It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Overcast Down Day.

Our Location today is Apopka, Florida.

This morning when we got up the weather outside didn’t look too inviting in fact it made you think of finding someplace safe to hide. By 10:00 the skies opened up and for almost an hour we could barely see the traffic on the highway outside our back window. We had slept with most of the windows and vents open through the night but when the rain started you’d have thought that we were going into hibernation.
The roads of Apopka Florida in February. This isn't like any winter we remember.
Even after lunch it wasn’t looking any better so we headed to Walmart because we needed groceries and Kathy needed to look for a couple articles of clothing she had forgot to bring and had to buy here. All that shopping added up to a lot of walking or as some would say exercise that we were in need of. As we neared the doors to leave we looked outside to see it pouring rain again. Because we can’t park the truck too close to the store we started tying the bags closed so our purchases wouldn’t get wet. Seconds later we walked out the door to wet pavement, no more rain and the sun was trying to come out.
Seeing Weather like this just makes you want to hitch up and hit the road.
By the time we got back to the trailer and put everything away we decided we had a taste for a pizza which we haven’t had for a while. Down the road to Pizza Hut we were able to enjoy a nice relaxing supper that wasn’t that expensive and we didn’t have any dishes to wash.    
Enjoying looking at these trees everywhere we go in Florida.
We’re a little behind in acknowledging a few of our new followers so that is what Kathy and I would like to do at this moment. First we like to welcome Chuck and Anneke from the blog goldenshoeRV trip. These fellow RVers have been full timing for over 5 years and bloggers for over 6 years. They recently downsized their big class A rig to a smaller B class affording them more miles at less cost so they can continue their explorations of this wonderful country. Next we’d like welcome Julie and Tom from the blog RV and Outdoor Adventures of Julie and Tom who have been enjoying their outdoor exploration of the national parks in northern Florida by kayak this month. And last we’d like to welcome Mello Mike but unfortunately didn’t leave us any blogger information so we could give a shout out for other readers to see what you’re up to but again thanks to all of you for following along.
We have ponds like this at home in the summer.
But we don't have signs like this.
Or Sunrises like this.
Now I need to make an apology to one of our followers who signed in as Ernie S. The day I welcomed him as a follower we were probably rushed and when I didn’t see any blogger information that is what I stated. Yesterday I was reviewing followers’ profiles and read what it said on his profile and I instantly wanted to kick myself. Sorry Ernie! To everyone else Ernie and I started our apprenticeships in the same trade on the same day and worked together for 30 + years. I’ll be seeing him again the second week of May.

Finishing a busy day on the Gulf of Mexico/
Can't beat these Sunsets
The sun never did come out today and we didn’t even take any pictures either so I’m sure you’ll enjoy some of the pictures from our photo album tonight. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You list tick removal as a skill on your resume.


  1. Love the rainy days, great for relaxing and getting other things done. Sure beats the cold and snow.

  2. Looks like you made the best out of the rainy day. Like George said sure beats the cold and snow.

  3. Rainy days are good for doing exactly the things you did! I would add a nap in there too!

    Hope it's sunny today and you have a great week!

  4. Rainy days are also good for grabbing a comfy afghan and curling up with a warm cup of coffee and a good book.
