All Things Well on the Eastern Front

We had a great extended holiday weekend down at Daughter #2’s apartment.  Had a great time and of course ate too much!  Why does everything seem to involve food?  What party or event did you last attend that didn’t include food?

We ate at a local favorite, Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour and had ice cream sundaes the size of your head!  The place was hopping, had a waiting line to get in, but it was worth the wait.  Fun experience

Saw the fireworks show from her apartment balcony, so we didn’t have to deal with the traffic or the crazy crowds.  Got a bit of shopping in, and otherwise relaxed and played some trivia which we all enjoyed especially Grannie.

One thing we learned about our family, too many chiefs and no Indians makes for an interesting weekend!


  1. Sounds like you guys had a good time.

  2. Izzy,

    A friend of mine's ex husband owns Jaxsons Ice Cream, nice place to go on a hot day :-) Did ya'll have a chance to visit the beach?

    I miss South Florida, it's been 11 years since I've been back. There's probably all kinds of changes.

    I'm happy to hear you had a wonderful time on your visit.

    1. We didn't get to visit the beach, we figured since it was a holiday weekend, it would be too packed. We've been gone about 9 years now, and there's a lot of changes for sure. Unfortunately, we saw more blight. A building once a hospital now unused, windows missing, etc. Right at the Glades interchange. We saw some construction, old malls torn down and some new construction beginning (Palm Beach Mall). Freeway system is also different, you now have to pay for the fast lane.


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
