2018 February 27 Tuesday in Liberty Hill Texas
It was 61 degrees when we got up this morning and very foggy.
We had a surprise. No electricity (other than house battery) and no water. That means that the power was out at our Campground. The campground’s water comes from a well. No electricity means no pump which in turn means no water to the campers.
So we decided to go in to IHOP and have free pancakes today it’s Pancake Day.
Oh did I mention the fog? There’s a lot of fog this morning too. It was actually sprinkling a little as we left home and it slowly went down to a mist. However, we were driving in some heavy fog on the way into Cedar See Park.
After we were done at IHOP we went across the street to Costco. However they were not open at 9:30. We went back after lunch.
We arrived at the senior center at about quarter to ten and the usual gang were already there.
They were playing Rummikub again. Once again, we were shut out of their game because it is a four player only game. Ella and I opened the second Rummikub game and started playing. After we finished the first game, Ted joined us. They were already serving us lunch (Italian sausage in a tomatoes sauce with cheese and a side of squash) as we finished playing.
After lunch we returned to Costco for some health and beauty items. I also renewed our membership while we were there.
It was 68° by 1:30 but was still a hazy, misty, fog. Sometimes the fog can make for beautiful photographs. Not today though it just left the sky the color of dry concrete.
When we arrived home the electricity had been restored and we once again had running water. That’s a good thing.
Do you ever just stop, look around, and thank God for your life? That’s the mode I’m in right now. I’m sitting in my recliner holding hands with the woman I love. Our eternal life is secure, we get to spend time with friends nearly every day.. And as I’m fond of saying, “For all that’s wrong with us, we’re in good shape.” We don’t have a lot but we have enough.
So, imagine my surprise when i learned that we are homeless.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) use the following: A homeless individual is defined in section 330(h)(5)(A individual who has a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings, including a car, park, abandoned building, bus or train station, airport, or camping ground;
One of the other parts of the HHS definition includes living in an RV.
I accept that we are “houseless” but we are certainly not homeless in our own minds.
How about you other full-time RVers? Do you see yourself as homeless?
We did have some beautiful sunset photos tonight.
