Rainy Day

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 75 Lo 65 -- We had a nice rain most of the morning. No downpours, just a steady rain. We need it, so no complaints here. Jim went with me to my chiropractor appointment. I'm going the next three days to get a couple vertebrae into alignment.

On the way back home we stopped at a little restaurant that some of our friends recommended. It's called Wild Turkey Tavern, a little hole-in-the-wall place in Sebring, and they have the funniest menu we've ever seen. They explain there's one grill, one waitress, and one cook, which equals you're going to wait. The whole menu has funny quips, and we were really entertained while waiting for our food.

The ceiling is loaded with signs.









There's two pool tables and before we left several came in to play in a tournament. The kind of players who have their own sticks.











The food was really good. I had a bratwurst and Jim had a burger. Now we have another place to go when we want some atmosphere.

We stopped for some groceries on the way home and I found these strawberries. They're huge!










The rain was gone by evening, so I walked my mile. This time I borrowed Jim's iPod and listened to a podcast of "Stuff You Should Know." It's two guys who talk about all kinds of subjects (one subject per episode). They're the same guys who do the "How Stuff Works" website. They're very good, and also very informative. Jim downloaded a whole bunch of episodes so I'll be borrowing his iPod when I walk.

I'm now working on the second afghan and will get it done before Friday so I can turn them both in to the Happy Hookers group for donating to the Linus Project. It was a busy day and more to come to this week.

I found this website that might be of interest to anyone that crochets or knits and would like to contribute. Click here

Only sunshine here - lots of it. I love finding those hidden little gems like that restaurant.
