Late in the afternoon, Andy suggested that we go to Okahumpka. If I didn’t get up and move around, I would take another nap. So, I jumped up and grabbed the car keys. We headed east on Highway 44 for just a couple of miles and I turned into the park. I found a shady parking space and we got out of the car. Then, Andy said, “I meant Okahumpka the town, not the park.
“Oh. Why didn’t you say anything when I turned in?” I don’t remember his response. Since we were there, we decided to take a one-mile lap around the park. Then we drove back to The Villages town center of Brownwood and got some ice cream at Scooples Ice Cream Shop.
Today was Andy’s 80-9/12 birthday. He had decided early in the day that he wanted to go out for ice cream rather that have me make a big mess in the galley and use a lot of water cleaning up. Fine by me.
This is the ice cream shop.
I liked this poster on the wall behind Andy.
Andy ordered a chocolate sundae and I ordered strawberry. They were huge but, we managed to eat all of it. His chocolate was very chocolatey and he was happy.
I snapped a picture of the ice-cream girls chatting.
I finally got half a birthday smile when he finished eating.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY 80 9/12 !!! I’m with you – chocolate all the way! Ice cream keeps you young & better than cake.

You should have seen the sly grin on his face when we walked out of the ice cream shop and I said, “That was too much ice cream”. He just grinned and said, “Yeah!”
Happy 80 9/12 birthday Andy!
