Last weekend was definitely an “R & R” weekend. Rest and relaxation was the norm. Saturday we did go eat Chinese at a favorite restaurant of ours in the area, Mr. Wang, in Homosassa. It was also a milestone for us and our new furkid, Kozmo. It was her first time being totally alone in the 5er since we adopted her a week earlier. Barbie was the one claiming “separation anxiety.” All the short trips we have made around town Kozmo has ridden with us. She was an angel. I figure she must have spent the time up on the bed in the bedroom sleeping since when I opened the door she was hopping down the steps towards the door. She seemed as happy to see us as we were to see her. She continues to love her and her mommies long walks thru RCC and she has made many fur-friends and really enjoys going to the dog walk in the park.
Sunday, the only significant memories were reading the Sunday paper and watching the races on tv, first the NASCAR race from Las Vegas and secondly the Amazing Race. We did firm up my final DJ gig for the snowbird season at Rock Crusher Canyon. We’ll hold an “End of the Season” Dance on Saturday, March 26, from 7-10:00pm. Anyone planning to camp or be in the area on that day, stop on in and I’ll play your favorite tune(s). Bring your favorite beverage of choice and any snacks you may desire and come join us. I also made an appointment to have a Pullrite Super 5th hitch put on the truck this Saturday morning at Suncoast RV in Ocala. Speaking of upcoming appointments, both Barbie and I have appointments down in the Valrico/Brandon/Tampa area next week. We’ll no doubt spend 3-4 days down there to take care of Barbie’s eye appointment, her well womans check-up and my dental cleaning and my six month visit to my primary care physician. That should do it for our appointments before we start heading north somewhere around the end of April.
Yesterday, we met Duane and Debbie Rowe, who drove in from Ocala, and Charley and Sherry Dilworth, who are camped here in RCC for another week before leaving for Alabama, for lunch. We went to a local spot, Dan’s Clam Stand for food and tall tales. If I remember correctly, we sampled, fried shrimp, haddock, flounder, clam strips, crab cake sandwich and my favorite, their New England style clam chowder. Of course, side items of fries, cole slaw, and hush puppies were included with the meals. As we left Dan’s, the Rowes followed us back to RCC for a look-see.
The Rowes actually camped in Homosassa Springs earlier in the season but didn’t know about RCC then. They may spend some time here next winter. We got to show the group our new Alpine 5er and chat here for awhile before going to Charley and Sherry’s Montana for a walk-thru and more conversation. Charley brought their four legged travel buddy, Cheyenne, a one and a half year old dachshund. She and Kozmo were a trip to watch. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that Kozmo likes to “hide” biscuit treats or chew toys, I guess so Barbie nor I take them ‘til she wants them :-). Well, when Cheyenne came to visit Barbie gave Cheyenne a chew toy but she also found some of Kozmo’s buried “loot” and helped herself. Then Kozmo proceeded to steal Cheyenne’s chew stick when she was hunting for buried treasure. When we went to Charley and Sherry’s rig, the pups were given little biscuits. Kozmo took hers outside and proceeded to “hide” it under some leaves. Well, after the two played awhile, Cheyenne played detective again and found the biscuit. Isn’t it amazing how entertaining pets can be. We sure are enjoying our new addition.
Well, that’s about it for now.
‘Til next time…..
