out of the blue
what is on my mind and around me
When you are in Atlantic City, one of their public transportation within the city is called Jitney. It's smaller than a passengers bus and it goes all around the city. It's not the size that caught my attention but it's name Jitney because in Manila, they also have this means of transportation in the city but it is called Jeepney. The latter is a bit smaller with a lot of festive colors and loud music. I don't have a photo of it right now but here is AC's Jitney.
We were going to Pennsylvania, to go to Hershey Park for a four day vacation with the family. It is only a 4 hour drive from Jersey. I took this picture as we were approaching Pennsylvania and NJ border. The roads are clear with no traffic at all. it was a Monday so everybody was back to work I guess. It was a perfect day to be on the road.
Now, we are all happy to see each other. He has one kid already in college and my daughter now a 4th grader. The kids both play tennis. The US Open was the perfect place to reunite our families together. I will post pictures soon.
This famous unisphere is a landmark to where the tennis U.S. Open is held every year. It is located at the Corona Park in Flushing Meadows, Queens, NY. You pass right next to this unisphere as you enter the U.S. Open grounds from the Corona Park. If you took the train or subway going to the Tennis Center, the sphere is on the other side.
I am you a picture I took when we watched the us open last week. So lucky, I got it with nobody else around it.
Last January 1st, one of my co-workers, who was our sales person here at our branch, went on a semi-retirement. It was a two year process until they finally decided to move to Florida. They made several trips there finding new homes for sale Jensen Beach FL and several other towns close to the beach. Actually, they were just looking for an upgrade to their small condominium where they have been staying during their short trips. A bigger place is needed for the retirement home.
So what is going to happen with their house in New Jersey? For now, it is empty. It is not a full retirement yet for Rix (that’s what the term they want to use, for now). When a customer would ask about his whereabouts, he instructed us to tell them that he is on extended vacation. He wants that when the weather gets warmer, he is coming back to work part time then the final relocation will happen this coming winter. I hope, they would be able to sell their New Jersey home by that time. This year is the transition period.
In four weeks, they are coming back here. Rix was even here two weeks ago for our trade show. He was invited by my boss to come here to attend the two day show. The semi-retirement set up is doing him good. We saw in his face he was happy and ready to be a full time Florida resident.
