Got Our Gigs Back

The first day of August gave us a fresh start on our monthly allotment of 20 GBs worth of Internet time with our Millenicom MiFi.  You get so spoiled having access everywhere you go that when it cuts off, it is a bit of a pain having to search out free WiFi to stay connected.  Thankfully, a ready supply of Dunkin Donuts helped ease that pain…  :c)

Once again we’re thankful for the flexibility our full time life gives us.  We can change plans at a moment’s notice.  We got a phone call that my dad was in the hospital with a pretty bad infection in his arm.  No idea how it happened, but he had a procedure to clean out the infection and will stay in the hospital until early next week to monitor the healing process.

Since we’re only two hours away, we went to see him and all is coming along well, he is in great spirits and may be sent home Sunday or Monday, but will need some help at home.  We’ll be packing up here at the Navy campground and heading to stay with him for a week or so until he’s back to full strength.

His house has a long, straight driveway that we can park the Journey in, but it’s a tight turn to get into off the country road he lives on.  Hopefully the grass won’t be too wet and soggy because I’ll have to cut across part of it to swing and make the turn in and I don’t want to get stuck.  Of course, right now it is pouring rain out.  Fingers crossed.

It will be hard to say goodbye to Anabelle and baby Elizabeth (and her mommy and daddy), but knowing that we will be back again does ease the sadness. 


On the bright side, I’ll be able to keep some change in my pocket now, Anabelle always asks me for coins for her piggy bank.  Can’t turn her down when she looks at me with her baby blues.


Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.



  1. Glad you got some new GB's, kind of like getting your grove back on. Wish your dad a speedy recovery.

  2. Prayers for your dad. Good luck getting in his drive.

  3. It is wonderful that you can pack up and go help your dad. I hope they figure out what caused this odd thing for him. Wishing him the best. Bet you'll try to drive that cool car of his if you have to chauffeur him anywhere. :-) Is Anabell's change is what's left from buying those donuts?

  4. Hopefully you father is a quick healer.
    Instead of driving in to his driveway why not unhooking the toad and back the Journey in. You can accomplish a tighter turn that way.
    It is bitter sweet leaving the ones you love behind but like you said knowing you'll be back helps to ease the pain.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. That's exactly what I'm planning to do, because the road is so narrow, I have to be careful of the nose swing on some mailboxes along the road.

  5. Prayers for your dad's healing. Gotta take care of our dads!

  6. So glad you're back - we were all suffering from Paul withdrawal! Hope yor Dad's okay.

  7. Hmmm, didn't you learn your lesson about cutting corners not to long ago??? Glad your dads doing good.

  8. Thoughts and prayers for your Dad!
    Good luck getting into that driveway. You can do it!

  9. How wonderful that you are able to be where you are needed most!! Hope Dad is healed quickly and back to enjoying life. You two might need a little R&R before long;o)) Safe travels and successful turns!!!

  10. Sorry to hear about your Dad but glad to hear he's getting proper medical attention. Infections are not anything to fool around with.

    Hey, with those beautiful 'baby blues' you're lucky to be only tossing coins into Anabelle's piggy bank - it could be greenbacks!

  11. That's why our homes have wheels! Nice to be able to go where we are needed. Wishing your dad a speedy and full recovery!

  12. Here's to a quick recovery for your dad.

  13. Glad you're not gigless anymore. I hope your dad makes a speedy recovery and you don't get stuck.

  14. That sure is the nice part about RV life. Speedy recovery to your Dad. Hope you make the turn okay. We got stuck in a ditch one time and oh that was not a pretty sight in our Brand New Discovery lol. Not to mention JB------- well that is another story lol
