Steve is back and our visit to Broken Board Ranch is coming to an end. For now. Looking forward to heading out and seeing the country but will miss so much about this area. For sure, my friend Pandora coming over to say hello every morning! 🐎
In IL, the girls and Steve and Grandma Gayle met up and had a quick visit. Meanwhile back at the ranch, I read a little bit while enjoying a sunny, breezy 73 degree day! In the evening we went to Danny and Viv’s HOG chapter Christmas party where in a departure from normal – I won two things 👍👍 Looking forward to the return of Mr Wallin later today 🥰
Mt Dora hosts Art in the Alley once a month and Viv makes necklaces and earrings (which are beautiful, by the way) so we went there for the evening to sell her wares. I am in L♥️VE with this town!! Reminds me of the Hayward WI of my yoot!! Looking forward to Steve getting back Sunday!! It’s going to be in the 80s so he will be thrilled 👍
Not much news from here in FL. Took the opportunity to rearrange, relocate, and purge. Steve had lunch with his Mom. Driving the Jeep up north is probably not going to be a highlight of the trip for him, but getting that time with Ma was worth it, I’m sure. I’d drive 5000 miles in a blizzard to be able to sit across from my Mom surrounded by Christmas decorations!! Everybody have a wonderful weekend! Weekends in December are always filled with fun things to do! 🎅🏻🌲
Met a baby cow that was born when we got here (on the ranch of friends of Danny and Viv.) Went back to Juniper Spring. Made it to the big spring! Worth the walk.
Steve left to take the Jeep to Chicago. It was a long first day – traffic, rain, snow in the mountains. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was 82 and sunny here… 🙏 for safe travels today.
Gorgeous day for a ride. Central Florida is just beautiful. Went to Juniper Springs in the Ocala National Forest and had just enough time there to see I want to go back for more! We didn’t get as far back on the trail to see the “big spring.” It was getting close to dusk and I, for one, did not want to encounter a bear or coyote or panther on an alligator on the path 😳
Lazy day…. Went to a cowboy church which was really cute. What makes it a cowboy church was my question…. The chapel is actually in the stable of a working ranch, it has a cowboy theme, and the Pastor is a real cowboy. And had been struck by lightning 4 times! We enjoyed his message and the hospitality. Everybody have a good week!
Viv had a party for Danny’s 60th and allowed me and Mitch to piggyback! Roasted a pig (Jes don’t look) and drank enough to kill a small mammal 😳 A great group of people to celebrate with!
Slow news day. Just a few pics and a video of the percussion band. A little rhythm and a lot of whiskey….￼
