Prior to leaving Hot Springs Park, we made a day trip to a small community in Arkansas that houses a classic car collection. Bob was in heaven for a few hours drooling over a 1956 Mercury Montclair . We own one also but sadly ours is not a convertible and not quite in the same pristine condition.
It was fun to see the full potential of his car as he is once again working on it little by little. Thank God for his determination ! (This picture was taken of his car at our local car show last summer)
We have been back home again for three weeks and if I had my way about things I have to admit that I would hit the road again in a New York minute. In as much as this was my first experience of being a snowbird, I didn’t expect the feelings of “let down” upon coming home. Wouldn’t one think that we would know ourselves inside out by this age? I think it is more a case of…OK, we came home, gathered with family, enjoy seeing everyone… they are all doing fine….now let’s go !
Much of the past six months has been quite warm here in the Northland and I assume the seasonal cold and flu germs thrived. Bob and I have managed to find a few lurking that knocked both of us off of our feet for the past week. Kim, Bob’s oldest daughter, came to the rescue and made a pot of chicken soup…what a gal ! Thanks toots, we are back on the mend.
My intention has been to continue blogging, taking the suggestion of other blogging friends with ramblings of local pictures and events. Just prior to catching our bugs, we took the camera out to do just that and headed out to the community of South Haven on Lake Michigan. I am afraid that Murphy was riding shotgun because suddenly the wind and rain picked up dampening the camera as well as the spirits.
Sherri and Randy, the couple we met as we left Hot Springs, have kept in touch and I really believe that Sherri and I have become one another’s lifeline. I feel such a relief and confidence knowing we will enjoy traveling in tandem next winter not only for Randy and Bob’s continued therapy but also the tremendous caregiver support we have to offer each other. It is such a gift !
Life truly is like a box of chocolates. Have a good day
