People may have thought (and with good reason) that I was likely the latest resident of Royal Palm Beach to loose their driver's license (or their home 😉 ), but thank God that was not the cause of my peddling more than nine miles around the town yesterday. "No, I am not a homeless person loitering in … Continue reading It’s a bunny, it’s a monkey, it’s Susie!
A big, "THANK YOU," Harold, for having me and Dave out to your house and taking us on your boat. It sure was a bunch of fun! We cruised to Harold's spec spot in Lake Okeechobee and then fished for spec. The catfish did not care that we weren't fishing for them. Although I caught … Continue reading Searching for Spec on Lake O
Today was a life-changing day for me. First of all, when my dental hygienist handed me my appointment card six months ago showing my next one on my birthday, I thought, no, I'll call to reschedule that. Well guess what? I never did. And instead of sticking with my first thought yesterday when I got … Continue reading It was a good day to have a good day!
I think it is funny, how I had never heard of Reel Big Fish before exactly one month ago. On that day, December 26, 2016, we - me, Amanda and David - were driving the three hours from Ft. Myers to West Palm when David asked if we wanted to listen to a CD he had. … Continue reading Reel Big Fish at the Fair
I took this video on Christmas day in Ft. Myers. Not a rare sight for those whose yard we were in; however, I was amazed. It was really something to be standing in the middle of! And I couldn't help but think of my grandmother. Ha ha ha!! https://goo.gl/photos/KZ9tThdKWBPEeu2g7
Overdue, this is true - for those who care. For all others, stay tuned. I got something new coming for you too! In Part 1 of Amanda's Visit at Christmas 2016, I left-off on Christmas day in Ft. Myers, and in case you missed it, this has become my favorite part of Christmas - when … Continue reading Amanda’s Visit at Christmas – Part 2
Two and a half weeks ago, the three hour drive north then half hour west seemed like a little bit of a haul. Like a long way to go by myself, but not really. It's just been a while since I last took such a road trip by my lonesome. So I was a bit … Continue reading Amanda’s Visit at Christmas 2016
I was not a happy camper on this early, early morning, and then God reminded me I ought to be.
Exactly a month after Dave's dad passed away, we were at his house, just Dave and I, on a Saturday night. Earlier that day, we had attended a celebration of life for Dave's cousin, Peggy, then went to see the sunset when we "accidentally" wound up going over the bridge on to Sanibel. Since we … Continue reading Saturday, In the Parker – Part Two
Heading west, Dave made an impromptu move, and changing lanes said, "Let's go over to Sanibel and watch the sunset." "I don't care," I said, with no enthusiasm. "Okay good," he responded, as if I had said, "Yeah, wonderful idea!" I sat there amused at first, that he chose to take my "I don't care" … Continue reading The Six-Dollar Sunset
Two memorials in three weeks with the Raffey clan - November was a month of mourning. First, on the 5th, we had a funeral mass for my father-in-law Gus, and then a memorial for Dave's cousin, Peggy, on the 26th. Emotions ran the gamut on that Saturday. Funny and sad were both had at both … Continue reading Saturday, in the Parker – Part One
After twenty years of marriage, my husband and I finally did it – we took our first vacation – just the two of us, without any other agenda, event to attend or person in tow. We choose to go somewhere we have never been and have wanted to check out – the Florida Keys. Marathon, … Continue reading Our First
