Our Home Is... sold.

... for sale.  Today's date: 12-3-2017.
Once again Kathy and I have decided to make a change in our life style.  Our home in Jacksonville is too big for us ( 4 BR and 2 bath) and as we get older, we find it gets more difficult to maintain the home.  So we're downsizing to an apartment to be able to live a more "lock & go lifestyle."   Now we will be able to "hit the road" whenever we want to and won't worry about hurricanes blowing our roof off, is the grass getting mowed, etc.  A relief.  So let the new chapter in our lives begin!  Here's some pictures of the last house we'll ever own.

Up date: Offer received on 12-12-17.  To close on or before 1-31-2018.
We closed on 1-31-20178

Halloween 2017 at PVC

I "borrowed" these pictures from some folks who were actually AT this event at PVC - so thank you!
Unfortunately we had to return home before the annual "progressive Halloween parade" took place this year.  I just wanted to show how much these great people get into the mood!  We missed a good party!  Anyway, here are some pics:

Bedroom in Trailer is done.

We've been working hard to convert the trailer we have into a bedroom that will hold a king size bed.  I made some repairs on the sub-floor, installed new carpet, painted int interior and now we just finished putting out new bed in.  We love it!

Before Renovation - queen bed shown.

New king size bed and dresser bought at a 2nd hand store.
Scroll down to  May 19 post to see more cabin pictures.

Hurricane Irma Pics

Well, Irma has come and gone.  It did some damage to a lot of trees in the campground where we are, but no one was hurt.  We lost power for about 13 hours, but the people across the creek are still without power after 7 days.  Here are a couple of pictures to get the idea.

Hurricane Irma is Coming

Date: 9-7-2017.
Oh boy.  Hurricane Irma, the strongest hurricane to hit the US in recorded history is passing over Puerto Rico as I type this and heading towards southern FL.  Key West and Miami are going to get hammered and THEN it's supposed to turn directly north and head straight up the middle of FL.

Kathy's Mom and sister are in Jacksonville and we are in GA.  We can't leave GA to get to them because of the traffic created by people evacuating FL.

This morning the news said the northern GA may also be subject to category 1 strength winds around this coming Tues./Wed.  Oh crap.

Stay tuned.  I'll update this post after the hurricane passes.

PVC Party 9-1-2017

OK, it's Labor Day weekend.  There's a party Friday night at Ray's cabin and we start playing a game called "The Ministers Cat."  It's a drinking game and fun as all get out.  Here are some pictures.  Some of the language in the videos might not be good for tender ears.  You were warned :)

A video on how to play "The Ministers cat."

If you don't play the game quick enough, you'll face "corporal punishment."  Here's someone getting spanked,which is usually the form of punishment handed out. :)

It hasn't been all play and no work!  I ripped up all the carpet in our trailer, and painted it.  We had new carpet installed few days later.  Coming soon our new king size bed for my big butt!  Pictures of finished "bedroom" in another post.
