Frank and I drove to Lake Wales, Dundee, and Winter Haven to look at the places we used to go to 43 years ago. The same motel that Lue, Dood, Bob, Babe and I stayed in the 1970s was still there - the Camilia.
60 years ago today: Elvis was inducted into the U.S. army.

We drove the 2½ hours to West Palm Beach where we saw the Nationals play the Houston Astros. We saw Bryce Harper, Altuve, Correa, Springer and the other starters of the world champion's team. It is a beautiful new park and it was a perfectly sunny day. When the game ended, we drove back on roads that cut through cattle and cow country. We saw Lake Okeechobee.

We drove to Bradenton. We looked at the river walk and then drove to the beaches and took some picture of the Gulf. We went to the 1 o'clock game between the Pirates and the Phillies. If the Pirates don't play any better than what we saw, it is going to be a long season.
