Will We Get Lucky?

Are you going to watch the Presidential Inauguration today? We sure plan to. With all of the craziness that has gone on in our country, I don’t think I will breathe a complete sigh of relief until it’s over. A friend told me yesterday that she thinks the whole world will breathe a sigh of relief that it might change the flow of the tides. And even after today’s events are over, I know it will be a long time before our nation begins to heal again.

Registration opens this morning at 9 a.m. for vaccines for those of us age 65 and over here in Volusia County, Florida. They have 3,600 doses of the Moderna vaccine available and almost 165,000 people in our age group here, so if we get lucky it will be kind of like winning the lottery. Wish us well.

I spent yesterday doing what I have been doing, working on my new book, proofing and making corrections to the last few chapters I wrote, and printing them out for Terry to proofread. It’s getting close, I am at about the 75% mark, give or take. I’m looking forward to getting it finished and seeing how everything will work out in the story.

While I was doing that, Terry was busy with a lot of chores around the house; laundry, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, and the million and one of the things she does to keep our home functioning.

Then she made two delicious homemade pizzas for dinner, a pepperoni for me.

And hers had pepperoni, onions, and sliced olives. Of course, they were delicious, what else would you expect?

It’s supposed to be in the mid to upper 70s for the next two or three days, and come hell or high water, I’m going to get my boat out and do something with it. That’s assuming the wind cooperates. If not, I may put up a mast and sail and make it the only Bennington pontoon boat with a sail in the state of Florida. We’ll see what happens

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. This one from Zephyrhills, Florida, was sent to me by my friend Mac McClellan. It’s always nice to find a place where the whole family can shop, isn’t it?

 Thought For The Day – When you get to be our age, sex is like boating. It takes planning, the conditions need to be right, and everyone has to pee before getting started.

  1. Just watched the Inauguration and it looks good with a theme of Unity by all the speakers.
    Both pizzas look delicious.
    Hope you get the boat out without the Sail. .Don’t forget to pee. Lol!
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.
