Friday we had a Parrothead meeting at KC’s Sandbar in Ft. Walton Beach. Our friend Jan was booked to play music for the meeting. A big crowd showed up as the weather was perfect for the outside venue. I had a big surprise planned for Sunshine Cindy. I worked it out with Jan that after everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to Sunshine Cindy I would hand her a card. The card was asking her to marry me. She was shocked to say the least. It was a great moment. I am a lucky guy!
She said "yes!"
We stayed at KC’s till Jan finished playing. It was a lot of fun. They had a jello shot eating contest. The difference with this contest was you could not use your hands to eat the jello. It was a blast watching everyone. Kenny won with Larry coming in a close second. A group of us headed to the Legion to sing some Karaoke. We pretty much took over half the place. As that wound down Judie, Kelly, Capt. John, Sunshine Cindy and I headed to Waffle House for some late night food. The entire night was a blast.
Saturday was taken up with a pool party at our friend Julie’s house. It was an all day party that turned out to be a lot of fun. The sky was overcast most of the day but we still got some tan. Good food, music and friends.
Pool party fun
Wayne and Renae joined us there. We walked to Crazy Lobster. None of our usual bartenders were working. We had one and moved on heading to the Boathouse. We stopped in front of AJ’s for a minute checking out a fish weigh-in that was taking place when a guy in a big boat that was tied up at AJ’s recognized Sunshine Cindy. Turns out he is newly engaged too. We all talked about that. As we left to continue to the Boathouse I asked Sunshine Cindy who were those folks and she had no clue. They obviously knew her but she could not remember from where. Old age is catching up with her!
Getting ready for the Jello Shot contest
We ended up running into a couple more friends there including Tony. Just another Sunday Funday at the Boathouse. We made one last stop at Coyote Ugly on the way back down the harbor. From there it was time to head home to get ready for the work week.
Looks like this week we will be doing some wedding planning. We are not sure if we are going to get married in town or maybe some place like Key West or New Orleans. We shall see but there will definitely be a reception in Destin somewhere. I think all the bars will be fighting for it! LOL
Have a great week. See ya Thursday.
