Where theres No Fools, theres no lack of fools here...!!!

Pictures often speak louder than words...we are having a blast folks..Arch and Anne are still here and Joe and Carolyn decided to stay for another week. Although they did have to move down back in the 'country' as Joe likes to tell it...he does come up to town to visit us...and even though the pool closes at dusk we all received a printed invitation today from Joe to attend a moonlit dip tonight . (We did explain to him when your a tad bit over weight it is no longer called skinny dipping instead its called Chunky Dunking) read as follows:

Polar Plunge
Come "Chunky Dunking" at the Glades pool.
8PM-(Won't scare as many as in the daylight and get home before bedtime.)
Bathing Suits required!!

As you may or may not know we are in a cold snap here tonight and it is going to be a cold one, and the current temp outside is 45F. When we didn't hear from him via our 'country walkie talkie' I buzzed him to tell him it was almost time...he sounded fairly 'hesitant' but we had a printed invitation to this event and there would be no reneging~~ next thing we knew there was a knock on the door.

And hes into the pool

Breaking the law he is..

and its gonna be colder when he gets out

Pretending hes loving it
And hes out!! Brrrrrr

Dressing over a wet bathing suit...yes he did have one on folks

Of course Carolyn Rick Deb and I were there for the big olympic event. I had to take the pictures!!! And of course I took off with his towels and robe when he got out, and made him chase me around the pool in the dark. He kept threatening to throw me in when he caught me..but little did he know "I can run faster scared than he can mad"...Aww Joe your a great sport. My grandma always said "where theres no fools theres no fun"..thanks for stepping into my shoes buddy, as I'm usually wearing the fool shoes. 
We have attended the Hispanic Flea Market on Saturdays, and of course we had a blast on Valentines Day..attended a great dinner and dance here at the resort...

Nope no pics of Rick and I at the I was on the other side of the lens..but I'm sure Joe can scare up one or two...Please be 'kind' Joe...
Ok folks, thanks so much for stopping by...have a super week....

Elaine, Rick Tucker and Lilly


  1. No end to all the fun and that's the way it should be. Got to give Joe a thumbs up for braving that cold water. Have a great week ahead!

  2. good thing there is no law 'against too much fun'!!

  3. Both Kathy and I would probably had Heart Attacks getting into that water. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. it wasn't the getting in that would have been was the getting out!!!! The pool is heated...

  4. It was a great event. I'll try anything once, twice if I liked it the first time. The invite is for participation not laughing. Since that was the first, maybe the park will make it an annual event. :)

    1. It was definitely a great even Joe...we participated..I took pictures and cheered you on...I was pretty scared there for a minute that you were going to catch up with me and pitch me in..thanks for not doing

    2. Dang Elaine, you weren't supposed to mention the heated pool.

  5. Oh that is too funny. So good to see folks having fun, even when they break a few rules! You post brought a smile to my face - and made me consider NOT being such a "rule-follower" all the time.

  6. Too much fun is good for the heart and mind. Keep at it! You are reaping the fun that is due upon retirement.

  7. Those "cold snaps" can be well, refreshing I suppose. Bundle up!

  8. Chunky dunking...that's a new one! It's awfully hard to get out of a heated pool or hot tub when it's cold. I think I would have stayed in!

  9. Almost a Polar Bear dip and all on good fun. Sure can't beat the lifestyle, thats for sure.

  10. There would be no way you would get me in that water, because I know I would have to get out eventually.

  11. Looks like you are doing your job at keeping the 2 fisted drinks for me...We sure do miss that warm weather...It's darn depressing here.

  12. You guy are kinda nutty. But wouldn't ya know it when I was in Florida once, it was May 2000, the nights were so hot that I jumped in the pool in the middle of the night! Then the watch man came....

  13. Poor guy, you should have joined him. Glad you are having fun.

  14. Now there's a man of his word. A good friend to have but boy you guys are mean to poor Joe. Tell him I'm a fan! :-)

  15. I keep telling you, hanging with Joe is going to get you in trouble!!! ;c)

  16. Asking questions are in fact good thing if you are not understanding anything entirely, but this piece of writing gives pleasant understanding
