Sister Visiting - Basketball

Auburndale, Fl  (Hi 91  Lo  75)

This week started out with a visit from my sister, Doris. She's back in Florida from Missouri for five weeks and stopped on her way to her place in Okeechobee. Doris has a dog named Carley, part Border Collie and German Shepherd. (Click on the pictures to enlarge).

Walking the dog and dodging rain and storms was part of the visit. It rains/storms everyday. Jim also walked Carley, in the rain. Doris left on Wednesday morning. I'll be going to her place in a couple weeks.

 I crocheted most of the time if I wasn't playing games. I also made a fish in a bowl that's trending for crafts.

Friday evening we went to a meet and greet with Mary from the Lakeland Magic basketball team. Lakeland Magic is the G-league of the Orlando Magic basketball team. Mary takes care of season ticket holders and we bought them again this year. She's going to help get us extra tickets when the kids come to visit. We stayed a few minutes talking to her then went to Andrea's restaurant for dinner. We were home in time to see Jim's Cardinal baseball game on TV.

It's great seeing so many women in the higher ranks of sports.

A lake across I 4 had a great view of balloons going in the air. Tammy that lives in the RV park took this picture.

Jim and Dee,
I was going through my old business cards and came across yours! I have very much enjoyed reading about your travels and am so happy to see you've succeeded in your dreams of seeing all the contiguous 48!! I have often wondered how you were doing and am glad to hear and see how well life is going for you :) I retired myself in June of 2015 and have been so very happy myself! I just wanted to say hello and its great to see you guys so deserve it!!
All the best,
Karl Smith (your former dentist!)
