So, after we finished up at Lazy Days we moved back up to Florida Grande for a week or so to visit our neighbors and get ready to head West. Norah and Howie were already at FG, so we did our usual routine of projects, eating, cards, eating, visiting, eating...and so forth. Bob and Howie got the Honda set up to tow and the solar panels mounted on both of the motorhomes. I think we are all anxious to be traveling now!
Before we headed out, we wanted one last visit to Sleepy Hollow over in Floral City for their famous $5.00 steaks on Saturday. So word got around and we all headed out to the biker bar under the Spanish Moss.....
Helen, Maryann & Molly (Above left) and Bob & Molly, Maryann & Bill, Paula & ..oops, missed Tom! (Above right)
The weather was perfect for those grilled steaks and the company was even better!!
Helen and Bill along with Janice and Dean came down from The Wilderness, Paul and Connie came from Ocala, Joe and Marcia and Walt and Donna drove up from Tampa, ...Tom and Paula joined us at the MH in Webster, as did Maryann and Bill from Lakeland and we caravan-ed over to Sleepy Hollow!
It has been awhile since we were all together, so many of us headed back to FG to see the new motorhomes and to have a little more time to visit!! As the day wore on, it was decided that we needed to finish the day off up at Mariachi's Mexican in Bushnell, where we had spent many enjoyable times last winter. The food was really great; we did miss our favorite waitress, Felice, as she has joined the Army..but her nephew took pretty good care of us.
Good friends, laughter, flipflop weather, and a great little Southern Rock-N-Roll band...all under the Spanish Moss ....I'm not sure it gets much better than this!
So the end of January finds us leaving the lovely Florida weather and heading to Northwest Alabama....yes, indeed, on to Red Bay!! Whatever are we thinking?????
It's going to be c-o-l-d up there!! I am going to miss my flipflops!
