Say Good-bye to February

It may be the shortest month of the year, but February didn't seem to go by too fast. Maybe it was because we were so busy, that we just went flow. No matter, it was a good month, full of fun and friends. Now, hopefully, March will be full of great weather!!

Speaking of busy, we had a heck of a busy morning/early afternoon. We left the rig about 9:30 so that we could stop and see Mike & Gerri before they pulled out. They were finishing up the breaking camp duties and we got our hugs and said our "see ya laters." I'll confess, there were a few tears shed, but Gerri and I didn't make fun of Randy & Mike for that! :) (Do you believe that? Really? Say, I've got this bridge . . .)

Of course, it's always easier to say good-bye when you've got a plan to see each other in just a few months! Mike & Gerri will be making their way to Maine this summer along with us and a few other couples for The Maine Event. Then, we found out that we'll be in Pine Mountain, GA at the same time right after Thanksgiving, so that's two plans! Now that I think of it, why the heck were we sad at all???? :)

After church, Randy and I made our way north to Bay Minette. The Jubilee Pickers had been invited to play for an event at First Baptist Church. But, first, the church was providing us with lunch. That was a good thing 'cause I am always starving after church! The event had a Mexican fiesta theme so we were served chili, cornbread, chips & salsa, and brownies for dessert. It was tasty!

Once our bellies were full, it was show time! We played for about 45 minutes and the folks seem to enjoy the music. They were gracious and generous with their applause and we felt very appreciated. More satisfied customers! Sorry there are no pictures, but my cameraman is now part of the band!

We got home about 2:30 or so and hit the recliners. I was ready for a nap! Unfortunately, that didn't really happen, just got about 10 minutes or so. We also watch Canada beat USA in overtime for the Olympic gold medal in hockey. Congratulations, Canada!

Now, it's time to rummage for some dinner. No ice cream social for us tonight. I think I hit my fill of socializing for the weekend. :) Plus, I don't want to get out of my nice, comfy jammies. :)

Ooooh! Tomorrow's the first of the month and you know what that means! Bank and grocery runs! Until the next time . . .

One Last Gathering

We had no plans for today - and that was such a nice feeling. All I had to do was laundry and I started that a little past 7am. About 8:30 I was done and Randy met me at the clubhouse for breakfast. After that, we were done for the day 0r so we thought . . .

Computer, TV and cross stitching were all the endeavors we were pursuing. Then, we got a phone call late this morning from Judy inviting us to dinner at their place this evening. It was to be them, us, Mike & Peggy and Mike & Gerri. Well, you know we didn't say no! First, it was a free meal. :) But, of course, it was really the company we'd be in. At least, that's what I told Judy. :)

So, after a nice, lazy day, we meandered over to Darrell & Judy's. First thing I saw when I walked out of our rig was this beautiful sky.

Darrell & Judy prepared a great meal of spaghetti and meatballs and with Mike & Peggy's delicious garlic bread, we ate good. (I know, the grammar isn't so great, but hey, I got the point across!) After we're stuffed with dinner, Judy tells us there are brownies!! And iced ones, at that! Oh, my. Well, I didn't want to insult Judy, so I forced myself to eat a brownie. Can't say I'm not a grateful dinner guest!

The main reason for this gathering was the imminent departure of Mike & Gerri. They are leaving us tomorrow to head back to their hometown for doctor's appointments. It is so hard to say good-bye. We have just fallen in love with them and enjoy the time we have spent together.

Tonight was no different. The eight of us laughed so hard, that my jaws hurt! We have just clicked with these folks and we can talk about serious things as well as laugh 'til it hurts. Fantastic. Before we knew it, it was 9pm!! And as Darrell will tell you - that's midnight in the RV world. :) So, we said our good nights and we all headed for home.

We plan to get our hugs from Mike & Gerri tomorrow as we'll stop by their rig on our way to church. That's not gonna fun. We're gonna miss you!!

Until the next time . . .

This Was a GREAT Day!!

Okay, it just doesn't get much better than this! The day was filled with music, food, and friends!

Our lives have been so enriched by the people we have met since we've been on the road. We have always been blessed with good friends and I figured that we'd be on our own while traveling and then catch up with friends when we'd go home. Boy, was I wrong! In the five and a half years we've been on the road, we have met so many fabulous people and several of them have become close friends. I am so grateful for the life God has given me.

We started our day with music. Jam 'N' Folks (my Tuesday group) played for the senior center in Orange Beach, which is about 40 minutes southeast of us. Thirty-five of us showed up to perform an hour show. The audience was wonderful and we had a great time.

Mary Anne, our leader (me in the background!)
After the gig, Dick & Pat and Randy & I went in search of lunch. Actually, we knew where we were going - Calypso Joe's. Dick & Pat had been there once last year, liked it and wanted to share it with us. The draw for this restaurant is their $5.99 buffet which is only offered on Fridays. Hey! That worked for us 'cause today is Friday! ;) And when I can feed Randy for $5.99, I'm there! :) The food was good, too.

The restaurant is located at the Orange Beach Marina which is home to many, many boats. Large boats, too. And there are many palm trees that line the docks. I love palm trees!

Once we got home, we had just a couple of hours or so before we were to go back out for another meal with more friends. So, we relaxed in the recliners; and I tried to nap while Randy watched the USA vs. Finland hockey game. I did get about 15 minutes of sleep and then decided I'd watched the American Idol results show up in the bedroom.

At 4:30pm, it was time for our next restaurant excursion. Twelve of us; Darrell & Judy, Mike & Gerri, Mike & Peggy, Glenn & Sylvia, Jesse & Ginger, and us were meeting at Big Daddy's for dinner. Not that we need a reason to go to Big Daddy's, but we actually had a specific reason for this particular gathering. Jesse & Ginger had come to the Plantation for just one night on their way to Maryland. Randy & I had not yet met Jesse & Ginger, but I have followed their blog almost from the beginning of their travels.

The gang
Jesse & Ginger
Needless to say (but, I'll say it anyway!), we had a fabulous time! Since there were twelve of us, we were seated at a long table. Randy & I sat closest to Mike & Peggy and Glenn and we had a good time sharing stories with them. We just met Mike & Peggy and Glenn & Sylvia this winter, so it was fun getting to know them better. Mike & Peggy will be part of the Maine Event this summer when ten of us meet in Maine for a week.

All too soon it was time to say good night. I was so disappointed when I found out that Jesse & Ginger were only staying for one night. They are fellow Marylanders and it would have been fun to talk with them about familiar places. But, I'm sure we'll cross paths again down the road. I'm grateful that we got this evening, though!

This day personified the RVing lifestyle - enjoying life to the fullest, surrounded by people you love. Not bad, not bad at all.

Until the next time . . .

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Yep, It's Thursday . . .

. . . and that means music. Thursdays are fun 'cause Randy and Dick go with us to Jubilee Pickers. I really enjoy Randy being there with me. It's great to share this music and these folks with him.

Typically, many of us go out to lunch together to the local Chinese buffet. However, there was a gig at an assisted living facility that several people were going to, so Dick & Pat and Randy & I went out to lunch on our own. Dick
loves gumbo and he hadn't had it at his favorite restaurant yet, so we headed into downtown Fairhope to have lunch at Old Bay Steamer.

Lunch was pretty good, although the service was a bit slow. Unfortunately, Dick was a little disappointed in his gumbo; he said that it wasn't the same recipe as he'd had in the past. It wasn't bad, it was as good as before.

From there, we took a scenic drive home. There are so many side streets throughout Fairhope and it's always fun to drive along looking at the quaint houses and bungalows.

The rest of the day has been spent as usual, when we're home: TV and computer. We are an exciting couple, huh? :)

Tomorrow Pat & I have a gig with JamNFolks in Orange Beach. The guys are going along to watch the performance and go to lunch. :) Pat says there's a good restaurant she wants to go to - Calypso Joe's. I'll let you know what we think!

Until the next time . . .

A Quiet Day

Yeah, we were lazy. Well, I did get myself out to Curves early this morning, and a good thing I did, too, 'cause I remembered that we've got a gig on Friday morning and I won't be able to go then. So, I'm only getting one day in this week. Not good at all! Oh, well. Whatcha gonna do? It is what it is.

That's about the only thing we did today. I spent the remainder of the day either on the computer or cross stitching. Didn't even go to the clubhouse for the dulcimer jam. Randy watched TV or was on the computer. Neither of us napped; now that's a surprise! :)

For dinner I made TexMex Pasta Skillet. Now, I've made it once before and I remember now that was kinda blah. You'd think it wouldn't be 'cause it has Rotel in it and I also put some of the southwest seasoning in it. But, even with that (and it the hot Rotel, too!) it was kinda bland. Of course, the Rotel wasn't, but it wasn't enough to make the rest of the dish exciting. So, that's a recipe I won't be making again.

Found out the hard way that there was no choir practice tonight. Yep, I went . And while I was sitting in the sanctuary waiting for everyone else, someone walked in and said, "Did you know there is no choir practice tonight"? Well, I do now! ;) It happens. I just ended up with some quiet time, and that's not a bad thing.

Now we're watching the USA vs. Swiss hockey game. Yes, I know it was played earlier - but that's what's nice about a DVR! :)

Until the next time . . .

Much Better Day

I woke up a bit wobbly this morning, with what a friend calls a "headache hangover." :) And that is an apt name. I was a little bleary and there was an echo of a headache yet. But, I was SO much better than yesterday. Thanks to everyone for their get well wishes and prayers!

Since I was feeling better, I went to the Tuesday dulcimer group. I gotta admit, though, about halfway through I could have come home. But, I had driven Pat and another woman needed a ride home, so I just pushed through. And I was fine.

After getting home, I got some lunch and that helped me to feel better. Then a nice hour and a half nap topped off the afternoon.

Mike & Gerri stopped by for a bit as well this afternoon. Every visit we have with them just confirms my initial feeling that these folks would become good friends. We laugh, we share our lives with each other, and just connect on a deep level. And that doesn't happen often. So, I am grateful to God for bringing them into our lives. It's gonna be hard to say good-by this weekend!

Tonight the Baldwin Pops Band performed their winter concert. Randy started playing in this band last year and really enjoys it. Once again, the music was moving, fun, and altogether enjoyable. It is so much fun to be exposed to all kinds of music here - our dulcimer groups and the Pops. We are really blessed to be part of it all.

Looks like our weather is gonna take a turn toward chilly again. Ugh. Oh, well. It could be snow, I guess. From what I've seen on Facebook tonight, looks like the East Coast is getting it again. I really feel sorry for them, they've been hammered this winter.

Hope wherever you are, you're content. I know I am. :)

Until the next time . . .

No Music Today

Randy & I were to play with the Pickers at gig this evening. Unfortunately, I woke up before dawn with the mother of all headaches. I don't think I've had one this bad in 15 years. Ugh.

I was hoping as the day went on that I'd feel like going to the gig. Didn't happen. While I do feel better, I am nowhere near 100%. Oh, well. There will be other opportunities this week to play. And I'm sure I'll feel better in the morning.

That's it for me tonight. Just wanted to check in!

Until the next time . . .

Beans, Beans, Good for the Heart . . .

We had a nice surprise this morning - Randy came back from walking Blackie and hollered in to me to come outside as quickly as possible. He wanted to show me this

Isn't it beautiful? Unfortunately, the pictures don't do it justice. We couldn't believe the intensity of the colors AND it hadn't even rained yet this morning. Such a great way to begin a Sunday. Seems like God was saying good morning. :)

We went to church this morning, as usual. Then, we had to run an errand as it is one of our nephew's birthday next Sunday. We had to get his present and get it in the mail. That done, we headed home.

The afternoon was spent in front of the TV watching the Olympics and napping. :)

This evening the park held its annual Flatulence Fest. Yes, it's a supper of bean dishes. As many folks as want to, bring a dish to share. Folks pay $3 each to sample all of the different dishes. I made a beef/bean taco dip. There were lots of soups and dips and even bean brownies! The money collected is donated to our local fire department. Appropriate, huh? :)

After the fest, it was time for the weekly ice cream social. Once folks got their ice creams and settled down, a couple of the acoustic music groups and other musicians in the park played for a couple of hours. There is a lot of talent in this park! My Wednesday afternoon dulcimer group played, too. Lots of good music and lots of fun. :)

Now, it's back to the Olympics!

Until the next time . . .

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Friday & Saturday

Yeah, I was lazy last night. Just didn't feel like posting. But, in my defense, it was a very quiet day yesterday. I went to Curves in the morning, as usual. Then, Randy and I went to breakfast and ran some errands.

I spent part of the afternoon outside in my lounge chair in the the sunshiny, 60something degree weather. How nice was that! Randy went to his
psaltery group. Dinner was grilled pork chops, green beans, and cheddar biscuits.

The evening was spent watching the Olympics.

We started today much as we did yesterday - with breakfast out. :) We went with Dick & Pat to Hazel's for their
omelet buffet. They have great food and made-to-order omelets. I'm not an omelet person, but Randy, Dick & Pat love them.

After hitting the grocery store for Dick & Pat, we made a stop to fill a propane tank for us and then we came home.

I spent the major part of the afternoon at the laundry room 'cause I wasn't able to get it done this morning. Unfortunately, the park has had to start locking the laundry room and clubhouse due to some vandalism earlier this year. Until now these facilities have never been locked. So, now the official time for the laundry room to open is 8am, unless the manager is around while breakfast is being made on Saturday and then he'll open it. The last couple of weeks he's been there and opened for me at 6:30am. Today, he wasn't. :( So, I had to wait my turn today when I went over around 12:30. Ugh. I finally got back to the rig around 2:30 or so.

This evening we had the privilege of going to Mike & Gerri's for dinner. Dinner was very good, topped off with a yummy peach cobbler. But, the best part of the evening was sitting around just chatting - getting to know each other even better. Oh, how wonderful it is to find folks with similar standards and values. People you don't have to impress or work at liking! :) We had a fantastic time. Thank you, Mike & Gerri!! We're sure gonna miss you when you leave next week!

Now, we're back home and once again watching the Olympics. These athletes are amazing!

Until the next time . . .

A Musical Birthday Celebration

We had a slightly different jam session at Pickers today. One of our members, Linda, wanted to celebrate her husband, Marvin's, birthday with a surprise potluck lunch. She had emailed all of us a couple of weeks ago and asked us to bring a dish to share in honor of Marvin. Of course, we thought it was a great idea!

About 9:15 most of the members were there and we began playing as usual. When Marvin and Linda arrived, we all shouted "Surprise!" and sang a loud and vigorous "Happy Birthday" to Marvin. He was caught totally unaware.

It was such a treat to honor him in this way as Marvin is a fantastic man - always upbeat and ready with a hug. He and Linda have a wonderful relationship; they are still so much in love after many happy years of marriage. Their kids were with us today as well.

After we'd jammed for a couple of hours, it was time to chow down. As is usually the case with potlucks, there was a lot of great food and even better fellowship.

This is a wonderful group of people to be associated with. I am so grateful for them!

Randy's out at Pops rehearsal this evening. He's got a concert next Tuesday. I'm sure it will be great.

Until the next time . . .

More Music

Got myself up and out the door to Curves this morning. I hadn't been since last Wednesday and I knew I was gonna feel it. And I did. Ugh. But I persevered and did my three circuits and was out the door! Stopped at the grocery to pick up a few things and was back home around 9am.

Spent the remainder of the morning catching up on blogs and Olympics. Boy, do I love our DVR!! I've been able to watch all of the events I like without having to stay up until all hours of the night! Or if I've gotta be out during the day, I know I can watch when I get home. Ah, the wonders of technology. :)

This afternoon I was at the clubhouse for a couple of hours playing music. This group is going to play on Sunday evening after the annual Flatulence Fest. We've picked eleven songs to perform. I think folks will like them.

Randy maintained the homefront while I was out and about. He's such a great guy - all the running around I do and he never complains. I bet, if truth be told, he enjoys the quiet!

After a dinner of chicken divan, I went to choir practice at church. This was my first time attending. Everyone (all ten of them!) made me feel so welcome. It's so much fun attending a small church - everything is more laid back and informal. Practice was just an hour long and it was filled with laughter as well as singing. I look forward to going back.

So, now I've added one more music activity to our schedule. Well, you can't get enough music in your life, right?

Until the next time . . .

And So It Ends . . .

Mardi Gras 2010 is over. And it was fun while it lasted, I'll tell ya.

Before the events of this evening, though, I went to a dulcimer rehearsal this morning. And this afternoon found me in the recliner, napping. Not sure why I was so sleepy, but there it was. Randy even left to get propane and I didn't know it 'til I woke up and saw he was gone!

This evening we made our way over to the clubhouse for the last of our Mardi Gras celebrations. Once again the folks crowded in.

Tonight we ate, laughed and saw the King & Queen exiled for another year. One of the annual events of the last night is the costume contest. Most folks don't dress up, but those who do . . . well, they make the most of it!

The next few days will be much more laid back. I think I'm ready for that. In fact, it's a good thing 'cause next week is filled with music. We've got several dulcimer gigs and Randy's got a concert. Pat & I figured out that we will play music in one form or another seven out of eight days, beginning next Sunday evening. Whew.

Hope your week is going well. Until the next time . . .

The Festivities Continue . . .

Ahhhh . . . Monday morning. That means Curves for me, right? Well, not this morning. Ugh. I woke up to rain and another headache. Most days when I wake up with a headache, I make myself go to Curves anyway 'cause I know the exercise will ease the pain. However, this morning I just couldn't do it. So, I sat in the recliner, drank my two cups of coffee and read the blogs and caught up on Facebook. Yeah, I'm a nudge.

Anyway, once the caffeine got in my system, I felt a bit better. By then, it was time to get ready for the day. Today was the park's Mardi Gras parade! It's always great to see how folks decorate their golf carts, bicycles, cars, and themselves! The park Red Hatters always have a float and our neighborhood firefighters join in the fun as well.

The Color Guard led the parade
Some of the bicycles
The Red Hatters
Some golf carts
Fire trucks
After the parade we had a good lunch of pulled pork, baked beans, cole slaw and dessert. Then it was time for the entertainment. Today there was a sci fi skit, The Chenilles, and music from the Wednesday afternoon jam group. Unfortunately, the skit didn't lend itself to pictures and y'all have seen The Chenilles. Randy did get a couple of pictures of the dulcimer group. We played four songs, one of which was a Caribbean-feel "Sloop John B" complete with a steel drum and dreads! :)

You know, the fun is goofy and corny, but it's FUN. We had a great time. Too bad it all ends tomorrow. :)

Until the next time . . .

A Karaoke Valentine's Day

Such a great day today! The temps warmed up into the 50s and it was sunny. So nice after the dreary cold weather we've been having.

Randy and I went to church this morning and decided to go out to lunch afterward. I mean, it IS Valentine's Day. :) I know, any excuse. We called Mike & Gerri to see if they wanted to join us and they did, so we met at Big Daddy's. We'd not had a chance to really sit and talk with Mike & Gerri, just two on two since we've met them. I've chatted with them but Randy hadn't had a chance. Most of our interactions have been at the clubhouse where it's a riot of craziness. It was nice to sit and chat and learn more about each other. I think this is going to be a great friendship!

This afternoon we relaxed at home, watching the Olympics and napping. :) Isn't that what you're supposed to do after a big lunch?

This evening was the weekly Ice Cream Social, but with a little twist. Of course we're still celebrating Mardi Gras, so there needed to be some kind of chaos, right? After 175 or so folks got their ice cream, it was time for karaoke!! :) Oh, boy did we have fun.

Kelli & Chuck, the couple who run the karaoke, did a great job of getting folks involved. There were individual singers, but they also got the women up to sing "Queen of the House" which is to the tune of "King of the Road." What a hoot!

Then the guys got up and sang "King of the Road." We did this in honor of our Mardi Gras King & Queen.

It's too bad I don't have video of some of the performances. Our King & Queen sang (and I use that term "sing" very loosely) "I Got You, Babe" and "You're the One That I Want." I don't think America's Got Talent will be calling any time soon. :)

We do have some talent in the park, though. Larry & Glenda are wonderful bluegrass singers.

And Dotty Beaver is amazing; she is one of our oldest residents and she's got more energy than most of us.

Even the line dancing group showed their stuff.

I even got up and sang a couple of songs. When Randy & I first started dating, Anne Murray's "You Needed Me" was popular. Its words always reminded me of Randy. I always thought it would be great to someday sing it for him. And tonight I was able to! I think it touched him. I also sang Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight, " one of my favorites.

For one of the last songs of the night, a group sang "Dixie," the anthem of the south.

It was a fun night. More laughter than you know what to do with. We have found such a great group of friends here and enjoy spending time with them. Such a great life.

Tomorrow we'll have more Mardi Gras fun. It just never stops! :)

Until the next time . . .

Such a Nice Day

Boy, was it COLD when I got up this morning at 6:10 to go do laundry! The thermometer read 31 degrees!! I had to let the truck run for more than 10 minutes to defrost the ice off the windows - and that was after it took me tugging the doors open using both hands!!

And I read recently that 49 of our 50 states have snow at this time - what the heck is that about? Very strange winter we're having.

Anyway, once the truck warmed up, I went to the laundry room and got to work. I wanted to be done around 8am so we could join the folks at the clubhouse for our Mardi Gras breakfast. Everything went according to plan, and I was done right around 8:00. Gotta love it when a plan comes together. :)

After breakfast, we came home and watched some of the Olympics (I just love having a DVR!!). Then, we went out and ran some errands.

Back home, we were kicking back and were pleasantly surprised to have Darrell & Judy stop by. Darrell had sent out an email earlier in the day suggesting that several of us meet up in Maine this summer. At first, I figured we wouldn't be joining them because we had decided to sit still for a year. Well, just about the time that thought cleared my brain, the next one leaped in - let's do it! It didn't take Randy & I but a few minutes to decide, yeah, we're in. This group of folks are wonderful and we have so much fun with them that I just couldn't see missing out on this opportunity to spend more time with them. So, mid-summer, we'll be taking a little trip to Maine for a week. This is gonna be fun!

We ended our day at a Valentine's Dinner at church. This is a fundraiser for the children's ministry. In addition to dinner, there is a talent show. We sat with Susan & Jim. Susan is one of the leaders of the women's ministry and also goes to Curves. That's where I met her. She is a wonderful lady. Some of the gals at Bible study encouraged me to participate in the show, so I did. I played the dulcimer and sang. It was pretty well-received, which was nice. The members of this church are so loving and kind. :)

Dinner was held in the Christian Center
The theme
Susan & Jim
Emeritus Pastor John yodeled - and it was great!
This family sang "Do, A Deer" and the kids were great. The little girl then sang "On the Good Ship Lollipop" all by herself!
All in all, we had a nice, mellow day. Productive, but not crazy. I kinda like it that way. :)

Until the next time . . .

And So It Begins . . .

Well, we didn't wake up to snow, but boy did it rain! I almost wished it was snow, well not really, but this rain has been vicious this year. It rained for most of the day, but we did get a little hint of spring this morning when this little guy came to visit our bird feeder. Isn't he a beauty?

Once again, we spent the day just hanging out at home, watching TV, playing on the computer, and cross stitching. I know it sounds like we're boring, but we love our life!

Tonight our park's Mardi Gras events began. Thankfully, the rain stopped in time for us to walk over to the clubhouse for dinner and entertainment. Dinner was scheduled for 5:45pm, so we figured we'd go over about 5:15 so we could get seats with friends. Well, we walked in the door and saw this!

We were shocked! Typically folks show up early for meals, but usually a half hour before start time is plenty of time to get seated. These folks must have gotten there at least 45 minutes early! Fortunately, Mike & Gerri thought of us and saved us seats at their table. Not sure what we would have done otherwise. Thanks, guys!

We had a blast!! Dinner was great, as usual. Larry, the cook, always does a fabulous job feeding us. We're grateful for him and his crew.

After dinner, the entertainment began. I had a small part in kicking it off by sharing the history of the King cake and the colors of Mardi Gras. You know I just had to get in front of that microphone! :)

Then, it was time for our King & Queen to make their appearance. Here they come!

From there it was just comedic skits, singing sensations, the Vintage Vagabonds, and dancing. We even had a dance line going to "When the Saints Go Marching In" with our King & Queen in the lead!

Here are some of my favorite people:

Gerri & Mike
Judy & Darrell
Pat & Dick
And not a bad picture of us!
I think we're going to have some fun as the Mardi Gras festivities continue!

I'll leave you with a picture that perfectly says how I feel about this weather . . .

Until the next time . . .
