If all goes well–when you read this–I’ll be en route to the cruise ship–or on-board. I anticipate a week of fun!! I’m leaving the laptop computer at home. I’m considering leaving the two cell phones behind!! I’m due for a change of scenery, and a change of pace.
Stanley was a BIG help today as we vacuumed my 2003 Carriage 5th-wheel trailer home. Yours truly also mopped and dusted. I’m able to leave with a clear conscience. My trailer–and my patio–have been cluttered the entire duration of my residency. Several days ago, I organized the patio and the small storage building. I’ve been embarrassed to invite guests into my home. I’m making a “November resolution”: Keep things tidy!!
Oh joy!! This morning, I saw a Bluebird for the first time in months. It flew by the area where a feeder formerly hung. I was so excited, I quickly went to the storage shed for the feeder–and dried mealworms. I hung them… and watched (off and on) all day. I was rewarded–at 3:08–with this picture. My perfect “going away” present. I love Bluebirds!!

Giving THANKS for my many blessings!! Primary: My good health. I live in a community with individuals suffering many issues. How can one be indifferent, or complacent, when (with reasonably good vision) I see my blind neighbor with her seeing-eye dog? My next-door neighbors come-and-go with electric wheelchairs.
I complained about the heat and humidity during the Summer but our Texas Fall and Winter weather is preferable to deep snow, and flooding (like current conditions in Buffalo, New York). Miserable weather in many states!!
Abandoned by my biological family, I’m grateful for the extended family at CARE. ~~ Yes, it required roof repairs but I’m thankful for the 2003 Carriage 5th-wheel trailer. ~~ My old KIA continues to provide reliable transportation. ~~ A thoughtful, considerate, conscientious young man (short-term visitor/volunteer) spent hours establishing my television reception. ~~ The list goes on-and-on: A lady-friend, in Florida, faithfully exchanges email messages. ~~ Time and space preclude full documentation.
