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.

Change of Plans.

Our Location today is Sevierville, Tennessee.

Last night we really lucked out and didn’t even need to run the heaters to keep warm while we slept. When I finally got up at 7:30 I felt quite comfortable. It was strange though when Kathy got up just before 8:00 she said she felt cold. Normally it is Kathy that is always saying she is too warm. 

During breakfast we spoke of trying to get our Verizon mess cleared up but with our hitting the road on Monday it would be nearly impossible. After some discussion we decided to extend our stay here at Sevierville. Once we’d read our morning blogs and E-mails we walked up to the office to do just that if our site was not reserved. If we would have had to move sites we would just hit the road. We lucked out so now we won’t leave until Tuesday. 

Back at the trailer I immediately called Chris at Verizon in Inverness Florida to let him know our change of plans. Chris has been trying his best to straighten things up for us. He informed me that Gary the manager of the Verizon outlet in Sevierville would not be in until Monday so that’s when he’ll be calling him. All I know is that somebody will put this credit on our account how I don’t care. 

Kathy started making her Taco Soup while I started emptying the refrigerator and freezer. Yesterday we had noticed frost building on the cooling fins inside the fridge. We’ve been running it non-stop since arriving in Florida but we did the same last year and didn’t have this happen. I figure that this year we were in areas of higher humidity and each time the fridge or freezer is opened the humidity builds up inside.

By lunch time we had everything put back in the fridge and Kathy had finished making the Taco Soup. Kathy always says the soup taste better after it sits a day or two so guess what we didn’t have for lunch. Instead I fired up the Weber and grilled some hotdogs for lunch. Everything tastes better cooked on the Weber. 

After lunch and checking the computers we decided to be lazy for a while but to sit outside under the awning. We enjoy talking to one another and people watching. There were also a number of rigs pulling in for the night. 

As the time wore on I again fired up the Weber before adding some nice thick Spareribs and Sweet Potatoes. Using the proven method of low and slow given by George it took nearly an hour for everything to be done to perfection. Kathy had sautéed some Spinach to finish off the meal and it was all delicious. 
After supper we again sat outside enjoying the fresh air and the sounds of children playing a few sites over. Since we’ll be here an extra day we’ll just have to find something to do tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
