Jan 20th we changed our Tuesday routine. In the morning we went to an executive golf course and only played 9 holes. This was our first time there and after we found it, we enjoyed the course, it was cool in the morning and as we finished up the wind was also picking up. We had tickets for an afternoon matinee show at the South Florida Community College in Avon Park. The show was for Mark & Clark, who are twin brothers and they have a great handle on playing the piano. Through the years they performed on a lot of TV shows and also Las Vegas and Atlantic City. The show that they put on was fantastic and we really enjoyed it. Along with their playing they added a lot of light comedy to the act. Their repertoire included music from the 40’s through the 90’s.
Jan. 17th we went up to Orlando today and visited and played a round of golf with Jon’s sister and brother-in-law. One thing that we must say is we were followed by a group if very rude and uncaring golfers. We were a foursome and were following a foursome that was very slow which we didn’t have a problem with, being retired we are not in a hurry ourselves. Well anyway the three some behind us were teeing off prior to us hitting our second shot and we had golf balls flying all around us. At one point in time we said to them that they hadn’t hit us yet and to try again. We know that someone reported the group in front of us to the ranger and they were told to speed up their play, and then we were told that the ranger had told them this. We said we were more concerned about the people behind us. Back to our visit with Debbie - after golf we went out and had dinner together and just caught up on a lot of news about both of our families. She has a fine young son doing his duty in Iraq with the U.S. Marines and will be there till May, and at the present time he is in the field sleeping in a tent in the cold desert. We do pray for his safety every day and await his safe return. Once again it was a good day.
Jan. 2nd we got together with Craig & Ginny and we went to Lake Placid. What a great day as in town they have over 40 murals painted on the sides of buildings. We walked throughout the town finding the murals and the biggest majority had hidden items painted into them and we had to find the hidden items. Luckily we found a shop and bought a book that showed the location of the murals and a history about each one. We found a great place to eat and plan on going back in the near future.
