Tue Oct 8 - Today we went to have dinner with Ken's daughter, Tracy.  She has a suite in a most unique log cabin in Sanford, FL,  just east or Orlando.  The house actually belongs to her long-time friend, Chuck.  I will explain later how Tracy happens to be here.

Tracy welcomed us.  We were fascinated!

The living room has a really high cathedral ceiling and big stone fireplace.

Tracy took us upstairs to her suite.  This is her screened deck with a beautiful view overlooking the pool and out to the equestrian jumping pasture.  The stables are leased to one of Chuck's friends who has about 20 horses he raises and trains.  (We did not see them this trip.)

Tracy's wild and crazy bedroom with big overstuffed, comfortable furniture!

The balcony outside her suite is known as "The Cowboy Room", decorated with all kinds of western stuff.

The Cowboy balcony overlooks the enormous kitchen below, known as "The Cock" room and is decorated with all things Rooster!!

And the big beautiful living room.  I don't have a picture of the adjoining dining room, known as "The Elephant Room" with elephant decor!  How did I miss that??!!

We walked around the property and checked out the area where Chuck said we could hook up our RV if we come to stay for a few days.  Wonderful!!

How did Tracy happen to get here??:  Tracy and Chuck have been close, close friends for over 20 years.  Soul Mates, they say.  Chuck raises and sells Corgi and Australian Shepherd puppies on his ranch.

A few years ago Tracy started working for Chuck, helping to advertise and sell the puppies on a website she created called Royalty Puppies:  Http://  (Check it out.)  The collaboration was a success.  About a year ago, Tracy suggested that since Chuck was living alone in the big house, and she was living alone in an apartment and paying rent, why didn't he just give her room and board rather than paying her for the work she was doing for him.   So she moved into the suite, and gets to play with the puppies as much as she wants!!  Which is a lot, because they have about 50 puppies on the property!!!!

Thanks for a wonderful visit, Tracy and Chuck!!!
