Memorial Day

Please take a few minutes today to remember all those who have or are serving our country. They are the reason we can do what do!

It has been another fun weekend here on the Emerald Coast. Friday was spent on Charlene’s boat at Crab Island. We had Julie, Dean, Trish, Julie, Mike and of course Capt. Russ. It was a beautiful day in the water and we even had Rick and Jane boat up to join us. We ended the evening at Julie’s swimming and eating pizza till almost 11 pm. Fun!

Saturday was the 17th annual Memorial Day Party at Bobby and Darla’s house. Bobby is a vet who does this party to show his support to all the troops. He has tons of food, a band and about 100 friends show up. It is always a good time. Sunday started out with Sunshine Cindy and I going to Harry T’s for brunch. The harbor was packed but we were able to get a seat inside. Sunshine Cindy ordered a Bloody Mary. As she started to drink it a guy came up behind us and told her she could not have that drink. It was our musician friend Steve Hall. He was there with his wife and another couple. Steve is a fun guy and an excellent musician. His wife is a wedding planner who just completed a wedding that cost over $200k. Wow, some people have more money than they know what to do with it.

Sunday afternoon and evening was our Crab Island Mambo party at KC’s Sandbar in Ft. Walton Beach with John Friday. Thank to Mike and Bev and the staff at KC’s for putting this show on. John played for 4 ½ hours solid without a break. It was in the low 90’s and he had the sun right on him. I am not sure how he did it! John had the crowd dancing and the drinks flowing. Meg took good care of our group. Everyone had a great time! Thank you again Mike!
