Josie and I went out to the Palm Beach Equestrian Center for another night of horse jumping and had a great evening. Besides seeing the best horse jumpers in the world, we feasted on good food and were entertained by a fantastic band and circus type entertainers. It was a very nice way to spend a Saturday evening.
We spend many evenings playing Mah Jongg at Cathy and Scotts. Many of those nights they cook up a feast for dinner. On St Pats Day they had corn beef with all the fixings and Josie made a Grasshopper pie. Scott received a mixed drink kit from his employer and Cathy served as our bar tender mixing up three nights of tequila-based cocktails.
For Easter Cathy and Scott made up Easter Baskets for us and Josie crafted a twinkie car with a rabbit Peep driver. Scott cooked a fantastic prime rib, Cathy made delicious green beans with mushrooms and the greatest deviled eggs in the world. Josie added in Boursin potatoes and a grape and apple salad. We finished it off with Scott's pineapple upside down cake with a bourbon brown sugar glaze.
We also have two favorite Breweries that we like to visit. NOBO in Boynton Beach and Funky Buddah in Ft. Lauderdale. Both have a great variety of beers and plenty of tasty bar food to go along with the beer. Funky Buddha also has cornhole and basketball games that we enjoy.
A few weeks later I flew to DC and spent a few days with Missy and her cat Emma. We saw three games and a I got to see Missy's office and meet many of her fantastic co-workers. While Missy worked on Friday, I played tourist and visited the Capital Mall and a few exhibits at the Smithsonian. Two of interest were Julia Child's Kitchen and an exhibit with and old travel trailer from the thirties era with a placard describing the "Trailer Problem" where many people who were homeless lived in trailers during the depression. A lot like us now.
We left Delray Beach on Sunday May 1st and are now parked on Jekyll Island Georgia, for the next 8 days.
