12/24/13 Tuesday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)
Because we knew today was predicted to be 20 degrees cooler than the previous days and have had the time to whittle down the food in our refrigerator, I was determined to get it defrosted and cleaned this morning. Naturally, I slept in until 8:30 am! I did manage to get the usual breakfast stuff and this project done by noon, though. After lunch we stepped outside to realize that is was much cooler than it had seemed with all that sunshine. So we shut off the air conditioners and got our windows open. It had also gotten warm inside because I was running the washer/dryer this morning too.
We visited with Bill/Susan for a wee bit then, while John was cleaning out a storage area in the rig’s “basement”, I went to Naomi/Bill’s place to get our chairs. When I arrived I noticed their water was overflowing (was filling the fresh water tank and forgot it was still going) and pretty soon we were visiting. John came and was leaving with the chairs when Phil spotted him, so we got him to come join us.
Late in the afternoon John went to help Lou get set up for his concert tonight. We got our food moved back into the fridge, having waited for the refrigerator to cool down first. Then I got busy making our hard boiled eggs for the potluck tomorrow. Keeping them in the fridge overnight makes them easier to shell, a tip from my sister-in-law, Karen.
For supper John grilled sausages, then our wonderful friends Greg and Marcia stopped by. They’d just arrived here today after traveling from Red Bay AL in 2 days. We walked with them to the clubhouse then split – they to head on home to their site while we went to the clubhouse for Lou’s Christmas Eve concert. They considered coming to the concert but were just plain exhausted from their last few days collecting their newly repaired motorcycle and RV, then driving down here.
Lou Renshaw puts on a great concert – lots of videos, audience participation as well as his guitar playing and singing. We and our friends (Naomi/Phil, Bill/Susan and Larry/Gail) had a great time. It sure put us in the Christmas spirit. This was a major sacrifice for Lou and June too, because they had to pack up all their stage equipment and head their rig for home 80 miles away still tonight, so they could be with their family on Christmas.
Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!
