"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

Cold, Cold, Clearwater

I can't believe how cold it is here in Clearwater.  Last night it was in the high 20's and today it only reached 36.  We were able to catch up with our friends, Maureen & Douglas, and their family.  They had us over for dinner and Maureen's Dad, Don, joined us. It was great to see him.  On Friday night we had dinner at Frenchy's Cafe, and then to Natalie's soccer game on Saturday morning.  Outdoor soccer, did I mention the temp was only 36, with a stiff breeze. Those poor kids.

It is suppose to warm up this coming week, we are hoping! In the mean time, stay warm.

Hi there! I had no idea this is what you've been 'busy' with!! Sounds so wonderful.... I've read some of the posts you've entered and it looks like you and Keith (no one will get that joke but you, me and Jim!) are having a great time!! Thanks for sharing this with me and I'll definitely check in often to see where you are at on your journey. Take care and thanks for the note. It's always great to hear from you.
Love, Lisa Smiley

Hi Jim and Mary! Sorry that the weather is so cold! Continue south to find the warmth and sunshine! I am dusting off my bikini and can't wait to join you in the Keys! I'll have my long johns on and straw hat along with a sweater jacket over my bikini even if it is 90 degrees...smile. Hugs and kisses. Take care!
Love Junie!

Hi Jim and Mary! It's all relative, 40 degrees and sunny Florida, less than 10 degrees in cold, crappy gray Ohio.... I don't know, but I think you have it good...smile! It was great to see you over the holidays. You both looked great. Thanks for all the great gifts for us and the kids. Indoor soccer has started and Nick has started football conditioning. Max continues to grow and challenge Ed routinely. I hope by the time you get back Max and/or Ed are still here...smile.
Take care, be safe and find that warm caribbean breeze and waters!
Love, Sue and Ed

Hi Uncle Jim and Aunt Mary! We just finshed playing in the snow and would rather be in bathing suits jumping off the back of your boat. We are working to figure out how to earn our airfare to the Keys. What do you think about a lemonade stand in Ohio in the winter?! Anyway, we miss you! Smooth sailing. Love Katie and Kristin
