Not Much Happening

DeBary, FL.

54 deg. clear, SE wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Sunny in the morning then becoming partly sunny. Highs in the mid 70s. East winds 5 to 10 mph becoming southeast 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon.
Not much been happening the last few days. Laura, Ashley and Anna stopped by for awhile Saturday and then yesterday, They stopped by to pick up Linda and take her to Marv and Inez's house in DeLand where they made gingerbread houses.
Jim hasn't been doing a whole lot. The mosquitoes have been really bad and have made it difficult to be outside unless you want to cover yourself with bug spray. He has however, taken bicycle rides and has managed to visit with the neighbors some.
Oh, he has been fooling around with trip plans for our proposed trip out West. The way it looks now, We'll leave Florida the first part of February, but as you know, it's all written in pencil and he's got that big eraser, so there's a good chance it will change again. ; )
Today or tomorrow, Laura wants to go and see the new Sherlock Holmes movie and has asked Linda and Jim to go along. I'm sure Linda will go, but I doubt if Jim will.
He's not a big fan of movie theaters.
Like I said, not much happening around here.
Did you know that before settling on the name of Tiny Tim for his character in "A Christmas Carol," three other alliterative names were considered by Charles Dickens? They were Little Larry, Puny Pete, and Small Sam.

    I'd vote for Puny Pete--has a real nice ring to it!

  2. I thought you were just kidding about the other names for Tiny Tim so I Googled it. You aren't kidding. I learn something new everyday! Merry Christmas.
