Short Trip

Finally something I can blog about!!!

Harry and I had a couple of trips planned.   I became worried that I wouldn't "hold-up" to make the trips since I still have some residual issues.  I told Harry about my concerns and we put our plans on hold until I felt more confident about travel. 

On Wednesday, early afternoon, Harry turned from his computer and asked me why we didn't do a "trial run" to the coast.  He thought we should leave on Saturday.  I guess he didn't want to give me a chance to worry myself out of a short trip.  Long story made short; we drove down to Ft Walton Beach, FL, on Saturday and came home on Monday.  The trip worked out just fine.  Harry told me that I did "real good" "better than (he) expected."

I did so enjoy getting away for a couple of days and seeing different scenery.  Unfortunately, there was a wide band of algae on and in the water next to the beach.  It wasn't an issue for us because we only intended to enjoy time watching the waves and relaxing.  We also went to the Gulfarium and met several reef enthusiasts.  The reef tank there was large and full of fish - not many coral -but hundreds of reef fish.

Of course, we left the cat at our house.  Joe and Keith saw to the reef tank chores and made  the cat feel loved.   Kitty made her displeasure known by sleeping (and leaving kitty fur) in places that she knows she isn't allowed to be.   At least she didn't throw up anywhere or ignore her litter box. 

It was a good weekend for the old farts.  We hope to travel more.

A big "HELLO" to all my blogging friends.  Hope you are doing well.

Woo hoo! I have miss you "old farts" and am happy for any sort of news-about nothing, about something...anything. It sounds like your weekend was good for you and I have to agree, you guys do need to get out and about. Medical issues be damned...be like Nike and just do it.

Kitties really have a way of making you feel guilty, don't they?

Happy Hump day. Take extra good care of yourself. Hugs.

Mary - so glad you found my blog. I am really excited to be on your journey with you. I know it's hard to find things to blog about when you're doing the same routine almost every day. I struggle with the same thing. But sometimes the routine is rather nice to have. And we're always here whenever you do post.

It's always good to get away, but the nice thing is getting home and back into your routine. Can you tell I a real home body?
