Another Farewell Party this time in Ft Myers

My friend, Becky, has accused me of travelling FL in search of farewell parties.  LOL  This past weekend I went to FT Myers to visit my sister Shirley and BIL Doug before they migrate toward TN.  It happens that they were having their farewell party at their condo so why not.  Good food and entertainment.

I arrived on Saturday around noon and we visit for a while and then hit the pool.  The food came out around 5 which consisted of hamburgers and hotdogs provided by the condo association.  Residents furnished all the other goodies with potluck dishes.  Lots of good food, oh I mentioned that already didn't I.
Colorful umbrellas decorate the lawn.

Yummy side dishes

A big turno

People in the food line.
After everyone ate and cleaned up it was time for the entertainment to begin.  Sam, a talented resident, had written a skit for the last three years and the "entertainers" came from the residents of Pinewood.  The skit was the last installment of Bob and Sue who had met Behind the Dumpsters, went on their Honeymoon and finally They lived Happily Ever After.  No telling what he will come up with next year.

Cindi Lauper w/Back Up Singers.  She's had 2 knee replacements.

Some of the "entertainers" were: Frank Sinatra, Dolly Parton, Chuck Barry, John Travolta, Olivia Newton John, Cindy Lauper, Nancy Sinatra, and Dean Martin w/back-up singers. 
A very entertaining night.

Here we are:

Next day we went downtown and walked on the riverwalk for a while and then to eat at Joe's Crab Shack.  I took a few of my Tervis Tumblers back to the store and swapped them out for new ones.  Tervis has a 100% guarantee and it's truly no hassle.

Sedona stayed with Margie, Roger, Anne and Buddy.  Margie stayed in communication with me via email and text sending me messages and pictures from Sedona.  Ahhh, how sweet!
Please share w/me, Roger.

Roger is surrounded w/love and no fights!

I believe Margie said Sedona was watching Beverly Hills Chi.

 Thanks Margie.

You are saving room for a "medium" margarita aren't you???

Maybe I'm wrong, but it looks to me like you had two plates full of food at the party.

Loved the videos.
