My friend, Suzanne, and her husband, John, left TT Chesapeake Bay for Pennsylvania this morning. I will surely miss her. Except for our “week out”, the two of us spent hours every afternoon doing line dancing here at the Campground. Sometimes she showed me the steps; sometimes I showed her something I remembered. Then on the weekends I would teach other campers and Suzanne was always there to help.
Here is a group of beginners we had on Saturday

Here we are again doing Water Aerobics in spite of the cold, cold water!! BURRRRRRR!!!

Thanks again, Suzanne, for all of your help and for all the FUN we had!!! Hope to see you soon.


Good News!! Ken’s recovery from knee surgery is going very well. In fact, when we moved from the Richmond Elk’s Lodge back down to the Chesapeake Bay Campground on June 3rd, Ken is the one who drove the RV! We go into Gloucester for Physical Therapy two days a week – Ken for his knee and me for my hip which is still bothering me but is a lot better now.

A part of Ken’s therapy continues to be Wii Tennis. Here Rick and Mike came to challenge him, but ended up challenging each other! What a backhand!!!

A couple of weeks ago when we were riding around the campground on Mike’s golf cart, we saw Jenny and Gilbert (of the Golf Cart Race). Jenny had knee replacement surgery in February and has made remarkable progress.

Jenny and Ken could not resist the opportunity to compare knee surgery scars!!
This weekend Jenny tried her hand at Pickleball!! Maybe it won’t be too long before Ken is back on the court!

May 31 – While we were in Richmond for our “week out” from TT Chesapeake Bay, I discovered the Annual Greek Festival was being held in town. Even though Ken could not go, I called all of our hometown friends to see if anyone was going so I could join them. No one was going this year!!

A day later, our friends, Lois and Gene, called to say she had a great recipe for a Greek dish and invited us to their home for our own private Greek Festival!! We were also joined by friends Karen and Dennis. (The six of us have been friends for YEARS!!). It was great seeing them all again and having delicious Green Moussaka. Thanks, Lois and Gene.
Faye, Lois and Karen
Moussaka, made of eggplant, potatoes, eggs and who knows what else. UMMMMMMM!!
Incidentally, Lois is the friend to whom we gave a Purple Shamrock many years ago; and she, in return, gave us starter plants for Ken to give his daughters in Florida. Ken took a tiny bulb from one of those starter plants and planted it for us. (See March article, “Follow the Purple Shamrock”). I thought now would be a good time to show how much our Shamrock has grown.

Shamrock as it was in March and late May.
