|Have a wonderful day!!!!|
The weatherman missed the forecast. It was suppose to be partly cloudy and in the 70s but it was overcast and didn't get out of the 60s, along with that it drizzled on and off all day.

We started the day off by going to the J5 club house for donuts and coffee along with socializing with the J5 residents. During the get together they gave out door prizes and made announcements to remind people of things that are going on in the park.
We have a very small drawer in the RV that we use as a junk drawer, in this drawer we also keep a few tools like screw drivers and pliers. The other day Larry needed a small phillips screwdriver and since we didn't have one in the junk drawer we had to dig the toolbox out which is a bit of a pain. This morning our first stop was at Northern Tool, at home we don't have a Northern Tool and Larry loves walking through these types of stores to see what they have. We looked at the screwdrivers but they werer not what he wanted. The next stop was Harbor Freight. He found a screwdriver that he liked and bought it. The next stop was McAllen Library. Last year when we were here we went to the library to watch our YouTube videos so that's what we did today. We were there for about an hour. On the way home we stopped by Wendy's for lunch. Larry and I shared a Chicken Pecan Salad. Last year when we were here we had donated $2.00 dollars to Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and they gave us a key tag and everytime you visit a Wendy's during 2017 you can get a free Jr. Frosty. So we had one for dessert.
During the afternoon we hung around the Minnie, Larry read and I worked on my annual book.
In the evening we went to Tropic Star to attend Joe Saltel's Pre New Year's Eve Dance. There were Pre Rounds 7:00 to 7:30, the dance was 7:30 to 9:30. In between each square dancing tip one round was cued. It was a black and white dance and most people wore black and white attire. Our friends Glen and Char always wear tie dyed shirts that are very colorful and tonight they showed up with black and white tie dyed shirts. Glen usually wears shorts but it was cold so he surprised us by wearing long pants. We hadn't seen them in a long time so it was nice to see them. Before attending the dance you had to buy tickets so Joe and his wife, Chris would know about how many people were attending. When you bought the tickets you were assigned a table. On each table they had hats, tiaras, horns and a small bag of candy. There were eight people at each table. At 9:00 pizza was served, each table got two pizzas so everyone could have two pieces of pizza. While we ate Joe entertained us by singing. There were almost 21 squares and a few round dancers. After we ate pizza we welcomed in a new year with horns and singing. Then we had the first tip of year. We had an outstanding time.
