Today is : Wednesday, the 27th of September 2023.

Today will be the first showing of the Reality Show Survivor, Season 45.

Since its first airing, May 31, 2000, it will continue to air on CBS Television.

Patti has been an avid “Survivor Fan” since the first show! I became interested in the show in the Spring of 2004, Survivor All Stars, Season 8 and have followed it with Patti ever since. Today Patti got online and studied the cast, writing down all of their names, ages and professions. 

I just love Wikipedia. I am proud to contribute financially to Wikipedia.

For all you may want to know and possibly a lot more you don’t care to read, see the below Wikipedia link..

Here we go my Dearest Patti .. Survivor Season 45!

After a lot of thought, I have decided, at least for the time being, to daily, here on dotnet, show some photographs that I snapped on our September 19-24 trip to Manley Hot Springs. I want to publish a post on blogspot BUT that will be a long post and frankly, at this instant, I just don’t have the “get up and go” to put together a long blogspot Post.

Here we go beginning on Tuesday, September 19th.

We were blessed with great weather as we drove out of Anchorage heading for Fairbanks. Just look at the first four photos taken at our Condo before we left.

The real scenery going North, begins when we get into the mountains about 130 miles North of Anchorage.

There you have it.

Tomorrow I will continue this process.

On our website here, we have a very long list of “Categories”. These “Categories” serve as “Subtitles” to each Post we publish. They have a real purpose. Having Categories / Subtitles allows us to “earmark” Posts so we can go back in time and find topics we may want to refer back to. We have so many (and some are used only once or twice) that I am reluctant to add new ones unless they would really serve a purpose.

Below is a “New Category” BUT I am NOT going to formally add to our list!

Myths / False Truths About Senior Citizens.

Oh Oh! What is a Senior Citizen.

Senior Citizen : For me that is age 80 and above.

Yes! Oh Yes! I know!

I just Googled “Senior Citizen” : According to Medicare, a senior is 65 years old or older. However, Social Security benefits are eligible for seniors starting at 62, even though the Social Security Office reports that 67 is the age of retirement. Yet if you are 55 and you visit an Arby’s or McDonald’s you can get a senior discount. So you take your pick!

Myths / False Truths About Senior Citizens. Get a good night of sleep and you will be fine in the morning.

This Myth or False Truth is absolutely and positively NOT true for me! When I am really tired, to the point of exhaustion, one good night of sleep is “just the beginning”. The past 6 days were brutal! I have to accept the fact it will take me a few days to snap back.

Four of the past 6 days involved driving 360 miles on each of two days (Tuesday and Sunday), and 160 rural miles on each of the other two days (Thursday and Friday). The total miles (including local driving in Fairbanks) we drove was eleven hundred and two (1,102) miles! Just the driving was tiring and Yes! Patti drove her fair share of miles to allow me to rest.

Moving into a motel room and packing out of a room is tiring.

The emotions around selling our cabin and making our “Swan Song Visit” to our cabin of 25 years was tiring. And in Manley Hot Springs we were very busy attempting to decide what to take back to Anchorage with us.

Bottom Line : Patti and I are very tired.

I am going to end this Post in a very positive way so look forward its very end!

Below is a mere “sampling of photos” that I took during our trip. I plan to post our scenic photos on blogspot in a few days.
