Twenty Lashes With A Wet Noodle!!

Williston, FL.

66 deg. partly cloudy, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Not as warm. Highs around 80. North winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts to around 25 mph.

Twenty lashes with a wet noodle!!!!! That's what Jim needs, but I'll get to that a little later!!!

Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to Wildwood yesterday morning. But, before they could go, they had to stop and get CLT a drink of 87 octane so he could make the trip. It's about 48 miles over there and CLT said that it took him almost an hour to get to their first destination, which was a Russell Stover Candy Store that Jim and Linda found years ago.

CLT says that It's a huge store and from the pictures that Jim took, it looks like it's full of wall to wall candy! ; )

They have candy boxed for all kinds of occasions from Valentines Day to Halloween to Christmas.

This picture below shows part of a wall where the sugar free candy is displayed and where Linda spent most of the time there, picking out varieties that she likes. ; )

After they had finished at the candy store CLT took them to a Denny's Diner to grab a bite to eat.

After eating, they went to Donna and Monte's house where they spent an enjoyable afternoon visiting and catching up on what's been happening since they saw them this last winter.

Now, this is why Jim needs twenty lashes with a wet noodle!! Yep, even though Jim had his camera along, he forgot to get a new picture of Donna and Monte!! : (   However, I did find this picture of them that he took last winter, and I guess it'll do.  ; )

Before they left, Donna and Monte gave Jim and Linda a whole bunch of canned goods and other food that they had gotten through some kind of program. They had more than they could use and gave them a whole bunch of good stuff. : )

Thanks, Donna and Monte. : )

Then, after h and h, (hugs and handshakes), CLT brought them back here. It was close to 5:00 by the time CLT pulled up in front of me and by the time Jim and Linda had all the candy and food put away, they were getting hungry. So, they heated up some of the pre-cooked pork patties that Donna and Monte had given them. Both said that the patties were pretty good and made for a nice quick meal.

Today, Jim and Linda's friend Barb and her friend are coming to see me. They should be here around noon or a little after. Linda is going to have a casserole ready for lunch when they get here.

Did you know that throughout history pork has been the most widely eaten meat in the world, and still is today?
