Looks like “B” is the letter for today’s Blog! There will be some Blue-Light specials for you to see, also. Lulu is requesting that you call her “Beauty Belle” now! She is sooooo vain! We have several things to celebrate...BIG things! First: This big blog is my 500th blog that I have written. OMG! is true. Since 2012, we have taken you to hundreds of places, seen tons of stuff together, introduced you to lots of folks and they to you, shared our very personal details, posted a million photos and made Lulu the famous Star she has always wanted to be. It has all been such an enjoyable experience for both Cory & myself. It would never have happened if you had not been with us the entire time. We are forever grateful for ... read more

Already I can see I’ve made a big mistake. I waited too long to write my so many events have occurred requiring a mega amount of photos to share with all of you. So be it.....just remember to keep scrolling and changing pages until you can’t go any further. We truly appreciate your cooperation. Was that moaning I heard in the background? We’ll begin with the “bet”. Remember the Super Bowl and how Cory & Sam always bet on their teams? This year, Sam drew the low card so Cory had first choice to pick a team. Alrighty! Can you guess which one he picked? Hmmmmm. Yep! He selected the New England Patriots and Sam got Kansas City. Obviously, you know the history here. Cory won so Sam & Sandy had to take us out ... read more

Better late than never, I always say. Just needed a rainy day to catch up with myself and we got it! Today is Tuesday, March 19th and it has rained ALL day! Sleeping will be mesmerizing tonight...the sound of rain on the roof of our RV. It’s like sitting on an old front porch listening to the music the raindrops play as they tap upon the metal roof. Dream on....... We are only a couple days late in wishing all of you a Happy St.Patrick’s Day! We hope your day was happy and lucky! And guess what? Tomorrow is the first day of Spring! Yippee! We knew it would eventually arrive for our family and friends up North. It’s different here in Florida. Hard to decipher between the seasons...they all seem to blend together with sunshine, ... read more

That‘s right, folks! It’s a miracle! Remember how I shared my misery with you about my painful knees? It was my catharsis and you had to hear the gruesome saga. OOWwwwwwwee! I know I have a low pain tolerance.....a paper cut has me looking up the phone number of our local funeral director. Well, you can imagine the horrendous squealing I frequently uttered while trying to hobble around on my excruciating and gut-retching knee knobs. It wasn’t pretty. Lulu tried to help....even singing “Soft Kitty” (from the Big Bang favorite TV show) to me. I even purchased some medical marijuana cream (CBD)and slathered it on both my knees. Nothing worked. Death was close. Even your sympathetic cooing’s offered no improvement...thanks anyway. OOWwwwwwwee! What was I to do? I obtained the name of an orthopedic doctor ... read more

Howdy, Howdy, Howdy! Hope your days are going along smoothly. Ours have had a couple little bumps in them but nothing serious. Of course, I’ll share all the details with you. I can hear you licking your lips. Lulu would be rubbing her hands together....IF she had some! Kim & Jim came over this past Sunday. We decided to walk up to Old Town and have their pizza special at Frogger’s. Actually, we even saw a deceased frog on the sidewalk as we trudged along. Ewwww. Hardly anyone in Frogger’s so we opted out and went next door to Flippers for their pizza. Good choice- good pizza plus I had a coupon for free breadsticks. Coupons are good!! It was fun. Old Town was busy because it was a Latino night. Loud and festive music was ... read more

Busy, Busy, Busy! Yes, we just had a very busy week. Hope you were able to keep with us. When I took role call, most of you responded. For those of you who didn’t, Lulu called out your name for you so you wouldn’t get any red check marks. What a doll she is! We began the week with Cory’s last Cataract surgery. It was a Deja Vu experience. Same place, same Doctor, same surgery.....same o’, same o’. Cory did just fine....just like the first time. Whew! I snapped a photo of his doctor when he was checking on Cory. Dr. Hanzlik’s eyes are closed and that’s because he does so many of these surgeries, he can do them with his eyes shut. That’s the kind of doctor you want! So we are back to the ... read more

I’m struggling to keep up. I don’t multitask as well as I used to. You are just going to have to give me a little leeway.....that’s all I ask. Lulu is very impatient and is beginning to annoy me. So I need your understanding support. Thanks. Earlier this year, Sandy & Sam and us bought annual passes to Disneyworld. They accepted us as Florida residents so our tickets were priced accordingly....not cheap but fair. Three visits to any of their parks will pay for our passes. We get free parking and discounts on souvenirs and food. We have blackout days but that’s ok....we wouldn’t go there at those times anyway. We waited to go until after our cruise. The day we went was when our year began. First choice was The Animal Kingdom. Sam spoke the ... read more

Guess I didn’t get right back on this horse like I planned. Our quiet days are limited. It’s tricky to write the blog while we are living the blog. Stay on that broken time machine cause it will continue to take you through our adventures: past & present. Back in the beginning of February, everyone’s friend here at the park, Joe Rossi, took all of us to the horse races down at the Veranda building. This is a very popular, annual event that he arranges and presents. As you can see from the photos, everyone enjoyed themselves or loose. Cory and I didn’t win any or the horse races but we each won a coupon for a free Flipper’s pizza from the silent auction. Yummy. We’ll use them in April when some of family comes ... read more

Because it took me awhile to blog about our cruise, other important events have been occurring as we speak. I need to share them with you in case you couldn’t be with us at the time. You all have such busy schedules, it becoming difficult to get everyone together with such limited notice. So just pretend you are in a broken time machine that doesn’t know where or when to stop. Lulu is shaking her head (best she can). She thinks I should be doing a better job with organizing these blogs. She’s so critical sometimes. Highlight event: on February 13th, Cory had his first cataract surgery. The eye doctor has his office in Celebration (the town that Disney built) which is just a couple blocks down route 192 from our RV Park. Handy Dandy. However, ... read more

Oh, my....what a fabulous “vacation in a vacation” we just experienced. Even though we had no communication with all of you, you were always right there with us. Just silently cruising in the background. So much to show & tell I don’t even know where or how to begin. You are going to have to be relaxed and patient as we sail along on this mega journey that the four (& 1/2: “Little Lulu) of us: Sam, Sandy, Cory and “moi” enjoyed. Hope you do, too. We arrived at the Port of Miami @ 11:00 AM. We left early morning (very happy you all were prompt) and made a couple stops along the way. Traffic was nasty in Miami but our trusty driver, Bucky, managed to get us where we wanted to go safe and sound. ... read more
