It's a Surprise Party
Party Theme - Casablanca

Saturday, February 24, 2018 1300 or 1 O'clock PM
5 Oak Avenue, Palm Harbor, FL at Mom's new home.

Update: February 8, 2018

Plan is to all gather at Mom's house precisely at 1pm - plans are underway to get mom out of the house in the morning so we can swoop in and set up everything. Mom will arrive shortly after 1 PM.

Remember: It's a Humphrey Bogart theme party so wear your fedoras and practice your "Here's lookin at you kid"...

Note: Spring Break will be upon the west coast of Florida so book your accommodations now. Some thoughts for nearby hotels.

Andrew and Terry with our friends Cris and Dean took off after Thanksgiving on a 7 day Mexican cruise aboard the Holland America ship, Westerdam. It was a fun week with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, the shrimp capital of the world according to Freddy... and our beloved Puerto Vallarta. Here are just a few memories.

Honoring Mothers and Fathers

2017 MothersDay

Short Trip to Florida

Impromptu Florida visit for Mother's Day
We flew to Florida to surprise Mom on Mother's Day. You'll have to ask her if she was properly surprised. Jeremy Cook and Kim hosted a Mother's Day BBQ and thanks to Janet we had a terrific room at the Sheraton. Missed getting pictures of Brian and Penny but they drove down in their ginormous RV and joined the family fun.

2017 Fathers Day

Father's Day

We Hosted Family and Friends.
Three generations of fathers were part of the BBQ afternoon fun. Like all family parties there was a lot of terrific food and drink including smoked ribs and chicken from Andrew and Terry's new grill. And what would Father's Day be without kids? There was no short Ü supply. And while they tried their best to crack the cupcake piñata, birthday girl Carol stepped in and showered the ground with goodies.
Thanks to eveyone for a great day and another chance to party together.

Terry's Retirement Countdown



We celebrate independence and the abundance of freedom we enjoy as Americans remembering that equality is also a symbol of freedom, one we struggle tirelessly to achieve. Every American should have a right to a quality education, full time employment that pays a livable wage, the right to marry the partner of their choice and the right to competent, timely and affordable health care.
