I love this time of year. There are days when neither Air Conditioning nor Heat are needed. There just isn't enough of them. As the days grow shorter it brings to mind that our days are growing short too.
But first: The Senior Center has special dress days on Thursdays. Yesterday was crazy hat and tie. I wore my winter hat that looks like Elmer Fudd, Len wore his Christmas cowboy hat. I wore a compression sock as a tie, he wore his flannel bathrobes belt. No picture was taken.
Last week it was mixed prints day. I wore a flowered top and a pair of his PJ printed bottoms. He wore a printed shirt, printed welders cap. He absolutely refused to be seen in public with anything but jeans. Daughter in law Lois to the rescue. She volunteered to take an old pair of his jeans and paint something on them.
This is what Biscuit thought of it.
After a slow few month's hosting RV guests through Boondockers Welcome, we have 10 reservations on the books. Our 266th guest arrives later today.
This summer it was rainy here in north Alabama. I was forever mowing grass. Now we are terribly dry to the extent there is a burn ban. We had wanted to burn some shrubs and a pile of trees and branches we had removed but this is not the time. Seems strange not having to mow every day.
As I stated at the start of this blog, along with shorter days is the fact that our own days are shorter. I have a need to be prepared. One way to that end is to update wills. That was completed this week. I cannot stress enough how important it is to make ones wishes known to be less of a burden on family when the time comes.
Along with our wills we have:
Power of Attorney designations.
Durable Power of Attorney for health care.
A list of items we want to pass down to certain people outside of the wills,
A list of things to know such as bank and investment accounts, where to find passwords, keys to safes, how bills are paid and to whom, info on life insurance, etc.
And a list of whom to notify and their phone numbers (one person is provided with this list).
I state all of the above because I have seen so many instances where the surviving spouse or children are at a loss of where to begin. Four of our children will receive copies of the above.
Well, that's my preaching for today!
ENJOY FALL SEASON. Until next time.
