Monday–Thursday, 2/27 to 3/1/2012

We were asked to host a “Low Country Boil” Monday afternoon.  Since we did not have to do the cooking, of course we agreed.  Bennett brought his cooker over early in the afternoon, and we sat around watching the pot boil.IMG_0402

It did rain, so some of the cooking was under umbrellas.IMG_0406

It did stop raining long enough for us to eat, and what a delicious plate of food.IMG_0407IMG_0408IMG_0410IMG_0411

We ate so much, the serving dishes were emptied.IMG_0412IMG_0414

Then after we ate, we had to sit around and discuss world problems.IMG_0415IMG_0416IMG_0417

On Wednesday, we returned to Busch Gardens to see one of my favorite groups, The Ventures.  I had several of their albums when albums were on vinyl.  DSC01693

Nokie Edwards on the left, and Don Wilson on the right are the only remaining original members of the band.

After the concert, we took a group picture, and had lunch.DSC01699IMG_0427

Then it was time to take some more animal pictures.  There were lions being fed, African storks being fed, some Mearcats, and a Hyena. DSC01700DSC01704DSC01710IMG_0429

Today (Thursday), we had another Escapees lunch at the Golden Corral in Clermont, FL.  It was another good turnout.  The picture below was taken with an app called PhotoSynth.  You start it with a screen tap, and as you move the phone around, the app takes additional shots which it stitches into a panorama.IMG_0431

  1. I haven't thought of the Ventures in years but I used to love them. I just did a search and got something called Ventures Radio so now I'm listening to Venture tunes while typing this. Cool!!
    Just wondered if you came up with any solutions while you were discussing world problems?!?! We could use some (answers, not problems lol)
