Wednesday, February 8, 1989
Cordele GA to St. Petersburg, Fla.
Start by sunup – 7:30. To Auburn for breakfast. Temp. kept rising so it was 68 by the time we got to Ocala. Called Oakhurst Apartments for directions which we found were right but mileage were grossly exaggerated so saw most of fast-growing Ocala before found 30001 SE Lake Wieir Road. no one home at apt. but as we were leaving a man drive in. Was Mildred Grigsby’s son-in-law, John Thomas. The family won’t be here until Feb 20. He seldom comes home for lunch but arrived just when we needed him.
Wanted to go to Homosassa Springs but decided not time enough. Arrived at Bratten’s about 4:00. Vivian had a nice chuck roast dinner and we visited and visited as usual. Neighbor brought her 9-month-old son over for a visit. He’s trying to walk.
