Our Tropical Palms Family ReunionOur Tropical Palms Family ReunionOur Tropical Palms Family Reunion

A great way to get around.....
Our days only get better here at the Good Sam RV Rally. We joined Sam & Sandy for breakfast. Almost like early morning at Denny's in Kissimmee. Got a text: Walt & Diane had arrived at the RV Rally. What a joyous reunion - the six faithful comrades usually together in the South had now reunited in the North. Hail, Hail - the gang's all here! What a great day! Together again. Too good to be true but it was....just like a miracle. What a big difference a little sunshine with great friends around makes in changing one's opinion of this Rally. From gloom to glory....Hallelujah! We explored some new RV's on display. One of the food stands was cooking a pig on a spit...that was rather pathetic. We completed the morning back in the exhibit hall. Here an obsessed "number watcher" found Cory with their matching number. Will wonders never cease? They both won a T-shirt. Luckeeeee. Then their names were put in a pot for a chance on bigger prizes later in the day. The T-shirt was the only prize Cory won. More than the rest of us. Mr. Lucky still holds true to his name. Lunch took us

Poor Pig
to a delightful Italian restaurant in Syracuse. Diane has told us about a local speciality: chicken riggies - a must try. They did not disappoint; they were delicious! A definite favorite to add to the plus column. We resumed our normal fellowship routine as in Florida: gathered together in the RV with lively chatter and laughter. It just doesn't get any better. We are just where we want to be! Together, again. As the afternoon ended, we bid a sad farewell to Walt & Diane. Four months and they will be back at Tropical Palms. Sam & Sandy arrive the following month and we show up after the first of the year. We can pick up then where we have now left off. This evening took Sam, Sandy, Cory & myself back to the show grounds for the big entertainment show: Reba McEntire. She was very good. Kind of left Wayne Newton in the dust. Fortunately, our seats were not under a tree so no bird droppings this night. The finale was watching a fireworks display back at the RV. A perfect tribute to honor our wonderful celebration of friendship.
