No complaints here about the wonderful Florida weather... about 28 - 29 deg. C. here today, mix of sun and clouds. It thought about raining for a bit, but it gave up on that.
You know your in Florida, when you keep running into these trucks... this one mind you only has a half load of Florida Oranges on it. Most of the time they are full to the point where some oranges fall off the top of the load when the truck corners! This truck was on his way to the big procesing plant at Lake Wales, owned by Florida Natural.
We were out and about this afternoon on a bit of a tour. We Jeeped it up to Auburndale, which is kind of north west of Winterhaven, about a 40 minute drive for us. We wanted to hit the Auburndale World Market. We were there a few time last winter, and it is a good one.
You had to be under cover today from the sun! It was hot! Nice coming on Friday, as not too many people come out. Tomorrow and Sunday, this isle you see above will be full of people!
I stopped at a vender, and bought a nice new leather (made in the U.S.A.) belt to hold my pants up...not really, but it does hold my iPhone for me! This gal above, is punching in new belt loops, as the belt is made to measure when you buy it! Great deal for $16.00.
You know your in Florida... when you see fresh produce displayed in the pictures above. This is only a very small sample of what you can expect to find at this market! We bought some strawberries tonight, and they were terrific as desert!
We drove back to Frostproof through Winter Haven, as Judy wanted to hit one of her favourite spots to shop, the Bealls Outlet Stores. There are 3 of them in Winter Haven, but we only hit two today. Now, I must admit, I bought a real nice pair of iZod Men's Shorts for $19.00! Love em!
Gwenny is going to need her own iPhone! I took this picture this morning off of Facetime. Gwenny was playing with the Thomas the Train App. She has been able to learn how to use the App without any help from other Humans, so will soon be looking for her own iPad I am sure!
I am not sure what Gwenny found so funny in the picture above, but Charlie was pretty intent looking at something! I was checking his mouth for teeth today, but no signs yet...
Hard to believe, but it was 50 years ago today that I was sitting in my Grade 5 Class in Two Mountains, Quebec, when an announcement on the PA informed us that President Kennedy had been shot! Shots that have probably changed the world.
The Park had all the Flags flying 1/2 way on the pole today in memory of the President.
