Nov 1, 2019 - Just some pictures

That was the 2nd bicycle the building manager has given me. Someone stole the first one it was an old Disney bike. I was pretty sure someone would take it. It was too nice for me I don’t have to worry about this one. There has been a lot of big cruisers heading south on the (Halifax River)intercoastal waterway for the winter. We have done a few things went out to the big flea market. It goes on Friday thru Sunday and the 1st Saturday of the month they have a car show. Daytona Beach Shores had a Oktoberfest with music and a German meal....

Oct 30, 2019 - I'm Back

It's been awhile since I have updated the trip journal. I thought about quitting but there are several people that still follow us. For 7 years in our travels we handed out cards with the trip journal information on it. We don't know who reads it but we still have lots of followers. We pray that everyone that reads it are having a blessed life. Our lives seem pretty dull anymore but I'm not complaining. Most days consist of a bicycle ride down to the pier to talk to the fisherman or other people I have gotten to know walking the beach or...

Sep 24, 2019 - Back in Florida

We flew back Sunday the 22nd and it was a good flight with a good Uber driver hauling us home. We also had a good driver on the Kentucky end Tammy. Her and Cassidy picked us up Saturday evening and we spent the night with them. Then hauled us to the airport for a 10am flight we were home before 1pm. Time is flying by once again now that we’re here It’s Crazy. Went down to the farm to see how the timber is doing. Looks like some of it is ready to cut. I still do the same thing when I'm in the woods. Looking or hunting as soon as I see a...

Jul 24, 2019 - Meade County World's Fair

We have received several texts from friends in Kentucky that haven't seen us at the fair. Everyone is wanting to know if we are alright. Linda and I have attended the fair for 39 years and a lot of years we went every night. We always enjoyed seeing people that we haven't seen for a year. It is a event that we really enjoy and like I tell everyone if you miss this one it will be another year tell the next one. But we decided that the cancer on Linda's nose needed attention now and to not put it off tell after the fair. A good friend...

Jul 15, 2019 - Florida

Well we have been back in Florida for a month living like beach bums. Most days are made up of setting up cabana on the beach,floating in the ocean or reading a book. It is a tough life but someone has to do it. I do try to ride the bicycle down to the pier (Crabby Joe's) and back most days it's a 3 miles round trip. I have got to know a few people that are out walking,fishing or just setting that I stop and talk to. They definitely know how to do July 4th here. People were shooting fireworks on the beach and all over the Daytona Beach...

Jun 14, 2019 - Back in Florida

Our return flight turned into a late night. We were scheduled to leave Louisville at 8:43 pm Thursday night. But bad weather had made our plane late to Louisville so 1 1/2 hours later it arrived we got back to Condo around 2 am. That's just the way the ball bounces. Our Uber driver was pleasant and talkative and we only ran over one possum. It wasn't his fault he tried to miss him we thought we might have a wreck. I told him we don't swerve to miss anything we just run over it. We were in Kentucky 26 days

May 1, 2019 - Still loving it

Well we are still in Florida for now most of the snowbirds are gone. The weather has been great it is like South Texas the wind blows just about everyday just not quit as strong. They say here that Daytona is a destination for families the ocean and sunshine is all a lot of people come for don't let me forget the seafood to. Last week was Jeep Week there were several here but nothing like last year. Next to us we only saw one traffic jam to get on the beach and no police directing traffic. We went and watched the weigh in at Ponce Inlet...

Apr 12, 2019 - Rocket Launch

We went down and watched Space X's Falcon Heavy rocket launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center this was it's second flight. It's a new design it has 3 cores that stand side by side to create a 27-engine colossus. Together it creates 5.1 million pounds of thrust it's the most powerful rocket in the world 2 of the side boosters came back and landed at the Space center and the 3rd one landed on a barge in the ocean. When the 2 side rockets came down it created 2 sonic booms. I will have to say I thought the rocket launch would have made a lot...

Apr 7, 2019 - Spring Break

Tammy and Cassidy came down for Spring Break last week. The weather was OK but this week would have been a whole lot better. I talked to Bob this week I've been riding my bicycle down to the Sun Glow Pier it's a 3 mile round trip. Last year I was walking it until my hip started bothering me. So I shortened my walk and then stopped completely. The building manager gave me another bicycle nobody wanted someone stole my last one she gave me. It was a old Mickey Mouse bike which was probably worth some money. I don't think I will have to worry...

Mar 16, 2019 - Back to Daytona

It's great to be back to Daytona Beach Shores. It is way to busy for us down there around Miami. A lot of road construction and a lot of traffic. Daytona is just the right size for us. My old phone would load the pictures right on the computer the new phone won't. The new phone and our blog are still not getting along. When I rotate a picture it turns into a little square in the corner and then it will not open. I've tried with the phone and with the computer and nothing works. Looks like there will be a lot less pictures. Maybe it's time...

Mar 10, 2019 - 78th Anniversary of Bike week Daytona

It's hard to believe the number of bikers in Daytona Beach. Bikes and trailers with bikes started coming in on the 6th of March it started on the 8th. On Sunday the 10th they were still coming in. I had taken pictures but we have gotten new phones last week and there so smart they won't load them on my old computer. We went riding in the car to check out the action on Saturday. On Main street in Daytona Beach traffic was backed up for a mile or so. Being we are locals we took a different route. Then we road out to the Speedway and guess...
