I made it with room to spare

This evening my apartment is completely empty and sparkling clean. Tomorrow I will sweep the patio for the final time and turn in the keys. It's hard to believe I was moving in about 13 months ago. I really don't like apartment living, but the location was perfect, the rent was affordable, and I enjoyed being close to the kids, the eye doctor (cataract), and various businesses I patronized. The noise from upstairs kept me awake at nights sometimes, and the mold and related issues that I experienced just recently amounted to the nails in the coffin! But I'm not sorry I lived here for the time I did - it was what I needed when I decided to get out of the 5th wheel.

Staying at Jeannie & Donald's might put some weight on me. Last night Donald fixed chicken marsala, and tonight was shrimp on a bed of spinach and basil, mixed with a sauce of mayonnaise and cognac as well as some spices I'm not sure about. Served in a giant margarita glass, it was as beautiful as it was delicious. He cooks some wonderful meals and I'm lucky to be here for a couple of weeks.

The cover for the truck is scheduled to arrive in Sacramento this Saturday, but since I didn't pay extra for weekend delivery I will get it on Monday. I hope it installs as easy as it is supposed to, and that it will keep the cargo safe and dry and critter-proof!


  1. Glad the move out went well. The food sounds good-enjoy!

  2. I'm not sure I'd want to leave that chef behind. What wonderful food. And what a great feeling to have all that apartment work behind you and know that you have room to buy something new and fun along the way.

  3. I agree with Jim and Sandie, I'd hate to leave the chef behind too. Hope you post pictures after installing the cover on your truck.

  4. Do you have an extra chair at that table? Just jokin, but when he finally does write his cook book, be sure and share where we can buy it... :)

  5. I have tent camped in all 48 lower states, but have a class B now. I love an air matress for sleeping in a tent. A twin blows up with a hand or foot pump in just a few minutes.
