It was not only the sights and the natural things we saw on this trip, it was also the seeing old friends who we have not seen in 50 years and seeing and being with family. Brothers, sisters, in laws, nephews and cousins! It would not have been such a great trip had we not seen these folks and visited for a while. We took many walks through the Florida jungle and one great car trip through Merritt Island Wildlife Preserve. These trips were family oriented. Friends joined us for meals. Super! Left-Click any of these photos to see enlarged. Enjoy!!
Marnie, Mac and Chris played “While You Were Out” while we were in Florida. They completely stripped the old carpet off, repainted the entire room and fixed the electrical outlet. Mac and Marnie built the book cases/shelves under the windows. This is the end result and it was a great surprise! Thank you! (Even Buddy likes it!)

Although all good things eventually come to an end, great memories remain. We took only memories – and some photos – and left only footsteps on this sojourn. Tip your glass – Here’s to the next one! HUGE hugs to all of you and as Bob Hope would say, “Thanks for the memories ….”
