Sarasota, FL High: 65 Low: 45
Eldo and Sparky are watching the weather very closely..The weather woes are everywhere ELSE but here in Sarasota..We're getting a cool down for a few days, but that's the worst of it....Sparky's daughter, Kelly, heads out Friday from Virginia for the long drive here.. She'll stop part way down as it's too far to drive in one day. Eldy's son heads out tomorrow from northern Indiana where the weather is looking MUCH more nasty. Eldy's daughter flies out Sunday from Indiana to Tampa, and we're hoping that the flight cancellations have smoothed themselves out by Sunday so there aren't any delays there. So we wait to hear the progress of the kids as they make their way south......
Here is an example of sodalite polished and made into a pair of earrings.(photo is courtesy of the internet)..The stone is so beautiful and it's in Sparky's favorite color--blue. Sparky is probably going to do a wire wrapped pendant after the stone gets polished and buffed.
So, we came home, headed over to bingo at Sun 'n' Fun Bar and Grill, and we WON! A tin of cookies, no money...phooey! Boy, did they have huge jackpots...Two coverall bingo games of 150.00 and 206.00, and the average prize for a variety of winning cards was 40-50.00. Sparky got within TWO squares of covering the entire card on the 206 dollar jackpot. RATS!
Eldo thinks he'll be back for bar bingo next week...heh, heh, heh.....It's cheap entertainment, four cards for 10.00 and the odds of winning are a lot better than playing the lottery, that's for sure!
Tomorrow Sparky thinks she is going to check out the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens..Maybe.....We'll see what's blooming this time of year in Sarasota....
