A Great Easter Dinner

DeBary, FL.

It was about 11:30 when CLT took Jim and Linda over to Marv and Inez's yesterday morning. He said that the traffic was particularly heavy and it seemed like everyone was in a hurry.

By about 1:00 everyone had arrived and they all sat down to enjoy a great meal of ham, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy and some great strawberry shortcake and brownies for desert.

After eating, everyone gathered outside on the deck where they all enjoyed  the "Chamber of Commerce" weather, (temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's with a nice breeze), that we were having. ; )

After talking for awhile and catching up on what everyone has been doing, some of the people started getting ready to leave. Jim and Linda were getting tired, so they said their Goodbyes, with H and H, (Hugs and Handshakes), and headed back here.

Again it was really nice for Marv and Inez to include Jim and Linda in their family gathering. They always have a house full of  family but always make room for Jim and Linda.

Thanks so much, Marv and Inez!!!

On the way back here to Highbanks, Jim and Linda stopped by the house and dropped off the items that they had bought at the stores and yard sales the other day and to check the mailbox for mail. They didn't stay long and by about 3:45 CLT was pulling into his spot here at the park.

After relaxing for a little while, both Jim and Linda took naps.

This afternoon, Linda and Laura are planning on going shopping. Linda needs some new jeans so they'll probably go over to the mall in Sanford. Jim was planning on installing the vent covers, that he had bought about a week ago, on Bobbie T's vents, but the weather is looking kind of "iffy", so that project may have to wait until tomorrow.

Did you know that  In Mexico and Spain, April Fool's Day is on December 28 (called Day of the Holy Innocents)? According to their custom, it is very foolish to lend someone anything (especially money) on that because it doesn't have to be returned.  Instead, the borrower sends the lender a box of candies with a note that he's been fooled.  In Germany and Norway,  April Fool's day is celebrated twice:
 On April 1 and on April 30.
