Yes, my friends know me well!

What can I say...my friends know me, right!  But that's what friends are supposed to do....anyway, Jan F. brought me over this bottle of wine the other day!  Jan is one of the ladies that was at my luncheon two weeks ago.  She and her hubby are from Michigan too. 

My kids would be jealous of this wine.  It's from one of their favorite places to stay in the U.P.,  Black Star Farms!  The kids have gone their several times for their anniversary get-away and they bring back wine for other family members (not mum)!  So now I have my own bottle from Black Star Farms!  THANKS, Jan!!!  So nice of you!!!!

And just another 'best kept secret' of Ocala to share....we went out the other night with friends to dinner at Carmine's!  OMG!!!  This has to be one of the best kept secrets and the best Italian food around.  They serve fresh minced garlic in oil with home made bread!  The salad and dressing were fantastic as was our dinner!!  Bob and I can't wait to go back.  If you're in the Ocala area, look out for this place...it's in a small strip mall  on 200 and if you didn't know about it you wouldn't stop.  And they serve wine in large glasses!  Not those tiny little glasses...yea, we're back on to friends knowing me/us so well! 


A few weeks ago, I mentioned that Jane Davies was asking for folks to make a post card so her post office could increase their postings.  I did make a card for her (post here) and this is the card I got back that she made!  Plus, check out Jane's post today!  She's made the news!  It's quite an interesting and touching news story!  Check it out! 

Tonight we're going to dinner (again, I know!) to celebrate a BD!  No, we don't need an excuse...but makes me feel better eating out for a purpose!

Carmines... hmmm. I think we went there a couple of years back. Need to check this. We don't get down on 200 that often. Seems a long ways from where we are. But thanks for the recommend. Nice postcard.
