RE: Rose Bowl Parade

Mardi: Sounds like you had a great time...so glad to see our Hawks win
the game...Was thinking about you earlier and wondered what kind of trip
home you had with this weather...well, at least now we know it's
winter!! Glad you are back safe and sound...

Subject: [CHAT] Rose Bowl Parade

>Iowa played in Florida again this year so Jim your wonderful state
has<br>>another great northern boost to your economy and in exchange
returns with<br>a<br>>victory. Mardi will need to fill us in on the
details when she returns.<br><br>Ceres and all, Tampa was a very
welcoming community to the Hawkeye fans.<br>Even the locals said
temperatures were warmer than normal (highs of 74 to<br>77 degrees -
sure beats the 6 above zero I woke up to at home this<br>morning!) And
winning the game didn't hurt, either. We'd been to three<br>Rose Bowls
and lost them all. Got to see the RB parade once - truly a not<br>to be
missed activity in the future if we're out that direction.<br>Tried to
tour the Sunken Gardens in St. Pete's because we were in
the<br>neighborhood, but it was closed for a special function. Too bad -
it drove<br>me nuts looking at all the plantings and not knowing what
they were. LOTS<br>of difference between zone 4 and 10! Recognized the
hibiscus, and that was<br>about it. Didn't get to the arboretum with 300
kinds of palms (DH might<br>have balked at that one) but we did get to
walk on the beach, get our feet<br>wet, and pick up shells.<br>Excellent
trip until we got back to Cedar Rapids which was fogged in.<br>Diverted
to Rochester MN and bused back, got home at 7PM instead of
10AM!<br>Guess it just made for a longer vacation.<br>Boy, were the cats
glad to see us. Catsitters just aren't the same.<br>Mardi<br>Iowa
