Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

More Goodbye’s

 

Another good week here at the trailer hood.

We had a week of saying good bye to some new to us good friends as fulltime RV’ers you hear about saying goodbye to the people you meet and it is never easy,but it’s just part of the life style.

We met Glen and Jan six week’s ago. Glen is a retired Army Colonel that is working for a military contractor  at Fort  Leavenworth,KS.

We had a good time visiting with them  having cookouts,camp fires and going out to eat. Last week we all went to the pool hall tavern in town.

Six weeks went by so fast and then it was time to say goodbye Saturday as they headed to Oklahoma to visit family.

We will see them down the road. Colonel thank you for your service..

We know what you mean about saying good-bye. I am a very emotional person and end up with tears in my eyes most of the time. Glad you had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful couple.
Safe travels to your next destination.

Bittersweet...yes, but it's always a happy reunion when you run into them again down the road some where.

As Judy said, when a fulltimer, we often meet again down the road. AND we are so fortunate there is the Internet and email.

Even though you have to say goodbye, the memories will always be there - along with your blogs and photos!

..and therein lies the beauty of full timing..making friend from all walks of life and parts of this wonderful world...I have a feeling you will see them again.

I dreaded for days when we had to say good bye to our friends at Hardin Ridge. You are always afraid something may happen and you may not meet again. But....like you said that is part of this life style.
