That sounds like our weather report. It poured yesterday evening and all night. Now the temps are supposed to start dropping and we will be in for our usual January COLD weather. Yes folks, despite what the Chamber of Commerce tells you, mid Florida gets quite cool in January. December was unusually warm this year and now I think we are going to pay the price for that beautiful December. We do not get snow but 40 degrees is very common in January and a few days with 30 degrees are possible. If you come to Florida in January be sure to bring a few sweaters. I know that in colder places like Minnesota 30's & 40's seem warm but here in Florida that is COLD. We can always tell the snow-birds from the year round people in January. Year round people are in long pants and have at least a sweater if not a warm coat on. The snow-birds walk around in shorts & T-shirts and freeze!
Patsy, any trouble getting on here?
The Super Bowl is always worth watching. Even though our team is not represented.
The best SB party I had was when the Giants were playing and won! It was in NJ at our house. I had TV's set up in the Living & dining rooms. It was the game where the Buffalo kicker missed the final attempt at a field goal thereby assuring the Giants victory. The crowd (all giant fans) went wild. That was January 27 1991. A friend gave me a watch which commemorates that game. Date & score around the outside of the face.
We are being told that it is because of "EL NINO". and we can expect this kind of weather for a few months. By the way. The temperature dropped quite a bit also. As long as we do not freeze or drown we can live with it! (Editing on here is not easy. They will not allow me to correct the spelling of lightning or highlight with color.) Oh well, I can still post (so far).
Question for anyone. Do planes ever fly in or out of Floyd Bennett Field anymore? Does the Navy still have rights there?
Yes, The NYPD Red series reads quite fast
When we used to take day trips on the weekend, we went (among other places) to New Hope & Lahaska PA. There was a restaurant that served onion soup with the top completely over covered with melted cheese. It was out of this world. When we lived on 12th Street, at first the only heat was a coal stove in the kitchen. My mother made some homemade soups that simmered all day on that coal stove. She would put it out for supper with fresh bread and butter an what a meal that made. Sometimes it was chicken, other times veggies & beef. Nothing better in the winter then hot soup!!!.
Hi Patsy, No, I am still waiting for Private Paris. Our Librarian only orders Large Print versions and she does not expect it until the 2nd week in March. I will be one of the 1st on the list. Have not read any of Sparks books but I may try one. Heard good things about him. I know that when See Me came out there was a large wait list.
Weather here is clear but mornings are windy and cold. Afternoons still windy but a little warmer. AM Temps have been in the 40's which is cold for here. My son in law went to S. Jersey for the Polar Bear swim. My daughter said that the water was 37 degrees but the air was 50 so they did not feel too bad when they came out of the water. My son in law does it every year. My daughter just goes to watch! Carol & I went on a bus trip from here to the Tampa Downs Race Track. Carol had one horse win but most of mine came in second and I had bet them to win. Oh Well, we had a good time and Carol broke even including lunch. Her winning horse paid $29.00 on a $2.00 dollar bet. (That is all we bet, $2) We stay for 6 races and get back in time to freshen up for dinner. Last nights choices of entree's were Rack of Lamb, Shrimp Scampi and an Orange something chicken dish.
Hello, On Sunday I went to our Sunday Brunch. I had a Mimosa for starters, then instead of my usual Omelet I had eggs over medium. I added corned beef hash but skipped the sausage. Hot coffee served by our waiter, The dessert choices were many but I settled for a little Chocolate Ice Cream. The choices on the Sunday Buffet Brunch are numerous. It was a beautiful day. Went to Church at 1:30 right here in our Rec Room. Carol stayed home. She has not been feeling well. She even skipped BINGO Sunday afternoon. The Omelet I usually get on Sunday (made fresh right in front of you) is eggs of course with Ham, Onion,, Tomato & Cheese.There are several different peppers and spinach leaves Then there is a carving station. It varies. Sometimes Beef or Lamb or Ham. The meat choices on the buffet are Bacon, Sausage, Ham, Hash etc:. They also have various entrees. I am too heavy already so I take it easy on the Buffet.
Weather here has finally changed. High 70's in the afternoon. Still cool in the AM but it warms up fast.
Patsy, I looked at the book cover synopsis on a few Sparks books and did not care much for what I read. I am not into romance novels. I like Cops & Robbers and WWII stories.
I see our plea for some of our old blog buddies has so far brought no results. Oh well, we tried!
