Visitors - Basketball - Fashion Show - Ooopsy - Mats - New Furniture

Auburndale, FL    Hi  72  Lo  57 -- I was another busy week. It keeps us alert on what day it is when there's so much going on.  The first of the week we had friends from North Carolina come to visit. We are all ham operators and the hamfest in Orlando was going on so we got to see our friends while they were in the area. We went to Kissimmee to Logans Steakhouse for dinner. Thanks everyone for taking the time for our yearly get together. (Click on the pictures to enlarge).

Monday morning  Jim's cousin Adele and her husband Dick came for the day and night to be with us on their way to Georgia.  We saw them in Maryland while we traveled and they've been to Avon park to see us while they were in Florida visiting other relatives. This picture was last year, I forgot to take one on this visit.

Saturday my sister, Doris, came from Okeechobee with four other gals from the park to go to Parksdale Farms for Strawberry shortcake.

After we left with full tummies, we headed to the International flea market in Auburndale. The place is huge and we didn't have time to see it all. That's for another girls day outing. Thanks for bringing the gals with you sis.

 Our grandson, Kendall, was in the Illinois State Jr. High basketball tournament and played Tuesday and Thursday night. We got to watch it live on YouTube. We took the YouTube feed and put it on our big TV. It was a little blurry but it was so fun watching. Our youngest son, Rick was watching from Chicago and Frank and Angie were at the game. It's great having the whole family texting about the game. It brought us altogether.

Frank, Kendall, Angie. Look at those smiles.

Tuesday was Valentine's day. A few of us from the community went to our sister Sun Community park Westside Ridge for a valentines fashion show. This was a different kind of fashion show. The participants had to get something from the thrift stores nearby and not spend over $15 for the whole outfit. It was so good and the gals and guys would come in with a strut to show off what they bought. The men were so cool with their ideas and they did so well.

There were several people involved. When the show was over they served us a great lunch of ham salad, tuna salad, potato salad and drink. For dessert, you had a choice or cookie or cupcake and ice cream. It was a great afternoon and we enjoyed it.

While I was gone Jim was running some errands and on the way home a woman side swiped him while changing lanes. The woman's insurance company accepted liability, and we have an appointment on Monday to drop off our car and pick up a rental car for the time it takes them to fix it. That was pretty fast service by the two insurance companies. Now we'll see how the repairs go.

Thursday was the weekly craft meeting. We're making grocery bag mats for the military and had a great group of gals at the session.

While we were working on mats a line dancing group came in for their weekly lesson. We were entertained with them learning steps.

When I got home Jim had picked up some new patio furniture we ordered last week.

It's SO comfortable.

See you next weekend.

SallyB - Lookup pipe furniture or PVC furniture in your area. We found ours at Palm Casual in Auburndale, FL.
