Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 9

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

Mary has finally returned to her home in California. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

Yesterday my only grandson Eric, stopped by to visit. He will be 16 on August 11. He is an avid baseball player and aspires to be a catcher in the major leagues of baseball.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

In these photos he is showing me his $400 professional-model catchers mitt. He has a very generous mom and dad. He’s very serious about his baseball, hence no smile…




He puts a baseball into the mitt and then wraps it tightly with a belt to help the mitt keep the proper shape…


He stores the mitt in his 2015 high school year graduation bag…


On this particular day I gave him a ride to the baseball field where he was to umpire a little league play-off game. He’s been umpiring for the last three years. He’s a sophomore in high school and at 5’11”, he’s the tallest person in the family…


Way to go, Eric!

Enjoying visiting family is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
