WOW--63 Years

Today makes 63 years that the love of my life and I got married. 

Nancy and I are still working on our marriage, because when we decided to get married some of our people said it would not work longer than six months.
Yeah we were young with Nancy being 17 and me at 18 it was hard at times.
But the both of us believed in the marriage vowels we took.


We celebrated our Anniversary  by going to the Hibachi Grill and Buffet.
Here Nancy looks happy with her plate full.

And here's mine, I don't eat much, well starting out that is.  I like to get a half cup of the noodles and then add Won Ton soup.

Then here comes my first plate of food.

Then the second smaller plate of food.

Then my dessert, which looks happy to see me.  A couple of donuts, a little pineapple and a couple of  baked coconut cookies.

I don't have to tell you we always enjoy the meal here and we get there early enough for the early bird

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Enjoyable Day

Yesterday I went to the Winn Dixie to get a few groceries a little early because I had my day planned.
I mean like a full day with basketball starting at 11:30 am and football finishing up at midnight.

Isn't being retired good at times, when you can set your day doing what you want no matter what day it is?

If you like college sports of football and basketball, this is a good time for you in the calendar year.
Nancy even got into one of the basketball games with me which she rarely does.

There is at least one basketball game that I will watch today and maybe more, with nothing else scheduled.

Its a good day to stay inside with the air-conditioner anyway with the warmer temperature outside.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Christmas dinner

I hope everyone's Christmas was a very pleasant day for them with their family and friends.

I know a lot of you probably over ate too much, but like we say each year we will start our diet at the start of the new year.

Nancy and I had a nice little dinner consisting of baked ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, and of course this with some onion to add to the taste,
As always we did over eat just a little .

After our meal we just relaxed for the day with our quite time.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Merry Christmas

Monday I went to a couple of stores to get a few groceries that we needed since Nancy wanted to prepare our Christmas dinner. 
First was Walmart which was really over crowded with people and their loaded down shopping carts.
But it wasn't to bad since I decided That I would not let it all "get to me".

Next up was to Save A Lot to finish up the shopping.  When I came out of Save A Lot it was raining and had turned very cold.
I was glad that my shopping was finished for the day with the weather turning so cold and raining and all the traffic on the road.

As I mentioned above with Nancy doing our dinner we will be staying home for the next few days.
We always like our special time together.

At this time I would like to wish all my readers- A Merry Christmas may you have a very great day.

Oh, the traffic

Nancy and I did go down to the 1st Quality Sausage House where I bought a bag of different kind of meats and also a homemade nut roll.  I have to say this is not your regular store kind of package things you buy. 
All the meat are prepared there in the back part of the store.

The store is a family run store and the will ship to you anywhere in the USA.

That was the good part of our day, but then there is the other part of our day.
All I need to say about that is we had bumper to bumper traffic all the way there and back.
Like I mean three lanes full.

Nancy and I had supper at the Paradise Restaurant in Safety Harbor.
It was a surprise when we saw the special of the day was Hungarian Goulash.  So we both had the special making it a full Hungarian day for us. 

Yesterday I got out and went to five different stores to buy some groceries and getting some other things.
I just hope I will not have to go to many more times out while people are doing their Christmas shopping.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Weather has turned

Well the 80 degree weather did not last long enough.  After starting the week with the temperatures in the 80's, yesterday the high was 55 and that is cold for us here in Florida.
When we checked the temperature this morning it was down to 43.
So yesterday was a stay inside day for us, well most of the day anyway.  I did need to go to the post office to send out some important mail.
And also I checked our mail down at the club house where they have our mail in separate boxes.

Nancy and I will be going down to Safety Harbor to the 1st Quality Sausage House to pick up some meats that are prepared Hungarian style.  Beside the Hungarian meats they also have German and Polish meats.  The meats taste just like the ones we had homemade when I was a young child, brings back a lot of memories when I eat of all the different meats they have.

So that will be an all day venture for us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Getting through the days

I did get to watch a couple of college basketball games Saturday and even sneak in a game or two Sunday.

I guess its ok to take off a day or two every now and then.

This week has started off with Nancy and I both getting a haircut.  First we had out breakfast and talked of what we were going to do. 
After deciding how we were going to get into the day, I got ready and headed out to get my haircut.
When I got back home I took a shower as I always do when I get a haircut.  I just can't stand to have loose hair on my neck all day long and be bothered with it.

After Nancy got ready we took off to Great Clips for her haircut and she timed it just right.
Nancy usually has to pay $11.99 to get her haircut but not this time.  When the lady was finished cutting her hair she gave Nancy a coupon for $5.00 off.   So it was just the regular price for Nancy after the coupon and the tip Nancy gave her.

On the way home I stopped at the Burger King and picked up a special 2 for $6.00 Sandwich to take out for our supper.

Today its back to the doctor to see what is going on with Nancy's neck, she had an x-ray last week and of course they have to let the Radiologist read it and see what he/she says about it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A full week

Oh my, where did this week go?

Well I guess I will tell you about it if I can remember.

Nancy and I both had doctor appointments, like both of us went to see one doctor for our coming back checkups.
We where about the same, well as same as old people can stay in the 6-7 months we have been gone.
We did get our prescriptions to fill our medicine.   Nancy found out that a couple of her strong meds for the pain she has now can only filled for one month at a time. 
That will be a problem when we are on the road?

Then Nancy had an appointment with her Nephrologist, which she told Nancy that her numbers had improved.  So Nancy is holding on with her being in the 4th stage of kidney failure.

We also took care of three loads of laundry, that took up most of the day as each doctor appointments did.

Then I did the small things that take time, going to the store, fuel up the car, going to the post office, you know, don't forget to take the garbage to the dumpster and all those things that take time.

I'm taking part of the day off, I'm going to watch me a couple of college basketball games!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Have things to do

The weather has warmed up and I'm able to put on the short pants and have done so for several days now.

With a day starting out like this with sunshine its no time to stay inside.

I've been going to the stores to get somethings that we have in need of.
The last couple of days I've been to--[get ready here it comes]--Best Hardware Store, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Save-A-Lot, Ollie's, Flowers Bakery Outlet, Rural King, Publix, Dollar General, Little Caesar's and maybe one that I missed.
Hey no wonder my legs hurt!

The temperatures are going to be in the low 80's and night time no lower than 60.
We went to sleep with the window open over our heads last night.

Today maybe will not be a busy day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Things are slow

Yeah things are slow around here!
Well maybe not that slow.  I have been flushing and cleaning the tanks out.
Getting somethings at the Dollar General that is located on the next street corner from the rv park.
Then of course there's the Walmart that has to have a visit every so often.

The temperature has been in the middle 60's with sun shine for the day time and down to the middle 40's for the night time.

Nancy has been setting up our doctor appointments.  Other than that its just every day things.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day.

Sitting still for the winter

After Nancy and I were ready Saturday I went out to disconnect all of our full hookup attachments we were ready to roll on down the road.  I hooked up the car Friday evening so that was a little time saver.

Saturday was a beautiful day for traveling with the sun shinning and the temps just right for the day.
Only one thing is from the time we got on I-75 the traffic was more than I like, but that is the fast road.
You always have the ones that still want to be ahead of everyone else.  They go from lane to lane weaving in and out of all the three lanes on the interstate.
Nancy and I had to laugh when we saw two cars with their Christmas trees on top of the cars passed us at least three times.

After an hour on the road I told Nancy with all the traffic I was amazed that we haven't seen any accidents.  Well that came about twenty minutes later.

The first one was where one car ran into the back of another, and I mean they both were lik a couple of  accordions.

In the second accident was two cars with one on them setting on its top.
The traffic was bumper to bumper with stop and go for at least ten miles and maybe more.

It was 3:30 when we at to Bushnell, Florida and with the crowded interstate, I thought it a good idea to just call it a day by spending the night at the Walmart.

We had a good nights sleep with some more of the overnighters.

After getting ready we were on our way again, but not as much traffic yesterday.

It was a short time on the road and soon we were pulling into our campground for the winter.
After getting everything set up on our site we were ready to relax from the travel times on the road.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
