Trip to Frostproof, Florida and Bingo

This morning we awoke at about the same time as usual, Russ 6 am and Patty 8 am. Showers for both of us and then we were on the road headed to Frostproof to visit with my mother for the day. Her campground, Southern Pines was having a Health Fair today so we went over for checks for skin cancer, an adjustment to my neck and shoulders, blood pressure and blood sugar checked.
We then went to Four Seasons at Sun Ray for lunch and the was very good. Russ had country fried steak, Mama had fish and I had pork chops.

From there it was a trip to Wal-Mart for groceries for Mama and then home again. At 5:30 pm we went to the clubhouse for Bingo and hot dogs. I won the first game for $42. No one else in our group won anything tonight. Mama missed out 6 times needing only one number. Better luck next week. We all have done very well at winning this year and we hope that the luck continues with us.

We hit the road about 9:10 pm for Clermont and arrived back at our home on wheels just after 10 pm. Shortly after 11 we were both sound asleep and await tomorrow adventures.

Til next time, have a great day.

Taking an Airboat Ride

I know it has been a while since I last posted but we really have not been doing that much as the weather has been so cold out. We continue to go to Frostproof on Tuesdays to see my mother and I go down again on Fridays to take her out to eat and to the grocery store or wherever she wants to go.
Thursday, February 5th, Nancy Leivas and I went to Arcadia to their Red Hat Queens Council Madi Gras luncheon. I left Thousand Trails just after 6 am and the temperature at that time was 22 degrees and as I traveled south I saw much ice around the orange trees.

Today we decided to take an "Airboat Ride." We went to Boggy Creek Airboat Tours down in Kissimmee and really enjoyed the 30 minute ride. We were able to see many different birds, a bald eagle and an alligator in the reeds. The air was a bit cool but the ride was very delightful and fun. Yes, I would go again and hopefully see more critters.
