Jo met both Gloria and Sandy when she was 'wintering' here last January and we all had such fun together with Marsha too. Marsha has returned up East but the four of us had lunch yesterday at Tarpon Turtle. While it was too hot to eat outside when we arrived, by the time we left, a nice breeze had picked up. The food, as always, was delightful. And the company...ooh la la! We've made some tentative plans for next Jan/Feb when Jo and Bill are back here in Tarpon Springs. I am going to miss Book Club this month as we will be a the beach so this was a chance to chat with Glo and Sandy before we go.
Speaking of the beach, we need to get our house sitter over for dinner so we can walk him through the pets' idiosyncrasies and those of the pool so he has a pleasant stay and is willing to come back for our Med. cruise as well.
I am trying to book friends in Ft. Myers for lunches to get caught up with them while we are down before all our friends from St. Louis arrive. I want to do Demo Day at Owl and Pussycat (or perhaps even a Sat. class?), meet up with some gal pals, have Ed and Deb out for supper and meet Dewey and Karen at our favorite restaurant in Bonita, Vencenzos. I also want to get down to Bonita Springs to visit with Janet D. I have not seen her store since they moved, Scrapooks, Etc.
Lots of friends are leaving this week...Jo heads back to St. Louis, Janet and Cynthia are returning to Penn. and my friend, Diane, is off on a cruise the end of this week. But it won't be long before we head out ourselves and two days after we return from the beach, I wing my way to Pam's in Wisc. and then we head to CHA for a wonderful reunion with our Cherry Gal Pals from A Cherry on Top online store. And meet up with Elizabeth, owner of Simply Scrappin' Boutique (my other "boss")! And sweet Michele, new owner of Posh Scraps here in Palm Harbor will be there too...yeah!
Hope everyone has a great day!
