Our dear friend JoAnn finally arrived, slipping south between the waves of snow and ice. It took her four days of driving, but she's finally here. She rents a big house right on the Gulf near us for February. I went over for a little visit this afternoon (along with a couple loads of laundry) while Dave did "his thing" here. His thing is washing and waxing Beluga. He loves the doing of it, and he loves how the old girl looks when he's done.

Later we shared a wonderful dinner at Rick's French Bistro, a very favorite restaurant of ours. Tomorrow we'll all drive down to RV World in Nokomis to schedule some needed repairs on her Class B RV.
