Dec. 31st. and New Years Eve.

On December 31st. Dianne and I found ourselves visiting our friends Preston and Mary Blake in Gainesville Florida. This was the first stop in our planned 3 month stay in this sunny state away from the cold snd the snow of Canada this time of year.

Of course, how could a couple of keen RC'ers get together on a warm day like that without planning a flying session. So we called another mutual friend, Gerry Dale from Ocala to join us.

Late afternoon we were joined by our wives and we all went to Casey's restaurant for dinner in Archer Fl. a little town about 20 miles west of Gainesville and very close to the RC field. Here we had a good time together and a very nice meal and brought in the New Year in an appropriate way.
