Brrr!!!! Yeah, Nick’s in Florida, he has his work done, and it’s time to play. It was 80 degrees the other day, it was in the 30s last night, and today the high is only supposed to be 61 degrees!
And don’t even start telling me how cold it is up in Ohio or Michigan or wherever you are. I don’t care! I’m cold, and it’s all about me! The sooner you understand that, the better off we’ll all be. 🙂
Santa figured that since it was cooling off here in Florida, he’d stop at our place early, because who knows how bad it could get by Christmas?
Miss Terry has never been happy with the microwave/convection oven in our Winnebago motorhome. It only heats to 450 degrees, and she couldn’t broil anything with it. So Santa brought her an 1800 watt Breville Smart Oven toaster oven. It toasts, broils, and does all kinds of neat things I don’t understand. But I do know that the results will be delicious, and that’s all that matters to me.
Terry had to do some rearranging to make it fit on her kitchen counter, but it all worked out, and it looks good sitting there, doesn’t it?
Yesterday evening, Bob and Rita Meredith had us over to their place at Breezy Oaks for a shrimp boil. Oh my, talk about a feast! The shrimp were huge, and absolutely wonderful. We had a good time visiting with Bob and Rita, and our friends Al Hesselbart and John Culp. When it comes to RVing, John is an icon. He is still living fulltime in the same 1947 Westwood travel trailer he bought new! Yes, that’s right, John has kept the same RV for 64 years! The darned thing is old enough to draw Social Security! And he’s still waiting to get into the shop for repairs he was promised under the factory warranty! They tell John the parts should come in any time now. 🙂
Have you made any plans for your 2012 travels? If you have, and if those plans include a visit to Glacier National Park or the Smoky Mountains, two websites you may find useful are Hiking Glacier and Hiking The Smokys. The websites include information on hiking trails, with trail descriptions, maps, elevation profiles and more to make your outdoor adventures more fun, and to help you get the most out of your visit.
But we have to get through the winter before we can start our summer adventures right? And what better way to spend a cold winter night than curling up with a good book. Especially an e-book. If you are looking for a good international thriller to read, check out Michael Meyers’ Covert Dreams. It’s a great read, fast paced, it will keep your attention, and I really like Mike’s writing style.
Poor old Bad Nick has been sitting here staring at me for a couple of weeks now, just waiting to get to the keyboard, so I finally gave in and let him do his thing, and he has a brand new Bad Nick Blog titled Dumb and Dumber. Check it out and leave a comment.
