I'm posting this photo so you can see how the face is holding up.  It's been a couple of years now and this is not retouched in any way.  No cream on the eyes because that tightens up those wrinkles when I put it on.  

My hair is finally growing in too.  Boy that was tough losing all the hair.  I guess all in all it was a small price to pay but it still was a royal pain.  I hated wearing a wig.  Itchy and hot.  When I'd get home it was a tossup which came off first, the wig or the bra! lol

Tonight the mayor of the pool and his bride are coming up here to dinner.  I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Have a lovely day y'all.   I will too for sure!

Yesterday we had "Yappy Hour"
in the bar... Of course Roche' 
decided to go!




There were treats and prizes and about 25 dogs and one cute rock!  Roche' ordered a Rolling Rock beer and requested rock and roll music.  After his beer he got a little "boulder"!

Sorry for the grainy photos.  
I took photos from the newsletter.





We had SUCH a great time!  It started with a cocktail hour with passed Hors d'oeuvres followed by a lovely delicious dinner of beef tenderloin and then it was off to the casino.  It was play money of course but there were prizes for the winners at the end of the night and drawings for prizes every half hour.  I had a wonderful evening.  

There is always something fun to do here.  I wish everyone could have as much fun as I'm having!

So last night's movie was LBJ.  I had never seen it and I did like the movie but I couldn't help thinking about how much Sarge disliked that man.  Not for his civil rights bill but over Viet Nam.  He always said we could have easily won that war (war - not police action as they like to call it) and how so many died for nothing and we ran with our tails between our legs and left the South Vietnamese to fend for themselves, horrible outcome.  When we went there he truly believed it was the right thing to do.  Right or wrong that's what he thought.  It was a tossup which he disliked more, LBJ or Jane (Hanoi) Fonda.  Then he died from Agent Orange.  So tragic.  73 years old.  He should have had many more good years.  He worked hard all his life for that retirement and was cheated out of it.  

Anyway I did enjoy the movie and got to see Ryan too.  Now I'm off to see Dr. Wacks for the second part of my physical.  I have lost weight.  I can't wait to see how much!

Have a great day y'all.  I will too for sure...

Just a bit of the wildlife I saw having my coffee on the screened porch.  Plenty to look at here!  The iguana will get lots bigger  They sort of scare me but I don't get close.  There was a fourth bird, a brown one that looked just like the white ones but I didn't get a good shot of her.  They were pecking at the ground, getting bugs I suppose.  Very busy anyway!

Today I am about to go play Rummy Kue or however you spell that.  We have between six and eight that play and it's lots of laughs. 

Have a great Monday!  I shall too!

Well it's Sunday and not too much goes on, I'm having dinner with the duck but other than that just chores around the apartment (which I needed to do anyway).  I sat outside early this morning and listened to the birds busy themselves starting their day.  Funny little creatures.  There aren't many crows and they are my favorite, so smart.  Ugly but really smart.  If you are nice to them they remember you and aren't afraid the next time.  I used to be afraid of all birds but I'm not so much any more.

Hope your Sunday is totally tits.  Mine is quiet but lovely!

So last night's movie was "An Inspector Calls".  I watched the whole thing but didn't get it.  I even googled it when I got home.  It is supposedly a classic but I don't think it makes sense.  If you've seen it and know please let me know.

If you are on Facebook I'm Bonnie Closser Cordle.  

Tonight is trivia instead of Bingo because the Big Bingo they have monthly is Saturday.  Saturday is going to be a busy one.  Bridge after dinner and bingo before.  I swear I never thought I'd play bridge again but I am enjoying it.  Sarge would be shocked! lol

Oh I almost forgot!  I played Maj yesterday with my gals from Palm Beach.  I didn't win but I loved seeing them and playing.  We have a game next Wednesday too.

That's it from my world.  Hope you have a great day.  I know I will!

So this afternoon I have a dermatology appointment.  Since I'm in the sun a lot I go twice a year.  Then tonight I am calling bingo.  I was requested!  Lol.  Whatever that means but I don't mind.  I'd rather play but I don't mind calling.

I also have a mahjong game this week, on Wednesday.  We haven't played for a while because some players were out of town.  I'm looking forward to that.

Tomorrow night the (Self appointed) mayor (of the pool where I used to live) and his lovely bride are coming here for dinner.  I'll be really glad to see them.  They came once before and liked it. Hey, what's not to like, right?

So that's it from my world...

Today is a pool day for me.  I love that part of it is shaded by the canopy as the sun is brutal.  

The show last night at the Fern House was great  Several very funny comedians and Peter Lemongello Jr. sand his heart out.  What a talent that young 18 year old has!  If you are on facebook I posted a video but can't get it here on blogger.

Tonight I'm actually cooking for myself!  I don't do that too much anymore.  I still like to cook but it's just so easy to go to the dining room and the food is so good there that I just don't cook too much.

Have a great day Y'all.  I know I will too!

So Friday's activities:  Today my cleaning lady comes.  I have "Current Events" in the early afternoon and then happy hour at 4:30. I am hosting a dinner table in the Waterfront Dining Room at 6:00 and bingo later.  Another busy day.  

Current Events is good because there are two leaders and one is conservative and one is liberal.  Everyone treats everyone else with respect and no fighting.  Aside from politics we discuss any current events anyone wants to talk about.  I really enjoy it.

And I'm still not...
