Trip Log

September 30, 2023

Open houses, showings, doctor appointments and golf have filled up the second half of September. Open houses are for two hours and we need to be out of the house. During one of the open houses we took Mike out to lunch at Ski Beach. He has been singing its praises and we have not been.

Left early Monday morning for a six-hour drive to Lorton. The weather and traffic was fine and arrived in plenty of time. It was a good ride and we arrived in Sanford on time. We had only a 40-minute wait for our car and an uneventful ride and arrived home just before noon.

September 10, 2023

Drove to Erie on Wednesday after breakfast and a nice visit with Elyse. We stayed with Bob and Cathy which is very convenient and lets us spend more time with them. We had a chance to visit the dock and drive around the Peninsula.

September 5, 2023

After the morning with Mike, we drove to State College and checked into our motel. Elyse is starting a new job shortly as a community planner for Centre County. She is happy because this was her major/degree at Penn State.

September 4, 2023

Annika left last night because she had to work at the casino today. She is a pastry chef. Mike took us out to his farm for a picnic. After eating and a rest we picked apples, plums and pears from his orchard.

September 3, 2023

After breakfast at the Steel City Coffeehouse and Brewery (our go-to breakfast location) with Mike and Annika we drove out to the Wharton Esherick Museum in Malvern just outside Valley Forge Park. Mike had purchased tickets for a tour of the museum.

September 2, 2023

Before the trip our time was spent with showings and open houses. We both had doctors' appointments since our blood sugar levels were high, probably due to all the sweets during the holidays. We are both back to normal now.

August 19, 2023

We have put the house up for sale again, this time with The Villages and the same realtor who sold us the house. Last time was to see if we could take advantage of the bubble. This time we are being more realistic.

August 3, 2023

Alesa has tested negative twice over the last 48 hours so we are both covid free and will continue normal activities to include a Sunday tee time. We have kept busy in the meantime.

July 31, 2023

End of July and the end of an era. Our baby, Jeff, turns 50 tomorrow and our whole next generation is now eligible for AARP. A good thing that age is only in the mind and, apparently, in the bones as well.
