Bring it on!

Temperatures just about hit the 90 Deg. F. range today, which is right up there with the best of them. Certainly the hottest day we have seen anywhere for a while now, kind of nice actually.

This morning Judy and I made our way up to Winter Haven to take in the Church Service at Holy Cross Church. It was good to meet up with a bunch of Friends we have made over the 3 years we have now attended.

This afternoon we decided to get out and about. One thing that we did find different here this year, (take note Tom and Cheryl...) is a new store I have never heard of. It is called Rural King. Now if you are from Canada, just think Canadian Tire, only on a bigger scale.

This store is located in the Wynn Dixie Plaza up in Lake Wales. Last year the location was empty. It was packed with shoppers today, and we found a lot of real neat stuff!

We managed to stay away from bringing home one of the live Chicks above... They had 4 bins of these things! $2.50 each and we saw people buying them. We will be back to this store again...

Next we were off to Lake Wailes Park.

Lake Wailes is right in Lake Wales, but don't ask me why they spell the name of the Lake different than the name of the Town... one of those things I guess. We brought our bicycles with us to tear up the walking/cycling path.

We really like our new bike rack on the back of the Cruze, as you can mount and dismount your bike is seconds... and they don't move one inch while you motor down the highway.

Just a great afternoon for a bike ride...

Yes, there are gators out there in that lake somewhere... we stayed away.

and then someone threw up the "Bat Signal..." (Actually he is just drying his wings, there is a proper name for him, it just escapes me, but they are all over Florida)

This guy above is shopping for dinner...

We decided to go up the Bob Evans Restaurant in Lake Wales for their festive dinner tonight...

They had a real yummy turkey dinner real cheap! Now, I am stuffed.... (ooohhhhhhh, sorry...)

Till tomorrow....


  1. One would imagine that there is a story or two about the two different Lake Wales/Wailes names.

    Ninety degrees is OK in dry desert heat. Is there little or no humidity out your way? Either way, those temps beat anything we presently would face back home.

  2. Enjoy that wether there, just over 80 here in Willis Texas, really loving it too.

  3. Good thing you had a Turkey Dinner last night as they'll all be gone by next weekend with the American Thanksgiving!
