Steak Dinner

 Friday was the day we decided to have dinner at Sioux City Steak House.                                                              

We all ordered the everyday special 8oz Sirloin, here is Vicki waiting on hers.
I've eaten here several times and always have the steak cooked just right.

Here's my order, steak, slaw, baked potato with plenty of butter and crispy fried onions.
We all three ordered much the same thing. We could not eat all of it so some of it came home with us.

Vicki had to have a photo with the Buccaneer that's always at the door to great you.
A meal with the one's you love is always nice.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Trip to Cedar Key

 Vicki, our first-born daughter arrived by plane from Lexington this past Sunday to spend a week with us and it was good to see her again.

Wednesday, we made a short trip up to Cedar Key so she could see what the town looked like since it has not changed from the old days.

But first we stopped to see this old engine in the small town of Gulf Hammock


Here's Nancy and Vicki standing in front of an old steam engine that used to haul trees to a near by sawmill all owned by the same company.

Front of the steam engine.

Couple of signs telling about the sawmill and town that the lumber company built.
You can click the photos to enlarge.

Here is the part of town that looks like it was built on stilts that stick out over the gulf waters.

We picked one of the restaurants to have our meal.

We watched the seagulls.

And pelicans as we enjoyed our meal.

Doctor appointments

 Last Monday Nancy and I had a doctor's appointment mostly to get our prescriptions filled for our meds.
But of course, we both had other things to get checked on.

For Nancy it was her feet where she has been having a problem that Jeff (our PA) will have to keep a check on.  
Then it was my turn which took up a lot of time, which I had to fill him in what has been happening to me.
After telling Jeff, he called the hospital to get all the information he set me up an appointment with a lung specialist to see what the spot on my lung all is about.

By the time we got out of the office 3 1/2 hours later we were both hungry, so we went to Applebee's 
to have our meal which was good and very filling.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day day.

Sherry's back home in West Virginia


Sherry and I went to a new State Park (Werner Boyce) to check it out.

It has a nice kayak launch where you can go around in the mangrove bush for the day.

If you do not own a kayak, you can rent one here on site.

A nice boardwalk and several hiking trails that will be a good way to spend the day.

It was a bittersweet day this past Mondy as Sherry had to load up on a plane and go home.
She stayed a long time with us making sure that Nancy and myself could get along without her.

We left in time to visit John Chesnut Park where we had a nice time.
Sherry was tickled because she got to see a great number of squirrels playing around and not only seen alligator, but the alligator was trying to catch a squirrel upon the shore of the lake.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Have to stay busy doing something

 I'm sorry folks I'm still not doing very much these days and I know it will take time to recover fully.
But stick with me through all this.

Yesterday I did get out to gauge up the air in the tires and clean out the inside of the car a little.  

It was a big chore for me just to do that especially with the heat well into the middle 90's.
I'm not used to getting so wore down in such a short time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Nice day and weather.

 Still trying to hold back from over doing it.  But I'm still doing some small stuff around the house.


As you can see I have my appetite back.  I try to have something for breakfast each morning
Yesterday it was waffles and sausage to start the day.

Our daughter Sherry and I took a side road down by the gulf waters to see some new areas Sheryy has not seen.        


Sherry likes to see boats and houses along the gulf.

Its always nice to get out and enjoy the day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
