Miss Terry and I have been busy since we got to Florida and on the go every day. So we declared yesterday to be a stay-at-home day for us. One of those days where we don’t set foot outside of the RV and just enjoy being alone together. We need those every once in a while.
Of course, that doesn’t mean we were just sitting on our rear ends doing nothing. Well, I did spend a lot of time sitting on my rear end, but I had an excuse. I was busy writing and researching.
I wanted to get a head start on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and I cranked out two feature stories, updated our RV Calendar with a lot of rallies and events coming up in 2017, and formatted all the letters to the editor.
While I was busy with that, Terry was updating our mailing list and taking care of some bookkeeping duties as well as the laundry and cooking a delicious dinner for us. Yes, I know, I’m a very lucky man.
When we’re not having a quiet day like yesterday, one thing that Terry and I enjoy doing is visiting antique malls and things like that. As I’ve said before, it’s always interesting to see things that were common to us when we were youngsters that are now labeled antiques.
And you never know what you’re going to find. A few days ago we were browsing some stores in Deland and Terry spotted this Cousin It chair. Do you remember Cousin It from the old Adams Family television show? I thought we should buy it but Terry said it just doesn’t fit our decorating style. I told her maybe it would grow on us. What do you think?
It’s still pretty warm here in Port Orange, Florida, but the seasonal RVers are already rolling in. I thought we were the only ones foolish enough to come down here before things started to cool off. Silly me.
On a final note, the couple I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, whose daughter expects them to abandon their plans to go fulltime RVing so they can pay for her to get a PhD, e-mailed to say that they had read everyone’s comments and appreciate your input. They added that you all reaffirmed what they already knew in their hearts. I once had a psychiatrist friend who told me that the biggest part of his job was just listening to people talk, because deep down inside most of us know the answers to the questions in our minds, we just need to speak them out loud to hear what we already know.
Congratulations Robert Stone, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of my friend Ken Rossignol’s Pirate Trials: Famous Murderous Pirates Book Series: THE LIVES AND ADVENTURES of FAMOUS and SUNDRY PIRATES. We had 50 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.
Thought For The Day – Don’t cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.
