Blog post ideas are few and far between. I guess I could discuss politics, or perhaps comic books. I love comic books. My life is pretty boring so its tough coming up with things to say. I plan on continuing to use this as a journal and document the highlights of things going on in my life.
So lets see, my grandson turned six. We had a birthday pool party for him at the house. It was a Pokémon party. Everything is Pokémon and fortnight with him now.
I had a wedding anniversary, number 35. 35 years of marriage plus another 5 of dating and living together. Due to the virus we didn’t do anything – Olive Garden takeout.
I’ve been buying camping gear with the plan to go camping in the fall. Got a big tent, some cots, pop up canopy tents, etc. Except now we are thinking of getting a Winnebago Micro Minnie travel trailer. We watch a lot of camping and RV shows on YouTube. However it has been extremely difficult to not only purchase the tent I wanted but now to find the RV I want. It seems the virus has turned everyone into a camper. Stuff is sold out all over with waiting list.
In addition to the camping gear, I bought a bike. Again, I had to look high and low to find a bike at a reasonable price. I didn’t want to pay more than $200 but I had to break that rule and spend $240 because there just isn’t any bicycles out there to buy that are inexpensive. They’ve been bought probably by the same folks who hoarded toilet paper.
I rode the bike for the first time tonight. Have not rode a bike in 20+ years so I took it easy and did a short 5 minute ride to get the feel for it. I need a new seat. I hope to take the bike on camping trips and ride trails.
So except for continue to work, that’s abut wraps up what’s been going on. This week will determine whether we get a travel trailer or stick with tents for the time being. I’m in discussions with an RV dealership in Ohio but of course the one I want is not in stock. *sigh*
