After several days of cloudy cool rains it was nice to wake up to clear sunny skies.  Pheebs & I didn't waste any time in getting ourselves into the Jeep & off down the road.  Had a coupon for an A&W breakfast so that's where we headed first.  Picked up some gas, some peanut butter, & we were off for a little ride in the countryside.  Nice morning with big white fluffy clouds.  It was another windows down with the heater on kind of day.  We found our way home by noon.
Added some water to the rig's fresh water tank & decided it was probably a good day to shut off our units outside water for the season.  With some new ROXUL insulation I re-insulated the main water pipe where it come’s out of the ground & enters our house.  Just another check mark on my long 'to do' list before we hit the road.  Seven months from now it will again be on my ‘to do’ list when I once more turn the red tap the other way to start our outside water flowing for the summer.
Talked to Aunt Jean in Sarasota Florida Sunday night & she has had to shorten up her morning walks a bit.  Had to sit out a few holes on the golf course as well last week but she is determined not to let her aging 87 years get her down.  Aunt Jean has always been an extraordinarily determined person.
Again tonight I am feeling tired & not too wordsy so think I'll call it an early night.  Maybe try spending a little more time with my Kindle……………………….
GROANER'S CORNER:((  Instructor: "Isn't it remarkable how quickly the kids learn to drive the car?" Parent: "Yes, especially considering how slowly they catch on to running the lawnmower and operating the vacuum cleaner."
A man is giving a speech at his lodge meeting. He gets a bit carried away and talks for two hours. Finally, he realizes what he is doing and says; "I'm sorry I talked so long. I left my watch at home."  A voice from the back of the room says, "There's a calendar behind you."


  1. Getting things done to soon hit the road, one day at a time.

  2. Just love your first picture tonight. I'm not feeling very wordy either so I'll just say I wish my dad were more like your Aunt Jean. He sits around and complains about what he can't do anymore.

  3. I love Aunt Jeans attitude! What a champ...
    I also love those country rides...beautiful pictures as always Al.
