There is a direct correlation between how active I’m in the community and the quantity and quality of my blog posts. Seems every day there’s a meeting, a volunteer session, or I need to update one of the community websites. So I apologize for the lack of posts. I’m still here, just out and about.
Terry is even more involved than me. I’m not up for physical labor–he’s out there moving concrete patio tables and marking lines on the road. Me, I’ll stick with my computer work!
So what exactly is going on this month???
Black Diamond is having an Invitational Car Show tomorrow. We’ll be there in the AM.
In the PM we’ll be at the Blues & BBQ in Old Homosassa. The last two years have been cold or rainy at this outdoor event. This year we are having unseasonably warm weather. I’ll go for shorts and tanks over sweat pants and gloves anyday!
The Stone Crab Jam is in Crystal River Saturday evening. We hear that this is the best festival of the year in Crystal River.
Next weekend is the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival. At the Festival we have “Shades of Gray” entertaining us from 11:30 to 1:30 then Cat Valentine from 2:00 to 5:00 on Saturday. On Sunday Rick Standard will perform from noon until 2 and then “Under the Willow” takes over. All of our crafts and arts booths are FULL. We have mermaid t-shirts and posters for sale. And all that yummy food. Don’t even think about going anywhere else! Unless, of course, it’s over to the Shed where my favorite band “Sarasota Slim” is performing both days.
When you come to the Festival stop by the Old Homosassa Heritage Council booth and get a t-shirt and a raffle ticket. Money goes to restore the water tower.
Also, the Learning Center is having a raffle for the original art work by Gil Watson for the t-shirts and posters. $5.00! I’m volunteering at the Learning Center now. So this one is personal to me, also. Hmmmm, now I’m thinking I should be suggesting that you NOT get those raffle tickets. Cause I want to win that painting.
And one final note, the next crime watch meeting in Old Homosassa is November 23rd. Mark your calendar! This is a really informative meeting. If you live in Old Homosassa, you should be there!
Have a great weekend!
