This day is always special for Nancy and myself,because this day is our anniversary,52 years we have been married. Time sure does fly by and waits on no one. We are going to have a quite as possible dinner out at the Sioux City Steak House. We haven't eaten here in quite awhile so this will be a nice time for us. After dinner we will come home and start making the cabbage rolls for tomorrow. Then once again I will eat and watch ballgames all day long.

After dinner we began sitting around and getting lazy so we decided we needed to get out to walk. We thought it would be good to go to Chestnut Park again. I sure go a surprise pulling out onto Little Road. There was hardly any traffic. Everyone must have wanted to spend the day indoors. As we were getting close to the park it started to rain,but we went on anyway. After a short time it did stop raining.
On the way back home we saw this beautiful rainbow. When we got back home we had coffee and home made pecan pie. After that we sat around the rest of the evening watching the tv. A good ending to a very good day.

Yesterday was spent doing the around the house things getting ready for Christmas. Taking some gifts for the neighbors. Cranking up the sound on the tv listens to the sounds of Christmas.
We listen to xm radio on the tv.
Today I will be eating and snacking while I watch games on the tv. Getting more full then I should and then wondering why I'm feeling so stuffed.

We did take a little time to go down to Green Key Beach. There were kids playing in the playground.
The wind was blowing pretty strong making the flags flap and snap in the breeze.
I always like to look at the gulf. Here is a small island out in the water. Also you can see one of 4 or 5 of the stilt houses out on the water. These houses have been there a long time and they do not allow anymore to be built in the water.

Yesterday evening I went to the Sweetbay market and bought a nice sirlion steak for the grill. Nancy prepared all the trimmings and the steak was grilled to perfection so the meal was a real treat which tasted great.

We walked all the way from one end to the other. It was a short distance on 3/4 mile all the way around. We like to come down to this place.

Another good day.

To night there is suppose to be a large meteor shower. I always enjoy seeing these.
The temps are still low for us here being 41 this morning. When is this place going to start feeling like Florida is suppose be? I don't know,don't ask me. Well it is still better than being up north with all the snow.
The sun is shining nice and bright so maybe it will warm up today. I will spend most of the day inside watching ballgames anyway.

The play was a 3 act play that lasted 2 1/2 hours. Here is a scene from the 40's with costume and snow falling. We expected it to snow but what we didn't know the snow fell on the audience also. It was such real snow that it started melting when it hit on us. The singing was a real treat.
After the play we stopped to eat at Golden Corral where I "pigged out" once again. This was a great day.

Now for the "Word of Life". We know that it is there and they put on musical "Sights and Sounds of Christmas". This is a big production in the Tampa area. So we have our tickets and we are going to see it today.

We did have a storm but it really wasn't that bad. A lot of rain and wind at times but nothing major. Yesterday was the usual day since we couldn't get out,I watched more games on the tube and Nancy did her usual reading. We were sitting around like two old folks.
The sun is shining nice and bright this morning so maybe we can get out and do something.

I'm feeling some better today. We are suppose to get some nasty storms today,the wind has really been blowing strong this morning. I hope it won't be too bad.

Did you get up early yesterday for the Black Friday Sales? I did last year but,no way was I going to fight the crowd this time. I got out a little later in the morning and went by the mall. The parking lot was still full. So hope that helps the economy a little.
I did as I had planned yesterday watching the ballgames and that plan will remain in effect for today. Of course I won't be eating as much as I did yesterday.

You will be able to travel a little cheaper since the price of gas is down.
Nancy and I are staying home this year. She baked some nut rolls last night,that plus a pumpkin pie for dessert after we eat the ham,sweet potatoes,green beans,diveled eggs and more. Afterwards I will watch ballgames and snack all day long.

Last night we watched the night launch of the shuttle. The photo shows the orange glow as the shuttle was going up into orbit. It wasn't as clear of a night as it was the last time,but still a sight to see from the Gulf side of the state.
