June 24-26, 2018, Spring Hill, FL-
This is a photo-less, nearly driving-free post. I spent Sunday night in Ocala, a good stopping place en-route to/from the Nature Coast and points further down Florida’s mid-Gulf region. Other than being tailgated around a church parking lot, by an older man who demanded to know what I was doing there, Ocala was a friendly enough place.
I got to my in-laws’ house, in Spring Hill, around 10:30. Fortunately, W was home and Mother was up and dressed. These three days were largely spent watching old movies (TCM) and coddling the two dogs.
I did get a couple of dips in the salubrious pool, with Bella (younger dog) happily joining in the splashing and laps. Her more cautious “older brother” was content to lay around and watch us.
The most momentous thing that happened was that I bought this laptop, its mouse and case. The device is lighter weight than the War Horse was, and thus easier to tote around. Nevertheless, I found myself missing the Lenovo and hoping it is at least being used for peaceful purposes, if it is even still running.
The weather was a bit on the tortuous side, so none of us spent much time outdoors. W went to visit her horses, but unlike in December, I did not join her. AC becomes addicting. We took all of our meals at home. Mother appreciated that part.
It’s been a peaceful break from the road. I will head out tomorrow again, with my goal being the middle of South Carolina, by evening.
