Visit for Easter - Big Tree - Going Away Party

Auburndale, FL (Hi 82  Lo 66)

Sunday was Easter. We got a call from a dear friend that babysat our kids. We met Andrea and Rich for lunch in Brandon. We haven't seen them in years and it was so good to meet up. I love it when people have vacations in Florida. We've stayed friends for all these years and she's like a sister to me. Thank you for getting in contact with us.  (Click on the pictures to enlarge).
Andrea and Rich

We went to our favorite restaurant. Fords Garage, we have one in Lakeland

Tuesday we heard a loud noise, but couldn't figure it out what it was till I went to shuffleboard. The big tree across from the clubhouse was being taken down and the noise was the tree shredder. We watched how they took down the tree. A guy was hanging from a crane and ball going back and forth between truck and tree cutting down branches then putting the ball/chain around the branch. He's in a yellow vest.

Thursday I went to the hospice where I volunteer for a going away party for the volunteer coordinator. She's moving to Colorado. We had 33 people there and it was a great time. I met several more volunteers. We don't see each other because we have different days and hours of working.

George and Cody are from our community.

Brenda, Diane, Mary Ann (coordinator) and Dee   The gals and I are  from Lake Juliana Landings.

A carry in luncheon. The dessert table.

The food table. We had a mighty good lunch.

It was a total surprise.

Some other activity.  My latest crocheted items are angels and cowboy boots and hat. 

Our turtles are sunning themselves and the alligator is to the left of them. They don't bother each other and they all head for the culvert when they see people. Lots of alligators along the side of the lake. It's mating season.
