The Third Anniversary Of My Great Homeless Adventure

Always try to put a positive spin, no?

Ok...thoughts on Texas.
You know that Sun Guy who is always trying to make people eat breakfast? Well, the sun here feels like he's living next door! So direct on one's person, annoying me with a Jimmy Dean Egg Sandwich.

Been hitting temps of 107. Heat is ok with me....even at that level....but in The Sovereign Conversion Van Of Wonders, that is minus the ability to offer up Air Conditioning, well, it's sweltering!

As with many southern states I have driven through, Texas allows beer sales pretty much everywhere, most notably, at gas stations. It seems that more stations here also sell hard liquor. It makes getting your DUI/DWI much easier since you can do so with a full tank of gas. Plenty of miles to be swerving and stuff.

Ok...3 years ago today I lost my home. I made a number of attempts to take that situation as an opportunity to change my life and relocate. as my more faithful readers have learned there were a number of mis-steps and medical issues along the way.


I moved along, finally. And here I am in The Lone Star State.

I have already found gainful employment. I go full bore come Monday and expect a check inside of 2 weeks. Turns out, the owner of said company and her husband are big Beck fans, which certainly doesn't hurt anything. We'll see how it all goes.

I am staying with my nephew and his family in Flower Mound, but that's only until Monday morning. After that...who knows. Sunday he and I are going to finally get the van back in order so I can sleep in there. I am looking into campgrounds/RV parks. As long as I have electric, I can survive. If it has WiFi, I can stay in touch.

It's odd...and a bit unsettling. I am on the verge of moving along, but so many ducks are out of the row. I hope something comes along that can sustain me until the first check arrives...but odds of that happening are slight. If anyone can help, feel free to let me know.

In the meantime...keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Until next time....
