News Update

We spent the rest of February at The Great Outdoors and left 1 March with Bill and Martha Potteiger for Sarasota, Florida where we attended the Tiffin Buddy Rally.  There were 250 RVs at the rally and 40 new Tiffin RVs on display.  Twenty of the new coaches were sold by Saturday night, 3 March!  We left the rally on Sunday and traveled to Lake Manatee State Park where we camped with Bill and Martha two nights. We returned to Sarasota and the home of John Ringling for a self-guided tour on Monday.  The home, gardens and surrounding buildings are awesome.

Tuesday, Jean and I went to the Lazydays Campground for two nights.  Wednesday, we went to see Steven Ottavanio to have Jean's hearing tested.  She left with new hearing aides, with a remote control to change channels!  John and Pat Cherkowski met us at Steven's place of business and we went to their home in Tarpoon Springs to leave our car for the rest of the day.  John and Pat took us to Tarpoon Springs Sponge Docks where we had a scruptious dinner at a lovely restaurant, thanks to John and Pat.  We returned to the Cherkowski home with Greek goodies to enjoy with our drinks while we visited that evening.

Thursday, we traveled to Mt. Olive Shores North (MOSN) campground in Polk City to spend time with Bucky and Nadine Van Horn.  We broke bread together many times.  We had all we could eat catfish each Friday evening at a local restaurant with friends - Mike, Pat and Sarah Getto joined us Friday 16 March at the restaurant.  Sarah Getto entertained superbly March 15th for over a hundred people and March 17th we attended a St. Pattys Day dinner for over a hundred people, both at Clubhouse 2.  Last evening we went to the church attended by the Van Horns to hear the Down East Boys gospel quartet.

Tomorrow, 20 March, we leave to visit Don and Suzanne Palczynski for a week or so in Homosassa Springs, Florida.  We'll then stop at Don and Brenda Monn's home near Salem, South Carolina and visit for a few days before getting home in early April for hair cuts, doctors appointments and Easter!
