When I got back, Ken was returning from church and we had breakfast. He left again at 8:45 to help set-up for tomorrow's Food Bank. I went to see Neil and Nancy and say good-bye one more time because they were leaving this morning to go to 3 Flags CG near The Villages. All of us were extremely busy during the 9 days they were here and really didn't get to do anything together except visit occasionally in the CG. Then I stopped in with Ernie and Noela to chat and compare our schedules for the next several days.
Back to Wilbur to vacuum and scrub the floors, not my favorite jobs! I was just getting set-up to do some sea glass pictures when Ken returned from the Food Bank and a shopping trip to Wal-Mart. We had lunch and then I started working on my pictures. I was able to complete 5 before cleaning up.
We got a call from Deb Eberly, friends from our life group back home, that have a place in Venice. Her husband, Lloyd, has been going through some health challenges and the Dr. cleared them on Monday evening to head to Florida for 1 week before he starts some treatments back home. They arrived at Punta Gorda airport in Florida on Tuesday evening - Wow! So, they had called to ask if we would join them and Rick and Joyce for dinner at Dockside Grill in Venice at 5:30. No hesitation on our part. We were so excited to see all of them. Rick and Joyce had just returned on Wednesday from a week trip to Las Vegas.
On our way to dinner, Ken and I stopped at Detweilers Market for fruit and veggies, meeting the group at Dockside at 5:30. We had such a delightful time together and so thrilled to see how well Lloyd and Deb were doing.
|Nice place to eat at the base of the main bridge into downtown|
|What a great looking group!!!|
After dinner, we all went to Rick and Joyce's to have more time to visit. Ken and I were back to Wilbur by 9:30 and it was right to bed for this tired couple. It was another special day!
