Natalie cooked Thanksgiving Dinner for us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was awesome. I had a total of 8 full plates of turkey with all the fixin's between Saturday and Monday. Michael picked up Rocky and I from Cortez on Friday. We arrived in Ft. Pierce shortly after dark. Rocky and Michael went online and we decided to try the "Sake Japanese and Thai Restaurant" in nearby Vero Beach. One of the dinner specials was Lobster Roll for $12.95. Michael and I ordered that. Rocky and Natalie ordered the Tempura Chicken. Natalie also ordered the Japanese Tempura Roll. We added Tempura Shrimp and Sushi to top it off along with some Sake. The presentation was Superb, as was the food. Truly a top notch dinner experience at a reasonable price for the quality and detail that was put into it. That was Friday. Saturday was the awesome Thanksgiving Dinner with Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Rolles, etc. On Monday, we went to our favorite local All-You-Can-Eat Chinese Buffet. I gorged on Crab Legs and Claws. We always have a great time when we visit Ft. Pierce and this was no exception. Laughter is good for the soul and we enjoy plenty of it when we're here.

7 November, 2005. Jason bought another boat from Shell Point Marina. On Sunday, Nov.6, we scavenged some parts and pieces from the four boats beside his. They were slated to be crushed and hauled away but we didn'tnow when. We returned on Monday just as the track hoe operator was preparing to dig into the first boat. We began scavenging some more as the operator began munching the boats with the track hoes jaws of death. He even tore up some sections of deck so we could get to a few stanchion plates.
