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.

See You, Solar Box and Rodeo.

Our Location today is Moore Haven, Florida.

Last night we battened down the hatches when the rain started coming down in order to keep some of the dampness out of the trailer. Even with no windows open it was a tad chilly when I got up at 7:00 with the outside temperature reading 50 F (10 C) but not uncomfortable. We had our coffees and English Muffins while watching the Weather report to see that it would turn into a great day for me to finish the Solar Connection box on the roof.

First by 8:30 we were donning our jackets and walking over to Elaine and Rick’s to say see you later to Joe and Carolyn Segler as they were headed over to Orlando today. We all got together for coffee and cinnamon buns that Elaine baked fresh for a final gab fest. Elaine even twisted Joe’s arm to have a piece of Sour Orange Pie that she’d frozen when she bought it a few weeks ago. That was his downfall and he couldn’t resist. 
With the final handshakes and hugs we headed back to the trailer where I started to modifying the waterproof box that will house the Solar Connections on the roof. Since the resort finally delivered a picnic table to us the other day I set to work making certain everything would go together perfectly. By that time Kathy had already put together an early and healthy lunch for us trying to offset those times we do have to eat out. Our Chicken, Fruit Salad was delicious and filling topped off with a Mango for dessert.

Now I had to go up on the roof and install my creation. It did take a bit longer than I’d anticipated due to the fact that my tube of silicon sealer was starting to harden in the tube but with perseverance we made certain everything was solid and waterproof. 
Tonight we got together with Elaine, Rick, Debby and Karen and went over to Moore Haven to attend their yearly Rodeo. We left around 4:30 so we could shop around some of the vendors and enjoy carnival type food for supper. (Good thing we ate healthy earlier!)
We spent time wandering around the vendor’s area and some of us actually tried to bring back days from our youth. Around 6:00 we headed over to the Rodeo Arena to find comfortable seats for the main event. 

This rodeo was pitting teams from all the local ranches that competed for points in everything from relay races, to steer roping, to barrel racing, wild horse riding and finally the big event the Bull Riding competition. If you thought the steers had attitudes the bulls were even going after the riders horses. All in all it was an enjoyable evening and fun was had by all in attendance. 

Tomorrow temperatures are supposed to be back to normal so we don’t know what we might be doing. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. We are headed for the Rodeo Parade and then the Houston BBQ Cookoff. The Rodeo goes on for three weeks here in Houston. We will visit it one day soon. Rodeos are so much fun. I wish everyone could attend them at least once.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog!! Yes, we are getting our solar panels. We had them on our sailboat a few years ago. Kirby set those up where he could angle them but found it made no difference so these he is setting flat. We are certainly looking forward to going some places we couldn't go last year without power. We leave one month from today to go to SC and our grandson's college graduation. From there we will head north and west and then back here for next winter. We LOVE Yuma!
