We have had a fun few days here in Ft. Myers.  We’ve enjoyed meeting up with Arch again who returned from Christmas in California & many games usually of dominoes with Brent & Susan.  We spent a day @ Edison & Ford winter homes/museum.  Then we experienced a night listening to & rating 4 short independent films.  It was an interesting night as the films were strange but the 3 judges were even stranger & highbrow windbags.  We were supposed to pick up Lil @ 8:30 PM on the 23rd but she changed her schedule due to snow up north to arrive @ 5:00 PM.  After getting the rental car Bev & Susan went shopping then we lunched @ 1:45 PM @ Fords Garage for world renowned hamburgers only it took 1 ¾ hours to get & eat the burgers & it is a 2 ½ hour drive to West Palm Int’l Airport on the east coast of the state – OOPS!  Sorry Lil!  We were only 1 hour late but we got her back to Ft. Myers OK & spent the following day showing her around the great town, farmers market, shops & more.
