We picked our daughter Vicki up at the Clearwater St. Pete Airport last night at !0:30 pm but by the time she got her lugage it was 11:00. We got back home close to midnight,so we were pretty well worn out.
Today we took our time getting ready and after getting ready we took Vicki down To Chestnut Park were we walked the trails. On the way back we had dinner at Christo's.

In the afternoon we went walking again today it was down to John Chestnut Park That sits along Tarpon Lake. As we crossed the bridge to go to the walking trail we saw these turtles on a log getting some sun,
The lily pads floating on the water looked nice.
The wildflowers were out in all their beauty. We had a very good walk as the weather was sunny and a soft warm breeze was blowing.

After church we went to dinner with our friends Lee and Hazel. Then it was off to the flea market to exchange the VCR. I found another but it didn't look as good as the first one I had so I told the lady to hook up the one I had to see if she could get it to work. Well yep it worked for her,I says put a tape in see if it plays. yep again real nice so I says I'll take it back. I came home hooked every thing up and what do you know I get the menu on the tv. I put in a tape to play and the thing is all messed up,the speech is garbled the picture all streakie. not one bit good. I'm not taking it back,to the trash pile it goes.
I hope you have a good day.

The gulf canal comes in under a couple of bridges in the town and the people will be there on the bridges fishing anytime you are going through. No super highways here just a two lane road with a speed limit of 35 MPH.

We pulled into the parking lot of the small Salvation Army Store that is close by but was unable to park because it was so crowded,it was half price on clothing day and everyone was out looking for a bargain. So we went to the Thrift Store where I found a "almost new" keyboard for Nancy's webtv. The cost was a bargain and a half at 50 cents. Nancy gathered up some book that she thought was $2.00 worth and took them to the counter. The guy told her she could fill up a Walmart bag full for $2.00. That made her day. Next was off to the large new Salvation Army Store. Nancy found her some things to buy in this store,so we had a good day at those two stores. Next was to Webb's 99¢ store were we bought a bunch of Archway cookies.
After all that shopping we went to the mall to do our walking. Another good full day.

Getting out and seeing gas prices that are higher then they should be is no fun. With the oil prices going down and gas prices going up it doesn't make sense.

From there we went to Walmart and did some grocery shopping. After getting back home we put the groceries away and went down to James Ge Preserve to finish up our walking for the day.
After getting home I fired up the grill and fixed us a couple of steaks to perfection,boy did it taste good.
Yesterday we did a few things around the house,I washed the car and watched a couple of basketball games. The in the evening time we went to our friends Jim and Donna. We visited for a short while then went out to a nice dinner,came back to Donna and Jim's house to sit around and visit a couple of hours.
