I guess you’d like to know who’s writing this blog and what we look like. Okay, maybe only some of you would like to know.
This is the Pilot and me. Bill & Vickie. Yup, we’re pretty happy about our well thought out decision to leave the RV lifestyle and move back into a sticks and bricks home. It seemed to be the right time in our lives to make that change.
In the previous “About Us” we only had one dog. We realized that our hearts were big enough to love two dogs and that’s when Tank came into our lives. Bella, our rescued Golden Retriever, is now 8 years old and has arthritis in her knees. She’s one of the many reasons for our decision to move back into a home so that she doesn’t have to do the steep steps of our RV.
Tank is our 1 year old Cock-A-Poo who is imbued with boundless energy. He also has a profusion of love that just radiates from him. He makes us laugh and he loves to play with Bella. He’s also very protective of her and seems to know that she has difficulty with her legs. So, between Tank, the Pilot and me…we’ve got Bella covered in love and attention.
Currently, we are going through many transitions and changes to make our lives easier as we try on this Retirement hat.
We also have a residential and commercial inspection business that we used to run from our previous home and then later while traveling in our RV. The Pilot started the business after he retired from 40 years of flying…the last 16 with Continental Airlines. The Pilot grew up helping his Dad build homes and decided to use that knowledge and inspect houses. He likens it to inspecting a plane before every take off. We have three wonderful inspectors who work for us and we manage the administrative end.
I also write and, of course, have a dream novel going at the same time. Doesn’t everyone? I love writing about people and everyday experiences of meeting them and talking with them. It’s one of the ways I keep extending my education.
Bella loves writing about food. And, then more food. So, you’ll see recipes listed in the categories. I also feature guest bloggers who want to share their recipes and skills in cooking certain foods. If you’d like to join us, just contact me and we’ll work out the details.
It’s been two years since we sold our other home and traveled to different parts of the country. We have absolutely no regrets regarding that decision but now we’re ready to transition back into a home.
