I couldn't resist buying these critters. They are on fiberglass poles and "go with the wind." When the wind changes directions, they do too! It looks like a school of aquarium fishies. This day the park was having yard sales and we ended up taking them down and putting them away. We had so many people come around asking to buy them!
Great news! My sister and her husband just arrived! They are headed for the Daytona 500. They left northern Indiana yesterday at 4:30 p.m. and arrived in Ocala at our park about 9 p.m. We had scouted out the park and had a decent site picked out for them just 2 rows over from us. They can actually see our coach from their site. Nita and Jim both came over and talked for awhile. It was good to see them. They will be leaving tomorrow for their campsite close to the race, but we plan to hook up with them again before they leave the state.
Till next time. . .

The seminars have not been very good. The presenters have been unprepared or even absent. These have been a big disappointment. We are going to the microwave/convection cooking one tomorrow morning because the presenter is very good. I have seen her seminars before and she always does a good job.
Last evening we saw the Rivoli RV Review. http://www.rivolirevue.com/ We have seen these performers before and they do an excellent show. We laughed and laughed at the funny songs they sang. Many of them are their original creations, but most are familiar tunes with lyrics adapted to fit the RV lifestyle. Very enjoyable.
We went back tonight for the next show. We were to hear a men's group singing and we were looking forward to it. While we were sitting in the tent waiting for the show to begin, the announcer asked us all to leave. It seems the power panel was sweating and the power was about to go out. It was a huge tent with probably a thousand people, so it was better to leave while we still had light. We caught the shuttle bus back to the rig and here I sit.
Tomorrow we will try some more seminars. If they don't get any better we may leave Saturday instead of Sunday. We shall see.
Till next time. . .
