Time at Tyndall

How the time has flown.  We have been fighting colds, and checking the obits, just to be sure there was a reason to get out of bed.  Think that we have finally made it to the land of living again.

We arrived here at Tyndall  well over a week ago.  Got to spend some time with Kevin and Arlene.  We managed to take in several movies,  Secretariat and Red.  Both were very good, funny how the same actor, John Malkovich, was in both of them.  We actually seen Red as a second choice the first day, being as we got our theaters mixed up, so the next day we made up for it.  But the heat and humidity was so high the movies were a good place to be.

Friday brought some good news, long time friends, who spend their summers in Maine, winters at home in Florida, were making the seven hours trip to spend a few days with us.  I fixed dinner and asked Arlene and Kevin, to join us.  We had a great time, finished up the evening teaching them hand and foot.  After breakfast at the clubhouse, the next day, the guys were off to play golf and the girls went shopping at the Pier Park Shops.

And I just realized that I did not take one picture of Dick and Jane!

The next few days were not any thing to write about, sneeze, cough, cough and then did it all over again. Yesterday felt much better, did some laundry and few other “round-to-its”.  Which leads me to today, and it was pretty much a wasted day.  It rained most of the day, Chuck had to have his blood work done and it was a bit of a hassle finding some place to do it.  Got my hair cut and that about does it. 

Friday we are moving west about 50 miles to the park that Arlene an Kevin are working at for a few days.  The weather is suppose to cooperate so am looking forward to seeing that area.

Till next time, Life is Good.

I tried not to smile about the whole cold thing, but the comment about checking the obits before deciding to get out of bed put me over the top. Hope you are feeling better!
