I'm with you on that last point; I just hate crying 'cause my head gets all clogged up and it takes forever to clear it up.

Maybe we'll watch the movie at home sometime on DVD. (Is it out yet?) That way I can blow my nose as much as I want and not worry about disturbing others! On the other hand, usually the book is better than the movie. Maybe I'll read the book first and then watch the movie.

I worked with people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia for 14 years. I loved it. Loved taking them to a happy place in their minds through long ago memories (talked with spouses and families all the time to find those out) or playing songs from the 30s, 40s or 50s for them. Alzheimer's (or dementia of any kind) is the cruelest disease there is.

You are correct sir! Still feeling worn down. The fact that it's 38 degrees doesn't help much either. We like sitting around Bonita watching TV or whatever when it's a choice. When there is no choice it's a little irritating. Should be another beach run Thursday. And then it nears time to organize for departure.

Hey Steve , hate to hear that your under the weather, 4 months at the same place can make you cranky but soon buddy you will get your wheels rolling, we will send ohmmmmmsssss your way.

To the rest if you there is a story to the saying " feeling under the weather " do you know what it is ?
Ponder amongst yourselves..

Cheers !!!!

Thanks Jeff. We rolled in Dec 1st... don't make it longer than it is... lol. We plan to pull out the 18th. A little over 3.5 months. If the weather would have been "normal" it would have been nice. But it's been like last year according to the locals - which to me is the new normal. Not a rvers mecca. Even the northern winter Texans here are grousing.

IMHO, Steve, Howard (as in "Howard be thy name) blessed you with the dark side of F/T to start your Journey on the Rainbow. After what you and Sweet Annie have been thru, the rest is easy street!
But you had mini-Cs and such! Woot! Silver linings, Bro.
The Twilight Zone wishes it could be so nifty.

Dave we're all John Deere here, the oldest of three on the place. They never wear out! This was Grampa's.
Confession, this is a stock photo, too cold to go get an actual pic. Just imagine same tractor, more patina!

Truth is Dave - I am certain this isn't the dark side of full time. It's just not great weather. It is much colder back at the ranch. I'm just not using that as the benchmark for acceptable weather. We left there because it wasn't acceptable. We are very happy to be on the rainbow. We aren't expecting great weather every day. This has been a good experience for us as we aren't vacationing - we're living on the rainbow. And that's as good as it gets!!
