Mar 10, 2019 - Car Show, Bingo and Bike Week

Hung out at Old Town in Kissimmee to see the classic cars on display. Lunched at Beef O'Brady and got to play the trivia game we enjoy on Buzztime. Also had yet another Bingo and Taco night and visited Daytona for Bike week. Got our taxes done and had 2 surprises. Got a big refund and paid a penalty for not having compliant health insurance. Crazy since the government won't let me buy compliant insurance as a full time RVr. Getting ready for the FMCA Rally in Perry Georgia. Then shortly thereafter, heading north for our Summer trips.

May 27, 2018 - Country 500 - Day 3

Woke up to rain following rain overnight. That's OK, an easy, slow-moving day inside can always be a good thing. Plus the weather looks like it will clear around showtime. Changes were made to performers and times and stages in preparation for the weather break and delayed start. Resulted in only 3 acts on the main stage today, Tyler Farr, Sugarland, and Toby Keith. Went inside for most of Sugarland and stayed for most of Toby. Even broke down and bought a couple of the OVERPRICED cocktails inside the venue. Late night visiting as we all...

May 26, 2018 - Country 500 - Day 2

Sitting outside and enjoying the weather and some ice water before the festivities begin, and a young lady stops. She asks how long we've been coming. Before you know it, we're being interviewed by Brittany Jones of Spectrum News 13. She was great and her videographer was just as cool. They took tons of pictures. Even went inside the rig for inclement weather discussion and pictures of our coach. Ozzy got a little airtime himself. She let us know when it would air, so we could watch for it. Of course, I told our oldest daughter about it...

May 25, 2018 - Country 500 - Day 1

Quite the leisurely day. Started with a walk but ran out sidewalk, so shortened it to stay safe. Listened to music today from the campsite. Just not big enough names to venture inside the gates and deal with the crowds. Plus, our cocktails were already paid for. Also, it was the first day that the neighbors were out and about, so we had some visiting and catching up to do. Beautiful weather all day though, so that was really nice.

Jan 24, 2018 - Daytona Beach

We have been in Daytona Beach Florida for 2 weeks looking at different condo's in different buildings. The temperature here is below normal but it's still a lot better than Kentucky. We have had our fair share of sea food since we have been here. The good thing about here is we know where we want to eat and also what we want to do. So it's a matter of finding what condo has the things we want like south view is first,most people want ocean view but to me it's boring. The north side of the buildings are always in the shade so that's out. I...

Don't wake me up

Aug 4, 2017 - Daytona Beach

We are enjoying Daytona Beach but we always do. Cassidy wanted to go to Flordia before school started. So last week they found a 2 bedroom condo got airline tickets and were off for a week. We were glad the tropical storm went south of us overall the weather has been great. We have eaten a lot of seafood which we all enjoy. Everyone has been in the ocean at least twice a day for playing and cleansing except Linda. You know it's good for everything that ails you or that's what I think.

Don't wake me up

Feb 7, 2017 - on the beach

The coast of Florida is lined with light houses. In these days of automation and GPS, many of them are obsolete and have fallen into disrepair or disappeared entirely. But the lighthouse at Ponce Inlet, just south of Daytona Beach is a jewel that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. Its color is unique - the same brick red as the bricks that were used in building it. It was run by a staff of three keepers and they and their families lived in separate homes that have also been restored to their former look. Each home functions as...
