We also have friends that have moved back east from New Mexico. Our old friend Buddy and his sweet wife Di are a few miles west of us here. We haven't seen them so far this year they are being 'care givers' to 'Charlie' a beautiful old blonde Cocker Spaniel, and cannot leave him. We do hope to see them at least for a chat before we leave.
Then South of us will be Dallas and Marian, from Pennsylvania.. We met them during our hitch in the USMC (1956). Dallas and I spent most of our short Corps career together. We married our sweethearts about the same time and lived in the same trailer park. We will get to touch base with them before we leave.

There is something 'sweet' about friends. And with our lifestyle we enjoy them when we can.
Not many miles east of here Are REAL Floridians, Wayne and Juanita. From the time we bought in Tavares, FL until now they have been dear friends. Juanita beat cancer years ago, a bubbly sweetheart. Wayne is a big Teddy Bear. We haven't been able to see them this year. Juanita has a disease she has not been able to whip this time, she does not know us anymore. And we do miss that.
We spent a lot of time together. We traveled to assess the damage after Katrina together. Wayne had raised some money and wanted to see first hand, where it could be best used. We had a fantastic trip together.
Life all the time is real, however, there are times it ain't fun.
But it is a fact, Friends make life SHINE!
Friend Wayne once drove the old stock cars on central Florida Dirt Tracks. I enjoyed the tales.
