luggage, paint, and a full moon.

Good morning.I've just returned from another nice walk. Another beautiful morning.   :-)
Here's a few pics I took over the last 3 days of a full moon. You'll probably want to click the pic to see it better.
These first two pics have the moon just above the Spring Mountains, which are a ways west of our community.

The above pic was taken near the golf course.
And this last pic was taken just around the corner from our house.
We finally found a new piece of luggage that will work for us....
It's a duffel bag on wheels.
It has a handle that pulls out of a zippered compartment for ease of hauling. It's not exactly what we wanted, but it's smaller than our big suitcase and larger than our carry-ons, so should work good for us. And best of all?  We looked at Target, Walmart, Kohl's, Stein Mart, T.J. Maxx, and Ross. But we finally found it at K-Mart! I even looked online at Amazon and E-Bay, but K-Mart had the best price and the size we wanted.
And a couple of days ago, a man came to our house soliciting house painting. His company was painting a house down the street, and of course, trying to drum up more business. We kinda have been thinking of repainting, because the house is 11 years old and the paint has faded quite a bit. We have been noticing over the last couple of years quite a few homes in our community have been repainted, and you can certainly notice the difference. I think we should wait a few more years, but Craig thinks we should do it while we still have some money.  So, I've done some research and this company has done dozens of homes in our community and has gotten excellent reviews. And the price is in line with what others paid.  So I think we'll probably go in that direction soon.
Okay, I think that's all for now.
