Thankful Wednesday

Welcome on this Wednesday morning to our newest Followers:
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Please take a minute and click on their names to view their blogs which I think you will find very interesting!

We were back at it on Monday morning at the Habitat for Humanity build at Red Mill.  This time of the year helps me refocus on the things I am most thankful for and one of them is the men and women at Habitat.

Here Joe is observing Tom, Paul and Bill trying to square up a wall that was a little off.
Here Kathy is putting up some styrofoam channels to hold some roof insulation.  Pam was adjusting the chop saw for some baseboard work.
It is a wonderful thing to marry a woman who love the smell of sawdust and hear the sound of power tools in her hands.  I am especially thankful for her (and her birthday today).  
We only take a lunch break during the day and Kathy and Pam are enjoying it.
Here Stephen and Bill are hanging a door.  
Here are more of the group (Sharron, the Executive Director of Habitat, Southhampton Roads; Tom, Karen, Pam and Joe).

I am also thankful to fellow RVers Harold and Linda Payne of  They were a primary source of information as we learned about the RV lifestyle.  Yesterday on Facebook I saw that Linda left a note that they were going to be interviewed on a radio show in Connecticut: Life Changes with Mariette
It was an interesting 30 minutes and Howard and Linda did a good job.  Not easy trying to explain why they left their corporate high paying jobs to live in a 5th wheel.  But they did and gave a fascinating picture of their lifestyle and the places they have been in the last five years.

Thanks again for viewing.  This will wrap up the latest edition the Roadrunner Chronicles and I leave you with another question:  
What are you thankful for this Wednesday?


  1. Hi Pam,
    I do understand! There is a large group of retired church members from our denomination, all they do is travel the country building new churches. Living out of their R.V.'s. The are all retired contractors of some sort and do this on a volunteer basis. Our church was built by them. What an amazing lifestyle choice! So I get it, I think what your doing is wonderful!
    Love Di ♥
