Zephyrhills, Florida (high 81, low 62)
On Sunday morning, we went to the gym, and after a trip home to clean up, we went to visit our friends Rhonda and William. Rhonda and I worked together at USAA Insurance and have tried to keep in touch through the years.
Rhonda, who might be considered a little “tech challenged” had gotten a new camera for Christmas. She couldn’t get it to work, and wondered if it might be defective, so she wanted me to look at it. It took me a minute to realize it was a camera that had a detachable lens and as soon as I put the lens on, it worked just fine. We all got a good laugh at Rhonda’s expense!
We had a wonderful dinner of ham, squash casserole, Cole slaw, sweet potatoes, and rolls. We had a nice afternoon and enjoyed visiting with them again. Thanks guys!
We came home and continued watching the tv series, Band of Brothers. I didn’t think I would like it, but it’s actually a very good series with a lot of history. There is a lot of shooting in the movie (imagine that) and it appears that the shooting makes Baxter crazy. With the surround sound, you feel like bullets are buzzing around the motor home. I guess Baxter notices too, because he gets the crazies every time we play that movie.
We were surprised to hear the Daytona race was delayed due to rain. We had a cloudy day with about two minutes of rain in the morning, but nothing severe, or long lasting. I guess it must have rained pretty hard in Daytona. We have a 50% chance of rain today again, so it may be delayed again today.
I’ve been hearing reports of gas being $6.00 a gallon here in Florida. I understand there are two stations near Disney World that are gouging tourists at that price, but the state average is $3.70 a gallon. It may very well be near that by the summer, but for now it’s only $3.70. Of course, diesel is over $4.00.
The following are some memories from our last visit to the Keys.
How about Picasa’s new feature? It makes for an interesting picture, doesn’t it?
Jeanne’s post reminded me of the beautiful sunsets in the Keys….can’t wait to get back.
I love to see the sun appear to melt into the ocean.
