Day 48

Last night I got a little sick but A OK this morning.  The cat continues to be sick in the morning.  NO we are not suffering from the same thing even though it appears the same.  The vet isn’t open till Monday.  I guess we are staying a little longer to find out what’s wrong with the cat not me.

Tried to clean the portable gas grill at the car wash.  That don’t work.  Had grease on one side of the Jeep.  Anyhow, I threw the grill in the dumpster and washed the Jeep.  Nope the grease didn’t come off the Jeep.  That means had wash the Jeep tomorrow, maybe.

Not much happened during the day.  We got a pop up with several kids on one side of us.  The other side is a tenter that is only there to sleep.  He stays out very late.  You know like a youngin.

Retirement is getting old……er.

Day 47

We’re moving down South to the Kirkland AFB.  Mark is only going about 20 miles and going to boone.

We have about 140 miles to go there.  Pictures are plentiful.DSC_0002DSC_0003DSC_0004DSC_0006DSC_0009DSC_0010DSC_0014DSC_0015DSC_0016DSC_0018DSC_0019

We arrived around noon to Kirkland AFB.  We got a FHU (much needed) for $18.  Two nights here.DSC_0020

They have WiFi here so we lost Kraig.  Carol did the laundry and I slept.

Later Carol fixed us diner then we watched some local TV on the antennae.

Retirement is having no required schedule by others.

Day 46

It was a light rain when I got up.  I turned on the heater and some lights about 7:30 AM. 

Of course I got the dry heaves again (short).  I guess it’s ????  We all can’t figure it out.  Old body can’t take this kind of living I guess.

Retirement is unknown diseases become known.

Day 45

Up, down and sideways.  We actually thought about Branson.  I did a schedule of the route and everything. 

Mark, Carol, Kraig and I took the Jeep into Taos for lunch and sight see.  We didn’t know which restaurant to choose.  So the place with the most vehicles in the parking lot won.  It turned out these restaurant people once had a real good food truck and now have a restaurant.  It was pretty dog on good but don't ask us the name of it.

We went to Walmart and then Albertsons and back to our camper site in the mountains which is about 30 miles away.

We got back and rested (nap).  That evening we all played Sorry outside and even in the dark.  We had a LED hat light and we played some more.  Then a pick up truck joined the outskirts of our camping area.  Oh well, they were quiet and we were the noisy ones but not from drinking, just fun and laughing.

While we played the ending of the last game the wind kicked up and it started to drizzle hard.  We put everything away and we were in bed by 8:30 PM. 

Oh yea, we decided to aim for Texas and not Branson but not in a hurry.  Too hot and humid, plus rain for a projected week forecasted for Livingston.

All is quiet except for the constant light rain all night long.

Retirement is not doing anything sometimes.

Day 44

Up and then going and eating breakfast here…  It was good and highly recommend it for any meal.  Tres Piedras is a very small community.   The community is so old, run down and so small that we went thru here and didn’t see this large building.  Stop for a meal and wow was it good.


Kraig was real excited waiting a long time for the food.DSC_0004

Across the street has come and gone.DSC_0005

Back at the camper Kraig needed a nap.DSC_0006

Here Mark just finished temporary fixing the cat tent with some bailing wire and a Dremel.DSC_0008

After Kraig fixed us some tacos we played the game Sorry outside at dark.   The four of us had some laughs and even said Sorry with a smile.

All is quiet and Sorry.

Retirement is not saying sorry.

It took over 15 minutes to send Day 42 blog out over the internet. Oh well, it went, I saw it afterwards to make sure. Blah, blah, blah.

Retirement is doing what others want.
