A GHOST FROM THE PAST?

Has it been nearly two years since I have dusted this blog off? (rhetorical question). I image anyone who used to read this blog has long since given up on finding any new post and more than likely wonder if I am still on the right side of this earth! Well I am here to tell you that both my wife and I are alive and mostly well. However if it is more exciting for you to think so, then just think of me as a ghost from the past (lol).

We have been living here at Barksdale AFB since my last post and a lot of life has been happening to us, for us and around us!  The most exciting event being the birth of my youngest grandson, Benjamin Michael.  Funny how new grandchildren will take your mind off your dream of traveling fulltime!




As you can see, our focus has changed! Benjamin was born on March 29th 2014 and Cheryl retired in June to take care of him while mom and dad work. Since then he has spent a lot of time at our home on wheels. He has been to Gulf Shores, Alabama and Gaffney, South Carolina in the motorhome and loves traveling.




 
 



Since his birth, time has passed swiftly and lo and behold, I finally retired! Now we are free the hit the highways and bi-ways, travel at will. The only low point is that Benjamin will not be traveling with us. ( or at least not all  the time). Our first trip will be Camp Red Bay in April, after my daughter in law becomes a full time mommy and no longer needs us. We will also be traveling to Kentucky to visit our some of our family.  We may even attend a rally somewhere in between!

Anyway I will really try to post at least once a month if not more. Who knows maybe life will get really interesting and writing will come easy!! God Bless us all........
