Ann Posted February 26, 2010 Share Posted February 26, 2010 Well, I got here earlier than usual and thought I'd go ahead and open the windows and let the "AIR" start flowing in until Judy gets here. Finally FRIDAY...my favorite day of the week. This has been a very long, tiring week for me, since I have been working 9 hours a day at my job and then running home and working at home until about midnight. The good news is (other than the fact it's Friday) that my hubby is doing great and progressing much faster than even the doctor expected. The therapist told him yesterday that he can now walk without the assistance of either a walker or a cane and he doesn't have to use the CPM machine anymore. The CPM is the thingie that you put your leg in and it bends your leg for you, to make sure you're getting enough movement in the knee after surgery. Hopefully, he'll be released to drive in 3 more weeks. It's got really cold here last night, down in the 30's. It didn't feel too cold when I went out to my car this morning, since the sun was already shining. I think it's supposed to make 60 degrees today, if we're lucky. Our weatherman said last night that he thinks this will be the last cold front we have for this month. Wow...only two more days in this month, so nothing to get excited about. A couple nights ago, he said we should expect record cool temps here until May. Not what I wanted to hear but that could mean temps in the 70's instead of 80's, which would be fine with me. Judy....I thought of you last night. I was doing some channel surfing and found a show on PBS called Wierd Florida. A strange guy and his boxer travel around the state and visit wierd places. They started out in Key West at Blue Heaven and the rooster graveyard. A couple of stops later and he was at the Coral Castle in Homestead. I switched back to the Olympics before he got to my neck of the woods. So, Judy, do tell us about this rooster graveyard? So, what does everyone have planned for this weekend? I hope you can all find something to so that makes you smile. I'm going to go to the Grant Seafood Festival for a little while tomorrow. We have this every year and it attracts people from all over the place. They have great seafood......fried shrimp, scallops, clam strips, oysters, shrimp & tuna kabobs, linguini w/ clam sauce, Manhattan and New England clam chowder, deviled crabs, raw & steamed oysters, conch fritters, calamari and lobster bisque. They also have a fish dinner and their sweet puppies are to die for. The neat thing is that all the food is cooked and served by community volunteers. They use the money for community scholarships. They have bands all day, crafters and lots of exhibits. The best thing is that admission is free, which makes it nice for families. So...everyone come to Florida for the weekend and we'll eat a lot of seafood. Ann Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
