Successful Installation, Visiting With The Illinois Bunch and Time To Head West

Thonotosassa, FL.

62 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. Patchy fog early in the morning. A chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 70s near the coast and in the lower 80s inland. Southeast winds around 5 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of rain 30 percent.

About 10:30, Jim took some garbage to the dumpster and then headed to Denny and Bev's. Denny was just getting ready to start working on installing the new spring air bag, so Jim stayed and helped. He says he couldn't do much but did get tools and stuff for Denny when he needed them.

The installation went much more smoothly than the removal and by a little after 12:00 they were done. : )

While he was over there, Dee Dee stopped by to visit with Linda. They hadn't had much opportunity to talk while we've been here so Linda was glad to see her. : )

After lunch, Jim dumped my tanks, put away the hoses, loaded his bicycle into the back of CLT, took a nap and then about 3:00 he and Linda went over to Denny and Bev's for a visit.

About 4:00, Jim and Denny went over to Gordy's for "happy hour" while Linda stayed and visited with Bev.

When Jim and Linda came back here they ate dinner, (a pork steak cooked on the grill and some asparagus cooked on my stove), then watched TV and relaxed for the rest of the evening.

It's been a short but good visit with the "Illinois Bunch" here at Southern Aire, but now it's time for us to start heading West. There are already plans to stop by and visit with some friends along the way in the panhandle of Florida and in Alabama. And, it's hoped that we'll cross paths with more of Jim and Linda's friends as we make our way across the South. ; )

A Point to Ponder : Why does mineral water that has "trickled through mountains for centuries" go out of date next year?
