62 years

Yeah, 62 years is a long time, but these years have passed fast.

Today is Nancy and my Anniversary of marriage.  To think at that time people said we were too young and that it would not work.  I guess after this many years it is safe to say they were wrong.

We didn't have a large fancy wedding.   Our wedding day consisted of going down to the county court house, looking up the county court clerk who performed the marriage.  We had one person that was Nancy's brother in law as a witness.  After the clerk married us I gave him $5.00 and that was it.
I will have to say that was the best $5,00 I have ever spent.

Our New Year Eve celebration will be the same it has been through the years with a quite time staying home just the two of us.

I wish all of you a very healthy and Happy New Year to you and yours.

Thank all of your for being here through the years with me for without you there would be no blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Long day

Nancy felt like getting out yesterday she needed a haircut so I think that was the reason.

So she went to Great Clips up in Spring Hill.  I sat in the car until she was finished with her haircut.
Then from there we went to Cracker Barrel to eat and used the gift card that we received for Christmas.  Of course we chose to eat breakfast as we do most of the time.

Then I dropped Nancy off at Walmart while I went to check on a few items at Harbor Freight with no luck in finding anything.
From there I went across the street to Rural King to by the brand of potato chips that they sale.

I guess I took longer than I thought because after getting back to Walmart Nancy had all of her shopping only for a few more items.  And the poor lady was really tired and ready to go back home.
By the time we did get home, unloaded the things she bought it was in the dark of day.

After putting everything away it was time to fall into our usual routine of watching tv and our evening computer time.

Today I will watch a couple of basketball games folowed by a couple of football games.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Merry Christmas To All

Yes, to all my blog reader's a very Merry Christmas to you and your love ones.
I'm so glad you took the time to visit my.

Nothing new on this end, we will spend a quiet and relaxing day around the house.
It seems as though we are doing more and more times like this.  We are at the age now that we can remember when we were young we always wondered why the old people had to sit around most of the time.

Nancy is going to put together a nice beef stew in the Instant Pot today for us to eat.
I will enjoy eating that and watching tv and napping.

I will not be doing anything in the house until the holidays are over.  With having to move things out in the middle of the floor and leaving them a few days until the space is finished would be hard to get round.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

All in a day

Sorry folks but when I say things are going slow I mean like real slow.  Nancy and I both expected this project would be on the slow side and I told her it might take the winter season until its finished.

So, in the mean time to the rest of the story is going to the store, checking mail, taking out garbage to the dumpsters and all the rest of the normal things in life.

I made a trip up to Rural King which is in Spring Hill to buy some of their of potato chips, but would you know it?  You guessed it, they were sold out.
Since I tried  the chips they have become my favorite ones to eat.  The chips are cooked somewhere between kettle cooked and regular chips with a real good taste.  And another good part is you get a big bag for $1.99 instead of the $4.29 a bag the other brands are.

I have been putting off buying lettuce because the price was not right (for me).
Winn Dixie had the price of $2.49 a head, Walmart at $1.68.  So I went to Save A Lot while it was on the way and the had the price of $1.19 and I bought it at that price.

Yesterday I raise our patio awning, because of the weather report of an incoming storm with high winds.  I'm glad I did because it poured the rain all night and the wind is supposed to come later on in the day.  There are several tornado warnings for the counties south of us.

I moved the dinette booth back out and primed the walls then put it back in.  I will still have to do that maybe three or four more times with the final coat of paint and the flooring.  All the things to do over and over again in order to use while working on this project.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Work days and Rest days

Going to the store sometimes seem like an every day occurrence.  At least the grocery store is only a couple of miles down the road.

But all those trips knock me out of working on the motor home.  Which is taking longer than I had planned it would.
The priming of the walls is coming along though.  With having to take down the window blinds and putting them back up until its time to put the coat of paint on takes up time.
And of course now its coming to do that to the dinette with the table and seats.  Then the sofa with all the things we have stored under it.
Doing all of this with living full time in the motor home is quite a chore.
Of course we knew it would take time in knowing how quick I tire out these days.

Today it will be college basketball games where I will be watching them on the tv.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctors and Doctors

Nancy's kidney doctor wanted a copy of her bloodwork before she was to be there for her appointment in case there was something else needed to be checked.
So I ran a copy off of the results and we took it down to her to look at.  As a result she still has to have some more blood drawn because the kidney doctor needed something else checked.

Then it was a stop at the doctors office where Nancy was the other day, they were suppose to call a prescription in which they didn't do.  So they said it would be called right in.

By that time it was time to eat and we decided to go to Chili's to have supper.  We had their version of chicken fingers and it was really good and more than enough so we brought half of it home for another time to eat.

On the way back home we stopped off at the Walgreens to pick up the medicine the doctors office had called in.
After getting back home by which time it was dark we both pulled our shoes off and relaxed after a half of the day from running around.

The weekend consisted of watching college basketball games.  Some good and others not so good.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Bloodwork report

The doctor showed Nancy her results of the bloodwork up and she was surprised that her numbers were better than she expected.  So we were happy about that.

As far as mine went the numbers had gone up a little since the last time I had blood work done.
Not very much but enough that I do want them down in the normal range they should be.
Most of them can be corrected by changing my eating pattern.

Yesterday I filled up the tank on the car the first time since it was filled up in Georgia.
I filled up at the Shell Station where I used my "Rewards Card"  with the price being 187.9.
That was a 25 cent discount from the price of 212.9, it sure did fell good to pay less than $2.00 and more a gallon.

From there it was to Walgreen to pick up our meds I thought, but they didn't have all of them ready.
So I went to Winn√Dixie to do some things we needed while they finished up the prescriptions.

After getting back home and having a light lunch Nancy started washing our laundry in our small washer/spin dryer.  After she had a good load washed and spin dried I took it down to the laundromat here at the park to dry completely. The small washer takes two loads washing before it is one dryer load.

By sunset yesterday it looked like it was going to be a cold night and it was.
This morning it was 36˚ I know that's not cold, but hey folks this is Florida.  You know the sunshine state.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Sorta busy

It was a slow weekend in that I did no work on the remodeling.

I started Saturday off with a nice breakfast of ham and eggs, hash browns, cut up Hungarian hot peppers, biscuit and jelly and coffee.

But I was real busy watching some college ball games and eating hot dogs.  For some reason hot dogs are one of my favorite foods.
Reasoning may be that all through high school my mom had a little snack bar beside the school that kept her busy.  And after being there all day she was not going to be home the rest of the evening fixing supper for my brother, me and herself so we had hamburgers or hot dogs from the snack bar.
Being teenagers my brother and I didn't mind this as any teenager would love to have a choice of hot dogs or hamburgers for a meal.

Mom was a great cook, so weekends we would have nice big meals. She would have fried chicken that would put  Kernel Sanders to shame.

Nancy and I have an appointment tomorrow to go in and see the results of our bloodwork. 
Nancy's may change from time to time but mine usually stays the same.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
