    Wow, time flies buy so fast. After our arrivial at the Thousand Trails here in Orlando 3 week's ago, we have been very busy. The day we arrived we met friends and had dinner with 5 other couples that night. Since then we had another dinner with 9 couples a week later at Manny's. Then we had a dinner with about 50 cast members from Disney. We had work with about half of them in the passed. What a great time reconnecting with old friends. 
    Then we met our son Mark and wife Tracey's  neighbors, Chris and Susie in Winter Haven. They have a vacation home there. They also have a boat and do a lot of water sking. We went out on their boat and had a great time. We did not ski, but enjoyed watching them ski and the boat ride thru some of the lakes in the Chain of Lakes. Of course we had to go out to dinner after that.
    We then met my cousin Jane and her husband Nick is ST Cloud for dinner. We ate at the Catfish Place, were they have "home made shrimp"(sorry an inside joke). We do seem to eat out a lot. The first two weeks here went so fast.
   We then went to Clermont and Bee's RV Park for our week out of Thousand Trails. We did meet up with friends we volunteered with in Livingston TX..Tom and Paula saw me ride by on my bike and found us the next day. We didn't know they were going to be there. Just one of those chance meetings.We did meet with them in PA this summer. Bee's has two great dinners, all the chicken you can eat with all the fixin's on Tues. night and all the fish you can eat on Fri night. Both are super.  People start linning up about a half hour before they open. The line goes very fast. Of course, what do you think, we did join them. Two couples we worked with at Disney and are in our Escapees chapter, Burt and Rosie and Butch and Evelyn, came up and joined us and Tom and Paula for dinner. This wasn't the end of it. Friday we did it again. Just Tom and Paula and us. But wait here comes Pam and Larry, another couple we worked with at Disney. they also had dinner with us about a week before at Manny's. We do other things beside eat out. We did go over to Disney with friends Jim and Linda after the big cast dinner. They are the couple we spent a couple of weeks with in LA at Mardi Grai last year. The circle of friends is like throwing a stone in a pond, the circle of waves gets bigger and bigger, just like the circle of friends.
   We are now back at the Thousand Trails for two weeks. We got the same site we had here three weeks ago. Of course we saw friends Fran and Larry, the first couple we saw when we arrived here three weeks ago. We got here on Mon and they came in on Tues.. We keep saying what a small world. What a great life.
     We started out to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING, but got carried away. We are planning to have dinner with friends tomorrow.  But today Linda got up with a very sore throat and the start of a cold. Not sure if we'll make it.
