Zephyrhills, Fl - (high 82, low 57)
We haven't been doing much interesting or fun lately so we decided it was time we got busy and went kayaking.
Today, the plan is to head up to the Weeki Wachee River State Park, and do some paddling. It’s another of our favorite Florida rivers. Pictures coming.
We have been talking to our neighbor, Pat. She is a licensed massage therapist . She does chair massages for $7 or a full hour massage for $35. We are going to get a massage before we leave this winter. She’s quite an amazing person.
To look at her, you’d never know what a bundle of energy she is. She’s our age (or older) and has a problem with her hip so she walks with a limp.
Don’t let her fool you. Last week-end, she went on a 35 mile bicycle ride both days!
She told us stories about long bicycle/camping trips where she and a group went for hundreds of miles…in the mountains! She said the most she’s ever ridden in a day was 90 miles! I couldn’t even sit on an electric bike for 90 miles.
She’s evidently in excellent shape and she mentioned a local gym she recently joined. You can join on a month to month basis. Al and I felt guilty after hearing about her exploits, so we joined the gym. It’s $64 each and we get a membership for 2 months. I hope we will use it. Our history with gym memberships is not good.
Yesterday was spent getting new tires on the truck. A necessary evil.
We did manage to sell our Roadmaster Brake Buddy that we had bought used and never even hooked up. We decided to get rid of some of these things while the snowbirds are here. We also have a portable ice-maker, small freezer and 30 amp surge guard for sale on Craig's list.
Our new patio chairs arrived yesterday and I think we’re going to really like them. It turns out they had them at the local Camping World store, but they were hiding in a back corner and boxed up, so we never noticed them.
Our picture of the day. This picture is of me, my Dad and Mom. It must have been taken in the 50’s. I came across it at Mom’s house and didn’t recall ever seeing it. I snapped a picture of it with my camera…easier than scanning. Evidently I liked sunglasses way back then!
