Auto Tag - 08/19/19

19 August 2019 | Jacksonville, Florida
Woke up around 8. We both slept well. Then showered and dressed. Jim, Mark and I headed out for a walk. There was a good breeze to keep us from sweating this morning. Temperatures reached upper 80's today. Enjoyed breakfast before driving to the DMV to get our license tag for our new Jeep. Thankfully, Jim, made us an appointment, so we didn't wait very long at all. There were several others complaining about their long wait. I didn't think there were that many people waiting. We had an excellent person to work with. It took about half an hour to process our request. We also paid for the TR6 tag which was owing. John also noticed that Mark's license did not have the star beside the number which means that Mark will have to update it when it get back to Jax. We made a stop at Walmart for a few things. Then we met Jim & Deb at the Outback restaurant for lunch. I noticed some pictures on the wall that reminded me of our drive thru the Australian Outback. Lunch was very good.
Mark and Jim installed the new tag on the Jeep. Then we headed to our storage units in separate areas. Mark remembered the pass codes. He also took some Home Defense to spray inside both units. No sign of bugs, which was excellent. In-between, we took a short drive to our house. Everything looked great. There wasn't anyone around. It was bittersweet to see our home after being away for so long. Our renters will be moving out at the end of this month. The clouds were darkening in the sky and it looked like it would rain at any time. It started raining by the time we got back to Jim & Deb's street. We stopped at Publix and Mark was able to find his Digestive Advantage. Picked up a few groceries, plus an umbrella. Enjoyed some down time. Watched some tv, catching up on several Below Deck episodes. Helped Deb make some delicious pizzas for dinner. Wrapping up our first day back in Jacksonville. We will only be here for a few days, before driving back up to New York state. Thanks for your emails and messages. Enjoy your day!

We are both computer folks that were live aboard cruisers back in the 90s. We settled in Jacksonville Florida after escaping the great white north and cruising the Bahamas, T&C, DR and points south down to Trinidad. [...]
Extra: Charabia is a French slang word for nonsense or gibberish. It derives from Arabic "sharab" which means alcohol.When you drink (too much) alcohol, you start talking Charabia. The original owners named her and Mark liked the name so it stuck.
