December 29th. Wonderful weather in Englewood. It was 80 degrees yesterday and didn’t feel hot at all. Last Thursday we drove down to the Englewood farmers market to purchase some local fruit. It was also a flea market. Much larger than I expected. Their pulled pork and chicken sandwiches were great. Later we loopers Patty,Mike, Ed,Kyle, and Bruce and I joined together at the pool for docktails and bon voyage for Lulu and Scott who are leaving for a month to enjoy Marathon Key. Bruce snapped a good picture of our local alligator who resides a few miles up on placida road.
