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.

Two For One.

Our Location today is Sugar Loaf Key, Florida, USA.

After having a very restful nights’ sleep we both woke up feeling tired. Kathy also woke up with a headache and backache and could only think that it was an after effect from all the walking we did on Saturday. 

We were very surprised when we heard from other RVers that were here in the park yesterday that they didn’t have any rain here at all. While just ten miles away Kathy and I were caught in the torrential downpour that we described in last night’s blog. 

We used this morning to get caught up on the computers until there was suddenly a knock on the door. Our neighbor Billie had just arrived home and as promised he had gone out this morning to replace our broken sewer connection he had accidentally broken the other day. What was comical was that he not only replaced the one that he broke but he bought two in case someone else accidentally steps on it again so we’d have a backup. Minutes later Billie was helping me to replace the fitting on our sewer hose. It’s nice you can still take some people for their word. 

By the time I went back in the trailer Kathy had made lunch and she said it was all left overs and it was true. Now most of you are probably cringing at that thought and I for one have eaten many a leftover that I would have preferred to have not eaten. What Kathy does is recreate those foods and it’s like you are eating those foods for the first time. When she says we’re eating leftovers I actually look forward to it. 

Kathy’s headache wasn’t subsiding so she laid down to take a nap and when she finally woke up later the headache was gone. It’s been over a week since we arrived at this park and longer since I’d done the laundry so that was my chore this afternoon. Since the laundry room is an open walled facility made between the men’s and women’s shower houses while I was waiting for the laundry I did a couple of number puzzles while a cooling breeze cooled the area down. I also talked to Don a gentleman from Connecticut who had waited to head south until the middle of February. There was so much snow around his fifth wheel that it’s still in Connecticut and he and his wife are staying in a trailer that the park rents out. He won’t be waiting to head south so late next year. 

Kathy continues to research things we can do here in the Keys while we are here this year. Some are good others not our cup of tea but we are busy. Just a while ago we were talking of what we could be doing tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Who Are You on the Chessboard of Work?


The king is a former closer who is in over his or her head. Most great Kings are actually good Bishops. Most good closers never make good Kings, Bishops, political little meddlesome types, usually make the best bosses. They need talented people around them, because unlike closers, they don't really know how to do anything themselves. Bishops are excellent Kings because they choose people whom they admire, but can control, and they are slippery enough to pass blame off when failure rears its ugly head.

  1. A few suggestions for things to do.

    Take a tour of Pigeon Key. It's a wonderful 2 mile bike ride (or walk) along a beautiful bridge.

    Have you seen the Tarpon feeding in Islamorada, at Robbies Marina? That's incredible.

    There is a Seafood Festival in Marathon this week-end...will be a lot of folks there.

    The turtle museum (not the turtle hospital) and Dry Tortugas museum on Key West. Both are free or donation only.

    Maybe an eco kayak tour around the mangroves in Key West?

    A sunset sail, dinner cruise in KW?

    Windley Key State Park. Indian Key State Park and Lignumvitae Key State Park. They have ranger guided tours.

    We love Bahia Honda State park. There is a beautiful old bridge you can walk on and it's beautiful at sunset. They have a nice beach, a gift shop, snorkeling trips, nice bike trails.

    Hope this helps. We're working on the boat today. Not exciting, but necessary.
