A Big Thanks! and Back to Normal

Sarasota, FL      High:  77    Low:  62

Wouldn't you know! Our family has all returned home safe and sound and the weather warms up...phooey! Oh, well, you can't control the weather, that's for sure!  And the kids got to go to the beach, swim in the pool a BUNCH of times, see alligators, climb a canopy tower, have a ton of fun, and Eldo and Sparky got to see all their children and grandchildren....
Sparky's favorite photo of her little grandson.....It is very gratifying when you see your adult children become parents and can see that they are doing a great job! Kerry is doing a great job as a first time mom.....

We're recuperating, doing laundry, taking down the Christmas decorations, and just relaxing, thinking about what we might want to do this coming month in Sarasota and the surrounding area.

We just want to say thank you to everybody who reads us, the people who signed up to follow, and the wonderful communication we get from our readers...whether you say something or not, we just love it that people like to get up and read us in the morning or sometime during the day....Sparky was startled to see over 2, 300 page views in one week just in the U.S. this past week! The stats aren't important, what really matters is we are documenting this wonderful lifestyle as we go along....a daily log of incredible experiences, a lifetime of memories. It's still a completely new experience for Sparky and Eldo as far as going places we've never been, meeting new friends, staying in touch with old friends, and continuing to experience good health. We've had minimal problems with our rig and are hoping that continues as well! Life doesn't get much better than that!

We are just really loving what we do, traveling as full time RVers......We love hearing your stories, seeing your photos, it helps us feel connected to a larger community of wonderful people....RVers really are a special bunch of people, and we've enjoyed knowing you and meeting you....We hope to stay in touch for yet another year of fabulous experiences...We hope you get to have a wonderful New Year and experience some great things in your lives, too!

  1. Happy and Healthy New Year to both of you!!

    Safe Travels and Happy Trails.....

  2. How nice of you to say that about all of us :) We feel so far away from all of our RV friends while out here in CA. Somehow everyone gravitates toward the east coast! Next winter, Florida :)

  3. So glad your combined family time turned out so well. I know it must have been a lot of work to arrange it all but I'm sure your family all are very grateful.

  4. It's a pleasure reading your blogs. That's why we keep coming back!
