Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Snow Birds

I like winter scenery

But, I can't wait to
 get out of this icebox!!!
* * * * *

I wanna be a SnowBird

I've lived in the Chicago area
my entire life and am looking forward
to spending a winter
on the beach
or in the desert


  1. Cool photo! Did you take it? I grew up in Chicago, also, and have tried to avoid cold temperatures since my retirement. I'm not always successful, however. :( 23* here in Texas this morning! Ugh!

  3. hi Teri..found your blog through everyone's favourite 'blogfather'..Al Bayfield..going to join along in your journey to Fulltiming!!!

  4. Hi Teri, I also found your blog through Al's blog. :) We are also future fulltimers. I think you will find there is quite a community of RV bloggers here.

    I completely understand your post today! I live in upstate NY and was trying yesterday to appreciate the wintery scenery - as I was out driving in it!!

  5. Hi Teri. That’s a terrific photo! While your picture makes me think of our home in northern New York State, it also reminds me that I do not miss the snow.


  6. Indeed a nice winter photo with great detail right from the foregrounds twigs poking through the snow to the distant branches in the background tree lines. Am guessing a tri-pod mounted photo with possibly a large format camera.

  7. Where the Heck in Chicago do you live?..We are here in the boonies of Sandwich, IL..about 60 miles Southwest..and stuck in the same damn ice box!!!


Hi, I welcome your thoughts and comments.
