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.

Exploring Big Pine Key and Chores.

Our Location today is Sugarloaf Key, Florida.

Last night it just seemed things were popping up on the computer so I kept working to make it right. Kathy couldn’t keep her eyes open and was in bed by 11:00 but it was nearly 1:30 before I joined her. There is definitely something about the sea air that we’re breathing here in the Keys because I slept until 8:30 and it was over thirty minutes before Kathy woke up. 

We had plans but Kathy was wanting to do chores before the errands. Finally I convinced her to rethink the order before it got too hot since we’d both be walking out in the direct sunshine. Since Doug and Nancy were heading back to Key West today it was just the two of us. 

By 11:00 we were back at the Flea Market in Big Pine Key. The main idea was just to walk for exercise while keeping our eyes peeled for those special bargains that we just couldn’t leave behind. Kathy walked away empty handed where I found electrical connectors that are hard to find and the price for twelve was the price I’d pay for two back home. 

The heat was starting to get to Kathy and we still needed to do groceries but when the road was heading in the same direction as the No Name Pub we changed our minds on where to go next. Last night it was packed but we were able to get a freshly vacated table on the patio. Today there were no seats anywhere but suddenly two people were leaving at the bar so guess where we sat. As shown in many photos there is not a bit of the ceiling that is not covered by dollar bills that have been autographed and left by people from all over North America. 
Sorry about the missing pieces but we were hungry.
Today we finally ordered their Hawaiian pizza but because the place was packed with a turnover crowd that never left any seats empty it was nearly forty minutes before our pizza arrived. All the food is prepared fresh but the wait was worth it because when we tasted it we both agreed that it was the best Hawaiian pizza we’d ever eaten.    

It was nearly 2:30 by the time we got to the local Winn Dixie but we delayed going in while we watched the Key Deer walking through the parking lot. By the time we filled our water jug and got the necessary groceries it was after 4:00 by the time we got back to the trailer. 

Now playtime was over and while Kathy put the groceries away I gathered the laundry and headed over to the laundromat. There was only a slight delay for another washer but no problem with the dryers. 

By the time I had half the clothes folded I saw Doug and Nancy walking by. Talking to them they had got an earlier start than the other day and came back earlier to avoid a crowded bus ride back. They were planning on Skyping home tonight so we should see them tomorrow. 

It was 7:00 by the time we had the last of the Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for supper. 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

As soon as you get into a hot tub, everyone else gets out.


  1. We've only been to the No Name Pub once and we weren't overly impressed so we haven't been back. Maybe we should give it another try.

    Another good place is Coco's Kitchen. It's by Winn Dixie in Big Pine. They have really yummy Cuban sandwiches.

  2. Looks like another fun day, we enjoy checking out the local places for interesting, food, decor and atmosphere.
