Counting down to April 5, 2012

It has been almost a month since I last wrote.  We are in the getting everything ready to start leaving Florida until next October.  On Thursday the 5th, we plan to go to the SKP lunch, return to Sumter Oaks RV Park, start the motorhome, and head towards Columbus GA for Easter.

During March, we had wonderful visits with friends and relatives.  On the 16th we went to  Ken & Alice Miller’s for dinner to celebrate Paul & Peg Gifford’s 1st anniversary.  On the 18th, we visited Pete & Mitzi Hull and went to Applebee’s for dinner.  Then, on Thursday, the 22nd, we went out for Mexican with Paul & Peg Gifford.  Friday, the 23rd, we had lunch at The Crazy Gator’s in Leesburg with Joe & Marianne Mellon, after our Dr. checkups.  Sunday, we met with Lon and Carolyn Van Ostran for lunch at Cracker Barrel.  Tuesday, the 27th, we went back to Leesburg to have blood drawn at a Quest Lab.  Then on Saturday, the 31st, we met with Mitzi and Pete again to go to the Florida Highland Games.  It rained, so we went to lunch for Mexican, and then returned to the motorhome for drinks.  We sure seem to have eaten out a lot during March, but we had wonderful visits with great friends.

Oh, and on Thursday the 29th, we had a wonderful baked spaghetti dinner in the Sumter Oaks clubhouse prepared by our wonderful managers. 

Yesterday and today, the 3rd and 4th, we have have been getting things packed so we can hit the road tomorrow.  We put the tripod satellite dish in the storage unit, stopped at Winn Dixie for last minute items, and bought gas for the Jeep at WalMart – $3.779 with the WM Discover card.

Our neighbors, Phil & Terri, left last week, so Marilyn has been watering their flowers.  I have been putting pictures of them on Facebook so they would not miss out on the blooms.  Here are the amaryllis and rose pictures I took today.IMG_0477IMG_0478
