Touring while we Can!!!

Our friends Larry and Marilyn pulled out last Sunday heading for Disney in Orlando to meet up with their son, daughter in law and dear 3 yr old grandson, who flew in for a week. While we were sad to see them go~I'm happy to report a good time was definitely had by all.
The first of the week involved cleaning and maintenance items around our home on wheels and Rick did manage to get a round of golf in. And of course Happy Hours were still on the schedule.
Thursday we drove into Ft Myers and toured the Edison Ford estates. Very impressive to say the least. 
Edison Estate, he also built a house next door for his guests

Ford Winter Estate-Close friends they had a walk way between their properties

Beautiful grounds 
A verandah to wish for

Hows that for a toad

The roots grow right out of the ground
Friday was spent with Friends down at the big Masters Flea Market..another quite impressive place..if you can't find what you need there then you won't find it anywhere. Interesting to see the place but not one I'd want to frequent on a regular was packed.
Yesterday Rick golfed again, but didn't do well he is having a major problem with his sciatic nerve in his back..he thought golfing might work it out but that was not to be. Today he is pretty sore. He had a long shower, and some medication and is going to sit quiet for the rest of the afternoon.
I have been busy in the dark hours, making jewellery..who knew this would be so much fun. I've been making up some 'breast cancer' design bracelets. I had some requests here in the resort-of those sold I will donate a percentage to the Breast Cancer Association.
It is hard to believe that our winter is almost over. We plan to leave here the end of the month, stop for a visit with good friends in Lee Fl for a few days, then head on over to Hendersonville NC to visit my darling Aunt Kay. From there we will motor to New Bern NC to visit dear friends for a few days. Then head north..stopping in Dinwiddie Va for a day or two to visit an old friend.
I am anxious to get home and see all the kids, and look forward to visitors to our home this summer. Can hardly wait John and Brenda. Humm wondering how they are going to manage a visit without I need to maybe rent a couple and tie them out in our yard? Maybe I could take them down to Broad Leaf Farms not too far from us if they need a fix.
Today was a laze around day, although I did get the laundry all washed and filled my line and my neighbours. It is a warm hot day so I think its time to hit the pool.

Congratulations to Arlene (Leno) on the purchase of her new to her motorhome!!!! I'm thinking we will see a blog soon with all of this news...Can't wait to meet up with you on the road sometime Arlene. May you have many wonderful adventures.
Take care all and stay safe out there..thanks for stopping by.


  1. Know what you mean about having RV visitor's stop, we have had company this weekend.We love the company we have had in the last couple of years and look forward to many more.Hope you guys have a safe trip north we have really enjoys reading about your winter holiday.Sam & Donna...........

  2. I really like you header photo.

    I, too, am having problems with my sciatic nerve. We will be back in Ohio the first of May, so I went ahead made an appointment my doctor. Hopefully, a little PT will do the trick. Hope Rick feels better very fast.

  3. Enjoyed your pictures of the homes. Sounds like it should be a nice trip back home with those planed visits along the way. Hope Ricks Sciatica heals quickly.

  4. I can't believe your time is coming to an end. Seems like the winter flew by! Hope to catch up with you guys next winter.

  5. That Ford Estate is beautiful. Just shows what selling a few old Model T's will do. Good luck to Rick with that Sciatic nerve.

  6. Thanks for taking us along to see the sites.
    Hope Rick gets better soon. I have occasional problem with mine as well and a chiropractic adjustment fixes it up real quick. But then Not everybody does chiropractor either.

  7. Beautiful shots of the Ford Estate. Just lovely grounds. Glad you are taking some down time. More photos of your bead work please. As to Rick, try ice, 10 minutes on every hour.

  8. We really enjoyed your beautiful photos today ... great work !!

    Very sorry to hear Rick is experiencing such pain and discomfort. Hope all is well soon.

    Enjoy your last few weeks before the big trek north.

    Take care ... TnT

  9. Good luck squeezing in everything you can, so much to see, so little time! :c(

  10. Great pictures of the estates. We heard about them when we stayed at Koreshan but never got over to see them. Hope Rick's nerve problem is soon healed. Those are so uncomfortable.

  11. Your trek homeward is filled with many stops along the way. What's not to like about that!

    That was brave of Rick to golf with a view to working out the kinks from a sciatic nerve problem. That is not a fun problem so I hope that resting will clear the pain.

    JB and Brenda may well insist on a horse ride or two to avoid trail detox! You will enjoy your visit with those two. We sure did!

  13. You know darn well that if we were there we would be involved "heavily" in those Happy Hours..You couldn't even have an adult beverage when you visited were "medicated"...Have a safe trip home!!
