At work and play in FL

Mom, Uncle Dick, and me

Hard to believe that we’ve already been here for more than 10 days! We had fun when Mom visited for a couple of days. We drove the car down Las Olas Boulevard, the local shopping street, all the way to the beach. On Tuesday Uncle Dick drove over from Marco Island and took us all to lunch. He could only stay a couple of hours, but it was good to see him. Then Mom and I made a run to Costco and stocked up on non-perishables. That evening we drove over to the beach again for an excellent dinner at a restaurant called Greek Islands.

Mom’s visit ended all too quickly, and we’re back to work in earnest. We’ve made progress on our long list of things to take care of, but we aren’t going to be able to leave here on the 20th as we had hoped. Our SSB radio quit working as we entered Port Everglades. We couldn’t get anyone out to look at it until yesterday, and the news isn’t good. Whatever is wrong with it is something they can’t fix, and they have to send it to the manufacturer for repair. We don’t know how long that will take, but we’re certain that a Tuesday departure is out. We’re still hoping to be able to leave next week, though.
