Up here in Lake Placid, Bob is asking Mr. Sand Crane to bite him! Egar is waiting to see what happens!
Yesterday we got up really early (well, 6:45 AM) and got ready to head down to Lehigh Acres for the second time in less than a week! Cousin Mike wanted us to know that a unit two doors down from them on the first floor was being put up for sale and did we want to have a look at it? We decided it was only about an hour's drive away so went. We toured it with Mike (it doesn't take long to tour a 950 square foot condo). I took some pictures which I will share. We had another nice visit with them and we all were amazed that in less than 3 weeks we had seen each other 3 times and hadn't seen each other before that in 30 years!!

The condo is fully furnished with upscale furniture (kind of like Mom's in Ft. Lauderdale), dishes, linens, the whole works! The kitchen has been upgraded along with the 2 bathrooms, windows, and a new air conditioner. It is a corner unit on the first floor and overlooks the golf course. It has a nice compact Lanai (Florida room, screened porch) that will seat 4 people comfortably. Very nice. We were impressed but the best part about this is that we have relatives close by (although not direct family--which is a problem for us) and we met many very nice people who live there . There are plenty of activities going on every week so you can be as busy as you want or you can just go to the pool and chill out if that is more your style. Now we just have to think about it and see if we can afford it or if we want to look around more. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
Light airy Master Bedroom
Living room furniture is Florida style.
A tiny, compact kitchen!
The guest room. Notice the plantation shutters. I really like them!
We have really enjoyed getting reacquainted with our cousins. Mike stayed with us on the ranch a few summers when he was a teenager! He even remembers changing JJ's diapers! Now she is a grandmother!!!!! We didn't get to see Maryanne this last visit but I would like to spend more time with them too.

We will be here for another few days and then it is off to San Antonio to be with the great-grand-daughters again! Bob is getting a little antsy to get home but I'm thinking it is still snowy up there and I want to drive in when we get there! Just yesterday schools were closed and also roads all over southern Wyoming and Colorado (including Denver). It has finally warmed up and is beautiful here!
