Feb 13, 2021 - Linda threw me under the bus

Here is what happened we had decided to wait on the Covid vaccination until later in the year maybe around flue shot time. They were giving shots at the Volusia County fairgrounds and Publix had started giving them at their stores Jan. 29th. So this is what changed everything. I heard Linda talking to Kathy(sister-in-law). Kathy had got her shot and she asked Linda when she would get hers. Her reply was I will get it when Donald tells me too. So when she got off the phone I told her she had threw me under the bus. I said now if you get...

Jan 27, 2021 - Still Kicking

We are still alive I imagine by now you had thought that we had contracted the virus and died. We are not getting out much I do the grocery shopping at Walmart on Tuesday morning around 6 am old folks time. I have found out I like shopping I come home with a lot of stuff most of it not good for you though. We still go to Texas Roadhouse every Friday and eat. If we didn't our waiter Micheal would think we were sick and also he is the best waiter ever. We still go out about every other week and eat sea food with Marie a 90 year old friend...

Dec 5, 2020 - Winter in Daytona Beach

Winter has hit Daytona a month early we are having our January temps in December. The normal Daytime is in mid 70's and lows at night mid 60's. This week we had 2 days of low 40's and hi's in the upper 50's. That's not much to complain about but right now I don't have anything else Thank the Lord. As I write they are still predicting lower than normal temps and it's also cloudy. The ocean temp is down to 72 degrees and that is to cold for me but not for some. With Canada being shutdown from the virus they are not making it down our building...

Nov 12, 2020 - Into November already

The old saying Time flies if your having fun. I've decided it flies no matter what your doing. I'm not to sure about people that are sick or going through difficulties in life. We thank the Lord everyday for watching over us and families. October was a good month lots of bike riding on the beach. The ocean temperature was 80 degrees just right for a cleansing and Linda had here pool time. SpaceX had 2 rocket launches in October and 1 in November they were all during daylight hours not very exciting. They have been launching satellites We...

Sep 29, 2020 - Time is flying by

Well where to start before we left Brandenburg we had lunch with friends in the park. We had rode the Surrey down and as we were leaving a young gentleman came over and asked about our ride. He was going to write and article about the river front for the Meade County paper. Anyway we ended up in the article with a little information about us and a picture it is a conversation starter. If you didn't know, we bought a Jeep Gladiator in June. So you know how kids are someone in Canada started ducking jeeps. It's called #duckduckjeep also...

Aug 12, 2020 - Back to Flordia

It was good to get back to the beach. Thankfully the storm that we waited out before we came back didn't amount to anything. I've been riding my bike in the morning. Down below the pier on the none driving part of the beach there are still 21 turtle nest marked off so the tides didn't even get high enough to wash them out. Which is good they have a hard enough time making it to adulthood. A lot of critters like the taste of them probably taste like chicken. I've been getting my cleansing in the ocean it's warm like bath water. It's just...

Jun 5, 2020 - Still Kicking in Florida

Almost 2 months since our last post. Everything Is getting back to normal. May 4th restaurants opened starting with 25% occupancy then on the 18th it went to 50% the hotels opened up the 23rd. I'm like a lot of people I don't understand how they determine which stores should be open and others closed if your doing safe distancing. I continued to bike ride up to 6 miles on a good day also picked up trash on the beach a few times. I don't understand why people throw cigarette butts down. Linda's been doing the pool exercise thing and...

Mar 18, 2020 - It's good to be home

I ended up getting a plane ticket for $53 and I would have paid whatever to get back down south. Everyone in Kentucky said they hadn't had a winter but I tell you it felt like winter to me. I was cold the whole time there and I had my winter clothes on how's that for a lot of whining. I flew out yesterday the 17th and the plane was empty. I got on last and I counted around 40 people. I had a window seat all to myself no one on my roll. My Uber guy showed up right when I hit the door almost. I believe Linda was even glad to see me. Today I...

Jan 22, 2020 - Winter in Daytona Beach Shores

We hope everyone that reads this is having a Blessed Year. January seems to be winter here the ocean is down to 63 degrees. The week of the 12th we had a low of 43 degrees but during the day it would be in the 60's and 70's and sunny. That's not bad if you live on the south side of the building because it blocks the wind coming out of the north. Yesterday was windy 20-30 MPH winds,today we are having gale force winds getting gusts up to 45 MPH. The temp is 52 with a wind chill in the 40's now that's cold. We have heat so it's not a problem...
