Free Breakfast

There are a number of Canadians who spend the winter at CCRV and they are a great bunch of people.  They attend all the events, volunteer at functions and are a pleasure to have around.

They began a tradition of preparing an end of year breakfast free of charge to everyone in the park.  When I say everyone, the hall was full with no seats available once it got into gear.  It was slated to start at 8:30am and we decided to go a little later and let the first rush get fed.  We didn't wait long enough since there was still a long line when we got there after 9:00am.

They were selling chances on door prizes and while Gerry bought the chances I filled our coffee cups and saw our neighbors Frank & Jan waving at me to let us know there were seats at their table.  Thank God they caught my eye since there were only a few open spaces at that time.  I grabbed three seats so Ron K could join us and waited for Gerry to finish with the chances.  She picked up two breakfasts on the way to the table and we enjoyed some pancakes and sausages.  

Ron K won two prizes, Frank & Jan won the best prize and Gerry won a prize also.  Lucky place to be for us.  We had a good time and chatted with a lot of people and finally got back to the MH after 10:30.  Tired, but not hungry.

Later in the day we made a Dairy Queen run with Ron K and took advantage of the last day to get the special price.  Now, maybe we can loose some more weight. 

Later that evening we rented Zero Dark Thirty from Redbox and watched it.  That is one powerful movie and doesn't pull any punches.  The beginning is brutal, but once you get past that it is very interesting.  In case you don't know what it is about, it is the story of the search for Osama Bin Laden and his eventual demise at the hands of the Seal Team 6.  I would not recommend it for younger children and the faint of heart.
