Baby, it's cold outside

Okay, Florida got its "come uppance" or what ever you call it.   Old man winter zapped us a good one last night.  Tonight is to be warmer, but it is still cold.  After tomorrow morning, the lows are low 60s and the highs are upper 70s.

Today we went to the flea market in the neighboring town of Webster and I picked up a TV antenna which included a built in rotator.  Well, as luck would have it, I got a bummer.  It rotates about 30 degrees and dies.  So back it goes next Monday.  There are 6 here in the park and everyone loves them.

We were amazed by some of the prices in the fruit market. At Immokalee, (the source) a half lug of strawberries sold for $8.  Last Sunday we bought from a road side vendor near the park and paid $11 and thought it was reasonable.  Today one of the vendors was selling strawberries for $6 a half lug.  (We didn't get any,  as Sandy said we had plenty in the refrigerator yet.)

Let's keep this one short.  Perhaps more tomorrow.
