Not really. The movers are coming tomorrow, Wednesday. However, today I have to take apart Pat’s and my computers, printers, etc. and pack them so the movers can move them. I probably won’t be back online for a few days. Everything else is just about packed.
The TVs and Satellite box will be packed up after Dancing With the Stars finale. We have to see who wins. My money is on the blond (I don’t remember her name) or the young girl. The dark horse (no pun intended) is the football player.
How about some moving joke?
I sent flowers to someone who was moving to Florida for a job promotion. I also sent flowers the same day to a funeral for a friend.
I found out later that the flower shop got the cards mixed up. They sent the card to the guy who was moving that said, “Deepest Condolences,” and sent the card to the funeral home that said, “I know it’s hot where you’re going, but you deserve it!
A man walks into his bedroom and sees his wife packing a suitcase.He says,”What are you doing?”She answers, “I’m moving to Las Vegas. I heard prostitutes there get paid $400 for doing what I do for you for free!”Later that night on her way out the wife walks into the bedroom and sees her husband packing his suitcase.When she asks him where he’s going, he replies…”I’m going to Vegas too. I want to see you live on $800 a year!”
A family had spent the day moving from their Iowa farmhouse into a brand new house in a nearby development. Very early the next morning, their 3 year old son ran into the parent’s bedroom to wake them up. The mother dressed him and told him to go play in the yard.
About 30 minutes later, he came running back, “Mommy! Mommy!” he exclaimed, “Everybody has doorbells—and they ALL work!”
One day Little Johnny went to his father, and asked him if he could buy him a $200 bicycle for his birthday. Little Johnny’s father said, “Johnny, we have an $80,000 mortgage on the house, and you want me to buy you a bicycle? Wait until Christmas!”
Christmas came around, and Little Johnny asked again. The father said, “Well, the mortgage is still extremely high, sorry kiddo. Ask me again some other time.”
Well, about 2 days later, the boy was seen walking out of the house with all his belongings in a suitcase. The father felt sorry for him, and asked him why he was leaving.
Little Johnny said, “Yesterday I was walking past your room, and I heard you say that you were ‘pulling out,’ and mommy said that ‘you should wait because she was coming, too….’
“And I’ll be DAMNED if I’m gonna get stuck with your $80,000 mortgage!”
See you guys when I get hook back up!
Peace, Love and have a blessed week!
I HATE MOVING!
After being in the same place for 13 months we have to move. We don’t have to move right but we’ll still have to move.
We moved into Sandy Oaks RV Resort Park into a rent/lease double wide trailer. We were told at the time that when we moved out the trailer would be gutted, rebuilt and the trailer would be put up for sale. There was not set length of time that we had to move out. We talked to Doug (one of the park owners) and was told that he and his wife owned the trailer and not the park. After talking to Doug, I thought we had settled on a price for the trailer. It was a lower price than the other trailers around it, but that was because Doug said that was because it would cost a “bunch” of money to renovate the trailer.
Since it was the start of Snowbird Season down here, Doug got busy with running the park and activities. We weren’t in a hurry (our mistake) to sign papers to buy the home. As luck would have it, a few weeks later, Doug was out riding his motor cycle. A car blew a stop sign and Doug T-boned the car at 50 MPH. Doug survived but didn’t fare to well. He has been in and out of a coma and not recovering to well.
To make a long story short, Doug’s father took over the running of the park. When we got down to buying the house the price increased tremendously. Close to a new renovated trailer. Since we had nothing in writing and Doug out of it we didn’t accept the new “deal”.
We looked around and found a house not to far away from where we are now but we’ll miss the pool and “Senior Summer Camp”. LOL
I’ll probably be missing for a week because of moving Yes, I will be getting a better internet service. I should be able to kiss Verizon internet goodbye!
How was your week?
Things I’ve learned since moving to Florida…
1. Just because the speed limit is 55MPH you have the right to drive 10MPH under the speed limit. Even on sunny clear days.
2. Health care in Florida is much better than up North. Doctor’s appointments are on time or real close to on time. I think that’s because there are more Doctors in Florida than anywhere else. Seniors won’t put up with the late Doctor crap as people do up North. When Doctors do run late the staff tells you and asks if you want to reschedule.
3. There aren’t any, or very few, bakeries in my area. You have to go to Publix or Winn-Dixie for bakery.
4. When the local Church has a craft fair the bakery sells out fast. (see number 3)
5. Hot wings may be considered the state food. They are served everywhere. A lot of places have an all you can eat wing night. YUM!!!!
6. Don’t feed the alligators. They do bite the hand that feeds them. Not only the hand but the arm, leg, head, body, etc.
7. Life is a lot slower than up North. Things don’t have to be done last week or yesterday, but maybe tomorrow.
8. St. Augustine is the most haunted city in Florida.
9. Unless we are under a hurricane warning the rain lasts for only 5 minutes at time. It may rain several times a day but for 5 minutes. Yes, that is strange but manageable.
10. I enjoy retired life.
