It sure doesn’t seem that long ago I struggled over my sewing machine to make you a ruffled, long, feminine “prairie” dress you hated….but I guess it was about 25 years ago! A lot has happened in those years, hasn’t it? But the bottom line remains, your Dad and I love you very much, and wish you all the happiness you most certainly deserve! Happy Birthday, Dear Robin! May you have many, many more years to celebrate the most wonderful person you are.
Today we spent a lot of time watching over the weather. The forecasters promised us that muggy, humid, hot air would leave us and we’d have clear skies and cooler, drier air moving in. Yay, it finally arrived around mid-day. It was muggy and rainy when we got up this morning. I got Jasmine and Mr. BJ out between rain storms for a short walk. By the time Jim went off to the store and I spent some time with my Wii Fit, the rain stopped., but it was still cloudy and muggy.
Finally, the sky cleared and the sun prevailed! The dogs and I got a few more short walks done and I got my side of the closet cleared out. Funny thing, though, it doesn’t seem like the closet has fewer things in it, but I have a whole stack of stuff to go to the craft folks here, plus a few extra clothes I don’t need now. How does all that stuff manage to hide out!
Here’s another picture of a rose that Jim took at Fairhope. He sure has a way with that camera!:
Late this afternoon, we cleaned up our patio area and I sat outside for awhile. Jim was getting the charcoal grill ready to grill steaks when our new neighbors stopped by. We’d watched this afternoon as they got parked and then backed a small car out of their “garage” attached to a big truck that pulls their Teton 5th wheel. We were surprised to find out they have our same last name – Meacham! We don’t meet many other Meacham’s, wonder if we’re related? They are new to the fulltime life, welcome, Jay and Vickie! They’ve met our friends Mike and Pat Mcfall and Rollie & Gina, as well as Jack and Danielle Mayer. Small world, this RV community, isn’t it?
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been messing with the layout and template design of my blog. Thanks, Penny, for your comment about the small text size on the gray background. I’m working on that, and hopefully you’ll have an easier time reading it now. I sure don’t mind comments about the layout - especially if it’s meant to help me make the blog better and easier for you to read! I appreciate all your comments, and hope that you all continue to follow our adventures!
Of course, not every day is filled with new adventures, some days we get off to a slow start and never seem to gain much momentum, but every day is precious, and we are happy to share our blessings with you.
We wish you safe travels, blue skies and happy adventures!
