I’m going to keep it short today – I’m trying to get our taxes done which is somewhat worse than having a tooth pulled. I received a box today at the activity center of bills, tax forms and other work related to-do items. There wasn’t even a candy bar – what a let down.
So I thought I would share some snapshots that I took yesterday, walking around the campground. It’s fun to see how some campers personalize their site with signs and doodads for lack of a better term. I’m fascinated on my walk every morning by the endless array of motorhome and trailers, from antique GMC coaches beautifully restored, to tiny 16 feet trailers parked next to massive motorhomes costing several hundred thousand dollars.
Most everyone has a satellite rig of some sort and some folks are loaded for bear with multiple roof antennas. I’m not a big TV watcher but I have to admit that after reading the news on my iPad, catching up with Facebook and Twitter, being burned out with work and relaxing in the leather recliner that I never owned until now, there is something very appealing about an hour of shows before bed with a glass of wine or cup of tea.
I’ve been getting a kick out watching some of my old favorites on Me-TV like Mash, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart shows. Tonight I think I’ll catch an episode of The Twilight Zone. It’s fun to see some of the featured actors before they became famous – Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, Robert Duvall, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, William Shatner.
I’m feeling the heavy weight of this amazing winter season coming to an end. We’re going to have to head north to monetize our travels. But, I’m excited about some upcoming trips. We’ll probably take a week to get back, visiting some spots on the way. And we have a trip planned to upstate NY to see our daughter Nina followed by a trip to the Smokey Mountains for a family reunion at The Twinbrook Resort in Maggie Valley North Carolina. More fun to come and i’t going to be exciting.
