Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Russ and I on the first Monday after arriving in Cleveland went for a drive west on Lake Erie’s shore.  Saw gorgeous houses with boat docks and enjoyed the old old buildings, this area actually got white people in the 1700’s.  But that was not the big excitement.  When we stopped at a park on the lake, I met two men who had just come from a car show a few miles west of us.  Only 1954-1956 crown victoria and a few other fords of the era, were in this club which meets in different states each year.  I surprised Russ and drove him to it and he was one happy man back in his teen years of cars that he fixed up.  He met people who spent up to $50,000 fixing these cars up.  One Man was a farmer and spent years fixing his in the barn.

    Not to quibble but those look like 1955 or 1956 Ford/Mercurys. Looks like fun in any case.

    • I forgot to edit and to reply about my mistakes on the car years. Typical- I am a history major and knew the war years did not produce the cars. Changed it today sitting here in New York state next to a corn field. Kristi

    Hi, You must mean 1952-56. No cars were manufactured from 42-46 because of the war. Anyway, It looks like it was fun!

    Sorry I didn’t get a reponse off while you were with Gae. I’m glad things are better between her and Krista. Does she have other friends she hangs out with? I’m sure she really enjoyed the week she had with you guys.

    I am redecorating. I painted my living room and bought 3 lipstick red art deco type small chairs. In a couple of weeks I’m going to have a movie night! I’m waiting for Manny to get back to help me move furniture and paint the bedroom. Dad’s estate matters are almost settled. There always seems to be one more little thing that need to be done. Are you watching any of the Olympics? I’m enjoying them alot this time around.

    Tell Russ that I just finished the fifth book in the Game of Thrones series. I hasn’t let up! There has to be a sixth, because the story is not yet over.

    Love ya, Nancy
