I took off Friday the 4th from both work and from NC.  I went to Fort Myers, Florida!  I flew Allegiant.  With one checked bag, it cost me $160 round trip.  An incredible deal!  Allegiant is limited as to what airports they fly out of.  Typical not major airports. I had to drive to the Asheville regional airport.  It was a 2 hour trip and was an easy drive.  I typically fly from Greenville but Asheville was a recent addition to their airport list.  Greenville’s departure time was like 6:30am.  With getting to the airport an hour early + a 2 hour drive, I would have had to leave the house by 3:30am.  Yeah, no thanks.  The drive to Asheville was prettier and the airport nicer.  The best part?  My flight was at 10:30am.  The second best?  Cheap!


My Aunt Donna and her best friend Rosemary (aka Ro) picked me up.  Ro was visiting from NY and she also flew Allegiant a day or 2 before I did.  Our family has known Ro for many years.

I spent the weekend with my Mom and Dad, just relaxing, chit chatting and such.  I got to see Mike, Dave and David for lunch on Saturday.  I didn’t take any pictures except for a couple of funny ones or special effects ones.

My Florida Trip ended Monday morning.  It was a nice long weekend trip. Jim did not come with me since a) he saw most of his family recently b) he can stay home with the dog and c) he doesn’t have as much time off as me.

A lonely photo in my phone…

Friday the 11th, we made our way to Augusta.  Jim spent a lot of time organizing his tools in to Rubbermaid storage bins.  We also found a place for the empty totes we use to transport stuff back and forth.  Now the living area is free of clutter.  I should have taken a picture but soon after organization, some piles started appearing.  You know the piles.  “Returns”.  “Needs a home”.  “Donate”. Etc.  Oh well.  It was nice while it lasted.

One of our friends here at the campground knows a mechanic… his dad.  So several weeks ago we dropped the Jeep off with him for repairs and this weekend we picked it up.  He repaired our power window, replaced the headliner, solved a rough idle issue and oodles of other issues.  The Mazda lease is up in June so we’re gonna need that Jeep in working order.

Easter weekend, 18-20th, we stayed in Charlotte and had friends over for Easter lunch.  Beth, Angie, David, Ruby and Jamie came over.  It was potluck style and the food was amazing.

You know how I love the novelty bread from Great Harvest Bread right?  We’ve had a turkey and a spider.  This time, a very cute bunny wabbit.
