Mary Ann and I are enjoying good health. Warm weather here in Florida has been soooooooo delightful. We gather with a select number of our friends here at the park. We separate ourselves from recent migrants from the north until we feel that they're safe to be around. No Covid cases in the park. We are blessed.

We will be hosting our college-age GD and two of her college friends between Christmas and New Year. We will be enjoying our 15 yo grandson in March as he is able to fly down on his own now. He'll be here like 13 days soaking up the sun. Can't wait.

We entertain ourselves with long drives to places we've never been. Most people are wearing masks and social distancing. Met with Carl for a little while. Di and Larry are next.

We finished a 10 day trip to San Antonio and sight seeing in the car to old road haunts. Took a ride down river road and then up through Gruene, TX (Trounced Green), which is a little old historic Western town with a large dance hall. One of our favorite food places is the Gristmill. We didn't stop but let me tell you that the streets were filled with people. If it were not for the facial masks no one would have believed there was a problem in the world with a virus.

Came home last Sunday and if anyone wanted to go to a department store in the mall or other shopping places they would have to be prepared to circle the parking lot looking for a spot to park. It was unbelievable the amount of people shopping.

Sticking around the house and getting some things taken care of while we are home.

Beauty is in the driveway waiting for lazy bones to clean it (outside) and then take it back to storage. Inside is clean, clean, clean, thanks to (Saint) Earlene.

Santa is not going to be good to you, you have DI's ability to spell on the computer.

But, Merry Christmas to you also.

When you are finished with #9, oohing and awing, come down this way.

Did you get Bambi this year?

We're hunkered down south of Victoria on Vancouver Island. Just setting and wondering if and when the pandemic will be over. Just for kicks we went to a little town north of here that goes by the name "Ladysmith".

They annually set to decorating the town and have activities that entice tourists.

We celebrate the birth of Jesus during this season, not the crucifixion , therefore I left out the cross.

Can I interest you in some water front property in Arizona?

Ladysmith looks like a neat little town Dennis. I like the look of the pub and restaurant too. Bet it's really fun under normal circumstances, lots of people. But your supper was a quiet one though, that's still nice.
Snowing in Tennessee too Pa Bull.

I plunged in a small electric heater, when and if it gets in lower 20s for extended period of time I'll turn on the furnace. It sets less than 30 yards from my back door.

Been to Victoria, spent 5 nights there after a cruise one year... in fact one of my blues figures was from a photo taken there. I developed a series of lessons around him.... using the same figure in different techniques, but ALL in watercolor.

Lol. Maybe he is still there.

If the picture was taken along the Inner Harbour Causeway then more than likely he still is. Those busker spots are worth more than the busker makes in a year.

Head South sir, head south. It is going into the 40's here at night and high 50's to low 60's during the day until this cold front goes through.

Barb has taken all that property so don't try selling me something you can't provide.


What about Bambi??
