Today On The Mississippi

Bright, sunny and warm today!

Mandy: So while walking along I found something that wasn’t there before.

Mandy: A speed bump…okay, so I am a retired racing Greyhound, but I haven’t been going that fast!

5 mph is all that is allowed here.  It feels like forever getting through the park to the road as we are nearly all the way to the back of the park. We don’t even drive down this road, but others do – mostly in golf carts.  It seems nearly everyone out here has a golf cart. We think walking is a much better way to get around.

The park isn’t all that large.  I’m pretty sure most of the golf carts go over 5 mph.

We think most people out here are older folks, retired probably. So many of them have elaborate gardens and take really good care of them.

When we are out on another walk Mandy and I will take photos to show some of the really nice ones.

Beautiful reflections in the water. You can tell where the cove gives way to the traveling water of the river. The constantly moving river looks so much clearer than the water of the cove. When you are watching the river it moves along at different rates depending on what is going on, and the cove always seems to be standing still. Though I know there is movement in both it doesn’t look like it.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

House – July 30th


They have the roof on and cleaned up, wrapping the outside is done. Windows in.


Below is inside the garage, have the box in and have the inspection board in place…some of the drywall.  Front door and garage access door to the house are leaning in the garage. Not in yet. Floor not yet poured.  Elec. walk through is early tomorrow morning where we can get outlets assigned to where we need them.


Getting some of the insulation in.

It has suddenly been coming along quickly after a long wait to get going. No doubt it will slow down some once the drywall goes in and the different trades need to get in and ‘do their thing’. We most likely still have about 3 more months, or there bouts, to be able to close and move in.
