Hello, All!
Once again, hundreds of pictures were lost in a portable hard drive malfunction!  My son, Matthew and I have been brainstorming ways to avoid this type of calamity in the future.  Hopefully, within the next week, I’ll have access to a new memory device and I’ll be backing up
my thousands of pics onto CDs and whatever else we can come up with for safe storage!
     Sorry about the lapse in posting here lately…I should be back in business very soon!
     A little news…
     I have been living and volunteering at Myakka River State Park since November 22nd and I’ll be here until the first of the year.  It is quite beautiful here.  I have managed to post a picture or two on Twitter.  There are alligators a plenty and birds of many varieties, especially cranes, egrets, herons and turkey vultures!  All the volunteers are terrific.  Happy Hour is 4:30-5:30 daily, potluck dinners are on Sundays at 5:30 and most of the time, game night follows.  This week we have a tie breaker game tomorrow night!!!  We play “Pegs & Jokers”.  Sunday, there were 10 of us playing…craziness!
     Thanksgiving was very pleasant.  I spent it with friends here in Florida near Tampa.
     I bought a little Ford Fiesta (her name is “Jammin”) so I’ll be able to flit about while at campgrounds for extended stays without needing to break down camp.  I’ll be having the towing apparatus installed next week and then I get to PRACTICE towing a vehicle behind Van-Go.  No more going in reverse…oh my!  I will definitely have to keep my eyes open for wide turn opportunities and for potential situations that would make it tricky for me to get out of!!   I’ll be getting more exercise when parking at stores because I’ll be WAY away from the front doors…LOL
     A trip to Ecuador and a cruise to the Caribbean are in the works for March and April…woohoo!
     Well, I’m gonna sign off for now….but I’ll be back with plenty of new pictures!!!

Spread the love
