A Great Day!! Lets be Thankful for Family!

It was another great day here and warmed up pretty good. Rick worked again most of the morning on the satellite system. Jim loaned Rick his thing a magiggy and Rick was able to trace the problems. Thanks Jim!!!! We have our dish up and running-its wonderful to have good friends and neighbours.

We took a run into Sebring today, and to campers coral looking for tire covers-but no luck as the Mr. wants black not white and they didn't have any black. We are planning a trip into the Ft Myers area and I think there is a camping world in that area so we will pick them up then. We did some shopping on the way home-have to change the furkids food again :( which I do not like doing. We changed them before leaving home (they were on medi cal) as our Vet told us Royal Canin was available in the US-but not our brand of RC :( we got the closest we could get to with the "fish base" and will gradually change them over again. We stopped at walmart, picked up a few things and then went out for supper.

Upon our return home, I received the news that my dear Aunt Bev had passed away today-she was sick for the last couple of months, and while I'm thankful she has been called home, and her suffering is over-I will miss her dearly. She was much to young to leave us! She certainly provided our family with love, laughs and great memories. I talked to her via telephone just last week-while I cried she encouraged! Go enjoy your vacation I will be here for a few years yet-all the while knowing she wouldn't be. Heaven has added one colorful angel to their roster today for sure.

RIP Aunt Beverly-xoxo

Shortly after receiving the news Dee strolled down to visit, thanks Dee for stopping certainly helped to settle me down.

When I am sad, I just think of these two dear little ones and it puts a smile in my heart!

Other than that folks, that was our day. I'm definitely thankful for each and every day we have. Tomorrow we are looking forward to maybe lazing around in the morning-playing shuffleboard with Dee and Jim in the afternoon and playing cards tomorrow evening with some RV dreamers and Dee and Jim. Have a great evening and a super weekend! Stay safe out there everyone.

Oh and Larry thanks for the shout out and your right the coach looks much better sitting on grass versus snow!!

“Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay, some laugh with you, some at you, some didn't come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would stay and help clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the ones who didn't even make the mess: ) How true this is!!! “

  7. Sorry to read that you've lost your Aunt Bev. She sounded like a real trooper.

    I certainly appreciate the detailed description of how your satellite set up was resolved.
    Do you have a part number for that "thing a magiggy"? I'm using your spelling, 'cause I'm not really sure on that one.
    I have no I won't really be needing a...whatever it was.

    "Tech tips" for RVers, eh? Hm....
