We were out and about yesterday, trying to get our prescriptions filled, getting supplies, etc. It was kind of a day off, but didn’t get to do anything that was really fun. Today, I am not going to wonder about anything. I am just going to answer the comments that were left on my yesterday’s blog, since I didn’t get around to doing it yesterday.
Yes! There are advantages to getting old, I just can't remember them at the moment. DD, it sounds like you might have to make a break for it. Toss the wife and dogs into that motorhome and put the hammer down! Be careful getting out of the driveway, then hammer down.
Yes, Jimkabob, there are advantages to getting old, but right now work is getting in the way of all of them. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Hope to be done within a week. (I think I said that before about a week ago) I sure would like to take your advice and hit the road, but I still have some things I want to get done on the RV. Maybe a short trip and then get the stuff done. The main thing is the window on the driver’s side will not go down. Rain water must have gotten past the rubber seal and shorted out the window motor. I have no idea how to get to it. No way from the outside, and I don’t see any removable panel on the inside. Must be a secret door somewhere.

Good boy!!! Take a day off and begin to get your new wheeled home set up for a ROAD TRIP!!! :-)
BTW,glad you learned the NO word.. BUT gotta be careful tying it on the wife :-)
Yes Ben, I will try to use that new word a little more, except on the wife (grin). I have been charging the same rate since the end of 2007, maybe it is time to raise my rates. That may help give me more free time.
Gypsy said... I think there is a fine line between too much and too little work for a retired person. When I have a project to do I feel much more alive than when I sit around looking at a computer or TV screen. The type of work you do is also sure to keep your brain cells in top shape. So I would say you are really lucky you can take a job now and then (or refuse it when you need to).
My problem is that when I am working, I am sitting all day and usually all evening in front of a computer. That is not healthy for me. When I am not working, I am out side, or traveling, or repairing things. I am in much better health when I am not “working”.
Hey, i wanna hear about the doc's visit. A-OK?
It being still winter, get all ur ducks in a row, hit the road soon. Spring time coming!
Don’t have all the results back from my blood test yet, but so far he has changed my BP meds. The new ones cost me about $70.00 verses the old ones at $4.00. That was not an expected thing. And yes, I want to hit the road. I still haven’t had time to switch things out of the old motor-home into the new one.
I hope you take more time for your retirement,now while you can enjoy some lazy days. Take to the road,and see some of the world thru your windshield...have fun !!! Blessings Jane
Jane, I have no argument with what you said. It is just easier said than done. Need to take a shake-down cruse soon. Doesn’t need to be far, just some place where I can hook up and spend a night or two.
New experiences, especially way outside my comfort zone, give me vivid and crazy dreams. Now if I could only get some more sleep to have them.
Sixbears, maybe that is the way your brain tries to adapt to things and places outside of your comfort zone. I have heard that dreams are the brain’s way of defragging itself and getting all the information in order. If that is the case, I need to sleep and dream a lot more (grin). Hope you have a wonderful time in Florida. Live your dream.
OK, got to get ready to head down to the flea market and then I will get back to work. You all have a great Saturday, you hear?
