Hey Gator

then had some friends over for dinner ...

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

The way we live - - many of the people who are following our adventures are RVers so they will understand – for the rest of you it might be time to try to explain. The RV lifestyle is one of camaraderie – it is impossible to arrive at an RV park, find a spot and park your rig without meeting at least one person (unless you sneak in at some special time – like meal time). It is not a lifestyle for a “Grump”.
MK and some of her friends decided to welcome in the New Year with a ‘progressive dinner party’.
The D, D & I trio were the first stop – appetizers = shish kebobs on the barbeque, wine and munchies on the patio – great weather.
MK & I were next on the route – salad = a big bowl of ‘green leaves’ and smaller bowls with ‘chopped up stuff ’ like peppers, onions, carrots. The celery was in glasses with ice – to be used to stir the Bloody Marys (there was also water and diet pop – and someone brought her own wine!)
Next stop the home of J and C (our Alaska traveling buds) where we had - the main course = lasagna with garlic bread – I am sure there was some beverage but I brought my ‘celery’ dipped in…ah, tomato juice.
Final food stop, M and E had the – DESSERT TABLE = pies, chocolate cake, cookies, a jello fruit salad (love it!), coffee (uh – skip that it wouldn’t go with the celery).
Then back the J and C’s for some cards, saw the ball drop, then home to bed - - - all in all a great way to spend New Year’s Eve.

Hope everyone has a great, New Year ...........

UPS Delivers................. at least, I think that is one of their slogans. I saw an article about UPS drivers using "alternate" forms of transportation - - and here in our RV Resort they do indeed have a different delivery system:

it saves having the big, brown truck running around the park - probably makes it easier for the driver as well. They deliver the packages to a container trailer in a parking lot near the front of the Resort and then load up the smaller trailer for in park delivery - - - really a cool, Yule idea

November to remember

Well - it has been a November - finally all of the political ads are over - - now if only the 'newsies' would stop harping on every negative thing - we're here in Florida, surrounded by friends and we keep looking down at the grass and not up at the roots !!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all
