Good buddies..Howie, Connie, Paul, Paula, Tom and Bob
Doug and JoAnn (yes, Filmore's parents!) came by last week and we had a delightful visit with them, despite the cold temperatures. Howard and Linda Payne came down to Tampa for the RV Show and we met them along with Doug and JoAnn, Bill and Debbie, Arlene and Kevin and Jackie and Tony Albacini for dinner on Wednesday evening. Howard and Linda had organized a little "Meet and Greet" at the Tampa Show for Thursday so we all gathered there for a little visit. Oh...and it was 73 degrees and sunshine for the day!!! We were some happy campers!! :)
I had gotten an email from Maryann and Bill Parham who have been reading "the blogs" and met Bobbie and Jim Chapman in Coffeyville, KS. They are here in Leesburg and drove up to meet us all today at the show. What a lovely couple!! We made a plan to visit our favorite Saturday haunt, Sleepy Hollow on Saturday the 23rd....so if you're going to be near the area, plan on meeting us for those great $5.00 steaks at Sleepy Hollow! We sure look forward to seeing them again!
Bill, Maryann, Jim and Bobbie
Of course my camera is "somewhere" in the MH, so I "borrowed" this photo from Bobbie's blog!!! Thanks Bobbie!!
It was also really nice to spend some time getting to know Howard and Linda Payne better...they joined us for Happy Hour at Lazy Days and we spent a lot of time just chatting and laughing, and of course, solving all the world's problems. RV'ers are such a friendly lot and we are truly privileged to meet so many wonderful folks. Howard and Linda share so much of themselves with everyone...we really enjoyed our time with them!
Bill and Helen Moll are also here in Tampa so we're meeting for breakfast at Cracker Barrell this morning!! And it's going to be 75 degrees today!! Yes, indeed, life is good and my toes are warm again!! Where are my flipflops??
Oh, and that lovely frozen fountain marks the entrance to Paul and Connie's place in Ocala...that was on Sunday. Somehow it just seems wrong for fountains to be frozen by the palms!!! That's my story, though, and I'm sticking to it!! I just hope I never see it again!!
Hugs to everyone, and I hope it is warmer, wherever you are!
