Slip Slidin’ Away

We spent much of the afternoon at the pool, where I managed to slip on some standing water and went down. Fortunately, no real damage was incurred, other than to my dignity. Later in the afternoon, we had Happy Hour with our neighbour Joyce, who appeared to be in her late 70’s, and is a bit of an inspiration. In the last couple of years, she has lost both her husband and her eldest son, but she continues to travel by herself in a Winnebago, accompanied only by her sawed-off shotgun, kept beside her bed. She grew up on a sheep ranch in Utah, and gave us a lot of good advice about RV’ing there, which we plan to do sometime. We spent a very pleasant time with her.
