Extended winter Vacations!!!

Posted 04-04-2016 at 11:19 AM by onebuck

Hi,

Officially, my wife and I are now Florida homeowners!! Closed on the property this mourning. I think we will be leaving in Oct/16 and not returning until late April/17. Right now it's cold outside and chance of rain later in the week. Spoke to a friend in Florida this mourning and it's in the mid 70s', expecting to get to the mid 80s' today. We've got a great community in Florida with loads of activities. Keep the wife busy, while I golf!!

My wife has told me there...

So spring is here, really??

Hi,

Been home for three weeks today and spring is in the chilly air! Played some senior golf with other members on some warmer days. It's 40 F outside and a bit cold to be on the course.

I have been trying to get things ready for the season. I took my Cub into the shop for some warranty work. Turns out the shop said 'The trans-axle had to be replaced. To much work to just replace the seals and that the time spent would exceed the money earned from the Cub warranty.'...

Hi,

Back and rested after my extended Florida vacation. My wife and I decided to become snow birds. We are purchasing a home in a 55+ community southwest of Orlando at Polo Park East. My wife informed me we were going to leave in December/16 for our next vacation. She did not want another Christmas without the Grandchildren (5 live in Florida now). We looked at the the costs for our several vacations to Florida and decided it was best to purchase a nice home in a 55+ community with...

Hi,

One week until Christmas and we are having a mild late fall. I played Golf the other day since it was 60 with a little breeze. Boy that was great! We do need a hard freeze so as to winter the bugs. Maybe it's about time to work on the snow thrower because time will be short before the storms will be placing a blanket over us again. They are getting a lot in the plains so it won't be long for us to get some snow.

I remember long ago the winters in Northern Illinois....

Hi,

I woke up this mourning to find over 3" snow fall today. Too much too early, just playing a round of golf here last week and it was 60 with slight wind. Now its 30 expecting another 1" or more. Glad I got most of my outside work done earlier this week. Since my move from the farm into town it seems that my to-do list is bigger than anything while on the farm. I had a routine on the farm to get all the chores done so there were not many minor to-do that accumulated....
