I don’t want to shock any of you here BUT, I wonder how many of you (other senior citizens) could live in motels as we do for some months at a time?
Patti and I full well know that we are part-and-parcel of a greater phenomenon called the ‘Snow Birds’. However, most of the ‘Snow Birds’ have, more-or-less, permanent residences down here in the Southern Climes (and I must include Florida in this category).
We sort of ‘toy’ with the idea of getting a small apartment or even a condominium but aren’t ready to act upon such a concept. An apartment or a condo would tie-us-down to one place and we would cease to be free-as-birds to go where we want to go and to do it when we want to do it. I studied the economics of Recreational Vehicles / RVs (I will not go into my findings here) and NO WAY does an RV ‘pan-out’ for us. It is vastly less expensive to just stay in motels / hotels.
The one small exception to our being free-as-birds is that of our Mayo Clinic Medical Issues which by-the-by continue.
Back to my beginning above. Each move takes something out of us. This last move, Monday the 5th of March, certainly took-its-toll. But we are still doing things we enjoy. This week I did some baseball with Detroit Tiger Tom and Ginny. Patti had-to-pass because of her spinal issues (sitting in a hard, uncomfortable seat at a baseball park is not too spinal-friendy, at least for Patti) ..
Enough for now, it is just past 5AM (O’ Dark O’ Clock) and I am going to go back to bed after getting the above blogspot Post written and published.
Over and out ..
