Congratulations Mike.

With the basket up against the curtain, and from where you normally stand.

That's a 3 pointer.

That should give you a boost to your season stats

So Joe, If I make the commitment early for next year....... is about Nov 1 to about April 15 open? I of course don't want to overstay, so that's why I wanted to keep the time to a reasonable visit.

I'm also thinking about getting a dog this summer, but a lab really doesn't take up a lot of room.

Ah and if i get a girlfriend is it ok if she shows up too?

So if that works for you just fill my name in on the calendar

Hmmm. No response from joe yet..

Well Joe, I would love to take you up on your offer, but looks like I will probably be coming back to Mexico next year..

Seriously now. I have not been to Florida in over 20 years. I'm sure it has changed some since then. It also is such a lure to be able to fly comfortably year round.

Traveling with planes and of course dealing with battery's going through airport security, makes it hard to go anywhere other than driving. I can do enough damage throwing planes in the back of the truck. Who knows what might happen if I tried to pack them up for traveling.

Oh well, that's my ramblings for today.
Bob

Bob, all of our extended stay slots are full for the next two years. However, it would be very possible and enjoyable if you stopped in for a few days and nights if you happened to come down to our neck of the woods. We have two extra bedrooms. Since you're retired you can drive down at your liesure and bring some of your planes. You would really enjoy the field and club down here - especially if you do it while the flying up there is still restricted to in doors.
Joe

I Am headed south towards the end of the month, but my path takes me over to Texas. When these plans were being setup last fall, I had thought about heading down your way to end up in the Keys for some diving. Perhaps next year.

Mike
Yes I do have too much time on my hands. Although I'm not sure I would want to be building while down here. Coming here is the best do nothing vacation there is. I wish that there was a place to fly, but being in the middle of town just does not make it convent. The beach is narrow and busy so that is not an option.

So I will have to make do with just walking the beach, sitting and reading in the sun, then going out for some great food at rediculous cheap prices. And people have asked why I keep coming back to the same place year after year.

Ok I'm rambling again( it is cocktail hour here)

Hmm I thought I felt the earth shake this morning!

I'm thinking now that it was everyone up there shivering from the cold and setting up resonating shock waves.

I'm hoping all that is gone soon, as I am coming home Friday.
