Wednesday - April 23, 2008

Today was another sunny, hot, humid day – I hate to complain but I really am looking forward to a bit cooler days! This morning I got the garlic bread made for dinner and did a few odd jobs then this afternoon we went out and got some groceries and fueled up so we are set to go in the morning. I also found time to finish my book – Special Genius by David Baldacci, which was a good book.

About 4:30 we went over for happy hour and there were 4 new people who had come in today, Kay and Bob are from Tucson and Suzanne and Gary are from Florida.

Suzanne, Gary, Betty, Jim & Cookie

We had dinner shortly after 6 and it was awesome – Betty’s gumbo was out of this world, Cookie made a great potato salad and there was lots of garlic bread as both David and I made some. There were cookies, fruit and cheesecake for desert (David made the Cheesecake), so tons of food - everyone went away stuffed, and Betty gave out lots of left over gumbo so we are looking forward to another meal of it.

Rick and Brenda, the couple from Port Elgin, gave Betty this pair of underwear for her patio, sure are a conversation piece! Betty also collects license plates, she has all her customers who give her one sign them and she has them up on the patio rafters – neat!

This little lizard was climbing up the side of Betty's house

We sat out and visited till after 8, so now it is a bit of TV then off to bed. And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
