Hooray! We have seen the sunJ although it has been cold, it has been bright and sunny – that’s a mood booster for everyoneJ
Marilyn hosted the Book Club on Monday night where we discussed Kristin Hannah’s True Colors. Many good points were made and we had some thought provoking ideas presented. A great night!
Roz hosted our first Sat. Mah Jong play date. Gail, Angel, Roz and I enjoyed several rounds and some very enjoyable conversation. We hope lots more of you will join us for this activity.
Although I’m sure you read the email about our fabulous Valentine’s Driveway Gathering at Catherine’s, I must once again thank her for her wonderful hospitality. Also, thanks to Jim for gifting us with the beautiful yellow roses and chocolate candy. YUM! Welcome to Debbie who is visiting Pete and RosieJ
We welcomed 3 new homeowners to Crestview this week. All are snowbirds for the time being but I have a feeling that after they’ve enjoyed our great activities, weather and fellowship, they’ll be moving down for good.
Health News…..Bill had his 2nd knee replacement on Mon. and was home on Wed. When he and Mary Ann arrived home she asked Bill to wait while she put the dogs outside – she didn’t want them jumping on him. Well, guess what…..he didn’t wait. The walker went off the concrete and onto the rocks and down went Bill. Fortunately he went backwards. So, after several attempts to get him back up, Mary Ann remembered seeing Tony’s door open. So, she went for him and they did get Bill up and into the house. He is doing just great now. Thanks, Tony, for being a neighborhood angelJ
Also, Paula is recovering nicely with her lovely cast on her broken foot. On their last day in Key West she stepped into a hole and turned her foot. Fortunately, she wasn’t in a lot of pain so she waited to see the doc until she returned home. It’s brokenL But, she says she isn’t experiencing any pain. Hooray! And I haven’t signed a cast in agesJ
Barb & Steve’s grandson is back at work. Miracles do happen. The doctors and his family are amazed and grateful! Their son and his family will be down soon for a visit and some well-deserved relaxation!
Of course there are the usual aches and pains throughout the neighborhood but we’re above ground and that’s a good thing.
Last call for the Murder Mystery Dinner on March 7 at 6 pm. Cost is $60 per person for 4 course meal, beer, wine and the interactive play. We have the following going: Fran, Tony, Ann, Sue Ann, Arthur, Tony and Amy, Linda and Dan. If you want to join us call Maria at 352 433 0700 to reserve your spot.
We were all happy to learn that Tombstone and Harriet have been reunited. He was found just a few blocks away in Pennecamp. A resident there called Harriet and told her she’d seen him and the rest is historyJ
