78 degrees and no rain!

We slept late this morning……after 10:00.  But we stayed up until almost 1:30 a.m.  Even Fred slept late.  Guess he is getting lazy too. LOL

Nice weather today.  Sunny and 78 degrees. Yeah!!!  That’s what I like.  After lunch John and I drove over to the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor’s Center.  It is a very nice facility with lots of touring options.  There is so much to see here.

We plan to go back and do some tours and sightseeing during in the next few days, rain or shine.  Thinking about going to the Harley Davidson Museum.  This evening, before it got dark, John was outside playing his dulcimer again.


While he played a couple stopped by and introduced themselves (Gary and Penny from Florida).  He was a retired firefighter also.  We meet a lot of fellow retired firefighters in our travels.

On one of my outings with Fred today, I met a lady named Kathy who stopped to talk.  She immediately made friends with Fred and was rubbing his ears.  He was in hog heaven. 


Fred asleep in his bed while we were watching TV tonight.  One of his favorite places.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.


  1. I.M. hatin' to be the one to break the news to ya at this late date, but Fred has pulled the wool over yer eyebrows. He has led you to think her are a hog so's you'll feed him more, but he are really a dog, so ya should be a sayin' he were in dog heaven.

  2. I want to adopt Fred..I promise I'll let you have visitation rights..(just kidding, of course). Fred needs his own TV show...
    Glad you finally caught a break on the rain...I was touching the computer screen trying to channel history..LOVE IT!!!

  3. Fred looks so happy and content on his bed. We would like to train Rusty, our dog, to sleep in his on the road instead of having to put his large crate in the truck. I guess all things in time with puppies. Thanks for your kind words about my health.
