MICHAEL, NATALIE AND ROXANNE'S HOME, FORT PIERCE, FL
11-15 May, 2004. Rocky has known Michael and Natalie since he grew up in Southern Illinois. Roxanne is their daughter, who is now 12 years old. They've become very good friends of mine over the years. Shortly after we first moved to Florida (arriving on Christmas Morning, 1997), Michael donated 3 trucks for the Florida Red Ribbon (bicycle) Ride to support HIV / AIDS research. Rocky, Michael and I also donated 3 days of our time to drive the trucks. Also, when Rocky and I moved to Northern California, Michael, Natalie and Roxanne moved to Southern Oregon, just a short drive away. Rocky and I saw a UFO one evening during the drive to visit them in Medford, Oregon. They are now managing the White Caps Motel / Apartment complex on Fort Pierce Beach. There's a bar / restaurant right next door called Archies. We had fresh fish there one day and awesome barbeque ribs (cooked by Pete, one of the tenants at White Caps) another day. I spent every evening at the beach. I love the beach! We had a great time with them and hope to stop back by on our way out of Florida.
