 7:24 am - Saturday - November 5th - GNHS - 50° F, 46% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the southeast, with a forecast high of 75°F.  The view this morning.....↴

......and on this date in 2013 we were courtesy parked in front of my brother's home in South Jordan, UT....we awoke to snow on our 2002 T-Bird.....↴

Friday we helped Bob and Casey put the finishing touches on the office setup, I continued installing the tablet holders in the RAZR's, plus setting up our wash station.  I was so busy I neglected to remember to take any pictures Friday, except for the beautiful sunrise, and then in the evening our beautiful sunset.....



....we only ended up working about 4 hours Friday as Bob and Casey needed to drive into Niland to sign up for fuel delivery with a local supplier, plus do some shopping for the business, so we had the afternoon off work.

Personally, I took a nap, and did some reading. Around 5 pm TLE whipped up another of her tasty BLAT's (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato)......I love bacon Friday's!  After that we headed outside to play a game of 'Phase 10', then finished off the evening with a fire, and great conversation.  We got a call from Charles and Phyllis (TLE's sister and brother-in-law), who are still going strong in their renewed relationship. Every time we talk with them you sense a lightness in their conversation, and happiness.  Of course, that makes TLE very happy for her sister.  Apparently a cold snap moved through the Phoenix area, so they hooked up the 5th wheel and headed for Long Beach, CA.  Phyllis just retired as a flight attendant for American Airlines, and is now adjusting to life not revolving around  I explained to her that everyday is now 'Saturday'.  For those of you who have not heard my theory on retirement and Saturdays let me explain.

Back in my workaday life I would occasionally awake on a Saturday morning thinking it was a regular work day, and then within seconds realized it was Saturday.  That feeling of suddenly realizing you don't have to go to work was so special back just relax, turn over, and go back to sleep.....that was always a great feeling!  Fast forward to my retirement....suddenly waking up every day felt like Saturday, so I renamed the workdays of each week to First Saturday (Monday), Second Saturday (Tuesday), and so forth.  When you are retired you never go to Home Depot, or the grocery store on Real Saturday, but wait until 2nd, or 3rd Saturday when all the workaday people are back at their jobs, so its not as crowded.

Anyway, we had a delightful time talking with them, and it just kind of capped off a great evening on the 'lido deck'.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Who's doing the job you went there to do?

    1. They brought in a single guy to take our place, and at this point in not sure how that is working out.
