To my delight, Megan made a return visit to Florida! We had a great time…almost a week!!! The weather was very sporadic and Sanibel Island was a tad disappointing, but nonetheless, it was a wonderful visit together! Enjoy the pics. In between trips to the beach, a road trip with Van-Go and a craft fair, Megan helped me get all my ‘stuff’ into the van before she left! I was scheduled to get back on the road 3 days after she went home. What a blessing she was!!!

The morning Megan left, I had my last appointment with the physical therapist. While I was there, a client working on his shoulder overheard me telling TJ about my plans to visit Alaska next year.
Bright Spot-He chimed in and he told me about his time in Alaska…he was stationed in Anchorage where the power lines are intentionally thicker so the enormous number of BALD EAGLES can hold on better AND so the cables don’t sag! He told me that Alaska has eagles like we have pigeons. Eagle Lake is just one of the regions where you can see dozens just hanging around. Google has some awesome shots. This information solidified my desire to visit Alaska. Another secret of Alaska came to light when Danny explained how surreal the winters are…absolutely freezing! Bars are open until 4:00am and often packed with crazy party people. Bonfires back into the woods a few miles is not uncommon. Sounds like creative problem-solving in order to stay warm…lol.
Danny served in the Army from 2004-2011. He traveled to Germany, Bulgaria and Romania to mention only a few. Then in 2014 while he was in Afghanistan, he injured his shoulder when a 100lb. door of an armored vehicle swung open. At that time, he was doing government work as part of a protection team for the U.S. Ambassador. He is currently rehabilitating his shoulder. Danny is hoping to go back to school after he is completely healed and eventually work as an EMT firefighter. Thank you, Danny, from myself and everyone for your service to this country and may God bless you in your future endeavors.
