What have we done since January 1, 2012, It is now the 16th.

We have been enjoying not having a lot to do.  We try to walk 3 miles every day before breakfast if it is not too cold.  Yesterday morning was 30 when we got up – no walk.  This morning it was 42 and Marilyn had a talk to go to at nine, so we walked in the afternoon.  I have been trying to get all of our old photographs scanned into the computer.  Finished about 1500 except for labeling them.  I think there are 2 more albums to scan.  We did pick up our new glasses last week, although mine need some more adjusting.

Last week was the Tampa RV Super Show.  We did not work.  In past years, we have sold Escapees memberships with another couple.  They backed out last fall, and we begged out in late November.  Escapees must have decided to cancel the show much earlier than that, because their name was not included in the show book.  We did attend the show on Wednesday, and spent the day going in and out of several of the new rigs, plus wandering each vendor building. 

Marilyn and I decided that we would try to lose weight this year.  We have stopped drinking Manhattans except on Sunday, and we only go out to eat one time per week.  It is starting to show, now that we are in our third week.  Last Sunday, we gathered for cocktails at the Jarvis’ site with a some other couples.  Yesterday, we cocktailed with Pete and Mitzi Hull, and Larry and Carolyn Jarvis.  I worked with Pete for many years at the IRS.

Our dinner with Pete and Mitzi was barbecued Halibut, and we still have some in the freezer from Alaska.  We always enjoy our afternoons catching up on our lives.


  1. Good for you for taking such nice walks. "They" say that is one of the best things to do for both your health and weight loss. Good's a great way to start the new year.

  2. All your blog pictures from May & June 2011 are missing. All I get is a black square with an "!" in the middle. Other months may be missing as well.

    I was reviewing your Alaska trip since we are planning on going this year.
