Today on the way home I was coming around a corner at 35 mph and hit a patch of Black Ice. I ended up with the rear end off the side of the road for just a bit before I managed to get it back under control right before the SUV, that was coming at me, hit me head on. The look on the guys face as we went by each other will stick in my mind for a very long time!No Comments »

Well my week end plans are shot. The weather man warned us that we were in for some snow, but since when have I ever listened to him? It has been snowing since the early morning hours and it is still coming down hard and it is past dinner time. We must have at least 6 inches by now. I went out and brushed off the car and the truck earlier, but now it is in need of another, oh well – there is always tomorrow. Nothing much else to do in this type of weather, sigh………………..No Comments »
Anyone who knows anything about the game of golf and lives near or on the east coast knows that there are many Myrtle Beach Resorts that have some awesome golf packages to offer. I prefer the North Myrtle Beach area and have been going there for as long as I can remember. My whole family is into golfing and it is a sport that anyone can play along with being a great way for a family to spend good times together doing. Now that the winter weather is going to be breaking I’m itching to get out on the greens and I hope that I can squeeze a game into this weekend’s plans.
My folks have indicated that they would like to be able to have as many of the family, that can manage it, to take a long weekend some time this summer at one of the Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resorts and get some golfing in together. I’m sure that we could go online and find some good deals with plenty advance notice. I just Googled “Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resort” and came up with nice ideas and options that I’d like to discuss over this Sunday’s Super Bowl’s game and family dinner.
With most of us getting some money back from our taxes I would think many of us should be able to pull it off. It sounds like a wonderful idea that I hope we can put together. The Avista Resort is one of the Myrtle Beach Resort links that popped up that has gotten my vote so far. And it’s in the North part of Myrtle Beach, now how about that!No Comments »

This New Year’s eve, just like the last three New Year’s Eve, I will be in Ft Meyers, Florida. On Dec 31th, I will be picked up at my home by a limousine service. Then I will meet Robert, my boyfriend of ten years, inside Jet Blue Airlines, at the ticket window in Logan Airport, Boston. We will board the 6:00 PM flight and land 3 hours later in sunny Ft. Myers Florida. We will be greeted at the airport by my sister and her husband. They will then drive us to my condo, after a short drink they will leave, and we will retire for the night.
The next evening, before I leave my house, I will set my home security alarm from Security choice before going out for our New Year’s Eve dinner. There’s a special place that we go each year called “Siesta Resort.” We go there to have dinner and attend the New Year’s Eve Party. It’s a lot of fun. All our old Florida friends and my family bring in the New Year together. It’s a real special way to bring in the New Year.No Comments »
Since my sister has been told not to drive until her doctor gives her the go ahead to start driving again, I have been helping her with getting back and forth to various doctor appointments and some of the meetings that she attends each month with various civic organizations that she has gotten involved with. It has given us the opportunity to do some sisterly bonding which has been good for the both of us and I am glad to help her in any way that I can. Both of sisters are always doing things for me and I rarely get the opportunity to return the favors, so this is a great way for me to feel better about everything.
Last night I took her to the community center for her monthly Ruritan meeting. This was a big meeting with a good amount of “big-wigs” in attendance so she got herself all “dolled” up for this one. She wore her new tie dye dress that she bought a few months ago and hasn’t had the chance to wear. I was happy to lend her the perfect belt to wear with it to make it look just a bit more fancy with the promise of returning it as soon as possible. This is my favorite belt and I’d hate to lose it.
I just wish that I could have convinced her to wear a different pair of shoes. The ones she wore looked like the shoes that our mother and Aunt Ginny have been wearing since they stopped working and didn’t have to wear high heels anymore. I understand that comfort shoes for women are important and all and I know that they have a great variety of comfortable shoes for men and women that don’t look like “old people” shoes. In fact today I sent my sister the link to several “comfortable shoe” sites that I have found that I want her to seriously take a look at and hopefully order from in the future.No Comments »
