In his spare time ~ which he had so little of ~ he worked in the groves mowing. He found it relaxing and enjoyed "working on the land". We've been reading his "Daytimer" from a few years before he passed away and he had a lot "on his plate". We didn't realize it back then ~ I guess it's because he was so quiet and not a complainer ~ always extremely optimistic. He worked tirelessly managing TWO Companies simultaneously (a Ford Dealership AND a Construction Company) and also his Orange Grove. In addition to that ~ he was on numerous Committees at Church and on the City's Planning and Zoning Board.
Did you notice me in the "Easter Portrait" of the four daughters? I'm the one wearing the Easter Dress sitting on the tricycle with my hat lopsided on my head. I was such a "tom boy" and lived on my tricycle dawn to dusk. I usually wore a hard hat while riding my Tricycle ~ but I guess since it's Easter ~ I wore an Easter Bonnet. Wait until you see a picture of me in a hard hat ~ it's hilarious. Well, my family enjoys talking about my bright silver aluminum hard hat ~ so I might as well just post it on my Blog.
I think Manya did a Fabulous job on the Video and even added special effects including "waves" for the Beach scenes. Did I mention that Lauren's friend is only 10 years old? Please leave a comment ~ I know that she would really appreciate hearing your (positive) feedback about her Video. Of course, you know I treasure each and every comment that I receive!!
