I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, my writing activities, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally.
Q. I know your new place is keeping you busy, but don’t you miss kayaking and fishing and the beach in Florida?
A. We do miss being on the water, but everything in life is a trade off. There are more things we don’t miss about living in Florida than things we miss.
Q. At one time you mentioned building a backstop for target shooting on your property. Did you ever do that? I am interested in seeing what you came up with.
A. It’s been too darned hot to start that project yet, but I will write about it when I do.
Q. Like you and Miss Terry, we hung up the keys this year and settled into a townhouse near our kids in Virginia. We used Verizon when on the road because it seems to have the best footprint, but now we are trying to cut costs. Did you switch to T-Mobile or something and are you happy with it?
A. We dropped Verizon when we got off the road and switched to Consumer Cellular for our telephones. We have two phones with unlimited data for $100 a month and the service has been excellent everywhere we have been. Here at the house, we have a T-Mobile hotspot at $55 a month for unlimited internet and it has worked very well.
Q. The hurricane season seems to be off to a slow start this year. Is that because you moved out of Florida? Will Alabama see a worse tornado season?
A. Given the way Mother Nature messes with me, like dumping a year’s supply of rain on Yuma, Arizona in one morning while we were parking RVs for one of our Gypsy Journal rallies, I would not be surprised.
Q. I have seen pictures of Terry on the riding lawnmower, but not on the tractor yet. I know she drove that big old bus conversion and your motorhome so I know she can do it. Are you being selfish and keeping that toy for yourself?
A. There is no doubt Terry can drive the tractor and she is welcome to any time she wants. She just hasn’t gotten around to it yet. I suspect that once she does, I will be the one on the lawnmower. 😊
Q. Am I the only one that missed “Barn Project 2” for the 3rd of August?
A. No, there hasn’t been a Part 2 yet. It has to cool down more before I tackle that.
Q. Your blog has gotten boring these days. I miss the travel stories and could care less about your dog and cats and mowing the grass. Why do you keep writing it?
A. I am sorry you feel that way, but this is our life these days. I keep writing the blog because I enjoy it and because enough readers seem to want to read it. But we don’t take attendance and you are free to leave at any time.
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.
Thought For The Day – Don’t keep things that might be useful someday. They are useful now to someone else.
