Veteran's Day 2011

I'm hanging with my Vet today! He got up early and walked the bridge with our daughter. Then.....bless his heart....he came home and fixed brunch for us. Now, we are sitting here playing on the computers and listening to the road shakers at work. I am sure they will shake my home off its foundation!! We've lived in the same place for 36 years and they finally decided to surprise us with a "new road". When we got home from the last rv'ing trip we had a dirt road in place of the asphalt one we had when we left home. SURPRISE!! Just what I needed to see as a welcome home gift. I should be grateful but after so many years, why did they wait so long???.... Oh, wait!! I know why!! They ran out of road work to do in south Brevard County so ...FINALLY.... We poor North Brevardians are on the receiving end of this great road work. Can you tell I am excited? Oh well, when you retire life, throws you many surprises that you can do without....LOL...
Time to go take my Vet for a ride. Lots of places are giving away free lunches to the Vets and I want to make sure he gets his just desserts! Gotta love him...he is mine!

A time to reflect on things

We made it back home and as usual I got busy and didn't do the blog. I had such a hard time with a wifi connection in the campgrounds that I couldn't even write on the blog most days. Disappointing for me cause its nice to go back and remember the little things you forget. I'm not much of a writer it seems. I do better when writing fiction stories than real life stories. I need to expand and re-do my fiction site. Maybe write some more stories for kids.
I want to take a moment and tell you about how much God has given me in life. I have 2 great kids but you all knew that because I say it often. My husband tho..... I can never say enough good things about him. He is my life and my love. He has been and continues to be the best friend I ever had.... just took me a little longer to understand that fact than it takes most people. I can be slow but that is because I am a Scorpio and they are stubborn people. My Mother called me this morning talking about him. She calls him her angel. She says she thought Rick could do anything and she has ask him to do just about everything! Someone knocked down her mailbox. We went Sunday to get a new post and new mailbox for her. He installed it this morning and she is just thrilled. It takes so little to excite an 87 yr old lady sometimes! She says she is going to make him a cake. He will be pleased cause he likes to eat. He fits in our family real good. A family friend told my sister once that our family was the only one he knew that made eating a sport! That happens when you have great cooks in the family.
My love just came in and told me what our plans were for today. He has us a trip scheduled and he wants me to go with him. Gotta love a man that looks out for your well being. He said we'd go after we have some lunch! Whatta sport!
