What a great weekend....
We had such a great, fun packed weekend that the pictures hardly do it justice. I sold a slew of stuff at Ruban Rouge's Garage sale and am now set for Linda's Fried Green Tomatoes Crop which, along with Creep Over and Winter Retreat, is one of my most favorite of the ones she has each year (www.hilltopmemories.com).
Around five on Sat., E and I headed into town for the Gavel and Grape festival. One thing I love about living in a small town surrounded by other small towns is the fact there are festivals galore. This is one we had missed our first year living here and, I treated with some of my loot from the garage sale. We roamed the three blocks that Tarpon Springs had blocked off in our historic downtown area, had a couple of frosty cold ones, listened to music by Ron and the Classics (very good group by the way), looked at all the cool cars in the car show and E took my picture by the boat of my dreams...do you think that boat makes my butt look big? hmmmmmmmm?
We stopped by Linda's favorite place here, The Zone, had a nice long talk with a very neat gal behind the bar and met two other couples who also love Snookers and Miss Vickies. We found out one of our favorite guitar players locally performs at Miss V's on Friday's from 5-9 so may head out there one Friday for a bit of local talent and some good food.
Sunday, we headed to Suzie's and Justin's to meet up with them and Buddy for a road trip to Homosassa. What a beautiful area. I had gone swimming with the manatee there a couple of years ago at Ginnie's Paradise Found crop and had fallen in love with the area. After hitting the flea market where I found some wonderful tiny thread spools and some handles for altered things, we headed to MacRae's (?) for the Cobia fish tournament weigh in. The winning fish was over 38 lbs. Wow. E kept thinking of all the ways he could cook up that much fish. We hit The Freezer bar and grill up the street for great wings and boiled shrimp and then headed home. I needed yesterday just to catch my breath.
Thanks so much to everyone who has sent me b'day wishes on facebook, through emails, at KnKclub.com and at A Cherry on the Top and to JoAnne (my friend since we were 14) who phoned. You all have made this day so special and a girl only turns 62 once, right? (29 and 39 multiple times which is allowed). Have a great day.
