Busy morning at MacDill AFB starting with breakfast, shower, shave, packing the camper, signing out, filling up with fresh water and emptying the holding tanks. A trip across the base for church, followed by a trip to the commissary for food. One final trip to the class six for a case of beer and off base we went by 12 pm. Destination was Apollo Beach to visit Helen’s classmate Betty and her husband Bob Russell. Last year we had visited the Manatees at the power plant that is just two miles from their house. I had no problems finding their home. We had a good visit with them. They live in a nice community. Bob and Betty are both retired school teachers from the North Conway area of New Hampshire. Bob is a great sports guy with many stories to recount. He is a tall fellow and naturally coached basketball for many years. Betty, I think was a math teacher. In any case, it is always a pleasure to sit and talk to the both of them.
Betty, Bob and Helen
Next on the list of visits was Jeanette Lozier who lives a short distance down in Venice. We called and Jeanette had plans, but we will contact her tomorrow morning and meet.
The weather today was cloudy, but considerably warmer, even now at 8:30 pm it is still 64 degrees. Every inch that we move south improves the temperature by a few degrees. Whoopee!
I called Rod Legendre tonight and we will be seeing him and Pam tomorrow afternoon. He also lives here on the outskirts Venice bordering North Port. We are looking forward to tomorrow’s visits
