Friday Meanderings

Happy Friday!

It’s been a great week!

Shrimpapalooza was last Saturday.

So much fun!

And our first time in the Shrimpapalooza Parade!

The day started with breakfast at the Old Mill–the only day of the whole year that they serve breakfast!

Breakfast at Old Mill
(yeah, breakfast and bloody marys)



By now, you might know that the Shrimpapalooza is all about celebrating everything SHRIMP!

It starts with a parade.  Since Old Homosassa is a golf cart community, there might be a few golf carts involved, or maybe 50!

That looks kinda creepy but it’s SHRIMP COCKTAIL on top of a golf cart!

And friends.

Here’s a bunch of walking shrimp and monkeys from Monkey Island!

Nice outfit, Sunday!

I have no idea why there is an Ape in the Shrimpapalooza! But he was very popular!

And then there was a festival!  Lots of fun and food vendors selling SHRIMP!

Terry and I took our turn at working in the Old Homosassa Heritage Council Booth.  We have three really great raffles, new 2017 t-shirts, and THE AMAZING RACE!


The AMAZING RACE starts on April 23rd with a kick-off party at Village Toyota-Cadillac.  $25 and you get into the race and a free t-shirt or poster.  This is going to be FUN!  Clues will be given every week. The race ends on June 11th. The winners will be getting CASH!  And I’m not on that committee so you can’t bribe me to get the clues early!

So what else went on this week????

Terry and I went to the Citrus County Mosquito Control Board’s Open House.  Now, this sounds like a lame outing, but it was great!  I thought we’d see some displays and there’d be some handouts.  But this was a walking tour with a guide.  We got to see all the inner workings of their operation.  Even the helicopter!  This is a group that is doing a great service for our county. I’m sorry I didn’t get any photos.

Spent some time at the Learning Center.  No.  I spent a LOT OF TIME at the Learning Center.  But it was fun. We have a new little girl that came in on Wednesday to learn how to sew.  OMG!  She was so excited and listened to everything I said.  And that kid was sewing!  Her brother is in the guitar class and he is the best guitar student.

Also started our new adult “Sew Cool! Workshop”.  Faith Peix, our instructor was a bit worried about leading the class but did a great job.  We still have room for a few more sewist!  Doesn’t matter what level you are at in the sewing world, you will fit in!  Thursday, 12:30 – 3:00.  At the Learning Center.  Right across from the Homosassa Elementary School.

Have a great weekend!
