Our nephew Walker came in to visit his dad, BIL Tom for a few days. It was nice to see him and catch up on his life, Tom got him playing bocce with us, and Walker even took first in one of Tom's poker games.
As I said, John and Diane came to visit, we had a great time, introduced them to several friends, enjoyed many cocktail hours and meals together, and I even got John playing bocce.

The park here has a huge competition every year called Senior Games, anyone can sign up to compete in an amazing number of activities, from shuffleboard, tennis, pickle ball, ping pong, putting, trivia, golf, etc, but the biggie is bocce. First off there is mixed bocce competition, then men's bocce, and women's bocce. But the event of the season is the face off between the Men's champions and the Women's champions. We joined at least 175 other people watching the very hotly contested match!

Jan and I have been working on organizing and arranging all our fishing gear to be ready for next season, ordering supplies that were used up and I have been tying flies so we'll be ready for the summer.

We even took time out to make homemade pizza, you know I had to get some food in here somewhere:-)
I am in no way saying this would be the solution for everyone, just saying this can be a real consideration when traveling and especially full-timing being in many faraway places. Give some thought to how you will handle these unforeseen medical or dental events.
