Jim's Day Out

(Wauchula, FL) - I didn't get up till real late. It was one of those days, I rolled over thinking I'd get up in a minute and fell back to sleep.

The Hardee County Library is about two miles from us, and they said if we bring proof that we're living in the area for the winter we can get a library card.  Jim got the office lady to write out a statement for him and he went today to get his card and spend some time in the library.  He's a reader, so he plans to go about once a week, mainly to read the magazines that he likes.  While he was gone I cleaned the RV, read a bunch of blogs, and played some computer games.  I also walked a lap around the park.

When Jim got home we went to the shuffleboard courts for the 2pm gathering.  About 4-6 people show up at 10am and 2pm everyday to play for a couple of hours.  I never dreamed you could get sore playing such a low key game.  The back of my legs hurt after a couple hours playing, and even Jim felt it in his calves.  Kinda pathetic, huh?

It was perfect day... temperature 82, some puffy clouds, a warm sun, and a very nice breeze.  Typical Florida winter weather.

Not a real exciting day to report, but that's the way it is when you're retired.  We have a day trip planned for tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Now that I think about it you probably do use a lot of muscles playing shuffleboard. Don't overdo it!

Sounds like a pretty nice day to me!

You have to stop sending those funny links to Marti, she laughed so hard I was afraid she'd fall off the couch and hurt herself! ;c)

Be careful on that shuffleboard court, I've heard the games can get ugly and the bets can bankrupt you...

Beats even a good day at work.
