We are off to another fine day here in paradise and the golfers are scurrying for a spot on the golf course. You have to be careful on the streets with all the golf carts flying around.
Yesterday I was talking about the after Christmas crowd arriving and sure enough we had 5 units arrive in the afternoon. Today we have already had a couple, with more on the way. Some readers were surprised that people would arrive so late. Let me tell you how that works. Dad says, 'let's head south and beat the cold weather'. Mom say's 'we need to stay for Christmas because the grandkids can't open their presents without us'. Dad responds 'but that will probably mean driving in some snow or ice to get south'. Mom who won't be driving says 'what's a little ice or snow'. And dad who knows what's best for him agrees on the after Christmas departure. Dad will usually say 'never again' when he arrives with white knuckles from playing in the weather on the trip down, but those are hollow words and the process will be repeated next year.
This morning we have already emptied the holding tanks and laid down a new course of bug spray around Mel. We are now ready to venture out and see what can be done about enjoying the good life.
