My handy traveling companion (on the right, second picture) says we will have rain and a thunder-storm today–and tomorrow. I don’t want to hitch up in the rain (again) so got a head start. ~~ I spent the week with “the big guy” (in the corner of the living room) but he gave me “the silent treatment.” I don’t know what’s happening in the world!! (Well, I could check the Internet; I have WiFi.) If it weren’t for my handy traveling companions, I might not know the date, time, or weather!! The gadget with the white border says it is 76 degrees but “feels like 91.” It is hot and sultry so a rain shower will cool us off. (I have this lovely weather while friends in Vermont have 21 inches of snow!!) ~~ Question: Why have that TV antenna and not send a line to the TV in the guest apartment?? Enquiring [sic] minds want to know! But, to answer my question: I needed a quiet atmosphere so I could rest. I don’t rest at home: I have birds and squirrels to feed; I have “downsizing” projects begging my attention; I have a job. Soon I’ll be working in my garden. Never a dull moment!!

What a difference a week makes!! At this time last week, I had snow in my yard (in North Carolina). My indoor-outdoor thermometer says it is currently 73 degrees at 11:00 AM (heading for a high of 78 degrees). I’m near Ocala, Florida, and it is a bright sunny day. I’m staying in the garage apartment–as the guest of Jesse Saint and I-TEC. In a couple of days, I’ll head for a Good Sam “Samboree“ near Palatka, Florida.
I’m here to shout the message: “Praise God from Whom all blessings flow”!! I only publish this blog to proclaim my gratitude for protection from an accident that could have sent me to the hospital. I won’t list all the details; sufficient to say “I took a very bad fall into the tub / shower.” I have aches and pain but no broken bones. I’ll be OK!! Glory to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(The fall happened about 6:30 AM. Much later I decided to take the picture of the tub with curtain and rod exactly where they landed. ~~ While getting ready to go to bed [early] a little after 7:00 PM, I found the bruises. It is a challenge to take a picture into a mirror!! It took about a dozen “tries” to get this image.)
Sunday, Feb. 24th, 2013: Life is fickle!! An accident shortens the life of Christopher Reeve (Superman). An accident curtails the activities of Steve Saint (Christian ambassador and entrepreneur). Here I am (an old lady without fame or money) walking around with no obvious health problem. So I’ll use my voice, and the “power of the pen” (power of a blog on the Internet) to express my devotion and gratitude to God (my Heavenly Father). Saved by grace!!
I want this recreation vehicle!! This morning I visited the little town of Dunnellon, Florida. I “fell in love” with this RV the minute I saw it!! If the price of gasoline weren’t so high, I’d be driving it right now!! Well, the price of gasoline is a consideration but I’m a few dimes short of $54,000. I didn’t see the inside but know it must be luxurious from the description. Speaking of gasoline: I’ve spent over $200. since Monday!! I’m only 500 miles from my apartment. But I can dream can’t I??
I’ve never been a fan of Disney World, Disney Land, and similar amusement parks. I get a thrill visiting places like I-TEC near Dunnellon, Florida (near Ocala). I came to visit a friend and help him celebrate his 82nd birthday. (He’s a volunteer at I-TEC but we met at JAARS.) Second: I wanted to see “the flying car.” ~~ Pictures according to content, not by time-stamp.
