Merry Christmas


I hope everybody has a very Merry Christmas.

We were supposed to be up to Brenda’s for Christmas but Wednesday night she called and said that their was a storm coming through with a lot of snow so we decided to stay here for Christmas. Dulse was disappointed so we are going up Monday after the holiday traffic is over. We will stay for a couple of days.

We stayed here and Jerry is busy sheetrocking. He has started on the taping now. We will have a quite dinner with the two of us. His brother Bob that was here went back up to NY for the holidays. His sister Joan and husband are going to some friends so we will be by ourselves.

The weather has been quite cold at night but during the days it gets up into the high 60’s. I’d like to see some more warmer weather. I shouldn’t complain because up home there are getting a lot colder weather.

Well, stay warm and enjoy the

In Florida AT Last

Well, we finally made it back to Florida. We got here on the 14th. I haven’t had a chance to post a blog since my birthday on the 7th of Dec.

On the 10th of Dec was our 50th wedding Anniversary. Well, we didn’t plan to do anything special. We went out to dinner for our usually Friday night fish fry with Terry, Jackie, Charlie and Ann.

On Saturday we planned to go up to Turning Stone with Terry and Jackie for a couple of hours and then stop somewhere for dinner. Well, on the way home they took us to the VFW hall in Richfield Springs. When we got there we were surprised with a party put on by all the kids. JJ, Eric with son Dolan, Pam with her two daughters Arica and Amber, Brenda with Dulce, Tracy, Jeff and Donna were all there. We were really surprised because that is the first time they have been all together in a couple of years.

We had all of our friends there. After we went home all the kids came to the house. Lois also spent the night.

Pam, Arica, Amber, Eric and Dolan had an early flight out the next morning so they left that night to stay in motel in town. Tracy, JJ and Lois left the next day. JJ was getting a flight from Rochester so he stayed Sunday night at Tracy’s. We left Sunday morning with Brenda and Dulce and spent the night at Brenda’s. We left the next morning for Florida. We stayed in Stark, Florida Monday night and got to Belleview around 10:00 on Tuesday. Since then we have been quite busy cleaning and getting things organized. Jerry started sheetrocking this week. He has only the bedroom wall left to do.

Tomorrow we leave to spend Christmas with Brenda and Dulce in Richmond. We will be back Monday night.

Happy Birthday to Me


Today is my birthday (Flo). I was born on Pearl Harbor Day. Dec 7th 1941. My mother had me at home. She said that the doctor was more interested in listening to the radio than what was happening to her. Jerry says that it is an easy date for him to remember because they usually have something on TV or in the papers about it.

Well, I hope everybody has a good day.

We Have Snow!!

Haven’t been doing much lately. Just getting stuff ready for Florida. We will have a truck load. We plan on leaving this next Sunday.

This morning when I got up it was snowing out. It has been snowing off and on all day. I took this picture about 4:00.


I just hope we don’t get to much more.

Jerry went up to Dolgeville to visit his brother Bruce. He had surgery last Friday on some limp nodes that he had removed. Don’t know yet how much chemo he will have to have. Right now he doesn’t plan on going to Florida this year. Jerry’s brother Bob hasn’t left for Florida yet either. I don’t know yet when he plans on leaving. He usually is down there by the middle of Nov. Jerry’s brother Mac is doing pretty good. He has to go back in hospital to have more surgery on tendons on his knee.

Yesterday we went to a party for the town of Stark to celebrate the retirement of a friend that worked on the town council. There were a lot of our friends there. It was nice to see everybody before we leave for Florida.

Well, we have been having our share of rain. I would rather have all this rain than snow.

On the way up to Rochester Thursday morning we stopped for about 45 minutes at Turning Stone Casino at Vernon, NY. Here are some pictures of their Christmas decorations.





We had a nice small Thanksgiving with daughter Tracy. There was just the three of us with plenty of food.


In the afternoon we went over to her friends home that we have known for years. Mary Ellen and Steve with their two sons Cameron and Jared, plus her parents Flo and Ken.




We went out to breakfast with Tracy the next morning. We left about 11:00 to come back home. When we got here Lois was here so we went out to dinner at Lombardo’s. We were joined by Terry and Jackie for the fish fry.

Saturday Lois, Jerry and I went to Arlene and Gary’s to pick them up for the trip to Barry and Sally’s so we could talk over plans for our cruise in Jan. Jerry went for the day but he isn’t going on cruise with us. Lois and I will share a cabin. There was Barry's’ brother and wife and Gary’s cousin and wife also there. We discussed plans for the cruise and then had a light lunch.

We went out to dinner that night with Lois and the next morning she drove home.

Tuesday, I went to Albany airport to pick up Jerry’s niece Donna. She flew in from Colorado to see how here house in coming along. She stayed here for the night and the rest of week she will stay at her brothers.

It’s getting closer to Florida.
