Now, THESE are Friends!!!

Greetings from sunny Ft Myers!

We flew from KC to Ft Myers yesterday...and although it was rather bumpy, we made it safe and sound. Whew. I hate bumps, but I managed to hold it together for the sake of the kids.

We spent this morning hitting Walmart and Bed, Bath & Beyond, as we had NOTHING for this house! No silverware, plates, cups, pots, pans, food, cleaning supplies, etc. I am sure Sam Walton was grinning in his grave when he saw us roll out the front door with not one, but TWO carts piled with stuff.

We then spent the afternoon at the beach...where my hubby indulged his inner child and spent over an hour building a perfect Egyptian pyramid sand castle. Pictures will follow when I get home.

After dinner, we went to a fabulous restaurant, Doc Ford's, where we indulged in some delicious seafood...while we were there, Hubby got a text message from his boss, Kevin, asking him where we were at. (Now, keep in mind - hubby's boss ALSO has recently purchased a home here in Ft Myers - and in fact, was the one who had talked US into buying here.) Kevin had recently been at his home in Ft Myers but had returned to Kansas City.

Hubby texted back, "We're at your favorite restaurant, Doc Ford's...."

Kevin shot back, "Who's your waiter/waitress? They'd better be treating you good..."

We texted back that Kylie was indeed treating us well....

A few minutes later, Kylie walked up to our table with not one, but TWO desserts that we had not ordered, and said, "Are you friends of Kevin and Debbie's?"

A little confused, we said, "Yes.....why?"

She then said, "Well, they've picked up your tab and insisted that you have dessert, as well."

Well, blow me over with a feather. We were speechless.

THANK YOU, Kevin & Debbie! That was pretty awesome. A total surprise, and much appreciated! Our credit card was feeling the pinch after Walmart and BBB today, for sure!

See? Sometimes it pays off to text while at the dinner table!

Peace, everyone...hope you had a fabulous weekend!
