It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Relaxing Day Gone Busy.

Our Location today is Punta Gorda, Florida, USA.

Throughout last night after we got home from posting the blog we needed to run a cube heater to dry the moisture from inside our trailer because of all the rain we’ve had the Humidity level was 100%. That didn’t make for as restful a night’s sleep as the nights when we slept with the windows open. That also meant that Kathy slept later to make up for her restless night.

Since we don’t want to take the chance to overrun our data plan on our hotspot we did something that we haven’t done in quite some time this morning. Once we were dressed we were busy reading. Kathy then made the suggestion that we do the laundry today rather than waiting until we arrived in the Keys. So with a change of plans for our lazy day I started sorting the clothes. We also took the time to have lunch before leaving the trailer.

At the Laundromat in Punta Gorda the place was packed with people who only have the weekends to do such a chore. Hoping that I’d get this done early was a mistake. Kathy managed to do a lot of reading while I finished a number puzzle while the wash was being done. It was past 3:30 by the time we headed back to the trailer putting up with the rush hour traffic of those trying to escape their 9 to 5 jobs.

After getting the clothes put in their proper spots and saying our See-Ya’s to the neighbors that we’ve become friends with I returned to the trailer to start writing most of today’s happenings down in the form of our post.

It was nearly 6:00 by the time we arrived at the McDonalds to make our final post for this month but for some reason or another my computer was extremely hot when I took it out of its carrying case and would not fire up. On the way home we did stop to top off our fuel tanks so we can get an early start in the morning and not have to worry about that chore. We’ve also been busy when we got back to the trailer closing up as much as possible tonight. Tomorrow we leave Punta Gorda and head for Sugar Loaf Key. I’m taking the chance of posting from the trailer tonight hoping I don’t exceed our data plan so there won’t be any pictures. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

If in February there be no rain, 'tis neither good for hay nor grain.


  1. Hmmmm wonder if something is keeping your fan on your laptop from kicking in? I know mine would act funky during very humid conditions. Hope it's better now.

    We are 3 days from our next batch of fresh data on our plan.. so we are skimping a bit and turning off the data each time we not actively doing something on the computer. I went on and clicked to open each blog I read so each is in a new window... then turn the data off while I read them. I turn it back on for the replies and shut it off again.

    I think we will make it without having to add an extra GB or two.
