The Cook Returns

The katts let both Judy and I sleep in this morning.  It felt kinda good, too!  There really isn’t anything new to report on as we spent the day at the Plantation doing pretty much the same ol’ stuff.  Judy has been working on her quilting project while I have been working on the “Ta Do List” and reading.

The highlight of the day was the return of “Larry the Cook” and his wife Babs.  You know, like “Bob the Builder” or “Joe the Plumber”.  Well we have someone far more important - “Larry the Cook”!  Escapees travel on their stomachs so it is absolutely necessary for the Plantation to have “Larry the Cook”.  Larry does three meals a week; Tuesday night dinner, Thursday night dinner, and Saturday morning breakfast.  He’s on duty right now, as I write this paragraph, cooking eggs anyway you want them, as long as you want the fried or scrambled, that is.

Today is the monthly Craft /Yard Sale.  Tables are set up in the clubhouse where crafters and yard salers can display and sell their wares.  It only lasts a couple of hours, but you can find some really nice things to choose from.  We have a lot of very “crafty” people living amongst us.

Well, as you can see, a routine has settled in upon us, however, it is a routine that we can live with and enjoy.  Rainbow Plantation makes a nice winter destination especially when you need to hunker down and let your emergency fund heal and, hopefully, grow a little.  There are lots and lots of great people and lots and lots of fun things to do.  Further, there are lots and lots of functions with friends, food, fun, and fellowship.

So, when y’all coming to join us?  The more the merrier! 

That’s all for today, folks.  Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -


  1. You know we miss you guys! The craft sale sounded fun, of course, we shoulda stayed to experience a meal or more by Larry, and just all around enjoying life on the plantation.

    Ya never know when our number might come up...mailed our check today...

    Take care and don't finish up the ta do list too fast now, heah?

  2. Miss you all too, thinking we should have stayed for a few more days. We will be back in the spring, at least that is what we wrote in jello and nailed it to a tree.
