Grown-ups In A Candy Store and A Visit With Very Good Friends

DeBary, FL.

45 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = High temp. 72 deg. mostly sunny, NE wind at 10 to 15 mph.

As planned, Jim and Linda took Big RED and headed over to Wildwood yesterday morning. They left about 10:15 and by 11:35 they were pulling up in front of the Russell Stover Candies Store on the West side of town.

They spent about 1/2 hour wandering around in the store, buying sugar free candy for Linda, before heading further West to look for a place to eat, out by I-75.  Most of the restaurants were very crowded and they finally settled on the Waffle House where there just happened to a few parking places near the entrance.

After a tasty meal, they headed over to Donna and Monte's house, arriving there a little after 1:00.

They have a very nice double-wind located on a small lake.

This is the view from their back yard.  Nice!!!

After H and H, (Hugs and Handshakes), they all sat at the kitchen table and talked and talked, catching up on what has been happening in their lives since they last saw one another.

Both Jim and Linda said that it was sure good to see Donna and Monte again and visit with them. In fact it was about 4:30 before they left and traveled the hour and a half back here to DeBary, arriving back home about 6:00 pm.

Both Jim and Linda were tired by the time they returned, but it was a very good day, visiting with very good friends.

Did you know that in 1923 Clara and Russell Stover began making candy in the kitchen of their Denver bungalow home? The company, initially employing seven employees was first known as Mrs. Stover's Bungalow Candies.
