Legs, Lunch, And Lounging

It was a rainy dreary day here in Lower Alabama yesterday, but look what God did before He put the sun away for the day.  Dang, why can’t I paint like that!!!!  I have everything I need except for the talent (my better half says I have everything except for the patience).


Inconceivable!!!  We ordered the Ultra-Fab Electric Landing Legs Monday morning from and they were delivered yesterday afternoon.  The only problem?  We went to Big Daddy’s for lunch with Jim and Ellie when UPS delivered and the shipper required a return signature so “they” didn’t leave the legs.  But, “they” will bring them back today between 10:30 and 2:00.  Hopefully we’ll be home from Miss Judy’s medical tests – she’s getting an echocardiogram and a stress test at the cardiologist’s office in Fairhope.

Jim and Ellie picked us up at quarter to one to go to Big Daddy’s for lunch.  Big Daddy’s has a great little lunch menu with baskets at nine bucks and sandwiches at six bucks.  Believe it or not, Big Daddy’s makes one heck of a Philly sandwich served with your choice of onion rings, French fries, or sweet potato fries (and they don’t skimp on the fries/rings either).  Jim and Ellie are getting ready to haul anchor and shove off on Friday so this was our last outing with them this trip, but we look forward to catching up with them in the Texas Hill Country this coming March.

We had planned to go to the clubhouse for an evening with Chuck Stevens who sings Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow music.  But, we decided to don our PJ’s and hunker down for the evening instead – that would have been waaay too much stimulation for us in one day.  Besides, we needed to get an early start this morning and be out of the house no later than 6:45 for Judy’s doctor appointment.  A subsequent email from Norm and Linda said that Sunday evening’s “show” was one of the best ever at the Plantation and last night’s “show” was even better raising the bar on a new standard.

Bye Bye For Now And God Bless  - - - - - - - - - - 


  1. good luck with the tests today....sounds like a super fine lunch with great friends..

  2. For future reference, we once 'missed' a UPS package that we had been waiting for. You can go to the UPS distribution center north of Silverhill late afternoon to pick it up there. I believe it's actually in Roberstdale. E-mail if you want driving directions.

    Trust that Judy's tests were normal. :-)
