Happy Post Thanksgiving!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We’ve enjoyed a lovely holiday so far. One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the left over food in the fridge. I love not having to cook for a few days.
Yesterday we spent an enjoyable evening in Palm Coast at the grand opening of a new business there. Our friend Anne Marshall has just opened “Lifethyme Cafe and Wellness”. Anne is particularly special to us because she treated Lisa’s frozen shoulder back to health. Put simply, Anne is a miracle worker. We wish her a happy and successful future.
Visit her website here and when you’re in Palm Coast or nearby – stop in and say hi.
The Holidays are Upon Us!
Yes, it’s that time of year. Hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving. We decided to start decorating during the Gator game. Our tree this year is totally different than in the past. It’s actually a tree used to display decorations – we customized it to accommodate our bigger decorations and added the lights. Ain’t it perty?

And the Fun Begins….Women’s Basketball!
We attended the Florida Women’s basketball first game of the season on Saturday. For those that don’t know, Coach Butler tore her achilles tendon and is now in a boot – she used a stool with wheels the entire game. I don’t think she missed a beat. By the way, the Florida women won the game and we saw some exciting play from our freshmen. Next game is going to be a tough one against FSU on Tuesday. If you can, attend the game and give the team your support.
Alberta was making the rounds and stopped to pose with M. Sorry for the blur – it’s a camera phone for goodness sake! I’ll try to do better next time.
Another Successful and Scary Halloween
Dead Donna and I posed together as Halloween festivities commenced. Donna outdid herself this year – scared lots of children and adults! Her timing was impeccable most of the night – many fell down as they raced away from her – no injuries, thank goodness.
Our neighbor “N” and one of her friends – they had a party across the street. N was hilarious as the “Sweeping Witch”. My scar amost fell off from laughing so hard.

Just another nightly view.
We have audio playing as “trick or treaters” come into the yard. Unfortunately, the video had to be cut off before the witch cackles – more kids were coming and we had to quickly take up of our positions for the next fright!
It was a busy and fun night. We gave out over 100 bags of candy and scared quite a lot if kids. We do sincerely apologize to those children we made cry and those who fell down trying to run away. And, we promise that next year – YOU’LL CRY MORE AND RUN FASTER! BOOOOOOOOO!
