Thursday, Jim did take CLT to get his drink of 87 octane on the way to the DeLand Truck Center where he picked up 2 valve stem extensions for my inside dual tires. When he returned, he installed them and now he should be able to check and air up those tires without any problems. : )
Laura called Thursday evening. She was all excited because she and Lindsey had just picked up her new car from the dealership and was wondering if Jim and Linda would like to meet them for coffee someplace and to check out the car!!! Jim suggested Gram's and since that was acceptable to everyone, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over there. When they got there, they found out that Laura had called Marv and Inez and they were coming to Gram's too!!
What a great surprise!!!! Not only did Jim and Linda get to see Laura's new car, they also had a chance to visit with Marv and Inez too!!!!
Her new car is a brand new 2012 Buick. (don't remember the model), and is it ever a beauty!! The reason I know it's a beauty is because yesterday, Laura stopped by here for about an hour on her way to the grocery store. It's got all the gadgets you could think of and it's so shiny that I could see my reflection in it!!! ; )
Maybe Jim can take a photo of it one of these days so I can show it to you.
Oh, they're starting to put up the Christmas decorations here at Highbanks. There's this small "island" of grass and trees in the main road that goes past the end of the street I'm on and every year they put up lots of decorations on it. It's looking real nice and last night they even had it all lit up!! : )
Ashley stopped by for a little while after she got off work yesterday evening. No special reason, just wanted to stop by and visit for awhile.
It's so nice to be in a park so close to Laura, Lindsey and Ashley. When they have a little time, they just pop by for awhile to visit. : )
Did you know that on this date in 1835 - Hans Christian Andersen published his first book of fairy tales?
