Yes good friends – Friday night Fish Fry is back – up and running as from last Friday. I know I told you back some time ago – before Christmas I think – that it was coming back but it actually happening now for sure. We rarely ever go ourselves but I know it is a great draw for many visitors so this will be a big boost.
Tuesday nights at The Buccaneer are another very popular destination with their live music – I hear that you need ideally to book a table so call 242 332 2000 to do just that. While you are there pop in the shop and have a look at the prints that they are selling to raise more money for the Governors Harbour Fire and Rescue fund. The originals were painted by my brother in law – Bob Billingsby – 5 years ago and then back in the UK he had them made into prints. Well we gave a few away to our renters and then they were put on the top shelf of a cupboard and pretty much forgotten until I was sorting through the cupboard with Jane last week. I decide to donate them to the cause and asked Michele Johnson if they would sell them in their shop. Sorry we cannot ship these so you have to come here and purchase them in person. A bargain at $25 each with a small discount for buying 3 or more.
Bob met up with the lovely Shelby White the other day and presented her with a Fire and Rescue T shirt as a small token of thanks for her very generous support to the cause. She instantly popped it on and modeled it beautifully.
Shelby is a very interesting woman – she has been coming to Eleuthera since the late sixties and has owned a home here since 1985 – maybe I can talk her into a short interview for the blog as she has many stories to tell I know !
Jane, my sister has now returned to England – she has been the most amazing help to me over the month she was here – I think that we have broken the back of the sorting and packing – although there is still the attic to tackle – that will be a marathon and I am calling in the troops for assistance !
Sprawling Towers is progressing well – a slight delay for us as the ceiling insulation has been held up because the truck that sprays the foam has a technical hitch. But it shouldn’t be long – then the sheet rock can go up. Bob and I have pretty much finalized the plans for the built in library shelves in the long hallway – that will be exciting when that construction starts. Did I mention that when we were in Palm Beach the other week we found a fabulous bookstore called Assouline that sells large format coffee table books – along with a beautiful stand to look through them on ? Well we managed to not buy any just yet but they are on the list !
We are nipping over to Ft Lauderdale again next week as I have to have a 10 week check up with the orthodontist to see how my Invisalign is working. I am hideously motivated to do exactly as I am told and I do see a small difference already. The app on my phone tells me I have 238 days to a perfect smile !!!! I am trying to not plan too much at all for this trip – like I have said before – we have forgotten how to relax and we need to spend a little time remembering how to do that.
So take care everybody and have a great week….
