And More Florida

In Umatilla
We also spent 3 days with Allen and Claudia who live in Umatilla. They have been our friends for 50 years. We met when they were our neighbors at Married Student Housing at NC State University in 1961. Here’s some pictures we took while with them.

We took a boat tour of the Dora Canal. It was very interesting.
Claudia and Allen are on the left. Other couple is Willetta & Ron.

We saw all types of birds and animals on the tour.

There are baby alligators nestled among the leaves in this picture.

In the picture to the right, Beverly is checking the oranges. This grove is located next door to Claudia and Allen’s home and is owned by their friends, Ron and Willetta. The oranges were juicy and delicious!


Claudia & Allen in front of their gracious country home. We had a wonderful time being there.
Note: We enjoy our trips to the cabin on Doulas lake thanks to this wonderful sharing couple.

This is the boat dock, which on their property. Big bass are out there waiting for the right lure.

Joke of the Day

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette head.

She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

Willetta and I enjoyed being with you folks and Allan and Claudia that day on Dora Canal tour. Glad you liked the oranges, sorry you couldn't have taken a lot back to Tennessee. Really like your web site, your patriotism and humor.
