CHOCOLATE, CLEARANCE and CONNECTION
CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL

My friend Harriet is a great one for finding interesting things to do at little or no cost.

This past Thursday I joined her for a Chocolate Festival that was held at Stratford Court in Boca Raton. I was more interested in seeing this senior living community then indulging in the chocolate refreshments. Most people I know love chocolate, I can take it or leave it!

Upon arrival we were greeted with live music and lots of Valentine decorations. Once I was there, I thought, "it seems to me that one of my friends from up north might have relocated to this community."

I searched the crowd and sure enough SHE is a resident!! She gave us a mini tour and filled us in on her new life style. From what she told us there are many activities she enjoys, the meals are very good but unfortunately she has gained weight!

When it came time to participate in the chocolate festival, there were two fountains, one had dark chocolate and one had white.

I must admit I had fun dipping the various fruits, cookies, cakes and pretzels in the chocolate!

CLEARANCE at SEARS

When you go with Harriet you just don't go to one event, there is always something else on the agenda - She asked if I won't mind going to Sears, big sale going on. - Sure -



We poked around and I found a zippered sweater with a hood, originally priced at $48.00 - now reduced to $9.00, less 30% which made the cost of the sweater $7.00!! What a deal!!

Since it was such a small amount I decided to pay cash for the sweater. The salesclerk asked if I had a charge at Sears, "No, I don't." Well, she said if I open an account I would get the sweater at no charge!!!

I opened an account and then she informed me that when you open an account you get a credit on your acccount of $15.00.

Not only did I get the sweater at no charge, I now have a credit on my account of $8.00. Looks like I'll be going back to Sears!


CONNECTION

The next day I attended a show at my clubhouse, "Let's Hang On." The theme of the show was, "A Tribute to Frankie Valli."

Four young men took center stage and started singing some memorable songs from the 60's.



As soon as they appeared on stage I was taken with their clean-cut looks, no beards, no mustaches, hair cuts from the 60's and suits and skinny ties from that era. Immediatly I thought of my husband who dressed like that when he went to work, had that kind of haircut and would never stop wearing those skinny ties.

I was tapping my toes and smiling all over the place.

The show also had two lovely young ladies who sang, at one point they left the stage and invited two men to dance with them.

My thought was, "I hope that lead young man does that too - I want to dance with him." I have been to many shows at my complex but never had such a clear thought!

Well, what do you know - he did leave the stage and came right over to me and said, "I saw your great smile and want to dance with you!!"

I can't tell you the name of the song, whatever it was, it was wonderful!! (I sound like a teen-ager)

When they did their final number they came down from the stage and what do you know, he came over to me and thanked ME for the dance!

I'm still flying high!!

I think I'll move to Florida. You are having the time of your life while I have trouble remembering what day it is because they are all the same. Good for you, Millie.
 
Looks like you all got the message - I am having an especially good time here this winter. Even when I am not doing anything special, it's just great knowing I'm missing one of the worst winters up north.

You say you are having trouble remembering what day it is because they are all the same.

I have trouble remembering what day it is because they all go so quickly.

We all have our troubles!! ;-)
 
What fun!!! The chocolate festival sounds like oodles of fun. I love chocolate and finding an old friend must have felt like a bonus! The sweater you found for next to nothing...oh wait, it was nothing :-) is really cute. I would have loved the Frankie Valli show. I was a teenager in the 60s.
 
Just goes to show, Millie. Flirting never goes out of style. Enjoy every moment!
