The first week of May has already flown bye !!
We've been keeping pleasantly busy all week. Been doing the “ nesting “ thing with the new to us car. Cleaning, waxing and puttering on it. We soaked the interior with leather cleaner/conditioner and it's much more supple now. Washed & waxed the exterior. Noticed some of the side and rear moulding was rather loose so it got removed, cleaned and reinstalled with 3M trim tape. Getting all the previous glues and tape off the trim was a bit** !! It turned out pretty nice. I put some tire shine on the wheels and now it looks pretty ! It has a very slight pull to the right so next week it gets a wheel alignment.
I replaced my overhead couch florescent light. The old one bit the dust. I also replaced the power switch to the Jack Antenna as the old one had a sticking switch.
We got out to hear some great music last Thursday and had a great park dinner. Did some exploring East of Cape Coral and saw the J.P. Franklin COE RV park. Nice !!
The resident egret is visiting again. He doesn't seem too weary of humans and will get within a few feet of us if he sees food ! Such a beautiful bird ! Seeing lots of Ospreys around the island and the dolphin population seems to be doing quite well.
We again are altering our plan on how long we'll be here . Now we're planning on staying thru June. Summer rates are the incentive. We really love this place, can you tell ?
We're having a fish fry tonight. I wonder how many we'll feed this time ??
5-13... Good rain yesterday evening.. cooled it off nicely. Our Caddy went in for a wheel alignment this morning. My friend, Jeff, works at the dealership so I gave him the keys and he drove it in early today. Having the front wheels balanced too. I wonder if they'll find any worn parts..time will tell. I don't think they will because it drives nice and tight.
The weather guessers are calling for evening storms all week. It won't suprise me ! It is the tropics, ya know ??
The clouds rolled in about 5PM and lightning could be seen and thunder rolled in the distance. It wasn't too long when the rain started. A pretty heavy tropical storm for an hour. Of course, Jeff rolled in with the Caddy and made a dash into the rig about this time. He said the car was driving normally and he had done a full inspection and all is well. I'm surprised that it only cost $95 for it all !! Celebrated with a few brews. It was 5 o'clock afterall !!
I took the car for a ride in the morning and got some groceries and am happy to report that the alignment has her running like new.
Friday 5-15 is Ms. Heather's birthday. She shares my philosophy that it's just another year. We'll celebrate it with my doctor appointment Friday afternoon. I did get her a nice card .
Carl is making fish tacos for dinner. Yummy !
We got the touch up paint for the car and all the little scratches have been touched up. The paint matched perfectly. It's not cheap but it works. 2oz of paint and a bottle of 100 mini touch up brushes $34.

Hope you all have a great, safe weekend..
REMEMBER, LIVE YOUR DREAMS AS TIME GOES BY QUICKLY !!
