Thursday Stu took his motorcycle to the Ft Myers Harley dealer for service. He had noticed a small oil leak in the engine and wanted to get it checked out. While there they found a problem with his emergency brake...it has always slipped out of position, needing frequent adjustment. There was a bolt missing and to fix it meant removing the rear tires. So that got fixed as well as the rocker box gasket that was leaking. He also stopped at PETCO and PetSmart for dog food, poop bags and to pick up Sadie's rabies paperwork which they had left out of our packet last week.
Christmas eve we watched A Christmas Story as well as a special on Christmas lights. As a child one of our traditions was to go out Christmas eve and look at all the lights. The was a decent substitute...at least for me. LOL!
We had a nice Christmas day, the weather was perfect. Hit the mid-70's with lots of sun and little wind. We took several dog walks as well as two nice bicycle rides....great exercise....well, at least for me and Sadie. She LOVES to pull Stu along on his bicycle....not sure how much exercise he's actually getting. LOL! I hope to catch this on video at some point...she really loves it.
We watched a couple more Christmas movies while we waited for 3pm and the dinner at the clubhouse. We chatted with family via phone, text and Facebook...got caught up to to date on all the news. Read wonderful holiday blogs from our friends and caught up on email.
The campground provided the turkey, ham AND lasagna and the residents provided all the rest. What a spread it was...plenty of choices for everyone, even if you were dieting (I think I did pretty well except for not passing up the lasagna). We had a good time chatting with our neighbors here in the park.
Our evening didn't go quite as well. I had an attack of vertigo that put me to bed early and then Stu got another bad sinus headache. We're both better today and we think both were caused by the front that moved through late last night bringing a little rain and today, a LOT of wind and cooler temperatures.
We have no major plans for this week other than Stu installing the replacement inverter that arrived on Friday. They replaced ours with a brand new one. Thank you, Xantrex! I'll do some cleaning inside to get us ready to move to Lakeland and the Lazy Dazy Retreat in Lakeland on Saturday. Thursday is the next day with temperatures back into the 70's. I know we'll take the motorcycles out then for sure!
Hope all our readers had a wonderful Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate or don't this time of year). And sending out wishes for a wonderful 2011 for us all!!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
