The Last Day

     This is where the Sphinx use to be:

      I sold it today.

     Barbara is crying (she was still inside).

     Our original plan was to tour the Continent for 5 years and then re-evaluate. It has now been 5 years, having purchased the Sphinx January, 2016. Since we are both in good health, we would have continued until our health determined otherwise. However, with the China Virus greatly limiting where we can travel, we decided it was not worth the hassle.

     During the last five years we have been to 37 States, including Alaska, 3 Canadian Providences and 1 Canadian Territory. We have been to the Arctic Circle and back.

     Where were our favorite places? Mine was the Badlands of South Dakota, and Barbara’s was the Albuquerque, New Mexico Hot Air Balloon Festival.

     We are settling into the Old Age Home. We went to an orientation the other day, the rows of seats in front of us looked like a box of Q-Tips. I think I am too young to be here. However, it is a good deal: we give them all of our money and they are responsible for taking care of us the rest of our lives. This is a great relief to our Granddaughter to whom I said, “You don’t have to repay us any of the money we used to help you with dentist, college, etc. but you have to take care of me when I am old and drooling.”

     My original intent for the blog was to keep everyone informed of our location on the Continent. Obviously it turned into more than that. I hoped I have given you a detailed look into some the interesting places our County has to offer, along with history of the United States from a different point of view, peppered with a little bit of humor and sarcasm.

     Thank you for being my audience.
