Palmetto Bay is where Patty a friend from my high school days, lives with her husband, Phillip. They, too, have been married over 40 years. I reconnected with Patty on Facebook a couple of years ago, and she has been following our journey on our blog. When I messaged her that we would be in her area this week she and Phillip graciously offered to have us courtesy park on their street. After checking Google maps to see if we would "fit" it appeared to us that we could park in the cul-de-sac next to their home. The trick was we would have to back a couple hundred feet into the cul-de-sac. The process actually went pretty smoothly, and within 15-20 minutes we were parked and looking for an electrical outlet to plug in so we could turn on the AC again and dry out the inside air again.....:D
While we were finishing our parking maneuvers Phillip and Patty's neighbor came up to introduce himself....Michael Baiamonte is the Public Address Announcer for the Miami Heat since 1990. Michael's home is just behind the picture below. You just never know when Lady Serendipity will "show a little thigh". Of course, his team is playing great, and just a few days ago defeated my team, the Lakers.....they're on the down swing, and the Heat is on the upswing.....:( We joked a little about the fortunes of basketball, and talked about the Heat's up coming game (last night) against Portland (Miami 117, Portland 104). And for a change my Lakers won over Phoenix.
I haven't seen Patty since she was 18, or 19, but it was as if no time had passed at all. We also met their youngest daughter, Stephanie, who is quite a young lady, and her fiancee Logan. Patty had prepared enchilada's, rice and beans and they were marvelous. TLE brought in some of her amazing salsa and some chips, which we munched on just before dinner. We sat talking over dinner, and then after we cleared the table sat down to watch a movie I had wanted to see when we were in Campbellsville, but just didn't get around to it....."Trouble with the Curve Ball" starring Clint Eastwood. We enjoyed the movie, and our time with Phillip and Patty a lot. We'll be here through Thursday morning when we roll the wheels again on the coach and head down to Marathon Key, and then Key West in the T-Bird.
We are enjoying our current view and hosts a lot, and look forward to what Wednesday has in store for us.
Thanks for stopping by!
