Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

It's dreary outside, my work is done for the day and I sit here thinking about all the sunrises I experienced when I was on the road.  My bed (in the van) is across the back. Some mornings I'd roll over in bed, open the curtains and watch the sun rise. It amazed me that… Continue reading Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

2 Years Ago Today – Living Life With No Regrets

A Facebook memory popped up today and it prompted me to write about it. The memory was from January 28, 2018. At the time, I was in warm, sunny Homestead Florida visiting Nikki. Nikki, Cookie and I had just been to Petco. Pets are allowed in Petco so we took Cookie inside. He went into… Continue reading 2 Years Ago Today – Living Life With No Regrets
