February 27th Monday - Hot and humid 84 degrees - showers off and on
It certainly is typical Florida weather - Saturday when we went to the Hare Scramble it was cold, and we huddled around Scott's smoker grill and tarps that he had put up to keep warm while we ate his wonderful meal. He smoked an eight pound boneless pork roast, sweet potatoes and his famous head cabbage. Lou states that cabbage is worth his trip to Florida. Everything tasted so good. I think Scott told us that he cooked/smoked the roast for six hours, the cabbage for four hours and the potatoes for two hours. Everything was so tender and moist and a delight to eat. We all cleaned the platters clean. Once we had cleaned up after the meal, we gathered up our belongings and Scott and Greg got on the four-wheeler and guided our two cars back to the highway so we could travel back home. There were six hundred registered people attending the Hare Scramble and it was an experience in its self and I did not get pictures to post. Sorry. It was a very dusty dirty area. Actually it all took place in a huge cow pasture and when the little kids came in and took off their helmets their faces were black from the dust and dirt.
Tonight Scott and Sue took Lou and I out for dinner in Englewood, FL and a fascinating place it was, we went early and we were glad we did, as when we left the restaurant at 7:00 pm, there was a line out to the parking lot of folks waiting to get into be seated. I do not know the name of the place, I do know that we tried to eat there one other time, and there was over an hour wait and Scott and Sue have eaten there several times since and have become friends with the owner so wanted to make sure we had a chance to eat there. Sue and Scott have a time share in St. Croit and many of the recipes that are prepared here are also prepared on the Island I had to take pictures of the food that Lou and I ordered along with the desserts that we all had. The food was wonderful and it was a great evening.
I am amazed at the change in both of my grandkids, Greg has grown up so much since we saw him last year, his voice has matured and he is so enjoyable to talk to, just wish I had more time to spend with him. Melanie has a new baby that is nine months old and being a new mommy has made a new person in her also, no longer the troubled teenager, now a loving and caring mother with goals in mind for herself. God indeed does answer prayers and guides us in trying times.
After a very nice weekend, it will be time to move on to MacDill Air Force Base tomorrow. Lou called today and we were told, we were welcomed to drycamp until an opening was available. Thankfully, I was able to get all laundry caught up and the RV cleaned. I remember from last year internet service will be very very limited there, so I probably will not be posting on a regular basis from here on.
