More Concrete, Please, Sir!!

Well, this past Wednesday morning....at 4am again....they came in and poured the West side of the road, the curve around back. I can see a light at the end of the tunnel as far as them getting the complete roadway paved. Because once they get it done, I will be able to drive all the way around the site and not worry about MUD!!!!!

I'm getting my "Tiny House" set up a little more each week, too!  Still throwing stuff out and figuring out the storage, but it is getting there. I almost feel like I have really gotten settled into my new "life"!  And you know what????.....I'm learning to enjoy it more every day!!  :-)

There's not really much else to add.....OH.....except that I went and bought several new pairs of shoes yesterday. My right foot has gone from a 10 1/2 to a 12-14 shoe size! Brother! My ankle seems to have settled for the time being in the shape that it is in and it looks like that if I am back to 80% of normal by this time next year I will be very happy!  It is just amazing how long it takes me to heal nowadays!!  LOL

Have a great week, folks. And I will keep trying to update a little more often!!  :-)

Just a quick thought......

I just watched a couple of commercials for autos..... and folks are so concerned about cell phone usage & texting while driving. ........

Well have you noticed just what the car makers are pushing??

Ford was just the page that loaded fastest so i screen shot their page.

A weekend of football!

It has been a nice peaceful weekend! No rain, but that means no mud and so no mess! I spent the day cleaning house and watching football! Just a normal weekend for me!  And the weather here was almost like fall! It got down to the 50`s the past couple of nights. Of course this coming week it is hear back up to the low 90`s! Bah-humbug!

If all goes well I'll be in touch with some guys (a father & son that that do RV work on location. I'm going to see about having them do my repairs/upgrades to Bertha. It is going to be awhile before I'm able to get up & down to the ground to do a lot of the work myself. So I'm hoping they do good work & don't cost an arm & a leg!

There's really not much else to add right now. That is how quiet it has been this week, so I'll close this post & maybe I'll have more to add layette this week.

I'll close with a picture Christopher sent me! It is really pretty up in"snow country"!  Can't wait to hear how he likes it in January!  Heheheh.

A Quiet Week





Well, besides the couple of posts that I did last night about a couple of news articles I forwarded to here, it has been my usual 10 days or so since my last post....I guess that when I am stationary like this, that is going to be my more or less norm!!  :-)


The main "excitement" that has happened around here for the past week or so was the thunderstorms that passed by here a couple of nights ago! And when I say passed by, that is exactly what happened!
The storm front stayed to the east and south of main town, but the lightening was absolutely fabulous! I never even heard any thunder, but the light show went on for over 2 hours!


It was just so pretty, and it lit up the clouds in a way that I have not seen in many years! It was the most 3-D lightening show that I can remember 
seeing.




It was almost like someone had choreographed (sp?) it in advance and had laid out the patterns and directions that it would go.
 And today was my splurge day for this period....SONIC!!!  And they have banana splits!!! I have not had a banana split in a LONG time....so that was my splurge for the week!! And, boy, was it a tasty, smooth, cool, sweet splurge!! I just might have to do it again sometime!!  Heheheheh!


 

 Well, it looks like I will be here through at least February, and possibly into or through March. They are just now getting power close to getting turned on for the buildings, and that was supposed to have been done in June, so you can see that they are just a little tiny bit behind on the schedule.  But when I do get released from here, I am going to take 6-8 weeks off and make the circuit and see everybody.


As you can tell from the map above, making a circuit for me to see everybody is going to be a major roadtrip.....aawwwwwww!!!  LOL   It is about 3500 miles, and will take at least 8 days of drive time for me in Bertha, it might be more like 10-11 days of drive time. But I will stay true to me and not run the interstates any more!!!  I refuse to be in that much of a rush for anything unless it is deemed to be of life or death!  So, if you take the drive time and add 3-5 days at each stop, that comes up to about 32-37 day road trip...and I am looking forward to it. And hopefully the worst of the winter will be done and gone by then!

It is about time to get ready for the night....so I will end this by saying I hope all are doing well, and I will be posting again....sooner than later, hopefully!!  :)
