Moving out of Dallas

Well, I’ve somehow found myself back to this old computer after all my travels. Things have changes a lot since the last itme we spoke and I believe it’s time that I informed you. First, let me go on record as saying there will be no gun review for this day. This will be surely and solely an update.

First off, I called my friend and he agree to help me out with his Dallas Movers and they picked up me and my stuff and moved me from Fort Worth and worked with a realtor in Key West. He’s a good man and he’s helped me in times of strife before. But this particular instance was much needed.

You see there was a house fire and we lost everything. I lost my guns, and I feel like I lost my soul in that fire. The fire simply cleaned away anything I ever was or ever could be. But in the time that it took for me to realize that, I had found myself in a different city and a smaller room.

Things have been rocky between the missus and me since we moved, but ultimately we still love each other and will constantly workt to make our lives better. But besides that, nothing has really happened. Besides that, my eldest has

moved out to Fort Lauderdale to work with some mom group and in that time she has become quite popular or so I’m told.

Besides that, we’re hanging on you know. I’ve been trying to get myself back together and I feel like this blog might be the very thing we need to be able to scrap our things together and make everything get figured out again. If you guys have any questions about what need to be done or where I should go from here, let me know. I’d like to have someone to talk to.

More time with my family

The Elston Gunnn

Hello again. My name is Elston.

I’ve been spending a lot of time with my family recently. I’ve been wondering about life and all that, and I already am in the process of selling my home and moving back to Florida. I’ve been hanging with my niece and nephew, and they’re very much of the “Carpe Diem” Mentality. They’ve been having me try all sorts of stuff.

I recently got bubbly for the first time in several years when they suggested that I smoke some shisha from their hookah. At first, I thought they were just joking with me then they took me to their favorite smoke shop in Hollywood, and we bought some. I didn’t know what to think of at first, but I breathed it just like how I would smoke cigarettes during the war, but this came out tasting just like a Carolina peach. While the flavor alone was a delight I didn’t expect, the head high I received afterward is the stuff of dreams.

I’ve been working harder on claiming my life nowadays. I’ve spent so much time thinking about the world and the one that I’m leaving behind that I don’t want to be remembered as an agent of death. I want to inspire some lives with these old bones of mine. I want my family to know that I loved them and that everything is going to be okay because grandpa took care of it before passing.

I feel like I’m a dying generation, but I don’t know what my generation even stood for. People are so concerned with baby boomers and Gen-Xers that it’s as I’ve already passed but why do I have to live in this world without creating only taking away and I don’t want that to be the legacy that I leave behind.

For those of you too slow to figure it out. I did see the doctor, and he had some unfortunate news. I think I’ll be okay, but I’d rather be safe and get all my ducks in a row and square away my family. So that’s what’s going on with me. I’m enjoying my life, and I hope that I can get back to you folks some day. But until then I’ll be signing off early today, I think I’ll watch the sunrise.

Water and Fire

Hello again, it is me, Elston, welcome to my blog. I am going to start this week off with a little bit of a cozy story. I did not have power for a little bit because I’m here with the little ones down in Florida trying to help out on account of Matthew coming in and blowing their house over like a couple of little pigs. So I am down here to help them rebuild.

However, similar to the harsh winds of Matthew, I am here to regale you with a story or two of my own. A story of what it was like to be a daddy for the first time and how the modern tragedy surrounds the harm of others you love and not the wellbeing of your personal safety.

I am of course talking about keeping your kids Safe. You see there was a house fire in the first home that we had been a part of when we were younger. Waking up in the middle of the night to screams and the smell of burning meat only to find out that your refrigerator, despite being made of stainless steel is not fireproof.

My kids had all gotten up and ran to see us, and I had to grab them and jump out the window. I landed on the soft grass below before climbing back up to the second story where our apartment was to grab the doggy. You see the missus was working a night shift that night as a nurse and couldn’t be there on account of all the sick people who were present.

This also wasn’t necessarily the period of surveillance cameras so nobody will ever no if this was done by foul play or if it was purely an accident. Moreover, looking back on this time, it still doesn’t seem like it matters. However, when I am lying in bed and the winds are roaring outside our window, and I am holding my two grandkids on my chest and letting them know it is going to be okay. I want you all to know, you dear readers, that everything will be okay.

If there’s anything I have learned from my time on this Earth it is that when things get tough, you have to get you with it. Which isn’t hard for most people, but the difficult part is knowing when to be tough and knowing when to be tender. Moreover, sometimes the lines are not as clear as they should be, but that would not make life hard wouldn’t it? Being hard and living are part of the same coin my friends. Stay easy, regular content the rest of this week.

The Best Time

the-best-time

Miami has a population of over 5 million people with its metro area being ranked as the eighth most populated area in the States which does not paint the picture of the best getaway spot or the ideal vacation location for unwinding or for the occasionally much needed R&R. However, Royal Stays Miami have done their very best to provide the perfect haven right in the middle of such bustle, providing a home away from home with all the trappings and luxuries of a hotel and the chance to enjoy the beauty of Miami beaches while still enjoying your privacy and comfort.

Miami had been inhabited by indigenous cultures for thousands of years which might be one of the reasons it has such a strong and varied sense of culture borrowing from the indigenous and later settlers. For instance, its music scene includes features from Cuba, Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, Caribbean and the Dominican as well as being home to a vibrant and dynamic dance and techno music scene and the host to the biggest dance event in the world, the Winter Music Conference. For those who love music this is the place to be. Music however, is not the only thing in Miami that holds something for everyone. One of the reasons, that this vibrant hub is so popular is its varied destinations that cater to different tastes from the Art Deco district for art lovers, trendy nightlife atmosphere for the young at heart, Coral Gables and its historic hideaways, family-owned shops that would melt even the most ornery holiday-goer, art festivals, auto racing and boat shows and the busiest cruise port in the world for those with sturdy sea legs. This larger than life city owes its existence to Julia Tuttle, adding another notch to its rich history by being the only major city in the States to have been conceived by a woman.

This is what Royal Stays Miami have tapped into with their Miami vacation rental with apartments in different buildings in Brickell and Miami Beach, all of which are fully furnished, with plenty of amenities from the apartments themselves to pools, Wi-Fi, concierge services and other complimentary services that cater to guests at both ends of the spectrum to give everyone the opportunity to reconnect with their loved ones in a positively-charged environment. With twelve properties in different areas from Ocean Drive to West Avenue, guests get to choose what part of Miami or Florida appeals to them and book an apartment closest to that. The properties include Four Seasons, Casa Grande, Pavilion, Courtyard, Mondrian, Conrad Hilton, Boutique 18, Netherland Apartments, Casa Gaby, Park SOBE apartments, Hispaniola House and L’etoile which range from a hundred dollars a night and upwards to about two hundred dollars and upwards a night. These prices are a steal for such a metropolitan and for the amazing scenes available to you in the city.

F or one who has moved away from the city to get back to a place that isn’t an eternal rat race,
