Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 35

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 14th visiting with my family.

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 23rd.

As I approach my departure date…here are more photos of my only grandson Eric, who is one month away from turning 16…

In his Shoreline Baseball Academy Hammerheads uniform…



Recently I bought him a major league model baseball bat as an early birthday present. Just like the pros he has marked the bat with his jersey number…


Just like the pros he has applied some pine tar. Prior to batting he applies the pine tar to his hands for a secure grip…


He chose the #5 for his jersey because the number 5 is worn by his long-time hero, David Wright who plays third base for the New York Mets. Other famous players who have worn the #5 are Joe DiMaggio, Brooks Robinson, Hank Aaron, George Brett, Lou Boudreau, Hank Greenberg and Johnny Bench.

Last weekend he participated in an eleven team playoff tournament. His team finished third. In four games he had a number of hits including two home runs. This weekend he will play in a twenty team playoff tournament. In about two weeks he will be traveling to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to play in a national playoff tournament. Way to go, Eric!

A few days ago he stopped by to introduce his girlfriend Stephanie. They have been “going steady” for 14 months…


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!
