We have been at our friends house in the Shenandoah Valley now for four days and only planned on staying a few days or so but this weather is anything but inviting for us to pack it all up and leave. There was blue sky when we got here and the view out back was wonderful (see photo above). It has been cold and rainy since then however. Today should hopefully be the last day of rain in the area and it supposed to warm up tomorrow.
Our plans for now are to head over to Washington DC tomorrow and walk around the city and bask in the sunshine. We will see if the weather gods permit it. Then we will either head down near Richmond and stay at Pocahontas State Park or drive over to our friends other house in Roanoke and stay a couple of days there.
Today will have us hiding out in the house in the rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley and researching what we do in DC and whether or not the route to Roanoke is possible for us to get our motorhome there.
Today is also the day in which I plan to get my first haircut since we retired… I know this may sound odd to many of you but when I retired back in March I decided that I wouldn’t get a haircut for six months since I always hated going to get a haircut when I was a working stiff. Then I had the idea that I would donate my hair to locks of love a great organization that helps kids with cancer. However, after reading in detail on their web site they they only take hair that is 10 inches in length I decided I couldn’t wait till it grew that long so today is the day to get the all the hairs cut… man, I know it is going to feel much better after I get it done.
Today is also a special day as 36 years ago today I married my lovely bride Sharon. Yes I let her steal me from the cradle but we were in love so against all odds of marrying early we took our chances and 36 years ago from today we were married in San Antonio Texas. Man have we come a long ways from those days….
So other than celebrating our anniversary quietly we will be just enjoying our friend here in the valley… The DC anniversary trip will be tomorrow.
