I had cooked some party mix up and a nice casserole of lazy man's cabbage rolls (quick and easy and I will include the recipes)..so we loaded everything in the car and headed to their place.
We spent a nice afternoon visiting, and we had a combo supper-Kit made a nice salmon dinner, with alfredo linguini, and salad, brocolli, and asparagus. I popped the lazy man's cabbage rolls into the over and we also had that. For desert it was chocolate valentine cake yum.

We visited until bedtime out on their Lanai by the pool. There was alot of gum flapping going on I tell you and many 'remember whens'.

The furkids had free run of the place and they also enjoyed their visit. Tucker is still having some issues but I think it is getting somewhat better. We will keep him on his rice and chicken until his bm's are back to normal. Other than this issue he is truly his regular goofy self and very active.
This morning my wonderful brother in law was up and out and back with coffe for us before we even got out of bed. What a wonderful surprise.
Here are some morning pictures taken from their dock, they live on a canal.

This morning we visited some more,having our coffee out on the lanai...eventually I finally made myself gather up our things - get packed up and ready to roll back to our Rv resort. It was sure hard to leave as I had not seen my sister (my only sibling and only 9.5 mos older than me)..since 2008. After hugs all around a few times, and some tears between her and I we finally managed to ourselves get in the car. I promised we would be back to visit the end of this year. Hopefully her health continues to improve between now and then.
We arrived back at our resort Sable Palms and what did we see out for a walk?
|Both Pictures are through our windshield-tucker & Lill sure thought that was one big dog!|
Now we must get busy and start our cleaning of the MH prepping to head out tomorrow to Port Ritchey as we have friends in Tampa we will visit with on the weekend. From there we're not too sure, we may spend a few extra days in Tampa, and then we plan to head up around the panhandle to the Cedar Keys area. Rick has always wanted to tour up around the panhandle.
Take care all, be safe out there and our next posting will be from our next destination. Until the next time....thanks for stopping by.
