Well, today started out nice and warm and sunny but about 1:00 it clouded over and the wind came up a bit and the temperature dropped to about 63F (17C) – oh well, that is still better than home!

I went over around 11 a.m. and did laundry and again lucked out with only one other person there when I got there and again by the time I was done all the machines were in use. At the Laundromat I was talking to a lady from North Dakota and she was saying they went to Mexico last Monday and waited 2-1/2 hours to come back, guess we just hit a really good day, thank goodness. After I got home and put the clothes away we decided to go out for a while as John wanted to go to the market and get some wire and check out something at Best Buy.

Before the market we went to a place that sells oranges and grapefruits, you can pick your own or buy already picked and today we opted to do the already picked. They had the fruit in huge buckets but we knew we would never get through a bucket of each so we took half a bucket of grapefruit, which was 18 grapefruit, and a half a bucket of oranges (I don’t know how many oranges there were but there were a lot) and all of this for $4. After the market we stopped at Best Buy but John didn’t get anything there then Wal Mart to pick up a few groceries.

When we got back we stopped to see if Brenda and Steve would like some grapefruit and oranges so they took some oranges but can’t eat grapefruit so guess we will be eating grapefruit for breakfast for a few weeks. They asked us to go to Daz Boys for dinner with them but we had picked up a cooked chicken at Wal Mart for dinner – darn as Daz Boys has good pizza.

Our chicken was good and now we are kicking back and going to have a quiet evening of either TV or reading. And so ends another great gift of a day in the sunny south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
