Enjoying the company..........

On Saturday we headed into Sebring to pick up a few things at Lowe's - a handle for the slider door and a small leaf blower.

We had made previous plans to visit with Nick and Tonyia.  Seems we just don't get together as often as we used to.  But it was real nice to spend a few hours with them yesterday.  Not hard to tell why they don't get away much; they have both been working so hard getting their new home remodeled and into shape.  And it's really coming together very nicely.  Rich and Nick spent most of their time in the "under construction" Tiki Hut, talking "men" stuff and enjoying a cold beverage, and Tonyia and I sat in the sun room (where it was air conditioned!) had a glass of wine and played a little Mexican Train.  Before leaving, we enjoyed a couple of Pizza's from Hungry Howie's. First time we'd ordered from there and they were very good.   We always enjoy our visits with them.

Since the "bird man" across the canal is in town, all the birds and ducks seem to gather in his backyard most every day.  I think he throws food out for them a couple of times a day.......You can often hear him calling  "Here Bird, Here Bird!!"   They all seem to know it's dinner time.

Today Rich was sitting out on the back lanai having his coffee and called to me.  There were several mallard ducks, some on the boat house, both ours and our two neighbors, and there were four of them perched on top of the nesting house in the back yard.  A little later you could here the peck, peck, peck of the red headed woodpecker.  He was going to town on the tree in our back yard.  Wish the pictures were better!  Gotta get a better camera...........for sure!
