End of the month

Wow, It's been a busy month. We just recently got back from seeing our granddaughter, and as you can imagine, she is just perfect. I guess all grandmothers believe that, well count me in.

It's a big weekend here in Florida, with the Super Bowl game being played here. The Cardinals and the Steelers. Most off our friends down here are from Penn and are big Steeler fans. Seeing that the Pats didn't make the play offs, I will side with the Steelers, and wave my terrible towel.

Along with the football fans, Tampa Bay is filling up with Hollywood celebrates, many which are hosting super bowl parties. No I wasn't invited to any, I fear that they didn't know that we were back in town. Perhaps the next time we leave town on an important weekend coming up, we should put a small ad in the papers. I hate to miss a good party

When home, we have continued to enjoy our Wii game. Bowling has become our favorite. A couple of days ago we bought a Wii Balance board. This fit program will take you through a set of exercise games working balance,and yoga poses.The program keeps track of your progress and offers more difficult challenges as you master the old ones. The program also will calculate your fitness age.

Last night, we and 78 of our closest friends went to the Show Palace Dinner Theatre went to see "The Producers." It is located in Hudson, FL., about one hour from us. This is a Mel Brooks musical. The men in particular seem to like Mel Brooks shows.

Dinner Theatre, Dinner Theater, The Show Palace Dinner Theatre We all enjoyed the show and the food hand both rand's and raves. All in all we had a good time, but stayed up long after our bedtime. LOL

Goodnight for now. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Makenzie Dawn

Today we are in Georgia on the way to see our first grandchild in Indiana. She was born last Monday, weighing in at 7lb 11oz and her name is Makenzie Dawn. Don't you just love that name, well I do anyway. LOL Bob and I had given up the idea of a grandchild long ago. Most people our age have grown grandchildren. Well, we say better late than never.

We traveled I-75 all day to north Georgia and is it cold here. Snow flurries when we went out to dinner tonight. We should have brought some long Johns.

While traveling we saw an 18 wheeler turned upside down in Georgia. Not a pretty sight. We don't know anything about the health of the driver. Better get to bed, we have an early start in the morning.

Happy New Year

We had a grand Christmas and got lotsof gifts, but I'm glad it's over. Next comes the chore of taking down and putting away all those lights and decorations. Lordy, Lordy, where to start. We even put lights all around the top of our golf cart, we were very festive indeed. We had Christmas dinner here with several friends all bring a dish.

After dinner we played with a Wii game that our son had sent us. We played a bowling game and it is awesome! Lots of fun. Three couples including us will be forming a bowling league, now all we need are some shirts.

Today is a really lovely day here, in the 80's with sun and a slight breeze. Tomorrow, friends of ours, Art & Ginny, from long ago will be coming in their RV and will spend the winter here in the park. We are both looking forward to seeing them . Ginny is a very talented craft person.

Well it took me so long to finish this, it is now New Years Day. Here's wishing you all a happy and health New Year. I will try to enter more often. Till we chat again, take care, Dawn
