Time to update the blog!!

You would think with the weather being so cold the past few days, that I would have had time to update the blog before now.  Well - not so much.  Seems even when we plan on hunkering down due to the cold weather, we find something else to do!

We had a very nice holiday with friends.  Christmas Eve was spent with four other couples.  Our hosts, Shelly and Bob, had moved from the RV park to a private residence near Goethe State Forest. They put on quite a spread for all of us!

After dinner, we played several rounds of golf (the card game).  It seemed like it was non-stop laughs.
Fun times with friends

Surely this is not one of Santa's elves!

Tammy laughing so hard she had to hold her head!

On Christmas Day, we shared a meal up at the clubhouse with about 40 other people.  It was good fellowship, the food was delicious and we left with our bellies full.

I did get some pictures from family back in NC.  That was neat since we weren't there in person....

A few days after Christmas, we got new neighbors!!

Here they come!
Our good friends, Gin and Syl, have bought the RV lot right next to us.  We are so glad!  We have a little secluded area between our lots that we have deemed "Pelican Place".  We have a fire pit that we have put to good use and know that we will have many, many good times here. Welcome friends!

New Year's Eve was fun!  Music, food, drink, friends.  It can't get much better than that!

To all our family and friends, here's to a healthy and happy 2014!!


  1. Look at all those smiles! You sure hang out with a bunch of happy people :)
    Looks like you had a wonderful holiday season. So glad G&S finally got away from Lazy Days so they could go "home", :)

  2. Glad to see the other two Pelicans flew in to celebrate the rest of the holiday. Boy you all seem to have had a great time. Lots of great smiles. I have a feeling Pelican Place may become the local hangout;o)) See you later this winter after it warms up some in your area!!!

  3. Save room for us at Pelican Place! :) What fun you had!

  4. I love the new 'in-between'..Pelican Place. Sounds perfect :-) Hope we can make it over to paddle sometime soon!

  5. Whoop whoop!! Happy New Year! The next couple of months are going to go by real fast cuz ya know, time flies when you're having fun!

  6. Boy looks like a great time with lots of smiles and laughs just as it should be. Didn't know G&S were going to be right next door. What fun you all are going to have! Thanks for sharing it with us.
