Welcome to our travels and adventures

March Doin’s

What can I say…. again I’m more than a little late with my post. We were away for a few days and my ‘friend’ John mentioned that he has not seen any blog entries lately so I’d better get posting.

1702160 Feb 25 All Dressed Up And No Where To Go FloatMy last blog mentioned our Mardis Gras celebrations and this year was a blast. Barb & I took in one of our favorite parades – Mullet Mates along Mobile Bay, just south of Fairhope. It is the perfect size – about 25 floats and is family oriented so nothing too wild. We also donned costume1702169 Feb 26 Barb And Terry At Clubhouses that Barb put together for the ‘fashion show’ on the Sunday. Our theme was Fantasy Land and Fairy Tales – ok, I know that your mind is conjuring up something more strange – Barb & I were dressed as Olive Oyl & Popeye. The skits and the jokes were fun and everyone had a great time.

March brought us a heavy heart with the passing of Dottie Huyler, a friend we have known at the plantation since we have been staying here. It was sudden and very sad and she was loved by many of us. Barb read the following poem at Dottie’s memorial.

We thought of you with love today

But that is nothing new

We thought about your yesterday

And days before that too.

We think of you in silence,

We often speak your name

All we have are memories

And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake

With which we’ll never part.

God has you in His keeping,

We have you in our hearts

When March comes around, too often we start thinking of pointing the truck north for the trip back home. So you seem to want to plan more events, things that you wanted to do and of course places to eat that you didn’t get to earlier in the winter season. And of course, there are things that have to get done around the rig.

Here is a pictorial representation of some of the stuff we managed to enjoy in March.
