12/28/13 Saturday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)
As I was walking this morning, I saw 2 sandhill cranes in the nearby marsh waving their wings in a sort of dance. Special to see.
This morning we studied our route to Betty and Denny’s (where we’ll store our RV for most of January) and our trip to Marathon (in the car) to the condo. It took a lot of effort to redirect MS Streets and Trips away from the Florida Turnpike and onto I-95. Sheesh. Did the Florida State people have a little in with the GPS people, to make sure we all travel on their toll road? The rest of my morning was dedicated to the blog.
After lunch John and I considered our budget for next year, then we got together with Naomi and Phil, playing our favorite card game “13”. A good time was had by all. Especially Trish and John who each won! On our way back to Miss Zanzibar we saw 3 sandhill cranes gathered on the road, then another 2 flew over the marsh to join them. They then seemed to be “yelling” in crane language at the first 3.
Just supper and the normal TV stuff for our evening. Oh, yeah, our microwave when blank/black like it did a week ago. Back then we found out that an extension cord gave it power and later pushing the right buttons got it to work…until now.
