A Great Day With Friends

DeBary, FL.

Forecast = Cloudy early with peeks of sunshine expected late. High 83F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph.

I had a great day yesterday!!!!

I just couldn't wait for Laurie and George to arrive yesterday morning, and as soon as Laurie called and told Jim that they would be here around 11:30, I went out into the Florida Room and waited for them.

A little after 11:30 they arrived and after h and h, (hugs and handshakes), and a tour of the house and yard, Jim, Linda, George and Laurie sat down and talked and talked and talked. :-) After they had talked awhile, they all decided that they would order Chinese for lunch. After ordering, Jim and George, took George and Laurie's big truck and headed over to the restaurant to pick it up.

It must have been pretty good because much of the food was gone when they finished eating.

After they finished, they talked some more and then Jim took this photo of Laurie and George. I was so excited when Laurie picked me up so that I could be in the photo too. :-)

About 3:30, after more h and h, they decided that it was time for them to head back to their 5th wheel trailer near Altoona, FL, where they're work-camping at a National Forest. It sure was great to have them here for the afternoon. Laurie's father who lives in California is dealing with cancer too, and getting chemo treatments,  so she and Linda had a lot to talk about. In fact, Laurie will be flying out there to be with him soon.

It sure was nice of them to come and visit. I think it helped Linda a lot to have someone else to talk to and to get her mind off of her medical problems.

Thanks so much for coming to visit. You know where we live now, so maybe you can come back again sometime. ;-)

Oh, and George, I'm sure there'll be some more grapefruit for you to take home if you come again. ;-)

 Did you know that Macao and Woosung, founded by Chinese immigrant Norman Asing in 1849 is the first recorded Chinese restaurant in the U.S?


  1. We thoroughly enjoyed spending some time with you and Jim & Linda too! We're glad that Linda felt well enough to have visitors :-) There definitely will be more visits in the future!

  2. There are so many rvers in Florida this time of year. Glad everyone had a good visit.
