Odds And Ends

Well here I am again, Can't believe two weeks have been gone by again. This will be a this and that entry.

We are still in Florida, and Spring is finally here. Some people are leaving wanting to be home for Easter.
The weather is awesome, as it should have been two months ago. We are staying until the end of April sometime. Our young friend Carolyn, is like a grand-daughter to us, will be coming to see us on April 12 for her school break. She is twelve and we are making plans to where to take. Of course Disney is first on the list, as she has never been there. We will enjoy her visit.

It has been a cold winter here this year. Orange and strawberry crops have weathered badly. Sea mammals like the manatee needed rescuing, along with sea turtles. The fishermen have also had a rough season. The water is still at 60 degrees, they are hoping now that the temp has warmed up to the 80's, the water will also.. The unemployed is still a major problem here in Florida. There was a ad in the paper last week looking for 200 construction workers, over 5000 applied. Pretty sad ,now that we snowbirds
are leaving, there will be more layoffs.
