Grade School Friend & Mickler’s Landing Beach. FaceBook. Losing another hour tonight.

I hate Daylight Savings Time.  It does not affect me personally.  It does affect me through my pets.  They have an internal clock.  They do not look at the clock in the bedroom and say, “gee, I can sleep another hour”.  Or “darn, I’m getting up an hour earlier”.  Nope, they wake me by jumping on my head using their internal clock.  They are smart but they cannot tell time.

We lost an hour last week when we changed time zones driving from Texas to Florida.  Tonight we will lose another hour due to Daylight Savings time.  We are really messed up with the time changes.  Good thing we can tell time by looking at a clock.

I like Facebook.  I do not post my personal life on Facebook but I do post an occasional picture.   The other day, I posted this picture.  So far I have 80 likes and 25 comments.

me and booboo

I do creep a lot.  I like to see what everyone is doing.  lol.   Facebook enables me to keep in touch with family and friends that are located all over the United States. 

My 98-year-old uncle passed away this past week and I found out right away on Facebook.  Much quicker than to get for a phone call from family.  RIP and Fly High Uncle Gene. Uncle Gene is now celebrating with my dad, Uncle Micky, and his two sisters, Celia and Irene.

We visited with Aunt Margie, Uncle Gene, and our cousins a few months ago.  We knew it would be the last time we would see Uncle Gene.  This part of my family lives in Michigan.  Uncle Gene, my dad’s brother, was the last living uncle in our family.  But to live to be 98 and until last year, he was mostly healthy is amazing.  This is a picture we took last year in October when we visited with our Michigan family.  Love them.

Facebook also reunited me with a friend from Grade School and High School.  Debbie and I were connected by name.  Our last names both started with a B and I don’t know about these days, but back in the day, everything was decided by the alphabet.  After 49 years (oh my) Debbie and I connected on FaceBook and through Facebook, Debbie saw that I was in Jacksonville, an hour away from her home.

I got a FaceBook message from Debbie asking if I wanted to hook up for the day and reminisce.  I quickly jumped on it.  She kindly picked me up and treated me to a day away from my hubby and pups.  It was a nice getaway.  First, we went to her home.  She has a beautiful home here in Northern Florida.  It is a home out of a magazine.  She has an amazing decorating ability.  I met her husband.  Nice guy.  We chatted about our days in school, our work history and what we are doing now.

She brought out the yearbooks and it was so much fun to look through the yearbooks and talk about classmates.  I have no clue whatever happened to my yearbook.

If you look at my home page, you will see I wrote about my friend Sandi.  While flipping through the pages, I saw a picture and yelled,  “There is Sandi”.  Of course, I got out my phone and snapped two pictures so I could send them to Sandi.  Sandi lost her yearbook in a house fire many years ago.  Sandi was excited to see these pictures.

Debbie treated me to lunch at a really nice restaurant.  Thank you, Debbie.  For lunch and the whole day.

The day was quickly flying by but we still had a few hours to find something to do.  Shopping was one of the ideas we threw around.  Then she mentioned the beach.  I had no clue we were so close to the beach.  The beach it is.  Mickler’s Landing Beach as a matter of fact.

Mickler’s Landing Beachfront Park offers a full range of facilities and a beautiful beach for sunbathing, swimming, and searching for sharks’ teeth. The beach is located on the southern end of Ponte Vedra Beach and just north of the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve.

We walked down the beach.  The sand was packed so it was easy to walk and not get sand in my tennis shoes.  Beautiful mansions lined the beach.  We had a nice walk along the beach.

 

Mickler‘s Beach is dogfriendly.

 

It was windy and a little chilly but it was just right with jackets on.  The sun felt good on our faces.

This is the forth beach I visited since the hubby and I started our adventures.  I love the beach.

I had a lovely day yesterday.  Thanks again, Debbie. I hope we can do it again before I head North in April.
