Once again we enjoyed one of our favorite January events. We attended the SEACA
Regional Rally at Seffner, Florida which is close to the RV Supershow at the Tampa Fairgrounds.

Many thanks to Ray and Pauline Shea and their committee for a job well done! Our Missouri Valley member Dorothy Strunk was promoted from Vice-President to President of the Southeast Chapter.
Congratulations Dorothy… this will give Pauline a break. Ronnie and I took time to travel ten miles to Plant City for some of their locally grown strawberries. Ronnie bought a flat for me (so nice to have
a man to pay for everything)

By the way – I think I have one of the best ten-minute jam recipes out there:

Large microwave proof bowl~ 16 oz more or less fresh berries
1/2 cup sugar~ 1 TBSP lemon juiceJ fresh or bottled
Wash and slice berries into small pieces~ put into bowl
stir in 1/2 cup sugar> microwave on high 5 minutes~ STIR
microwave another 5 minutes on high (UNCOVERED OF COURSE)
remove from oven> stir in lemon juice~ it will thicken as it
cools~ put in jar~ refrigerate> ENJOY!!!

OOPS I got sidetracked. Once again we prearranged for Kevin Mallory of Cruising America to come by our 05 Eagle and do some adjustment to our Pressure Pro (tire pressure) unit. It is a real plus at the rallies to have problems taken care of. Thank you Kevin for being there.
Go outside without your phone or headphones and soak up your surroundings.
Try to see the smallest> most unique part of your environment. Then look for the most majestic. When we rush through our days~ we miss so much of what’s around us. There is strength in the smallest details of our experiences.
Until we meet again~
