February 28, 2008 Lakeland, FL
We went to Lakeland today, just a short hop down I-4. We had lunch with some friends from the Montana Owners Club. They are full timers who spend their winters near Clearwater, FL. Glenn and Lorraine were the Wagonmasters at last fall's MOC Rally in Goshen, IN. They have been full timing for several years, now, and I learn a lot by picking their brains. We are similar couples - Glenn and I have no problem mixing in a group of strangers and Carol and Lorraine are both quiet and shy ladies. We have learned so much from them about RVing and the RV lifestyle and never miss a chance to learn more. While in Lakeland, we were near Joker Merchant Stadium, the Spring Training home for the Detroit Tigers. They were scheduled to play Toronto today but, since we were at lunch with friends, we will go to another Tiger game this spring. It is only a half hour away and the Tigers have so much that we want to see this year. They were very good last year and added some great missing pieces over the winter. I have to believe that they will make it to the Big Dance again this year. We have some friends here at Mouse Mountain from the Cleveland area so we may go together and see a Tigers/Indians game. Two contenders that should make for great baseball. We went to Karaoke tonight here at Mouse Mountain and some of these people are really good singers. It is not like the barroom singing that we have seen and heard in the past. These people are sober and just having a ball. I'd like to hear Carol sing at one soon. Maybe she will join the choir here at the park so that she can join in on the fun with these other folks and we can all benefit from her singing.
