Happy Tuesday Speakies:
Hoping you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend and are ready to start a new week. Joey Z and my beautiful wife Roe had a very nice vacation some spent with family and the other times on our own. Last Sunday we were treated to dinner by our son Joey and his beautiful wife Elizabeth for some great steaks at a local restaurant. Thanks Kids it was great, love you both. Last Monday we celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and enjoyed a great lunch at the Mission Inn in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida. It's a beautiful golf resort, homes, vacation villas and great restaurants located near the Clermont area of Florida. We enjoyed our cafe luncheon at Nicker's a casual restaurant over looking the golf course. The food and service was tops and I highly recommend it if you are in the area. Check out their website on the Internet.
On Tuesday we took a road trip to Tarpon Springs, Florida, the "Sponge Capital of Florida." Tarpon Springs known for it's Greek heritage is a beautiful town area filled with shops, Greek restaurants, sponge boats and fishing fleets. I had my first Greek taste of their food but ordered the wrong dish, I enjoyed the salad and the two for one Sangria's though. Roe and I took a little tour of the town visiting the many shops and of course by the days end had to have a Greek pastry and coffee. We are planning to return soon after I retire and spend a few days enjoying more of the sites.
We missed not seeing my other son Jeff and his beautiful wife Sam and our grand kids but they could not make it down due to reasons beyond their control. Missed you guys love you too. On Thursday we decided to take in a movie and we both enjoyed the Johnny Depp film "Dark Shadows" a good story with humor added in made for an enjoyable early afternoon. My thoughts on movie theaters will be a topic of tomorrow's post. See I haven't been to the movies since I saw Gladiator years ago and things have changed so tune in tomorrow for my opinion on the subject.
The rest of the week was spent in a relaxing mode and I saw visions of retirement days ahead doing the same. The only bad part was my visit to the emergency room to have my swollen hand checked out and the verdict looks like arthritis, it's a kicker getting old. Have a great day Guys and Dolls.
