Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 5

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

Mary has been in Las Vegas, Nevada for her grandson’s high school graduation for the last several days. She returned to her home in Murphys, California yesterday.

For the short while I’ve been here, I’ve seen not a whole lot of my family as they are all so busy with their lives. Oh well, I’ll catch them as I can.

If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you’ll remember a few months back I became a life member on the Veterans Of Foreign Wars…aka VFW. I’ve found the guys like to wear hats identifying where they served…so I thought I would follow suit…

Here’s my new hat…


I was a Radarman stationed aboard USS Boston from 1959 – 1962. You can read all about the USS Boston by clicking this Wikipedia link…

There’s a nice Veterans Hall only a couple of miles from my son’s home which I visited last Sunday. I plan on going there regularly while here.

Enjoying visiting with my fellow veterans 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!
