Summer is Almost Here.....

Happy spring everybody! The weather down here is summer-like, temperatures have been in the 90's for a couple of weeks. We are desperately in need of rain, though. Wildfires are popping up all over central Florida. Three homes have been destroyed and several acres of forrest. Fortunately, not serious injuries, though.

We are keeping busy. The "Mickey Mamas" had our April "meeting," really a pool party with lots of laughter, food and drink.

April 30th we also finally went to Disney World - it only took us a year and a half to go (it's about 5 miles from the house). We had a really good time.

The same day we went to Disney, we got a call that Bill became a grandfather again! Del & Debbie had a son named Colby William that morning, weighing in at 3 1/2 pounds (6 weeks early). They are all doing well, Debbie is recuperating, and Colby should be able to come home from the hospital within the next couple of weeks. He is beautiful!!

Celebration had the annual pie festival and the exotic car show last month -- both were a huge success. The car show was a benefit for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Next week is the Jazz & Jerk festival in town, that should be a lot of fun, with food from the Jerk Shack and beer from Mulligan's Pub. Mulligan's just opened a few weeks ago, and it has become our new hang-out., It is a genuine Irish pub with Guinness on tap. There is also live music several nights a week. We go with friends and sing along -- it is a great time for all.

My son Nikolaus is graduating from high school next month, so we will be traveling up there for a few days and hopefully we will get to see some of you. Bill's daughter Denise is coming down here the end of the week. It will be nice for Bill to see here and his other grandchildren. Looking forward to seeing anyone who visits down here, so give us a call if you're coming down and we'll have you over for dinner. Take care!
