Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I know I'm not a Black Friday shopper. So those of you that are, I hope you get all the bargains out there.

We are staying at our daughter Brenda's house. Here is a picture of Brenda with Sammy, one of her dogs.

Yesterday we had dinner about 2:00. Our daughter Brenda has an adopted daughter from Guatemala. Dulce is three years old now and smart as a whip. Above is a picture of her.

Jerry just getting done with dinner.

Our son Jeff has a son Rylee that is in the Navy at Norfolk, VA. He came over to join us for dinner. After dinner, Rylee played a couple of games with Dulce.

Before Rylee left he gave Dulce one of his hats. Here is Dulce wearing Rylee's hat.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday. Flo

Tuesday Nov 24

Well, we finally are ready to start out on our trip to florida. We are going only to Richmond, Va today to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter Brenda. We will continue on to Florida on monday. On the way down we travel I-88 to I-8I south. We have to go from New York through Penn. then Maryland, West Va and into Virginia. Through most of VA we go on secondry roads. We travel 522 down through the central part of Va. We like to see the back country of the state. It is very pretty driving through the country. Here are some pictures. the first is a picture of a wall the someone put up to divide their property from their neighbors. Not to friendly neighbors. This is a scene along the back country roads of Va. Very pretty. These pigs have been in the same spot the last couple of years that we have been driving this route.

We got to our daughters Tuesday night. Wednesday we mostly just relaxed and Jerry did so odd jobs around her house. Flo

She will be coming down to visit us in Florida sometime. Sunday we are going up to our daughter Tracys' place in Rochester to see her before we go south. Coming back Monday to pack for the south. We will be spending Thanksgiving at our daughter Brenda in Virginia. So long for now. Flo

How do you like my new header? I think it is pretty. It was taken last year in Florida at the place we are staying at. We do a lot of walking around the ponds there.

The reason we like to go south in the winter is because we don't like the snow anymore.

Here is a picture of Jerry snowblowing our driveway. Now our son Jeff will have the fun of doing the snowblowing.

Have a good day!

Well, we decided to leave home on Tuesday, Nov 24th to go to our daughters in Richmond,VA for Thanksgiving. We will stay there until probably the 29th or 30th. We have to be in Ocala at the condo we are renting on the 1st of Dec. We have been busy trying to get everything set for our departure. One thing we don't have to worry about leaving our home empty because our son Jeff and his wife will be here to take care of things. They are staying here will they build their home. They have the outside mostly finished so this winter they will be working on the inside. Yesterday since it was veterans day our friends had the day of so we went to a Turning Stone, a casino in upstate New York. We all had fun but none of us were lucky. We stopped at a BBQ place in Utica that is called Piggy Pats. The meals were very good.
