Society 6

Monday, January 27, 2014


I will call this my first official day of retirement since it would be the next day I would work. Snowing like crazy so I guess not much will get done today. I think my plan will be to start packing the items that will be transported to the coach and start a bag for good will and maybe a little sewing and on line shopping.

The name "Serenity"

Serenity (Firefly vessel) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Serenity Serenity is a fictional spaceship that appears in Joss Whedon's Firefly television series and related works. Set in the 26th century, the series follows the nine-person crew of the Firefly-class vessel, a small transport ship, as they earn a living through various legal and illegal means. The ship is the main setting; it appears in all fourteen episodes, the film, and all of the published comics. The ship was designed by director Joss Whedon, production designer Carey Meyer, and visual effects supervisor Loni Peristere. The collaboration led to more consistency between the live-action and digital effects representations of Serenity than is usual in science-fiction works. Two contiguous sets were built, between them containing the entirety of the ship's interior, which provided several advantages to the cast and crew during filming. The digital model of the ship was created by Zoic Studios; they also developed methods to digitally replicate live-action filming techniques, a first for television. These allowed digital renderings of the ship to blend in with the documentary/found-footage filming style of the live-action scenes. Serenity is described by Whedon as the "tenth character" of the series.[1] Some reviews compare the ship to the Millennium Falcon in the Star Wars franchise. She has made cameo appearances in the Battlestar Galactica miniseries and the Star Wars: Evasive Action webcomic.

Serenity is still not ready, but it's official I am retired!

Additional repairs needed on the RV still waiting on the estimate! Guess that's what you get when the RV is used. We just want to make sure everything is right before we begin our journey.

Still in limbo!

Serenity is still in the shop at transwest. Hurricane heating has been repaired but they are still waiting on the parts to fix muffler. It's a good thing we will not be starting our full time RVing adventure until the end of March because there is still a lot to do. I have two more shifts to work until I am officially retired so at this point I am just counting the hours. After a couple of years of night shift it will probably take a while to get back to normal.
