Actually, we're almost halfway through March and it's been almost a month since I last posted a blog entry. Sitting in one place for any length of time isn't good for blogging. I just don't have any incentive!
Once again, we haven't done much worth blogging. Just the same old, same old routine.
However, last week we got out of our recliners and headed to Lower Alabama for a few days. We left Monday morning, pointed the truck westward, and off we went. We stopped at Cracker Barrel in Crestview, FL (just about an hour from Bonifay) to fortify us for the long drive ahead. Well, two and a half hours IS long when you've sat in one place for almost six months!!
Our next stop was Darrell & Judy's where we had a grand reunion with them, Mike & Peggy and Dick & Pat. Judy made her famous lasagna and Peggy and Pat contributed salad and dessert. It was a fabulous afternoon. Of course, it didn't any time to pick up right where we left off the last time we were together; whenever that was.
After dinner we went to the Beacham Hotel, run by our friend, Robbin. Robbin is so gracious, she opens her home up to us whenever we want to visit, allowing us to come and go as we need. She is a great friend.
Tuesday Randy lazed about at Robbin's while I got my nails done and met Robbin for lunch. Then, we both hung out at Robbin's for the afternoon until it was time for another meal at Jim & Ellie's. Once again there were a bunch of us and another good time was had by all.
Wednesday we met Darrell & Judy and Mike & Peggy in beautiful downtown Fairhope at Panini Pete's for some scrumptious muffaletta paninis. Have you noticed the trend of our eating whenever we get together with these folks??? We needed to get out of there before we couldn't fit in the truck for the drive home!
It was a great visit and we want to do it one more time before we head north in June.
Since we got back, I've been a bit under the weather with a nasty cold. It just won't let go. But, we're back in the groove (or is it a rut? Hmmmm . . .) of our routine. Hard to believe we have just about two and a half months before we hitch up and move on. This will be the longest we've sat in one place in our eight and a half years on the road. But, it's been good for the bank account!
Not sure when I'll check back in, but until then . . . Enjoy.
