It is now just a day till I leave on my trip to pick up my restored 1976 GMC Birchaven RV in Orlando. I keep myself busy so I don't overthink everything. Lucky has the right idea, just chill and relax, she certainly does not look worried at all does she? My 2 dogs are coming with me for this journey.
Well after waiting for over a year, it is now 4 days and counting till I leave for Orlando and pick up my restored RV. I realized this morning that I had packed warm clothes for myself, but had nothing for the dogs. Oops! I pulled out the sewing machine and in a few hours had whipped up 2 doggie coats. Pretty simple, and now that I have it figured out, watch out Martha Stewart!
Remember when we were kids and school was out for Christmas vacation? One week was just an intolerable time to wait until christmas came. It seemed like ages. Now a year can go by and we wonder where it went!
Today I am reminded of a wonderful friend. True bosom friends are one of the few jewels we seem give ourselves in life. They sparkle and have deep rich and vibrant colors that remain with you forever. Jim was such a friend.
It was the summer of 2010 and I was having an end of summer party at the house. Jim showed up as a friend of a friend. Jim was new in town, and soon he became the life of the party (in a good way) He was gregarious and before I knew it he had become the unofficial host of the party, helping everyone feel welcome. He had a southern accent, and was a true gentleman.
