A Spot For Bobbie T, Laura And Lindsey and A Reply To A Comment

DeBary, FL.

63 deg, clear, SW wind @ 7 mph.
Forecast = Today: Partly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs around 72°F. Northwest wind 10 to 15 MPH, gusting to 21 MPH. Chance of precipitation near 45%.
Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows around 57°F. North wind 6 to 14 MPH, gusting to 19 MPH.

I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to post an entry to this blog this morning or not. Not much happened yesterday so I was having trouble thinking of something to write about.

Jim and Linda did go over to Highland Estates about 10:30 though, and and made it official that they'd have a place to park Bobbie T in the storage lot when we come back in the fall. They now have an agreement saying that spot #2 is reserved for him and will be available as of November 1. : ) Jim also has a key to the storage area so that he can get in there anytime he wants. And, because they have someone who wants to store something on that spot this summer, Jim and Linda won't have to start paying storage until Bobbie T actually starts using the spot.

After that, they'll have to pay $25 per month, year round to reserve the site. That's still a whole lot cheaper than any storage lot in this area, and of course any other storage area wouldn't be near as convenient as a place right by the house.

Laura and Lindsey came over to visit for a couple hours after dinner last night. Linda and Laura sat inside and talked and Jim and Lindsey sat outside since the weather was nice.

Today, Jim and Linda will meet Laura, (and maybe Lindsey), over at the house so that she can see Linda's new "4 poster bed". Then, later, they may all go out to dinner together because after today, Laura has to work every day and we won't get a chance to see her again before we leave Sunday. : (

Tomorrow will be a busy day for Jim and Linda. There's still quite a lot of things that have to be done over at the house, and of course, there's still a lot to here. Hopefully Jim and Linda will be able to get some of it done today, so they won't have too much to do tomorrow.

Retired Rod left a comment on yesterday's post. He was inquiring about the legalities of Jim and Linda having the house down here in Florida and still keeping South Dakota as their residence.

Well, I don't know all about the laws, but as of now, we'll be in Florida less that 6 months out of the year, and the house will be treated like a winter home, just like thousands of other people do from all over the U.S. For the near future, we'll continue to head up North for the summers to spend time with family and friends and continue to go places that Jim and Linda still want to visit, such as New England and parts of the upper  Mid-West and North-West.

Their Drivers License's are good for 3 more years so at that time, they may decide to make Florida their residence because there really won't be a reason not to. And, (let's face it), in years to come, they'll probably be traveling less than they do now.

Did you know that Frogs are found everywhere in the world except in Antarctica?
