Groundhog Day and Gin And Syl Come To Visit

Thonotosassa, FL.

57 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Partly cloudy in the morning then mostly cloudy. Highs around 80 near the coast and in the lower 80s inland. East winds around 5 mph becoming northwest in the afternoon.

Happy Groundhog Day!!!!!

Jim and Denny took CLT and headed over to the local Winn-Dixie store yesterday morning. Both, needed to buy a few things that they were out of.

Once back from shopping, Jim helped Linda clean up the inside of me to get ready for Gin and Syl's visit. They called about 1:00 and said that they were on their way. They knew where this park was, so Jim gave them directions of how to find me once they arrived at the park.

I had never met Gin and Syl before but I really liked them and can see why they're Jim and Linda's good friends. They were very interested in my amenities and asked a lot of questions about me while they were talking to Jim and Linda. Of course they talked about other things too, but RVs and Full-timing were the main subjects. ; )

All too soon they had to leave, so after hugs, they headed for Plant City, FL. to get some of that great strawberry shortcake that the town is known for at this time of the year.

I sure hope we meet up again soon, I'd sure like to meet Tawanda, their new motor home.

Jim went over to "happy hour" a 4:00 and then when he came back, cooked a couple burgers on the grill. Linda got chips and stuff out inside of me and then after dinner she worked on her Family Tree Maker program and watched TV with Jim until bedtime. 

Still another great day with great friends. : )

Did you know that the average groundhog is 20 inches long and normally weighs from 12 to 15 pounds? Punxsutawney Phil weighs about 20 pounds and is 22 inches long.


  1. That dang groundhog saw his shadow. 6 more weeks of winter...or is it already spring? It sure feels like it here in Northeast PA!

  2. We enjoyed our visit. It had been a while since we chatted and we always learn a little something new each time. We left Lazydays today and Tawanda's a good ride. :-)

  3. It's always fun to see Gin and Syl. I bet you and Tawanda will become great friends!
