Our daughter (Vicki) and granddaughter (Rebekah) will be here tomorrow for a weeks visit so that will make the week good. It is always good to see family whether we are visiting or if they come to visit us. Vicki usually has some place special that she wants to go to.
Nancy and I are doing about the same. She is having therapy twice a week and also doing therapy at home so she is staying busy trying to get stronger.
This is the time of year my thoughts are about getting into the motorhome and traveling. We have no departure date set so we will just have to wait and see.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

NCAA Basketball Tournament

The way it was raining from around 5:00 am until 10:30 am I thought it would rain all day.  But at 1:30 pm the sun came our and in a few hours everything was all dried out.
I finaly get a rest after five days in a row of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. No games until Thursday. I really enjoy these college basketball games.
Nancy and I have not been doing anything much, we did go to the store one time. That with taking the garbage down to the dumpster and checking the mail is about the most exciting thing that has been going on with us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Spring Time?

Spring is just about here and people are ready to get going in their rv's. That is unless you are in the north on the east side of the USA,, you have another snow that you will have to put up with.
There are a few folks heading out of the park here. Maybe they are going to take their time getting to far north.
Nancy and I are about the same. Nancy will be going to get her hair trimmed today and after that I will spend the day watching some of the many basketball games. This time of the year I think I would like to have six tv sets so I could see all of the games.
The end of this month will close out all of the activities in the park because most of the people heading out going to other places or their homes.
I'm still feeding the birds. Here are two painted buntings that come in of the morning and evening.
Sunset over Orchid Lake.

Block party

Nancy and I went to Sams the other day to mostly get a little walking in.
Its been a while so we drove out to the gulf just to look at the water which is always a nice thing to see if the sun is shining and the blue sky with some nice white clouds.
Thursday we had our 1st street block outing.
Looks like just about everyone came to enjoy the get together. They even had to put tables and chairs in the street which was blocked off so the traffic had to go around.
Richard grilling the wieners. I don't know the brand name but they were sure good.

More of the people lining up to get some of the food from the pot luck kettles.
It was a good time had by all as we good get together with everyone on 1st street.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Tarpon Springs

Our grandson Jeremy and wife Allison came down from Valdosta, Georgia Saturday to show us his new car.  The car was really nice, but the rascal didn't let us know he was coming and surprised us. It was good to see him and Allie.
They had never been to the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks so went down and they bought us dinner.  We all had a great time.
There were some nice boats in the harbor and some big ones that looked like they could go and stay for a long while on the high seas.
Nice large shrimp boat.
Needless to say it was quite crowded Saturday.  We had dinner at Hella's as we do each time we eat down in Tarpon Springs.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Some walking

Nancy said she felt like walking a little bit Sunday so I loaded up her walker and off we went.
The both of us are really out of shape and we will have to work on that. I know Nancy feels weak most of the time and I can understand why she doesn't want to get out to walk.
We went out to the J B Starkey Park where they have a bike asphalt bike trail. This makes it easier for Nancy to push her walker. The wild flowers are coming up so maybe spring is not far off.
Since the last time we were out here they have added several bike trails through the woods.
WE saw this gopher turtle enjoying the nice day and eating some grass.
Even though Nancy got tired she enjoyed being out and walking. We hope we can do more of this and get in better shape.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
