Welcome to Mike and Pat!  They have been full timing for sixteen years!  I wish I had thought about it sixteen years ago!  

Fellow Hoosiers, Don and Gayle have also joined our journey down the road.  So glad to have you on board.  Hopefully we will be able to meet everyone that follows.  

This was posted on Facebook.  I am not a huge fan of Facebook, but occasionally, something comes to my computer that is worth sharing.  

We all are having one kind of struggle or another.  Some are minor irritants and some are huge, life threatening.  This put things in perspective for me.

Take a close look at this photo from National Geographic.  Really look at it.
LOOK at the camels first and then read the message below.

This is a picture taken from directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year. When you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture.
The black images you see are just the shadows!

Sometimes, our "problems" seem to be as big as the shadows...but they are little. Have a lovely day!

You know, I cannot "get" this picture, but I do get the message.  

Tomorrow is the  "S" day for me.  The thumb surgery.  I'm ready.  John is fixing tomorrow's breakfast for dinner tonight since I cannot eat until after I get home.  

Every time I felt an "ouchie" today, I would think ..... hehehe .... you'll be gone tomorrow!  Not the thumb but the "ouchie".

I sewed grass seed today, groomed Oliver and did some housework. It sure takes longer to clean the house than to clean the motorhome.  Another reason to full time!  

Tomorrow, Oliver goes to the real groomer for the works.  I was just working on him to get some tangles out.  He'd rather I did the pulling than the groomer.  

This time of year, he picks up leaves, grass, seeds etc and then his coat tangles.  I know it would be easier to have him in a puppy cut, but we like him in full coat.  The full coat takes more work, but it is also prettier.  Here he is with Noah, our cat.  Looks like we like long hair doesn't it.  

These guys love to ride on the dashboard of the motorhome, especially at night.  I think Noah comes up to tell us it's time to stop driving and to go to bed.  He has an inner clock that works no matter where we are.  

Have you noticed that Noah is larger than Oliver?  That cat weighs twenty pounds and Oliver weighs in at a whopping eight, but looks much larger with his long hair. 

I was looking at the selling prices that houses in our area.  We are fortunate to live in an area that houses are still selling.  I just hope it continues until we sell our home. 

Ok, dinner is over.  I am heading to bed.  Hopefully, I will post tomorrow night.  

Have a great day tomorrow and stay safe!


  1. That camel picture is incredible. I can actually see a couple of the live camels. Wow. Good luck tomorrow. It will be so wonderful to be pain free again. Hope you can let us know how it goes.

  2. I read this Tuesday night....I hope all went well this morning and that you are home and recovering nicely. Hope to see a post from you soon! Take care and get well soon!


Thank you for leaving your comment. We do enjoy hearing from you.
