I really don't have much to share, but figured I should post something. And you know when your mother points out that you haven't blogged lately, you gotta get to it.
So, we've continued with the routine of life. But, yesterday we actually got out and took a drive. It was a pretty, sunny day; good for an outing.
We headed south on SR 77 toward Panama City. The idea was to get some breakfast and then ride around a bit. We'd been to Panama City Beach – yes, those are two different towns – but not to Panama City. We found breakfast at Golden Corral and enjoyed their buffet. Sufficiently stuffed, we continued our journey.
I realized that we were close to Bay Medical Center where one of our friends was hospitalized. Grady has been very ill since before Christmas with respiratory issues and, unfortunately, he was taken back to the hospital a couple of weeks ago with breathing problems and then one of his lungs collapsed. So, he's sedated while his lung heals. Belinda, his wife, is keeping vigil daily so I texted Belinda asking her if we could visit. She said yes, so that was our next stop. We spent a little less than an hour chatting with Belinda while Grady slept. :) Belinda is a strong woman and her faith in God and His plan for them is something to watch. We had a good visit.
After we left the hospital, we didn't know what we wanted to do. We are not “beach people” so hanging out at the beach wasn't an option. I would take a chair and a book and sit at the edge of the water and enjoy, but that is not Randy's thing at all. So we decided to drive and see where the road took us.
The road took us through a beautiful neighborhood, lined with palm trees and Spanish moss.
The homes were an eclectic mix of large brick homes to small beachy bungalows. It was a lovely drive.
We got back home about 2pm, so it was a nice day out.
That's it from the Florida panhandle. Hope all is well in your world. Until the next time . . .
