I rented an apartment in Lighthouse Point about 10 miles north of Fort Lauderdale too far for a day drive to Islamorada or Daytona Beach. I bought new furniture because mr.a told me we were selling the house and moving south when will I ever learn to get all of the facts before making expensive decisions. Now he wants to keep the house!
Over the summer I pushed through several unfinished contractor related jobs but there will always be rotted boards to replace, driveways to reseal, grout-work to be pointed-up and mr.a is either clueless or too tired to do the work. If I walk away for the entire winter (again) I'm afraid of what I'll find when I return so I'm packing up the apartment and shipping three beautiful rooms-to-go north sometime in December.
Never fear ~ ~ I'm not grounded here. Before I made the decision to move, I purchased a very small travel trailer (now I'm going to try living in it around mid to northern Florida for a few months this winter) and ordered (still waiting for it) a new Jeep 4 door Unlimited to tow everything. My trike is still down there somewhere in Jupiter, my upstairs neighbor moved it into his garage (in June when I couldn't get back down there to move it myself ~ there are nice guys left in this world) when his lease was up. I'll find a you-store-it type of spot to keep it out of the weather near me till next spring when I'll try to ride it north or buy a utility trailer to tow it home ~ I need my stuff to be where I am.

My new ride ~
Home away from home ~
Do you still have a big parking lot or did you move? You never got to meet Miss Frodo.


The temporary end to having a place in the south came when I decided to spend a small fortune correcting the damage a horrible dentist left me looking at for the past 5 years. I've seen one too many photos where I look like I've just walked away from a bar-fight. I want my old face back! I know I'll still be sportin' a lopsided smile but without the fat lip it will be easier to accept.

BTW
Beautiful women should avoid homely female dentist who want to correct your cute little overbite.


I'm so very glad you got to see The Keys!
