Whew,
Day one of the sale was over at 2pm. I am convinced some people are idiots. Some dude wanted to give me 100.00 for the generator. I told him no. He lambasted me and told me I would never get more. Older gent came up and was thrilled to give me the 200.00 But for the most part it went well.

My sister, Patty came over with the 3 yr old and helped me finish sorting and pricing. I thought Terry was good with the clothes, but she was a terror in the kitchen. She is a gourmet cook, and whittled me down to what I really needed and laughed over all the dishes. Wait till I go over to her house and point out all of the serving dishes.

Ryder plopped down on the floor with one of Terry's train books and all we heard out of him was OH WOW, I want one. (told him to ask uncle Terry).
He didn't want the book, he wants the real train!!

Well I'm pooped, and Cookie is standing at the door wanting to go out . There was a rabbit in the yard and she wants it. Not getting it!!

I managed to get back here in one piece, and dragged the new trailer over to work on it. I can now reach below my right ankle, and can walk briefly around the house, a few steps at a time. I had a problem when camping, I had to lay down on the bed, and my back woke me up at 4:30 in the morning. I was able to get back to sleep by rolling onto my side with a pillow stuffed between my legs, but was up again for good around 6.
I have to have a pillow between my legs when sleeping on my side so I don't put too much pressure on the feshly healing hip joint.
The Physical Therapy guy seems impressed. I don't know if he is happy, or waiting for me to make a mistake, and have to have more PT.

Good evening,

Yard/garage sale over and done. Had auction company in today to pick up all of the furniture, kitchen stuff and nic nacs that were left, but they didn't want all of it, so tomorrow a charity is coming in to pick up the rest. Then we are hopefully going to take Bertha to Ocala for camping this weekend with my sister and her family for Bertha's maiden voyage. Not everything is done, but I really could use a weekend to do very little. Then when we get back Monday evening, we start staying at Jeanies, and I'll have 2 or 3 days to clean the house and turn in the keys. The first weekend in June, I will spend sitting at the pool. Yes, I will be using mega sunscreen.

Marie

Marie, I know you're glad the yard sale is a done deal. You deserve a whole month by the pool . . . with a cool drink and cabana boy at your beck and call!

We're in the new place, I'll let you know how it goes. Lots of stuff to find a new home for, it's unbellievably difficult to get anyone to pick up stuff for their thrift stores. We are still waiting for someone from Salvation Army, Island Coast Aids Network, St. Vincent DePaul, St. Andrews, Goodwill, Kidney Foundation, or anyone else, to come pick our donations up.
Anyway, here's a photo taken from the back door, when I said it was on a lake, I meant it was ON a lake:

Good evening,

I gotta tell you, I have never had so much trouble giving stuff away as I have had these past few days!!!!!!!!!!! I have called every thrift store and charity in Lee county and I am unbelieving the receptions I am getting. I finally told St Vincent diPaul that I did not want a handout, I was trying to donate stuff for thier thrift store. Most told me they could not come until the middle of June or 1st of July. But all would take it if I loaded the truck and brought it to them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went to the liquor store to get boxes and the kid asked me if he could help me with anything else. I told him yes, see if you can find someone to come get the free furniture and stuff from my house. Turned out he needed stuff and he came out and picked up some stuff in his car. He was very young and had just gotten a place and didn't know how he was going to fill it. We helped!!!! Now I need more of him.

Well, I'm off to bed, Good night all and may God Bless

Marie

It was an interesting sight watching the lad's Ford Escort sedan staggering away from our house with the coffee table on the roof, end tables, some lamps, VCR, and odds and ends stuffed in every orifice.

He was probably thrilled!!! You made his day I'm sure...your ears must be burning, because I'm sure he's talking about you to all his friends! IMO it's better to help out a young guy just starting out than an ungrateful thrift store.

The view from your new place is lovely...enjoy it 'til you're ready to hit the road!

Great view from the new place. Glad to hear the 'out with the old, in with the new' is moving right along for you. A fella just don't know how much he has until he has to move it out.

Thanks for the advise on bigeasy, we're planning our first trip next weekend. We'll probably go to a local park, probably not more than 25 or 30 miles. Maybe a Corps of Engineers park on Lake Lanier in north GA, or a state park. Hopefully this will give me a chance to sharpen my towing skills.

I look forward to more reading on your full time life.

Rusty, the COE parks don't have sewer hookups at every site, you will need to pick up a blue (the last one I bought really was grey)tank so you can use the shower and sinks without dumping on the ground. I found out about it the hard way when I first started camping at them, but the campground host was helpful enough to find a bucket to put under the drain outlet. The one I got last week was an 18 gallon tank, on 4 wheels, with a reinforced handle and fill/dump hose, for about $150 at Camping World.
Happy camping, and don't forget to:
1-take lots of pictures.
2-take along a pad and pencil to write down stuff you want to fix or change when you get home.

Yeaaaa!

Salvation army said they were coming tomorrow to pick stuff up. Terry and I will be in Tampa for ortho appointment and Friday to have the IVC filter removed, sooooo, hired my 14 year old nephew to come over and help move everything to the back porch. Told SA the stuff was on the back porch and told them 3 times we would not be there, but to take the stuff. Anyone wanta bet they don't take it? Connor worked his skinny little butt off for us so when I took him home, I gave him 20.00, he said he would have done it for 10.00, and I told him I was paying 20.00. Got a hug out of him. Cute kid!!

So, now just have to finish getting stuff over to new abode and cleaning the house and turning in the keys.. Have mercy I am tired!

Marie

I bet you are! Last time I moved I said 'never again'. It's hard work. At least you're moving to a lovely lakeside view. Hope the Salvation Army comes through.

BTW, I can relate to the young man in the Escort. When I was his age with barely a pot or pan, your offer of "stuff" would have been an absolute windfall. I can imagine his delight and thankfulness. You were his blessing that day.

We still have to transport my multiple huge toolboxes to storage, and some other odds and ends as well.

I can volunteer a storage location. Glad to see you kept the tools.
