A Little Busier and Visiting With Glenn, Jeanette, Laura and Lindsey

DeBary, FL.

52 deg.  mostly cloudy, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs around 73°F. Light wind. Chance of precipitation 70 percent. New precipitation amounts from one quarter to one half of an inch possible.

It's been a little more busy around here since my last post. Thursday evening, Jim and Linda decided that they wanted Pizza for dinner, so Linda called, (Who else)? Gentile's Pizza and ordered a medium pizza for Jim to pick up. The pizza was ready by the time Jim got to the pizza place and in no time he was backing Big RED back into the car port. :-)

Also on Thursday, Laura called and asked Linda if she'd like to go to see the latest Hobbit movie ( The Battle Of The 5 Armies), that was playing down in Sanford? Linda said that she'd like to see it, so Friday afternoon, Laura swung by, picked Linda up and they headed over there.

Linda said that she and Laura really enjoyed it, and by about 5;00 or so, Laura was dropping Linda back off here at the house.

Saturday was spent sprucing up the house in anticipation of  Glenn and Jeanette coming on Sunday. You know, things like cleaning the bathrooms, straightening things up, dusting and vacuuming.

Sunday, Linda got up early, (about 7:00 AM), and put all the ingredients in the crock pot for the pot roast dinner she had planned. After getting it all together and turned on, she laid back down on the bed and slept some more. I always like it when Linda makes a pot roast, it always smells s o o o o o good! ;-)

The weather was just about perfect for Glenn and Jeanette's visit yesterday, with temps in the middle 70's, lots of sunshine and light winds. Much better than the close to 0 and below temps they've had up in Wisconsin this winter. When Glenn and Jeanette arrived about 3:00 they commented about how great the weather was. :-) Then, after h and h, (hugs and handshakes), and a tour of the house, everyone visited and caught up on what's been happening since they had seen each other, back in July of 2013.

Laura and Lindsey arrived around 4;00 and after more h and h, everyone visited some more.

Jim took this photo of Linda, Laura and Lindsey sitting on the couch

 and then Laura took this one of Jim , Linda, Glenn and Jeanette.

The meal went off without a hitch and everyone seemed to really enjoy the dinner Linda prepared. After eating and getting everything cleaned up, there was more visiting until around 8:00. Glenn and Jeanette were tired after a long day and Laura and Lindsey headed home because Lindsey has to get up real early to go to work over by Daytona Beach this morning.

After everyone left, Linda and Jim cleaned up and moved the table back next to the wall. Then they watched TV and fooled around with the computers until bedtime.

It was a very good day, and Linda and Jim really enjoyed seeing Glenn and Jeanette again and having them and Laura and Lindsey over for dinner and to visit.. If everything works out, we may be able to see them again this summer, on our way back from Oregon. ;-)

Did you know that on this date in 1969 - The Boeing 747 flew its inaugural flight?



  1. Have to agree with Laurie...

    Linda, you do look terrific!

  2. You both look awesome! Good to hear you'll be traveling this summer. Oregon is supposed to be beautiful.
