Sunday Respite – Homeward Bound to the ‘Shenandoah’


 

 

On a personal note, I bid Florida an adieu. I can’t say exactly a fond one, but alas the chapter ends. I begin a new one. New beginnings in a Masonic retirement community. Now closer to the old Bunker and family and friends. I missed the seasons, the colors, cool mountain breezes and the lovely stream that meandered through the homestead. Tomorrow I will arrive at my destination with excitement and some trepidation. An acknowledgement that time has taken a toll on mind and body and well, enough said. In a more glum moment I was going to choose “Hotel California” but this seems a better fit.

I had chosen this piece once before, and seems so fitting now.

    Sounds like you’ll be happy there. Wishing you the best of times.
    We’ll miss you in Florida!
    I probably wouldn’t be happy in Florida myself. We live in Pensacola. When my wife and I married her folks and all their friends in Daytona and Ormond Beach had never heard of the place and had no idea it was part of Florida. Linda probably knows though where it is. Known as the Redneck Riviera… or LA…Lower Alabama. 🙂

      Yep, the Unit. My folks still live in Ocala (42 yrs), not many know where that is. LOL Lower Alabama, we lived in Tuscaloosa for 20 yrs, and moved here to western NY.

        Yeah, I read your previous comment about going through the tornado back when, and your happiness about living in western NY.
        I’m very familiar with Ocala. Horse country, Castro Farms and such. Also have very good friend from college days raised there. Tatum family. His parents are deceased now and he lives in Cocoa.
