A Different Kind of Day

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 82 Lo 56 -- We almost had a record high temperature today, missed it by one degree. It was a cool start but once the sun came up it didn't take long to warm up.

We had nothing planned or scheduled today, but we found plenty to do. Besides our morning routine, Jim went to Walmart to pick up some contact lenses he ordered. He checked our mailbox on the way home and we had a box from One advantage of being in one place for a few months is we have an address to have mail order items shipped to. We'll miss that when we leave.

At 1:00 we went to Bible study. There were only five of us today. The Red Hat group, sixty women, went on a bus trip to St. Augustine for a few days of fun. After the class Jim and I played some pool. It's been awhile since we last played and we could sure tell it. We played a couple games then I stayed and practiced some by myself while Jim went back to the RV.

When I got back to the RV Jim taught me how to play Gin Rummy. I've learned a lot about cards since we've been here so I'm more comfortable learning new games. This is one that the two of us can play together.

Jim grilled our dinner then we went to play shuffleboard with Jon and Kathleen. They went sightseeing to Tarpon Springs yesterday and we wanted to hear all about it. That's on our list of places to see next winter. When it got too dark to play we walked with Jon and Kathleen to their park model and sat and talked for awhile, then came home for the rest of the evening. Another typical day in paradise. :)

cards was a staple in my house growing up. gin rummy, canasta, spades, pinocle.
can be fun, but sometimes my family was all so competitive that it turned a little too serious..especially when i'd lose and have to do my brothers chores for a week , hey he is 7 years older...i just felt good that I could hold my own
