketball time for me, which took up most of the day.

Yesterday I did get some time to work on taking one bench seat loose of the dinette.  They had more screws holding it than was needed.  But of course there were many that was suppose to go in the floor that were short and only the carpet was holding at that point.

This morning we went to the Gulf Coast Medical Clinic to have our blood drawn and Nancy had to have a chest x-ray.
Next we stopped to have breakfast at the Breakfast Club.  It is not a Breakfast Club but a restaurant.
This was our first time eating there and we enjoyed it and will be back.
The price was good for what we had, so was the food and the service.

Our next stop was Walgreen's to get our flu and  pneumonia shots.
That took up half the day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Very good day

I hope all you people had a good Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much.  Or you may be like me and try to eat up most of the food so you will not have to eat it all week.

When I got this potato out of the bag to peel it so we could cook it, I notice it was looking at me with its lips sticking out ready to say something.  It looked like a potato head straight out of the bay.
I didn't hear it say anything , so I went ahead and peeled it.

We put the ham and potatoes in the Instant Pot to cook together and that worked out to be good.
Nancy did the sides while the Ham, potatoes were cooking.

So with the ham and potatoes, the sides of green beans, sweet potatoes, pickle eggs and hot rolls we had a very nice and quite dinner.

after dinner we watched a movie then took us a short Thanksgiving Day nap. It was a very nice day for us with each of our children calling us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all

First thing today I give my readers a big Happy Thanksgiving and also to the rest of your family.

Nancy and I will have our own time here in the motorhome as we prepare our meal for the day.
We chose to have ham with sides instead of turkey this year because we like ham better.

Since 2000 we have been fulltiming only on a couple of times with friends we have had just the two of us having dinners.  But we always talk about when our children growing up and we lived close to Nancy's two sisters.  We would have around no less than 20 people enjoying a big Thanksgiving dinner.  With Nancy and her sisters fixing different things we would have a big table full of food.

Anyway leading up to today Nancy and I went shopping Monday but first I had an appointment with my cardiologist that check me over and said all my numbers and test were good so he would see me in six months.

While I was seeing the doctor Nancy was getting ready.  The first stop was to Cracker Barrel to get us something to eat.
Then I dropped Nancy off at Walmart while I went to Rural King to lick up a few things.
I went back to Walmart, you talk about crowded. The place was packed and I sure was glad the Nancy was about finished.  Some of the people were getting a little angry not being able to get through the lanes and they were letting others know about it. Not a very good place to be.

We were soon on our way home and glad to be out of that crowd.

After getting home putting away the groceries  it was time to relax for the evening.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A good Saturday

I had a little shopping to do at the different stores Saturday before the college ball games came on.

First thing though I had to go south to the stores but really had to go north to make a U turn to get into the south bound lane.

My first stop was to Dollar Tree to get a couple of brushes for the painting.

Next up was Ollie's Bargain Outlet for a couple of things and as usual I like to walk through  looking at the different things they have from time to time.

Next up was to Winn√Dixie to by some good fresh sliced cooked ham at $1.99 a pound.

By the time I got back home it was time to settle in and watch the college ball games.

Looking out the window I thought it was a good way to end a very relaxing day with that beautiful sunset.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

More work

I have not been painting for the last couple of days, something else came up.
We've had a water leak down one side of the front slide out which had to have my taking care of first.
I knew it was bad but it was more so than I thought (isn't that always true).
I had to rework a small section of the wall and put on a new surface to be painted.

I also had to go to Lowes to get the wall panel I thought was best for what I wanted.  I also needed a few more tools than I had for doing this work.

Our motor home looks like it is upside down and I told Nancy it will be like this until I finish.
It takes a lot longer to do this kind of work when you are in your rv fulltiming  and have to shift thins around while you are working.  But we will get through with it as long as it takes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A Big thank you.

We are observing Veterans Day today and just can't say enough to thank all the vets.

If you really want to see what the cost of freedom is, take a walk through a  National Cemetery. 

                                  Thank you Vets

Game Day

Still doing the primer on the walls which looks like will take longer than I thought.
Of course I have to take breaks in the mean time like going to the store and there is the laundry which I take to the laundromat to dry.  It helps quite a bit that Nancy is able to do the washing and spin drying in the little Washer/Spin Dryer we have.

I will probably take the day off today to watch the college football games that are on the tv.
And go to the store for some of the week-end specials they are having.

Here is a photo of the sunset we had the other evening looking from our patio.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctor's Report

Well the Big Day of the election is over and I'm sure glad it is.  All the ads on the tv were so many they hardly had time to show anything else.
Watching all the election ads you would think there are no honest people in our government and no honest people running for office.

As far as the college basketball goes the opening of the season was something to watch.
It looks as though some teams are already in there prime and others still have work to do.

We also went to the doctor for our checkup with Nancy doing about the same.
I had to have an x-ray of my right hip joint and back.  The x-ray showed no broken bones or anything out of place.  What it did show that the hip bone has some arthritis and the back has bone spurs on each vertebrae.  So it looks like a little pain medication for me.

With our motorhome being 17 years old Nancy and I decided it was time to do a little inside modifications.  With me being closer to 81 then 80 we know it will be a slow process, but hey we've got the whole winter to work on it.
So yesterday I started putting the primmer paint on the wall. "Oh my this is going to take a while".

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Big Day

Today Nancy and I have our regular getting back to Florida appointment to check us out. 
I've got the right hip joint that has been a pain for a couple of months that needs checking.
It has been such a pain that I can't  self up.  So I know an x-ray is probably taken. 
Also both of us will have some blood work on the order.

Today is a big day for people in the USA with the voting going on and most of them watching the results on the tv.
It is also my big day because the College Basketball Season starts today.

Is this a big day for you? 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Big Storm

We had a rough day weather wise yesterday.  We had thunderstorms with high winds and lightning plus warnings of four different tornadoes.  I didn't take down the patio awning but I wished I would have. The wind was giving it a workout and we thought it was going to tear it off, but it held its ground.

This Dollar General Store didn't fare as well with a broken door window.  Several houses had trees blown down on the roofs and carports smashed up.

Today is a different story as the sun is shinning nice and bright.

Thanks for atopping by and have a great day.

We got a Fireplace

Yesterday the morning time started out as usual, catching up on reading the morning blogs to see what everyone was doing. Reading the home town paper to see who was doing what and to go over the obituaries looking to see if we have lost any friends.

By the time I was finished on the computer Nancy had our waffles ready.  I decided I would try a banana on mine.  I've always just put syrup on mine so adding a banana was new for me.  I'm glad I did because it really tasted so good.
With breakfast out of the way it was time to do a little shopping.  My first stop was the roadside market where I bought a couple of cucumbers and a small tray of apples.

Then a stop at the Ollies Outlet Store. I bought us a small electric fireplace, its the kind that has the rotating flames and is soothing to watch.  Our small heater that we had stopped working a week ago and we have had it for several years so it was time for a new one.

Next stop was Save A Lot for a few groceries including can items.

After getting back home, putting away the things that I bought, it was time for other things.
Rolling out the patio awning and anchoring it down was the first in order because Nancy says it feels more like we are settled in when the awning is out.
The site that we are on is no level so letting down the levelers the steps are to high for Nancy and I have to have a small platform under the bottom step.

Later on in the evening we had a peanut butter sandwich to go with the good homemade soup that Nancy had made for us. She always makes enough for several days, so I know what we are having for supper today.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
