08 April 2006 | We are Still in the Everglades
I haven't taken the time to work on the blogs lately so here goes. Last weekend I flew to Salem-Winston, NC to visit my long time and best friend Kathy Nelson. She was in NC for business and we had a blast getting caught up and shopping (of course). We had not had a chance to have some friendship time since her husband Randy passed away in Oct. We both enjoyed talking and remembering the great times we all had in our youth. I also had very bad news when I found out my friend Joy Cook from work had passed away after a valiant fight with brain cancer. I miss her every day and hope her family is doing OK.
As for Steve and I, we are still plugging away at Richards house trailer. Steve went shark fishing with Joe, Richards neighbor, and wrenced his back so bad on Sunday 4-2-06 that he couldn't work the next day. Not that he had caught a shark, just sitting in the boat all day. Anyway, he is doing better and we hope to be done with Richards house by mid April. We are both getting anxious to start up our trip again. Plus, I miss the girls and need to get to Charleston. We hope to be there by June. Then a trip home to see Mom and everyone.
We also got exciting news that Erin, Steves daughter is going to have a baby boy towards the later part of Oct. So I guess I know where we will be then. Also the grandkids are coming down and spending a week with us on the boat at the end of July. All four of them. Austen and Savahanna who are nine and belong to Erin. Joel, who is 7 and Mia\
who is 5 and this is Mia's first trip. We are very excited that they will be staying with us. We should be in Wash D.C. by then and staying in the Solomons Island, which is in the Chesepeke Bay. Well I need to get to work, hope everyone is doing well. See you soon.
