Beachy Day




A gang of us from Vi at Lakeside Village took our bus out to a famous (deservedly) restaurant on the beach for breakfast yesterday. After eating too much, we were free to go frolic on the beach. Who am I kidding? The last time I tried to frolic in the surf, it took my wife and two surfers to get me back on dry land! No, Sally and I stayed dry and went out on the fishing pier. There weren’t many fisher-people, probably due to a snappy wind. It was determined to blow hats and anything else under twenty pounds into the surf. Hurricane Igor is a ways off Florida stirring things up right now. Makes for a beautiful day, high winds, hazardous surf, and a glad to be alive mood. Anyone with left-over vacation ought to “come on down”.

If my Penn State is in “Happy Valley”, we are now living in “Happy Sea Coast”.

This may seem kind of odd but I ran across how you mention Betty Anne Nyman and how you met her when you were younger and I'm trying to figure out information about her. I don't know much about the blogging thing but if you could please e-mail me at hoffee01@yahoo.com and tell me what you know about her... I believe that was my grandfather's sister and we have many old pictures of her.

I am 51 and live in Mn. Today I was looking for Senior blogs and discovered yours. What a wonderful way to begin my day! You made me smile and laugh out loud. I will be checking back frequently. Thank you. Wishing you and Sally good health!

It looks like you have not blogged in a while... I am an infrequent blogger, for bloggers like us, I created zeole.com

zeole.com a unified blog for people of a particular place. In zeole.com you target your readers directly based on places.

With zeole.com it is lot easier for readers to find your writings, and so you get lots of comments too!

I am afraid to leave this comment, but need to. I have been doing what I can to identify Floridora. He first posted to my blog when I was in Iraq during a very bad time. He was a great inspiration and I always hoped I could visit him when I came back.

It's been well over a year since his last post. Can anyone give me an update?
