Awwww……. is what you’ll say

This is a very cute and fuzzy kitten I saw on my walk today. Two of its littermates took off and hid when they saw me. This little guy just hopped up on a step and turned to look at me. Then he slowly sauntered off like he owned the world.

The pandemic is still going strong. Don’t let your guard down friends!

Pumpkin’s watery grave

This Jack O Lantern probably graced someone’s front porch last weekend for Halloween. Even though you can’t see the face, the top removal is evidence of some decorative artwork. How or why this pumpkin found its way into the center of this shallow river is a mystery.

No more campaign ads, now we just have to get through the counting and lawsuits. Be safe! COVID’s getting worse just about everywhere. 

A surprise reptilian visitor

We were planting some new bulbs today in our herb/flower garden. We also moved some Asiatic lily bulbs from the front of the house to the back yard as well. When I looked into a bucket we used to move the lily bulbs I noticed this colorful little guy. He is a Five Lined Skink. He is about 5 inches long, and he has lost a part of his tail. We’ve never seen one around before. He’s now making a new home in our bulb/herb/flower garden.

Carpet of leaves

A true sign of fall can be seen in yards and forested areas. A carpet of leaves has developed in our yard as can be seen in the image.  You can barely see the fence and mulched bed circling the maple tree.

Continue to follow recommended safety precautions. Avoid the virus.

More color of fall

Even though there have been two nights with frost and hard freezes there are still trees with beautiful fall leaves. Indiana is finally getting some much needed rainfall as well.

I trust you and yours are staying safe in whatever you are doing during these trying times.

A goose on the lake

If you have been following Roadtirement, you know we have been getting out of the house and going to some RV parks to get away from our COVID-19 “isolation”. We went back to the Thousand Trails Indian Lakes campground in Batesville.

Calm lake view

This park has great paved roads for bicycle riding, and there are no large hills that are hard to climb. The pretty scenery also is nice for walks. It is nice to get away in our motorhome and to know that we are in a safe environment. Having our own self contained “house on wheels” means we do not have to use public facilities at all.

It has been reported that RV sales are booming as many have discovered the having your own facilities is safest during the coronavirus pandemic. We talked (at a safe distance of course) to a fellow who had just bought an new motorhome so he and his wife could travel safely. They were on their first time out with their new rig.

Stay safe as you start to get back out, friends, stay safe!

Our best 35 years

Roadtirement is celebrating this week. Yes, 35 years ago this week Maj and Sher were married. The past 35 years have, we both agree, been the best years of our lives.

35 years ago

Still enjoying our best years

We were going to do something special this fall for our anniversary celebration. That pesky and dangerous virus however has taken that idea off the table this year. We will let you know when and what we do when we do celebrate.
