Port Richey has just started painting murals on the wall of downtown buildings. The one above the little boy fishing is so good that you have to look hard cause it looks like a paper poster on the wall.

Remember These?

Remember the old 50's type Juke Boxes with the bubble lights? We could put a nickel in and select a tune or 6 plays for a quarter. Then they went to a quarter for one play. We went to the A &W restaurant yesterday and saw this old one with the songs from the 50's on it. Guess what? It was free play,just make a selection and it played your song free. WOW now can you believe that?

Big Cows

No the're not real. These 3 cows are in front of a local steak house. They're awful large,I don't know if this is any indication of the size of steak they serve.


Saw this stretched hummer on the road today. It must have been 35 feet long. Can you imagine the price tag on that?

Around the trail

The Veterans Park has a 1 mile walking trail around it. This tank is on the trail. I would say this tank or one like it would have many tales if it could talk.

Sunday Paper

The St.Petersburg Times and The Tampa Bay Tribune are sold on the busy intersection on Sundays. What amazes me is how can they sell the paper for .50. I come from a small town and the Sunday paper sells for $1.50.

Tampa RV Show

Yesterday we went to the 2005 Tampa RV Show,which was taking place at the Tampa Fairgrounds. The pic is some of the many rv's in the parking lot. This is a big gathering for many people to meet up with their friends as well as go to the show. I guess they just have their mini rallys. It's a lot of fun meet people face to face that previously you have only been on the internet with. Then you have the different clubs that get together. If you ever get a chance to go to one of the big rv show I'm sure you will enjoy it.

The over head signs point you to the seminars. Most was Joe and Vicki Kieva who authors of several books on rv lifestyle.

We saw this Model T with the old camper on the back. Inside the camper was a cot bed,gasoline stove and a storage cabinet. They were advertising T-Tours. Based out of Tehachapi,Ca. Its an old fashion tour that you drive a Model T in a caravan with others. If this type of thing is what you like you can check it out at No I'm not getting anything out of this,just telling what we saw in the show.

More people

Everwere you went there was a lot of people. If you needed anything the pretained to rving you could find it(sometimes a hard thing to do). Anything from parts to the campgrounds,small freezers,outdoor mats and so forth. They have hats,jewlry,food pots and pans,cleaning supplys,it was all here. I renewed my PassPort America membership. I like to do that at the show because,I get the book when I sign up. It takes about 3 weeks or so if you call them to renew to get the campground book. It was a long fun day.

Epiphany Day January 6,2005

Epiphany Day in Tarpon Springs. This is the a Greek Festival Day. It starts out with a service in the Greek Orthodox Church,then they carry the priest down to the water . The young men that are 16-18 years old are blessed. They get in the old fashion fishing boats in a circle. The priest throws the golden cross in the water and the young men dive in for it. The one that comes up with the cross is suppose to have the blessing for the next year in addition he gets a college tuition. Then the music and dancing in the park starts off with a full day of celebration. This event draws 30,000 people.

Coastal Living.

Coastal living along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico is nice. Except during hurricane season. This area had high winds but,not much damage.

Those Lousy Birds

It is nice to lay on the beach. The only problem is trying to keep the birds away. Still relaxing though.
