Adelaide Shores Car Show

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 82 Lo 57 -- We haven’t done a whole lot as far as park activities, just the normal shuffleboard and card playing. But Sunday was the Adelaide Shores Antique Class Car Show. They close off the entire block around the clubhouse for all the beautiful cars. This year it was cloudy with occasional misty rain so there weren’t as many cars as usual.

People parked up and down the streets of the park and it was very well organized. It was fun walking around seeing the cars of our early years, and even those a lot older than us. There was something for everyone. (Click on the pictures to enlarge)












Late in the day we were treated to this beautiful rainbow.

Monday I played a new game with about 30 other people. It’s a dice game called Bunko. You move from table to table if you win. There's four people in a group and your partner is diagonal.

Today I remembered to take some photos at handbell choir practice at the church. There’s 10 of us, and I play the big bells pictured to the right. I’m doing well in keeping up with everyone, and since I'm a beginner I get some private instruction with Evelyn, the director, after practice.


Tomorrow is Jim’s fun day. He’ll be preparing for his colonoscopy on Thursday. We’ll do another blog in three days and tell you how that turned out. I'm sure everyone will want to know all the details... NOT!   :)

My sympathies go out to Jim. Is he sure he needs that done? I would question it. That probe has already been up someone's a**.

I like the old cars too. The ones from the 50's & 60's were more comfortable than those of today.

Love the old cars but that's an expensive hobby. Good for Jim. Been there, done that.
