Gosh, it’s hard to believe it was a year ago today that Mom passed. Wasn’t sure how I’d be doing today, but it was OK. Probably helped that I took a couple of road trips this weekend.
Sunday I went oppositely, to Davenport, Haines City, Winter Garden and Lake Wales. Finally got to see Bok Tower, which is pretty amazing. Mom and I got there on one of our last trips, but it was 6 pm when we arrived, so the gates were closed. I know she was with me as I finally got to see the tower and the grounds.
Oh, and goat milk fudge! So when I used to go down to Miami regularly, I’d mostly use US 27, ’cause it’s cheaper and more scenic than the Turnpike. I used to pass this place that sold goat milk fudge, and always meant to get some, but never did. In recent trips, I saw it was still there. Yesterday I at last stopped there and got some. Webb’s Candy Factory, it is. Fudge tasted good, not at all goaty. And I highly recommend getting ice cream. One scoop is nearly a pint! And for 2.95, not bad.
Nearly 600 photos got, and several more stamps in my Florida State Parks passport. Two-thirds done, huzzah!
Anyway, there have been ups and downs this past year, but mostly I’ve muddled through. What the future brings, that’ll be interesting.
