HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!-Chilly Day Today!!

Well its been another wonderful day in Avon Park. I have a new routine..get up go on the 'ant' hunt..then have coffee, and puter time. Rick sprayed all outside today and I have to say the count is down today. (As you all know I'm a counter) now we have thingys inside and spray outside..its hard to find a place to put the stuff where the fur kids can't get into it. It was a gorgeous hot sunny day. Deb, Dee and I made a quick run to Wally World because it was someone's birthday~and we needed a cake and what not. We picked up lunch on the way home for the guys.

We played a few games of shuffle board with Dee, Ken and Deb this afternoon (Jim was busy getting his high speed installed)..then we all went for a swim and Jim joined us.

We rushed back to our rvs showered and dressed and it was off to pizza night at the club house. After supper we came back home and we skyped with Tracey Todd and the grands Hannah and Caitlin for a bit. It was so nice to see them all and have a chat. The wonders of technology.

At 7pm Debbie and Ken, and Dee and Jim arrived and we surprised Ken with a birthday cake, ice cream and some cards. Happy birthday to our new friend Kenny!! May you have many many more.

We sat around talking, laughing and just being our usual crazy selves.

And now for the title explanation! Chilly sure was -every time I opened the freezer to get ice from the ice maker for our drinks I got a chill. Don't ya just all feel sorry for me. Back home they are experiencing a major snow storm tonight and freezing temps. I almost feel guilty. Tune in tomorrow for our latest antics!

Be Safe out there!

Home is where you park it
"May your day be filled with blessings like the sun that lights the sky~and may you always have the courage to spread your wings and fly"

“Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay, some laugh with you, some at you, some didn't come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would stay and help clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the ones who didn't even make the mess: ) How true this is!!! “


  1. That is a beautiful pool! looks like a good party and a yummy cake!!

    Mike and Dee

  2. I have to say, that pool does look really nice, and I'm not even much of a "pool person", unless of course the water is almost like soup.
    None of this, "refreshing dip" cr*p", meaning the water is just too darned cold.
    You'd better slow down, you're going to use up all the fun.

  3. You look like you are having way too much fun! It's snowing a bit inch is all today. Maybe we'll make it through this winter without too much :)

  4. Looks like some serious drinking going on over there. Beautiful pool. Can you believe your swimming outdoors in January? A little pizza always will hit the spot and cake too. Happy Birthday to your friend Ken.

  5. just an notation for you all: the pool is 84F and the drinking was a set up lol

  6. Looks like a fun day, you set up the drinking? You mean nobody actually had a drink?? hmmph.

  7. I like the 3 amigos picture. I will take whatever you three are drinking!
    Pass on a Happy Birthday to Ken from us!

  8. Thanks for the party! We had a good time. It's been so fun being with you guys.

  9. Great looking birthday cake, candle and the pool looks pretty nice too!

  10. Great photos of an obviously wonderful day!

    Cheers to the Tres Amigas!

  11. A high of 46 degrees here today and YOU are KILLING me with pool pictures! LOL!
    Looks like you and Rick are having a wonderful time! Enjoy!

  12. Hey, no fair !! We are freezing our butts here in Carlsbad, NM. Last couple of nights have been in the low 20's. We toured the cavern today and it was totally worth all the freezing ... LOL.
    Take care ... TnT
