Boy oh Boy was it cold last night.  When boondocking you don’t use the furnace too much as the battery runs the blower fan.  It was pretty cool inside when I turned the furnace on this morning.

We woke up to have our host, Terry tell us about a minor disaster.  Remember the chickens from yesterday?  They started the crowing at 5 AM, but we went right back to sleep.  It seems Mr. Fox found a nest of 10-11 eggs with the mother keeping the eggs warm, Terry found feathers and small egg fragments.  He was considering taking the eggs into his shed last night and put them under a light due to the cold, but was worried the hen might not take them back.  Mama hen put up a fight and lost some of her feathers, she will be okay, but all the eggs got eaten.

Look right in the middle and you will see another hen.  She has 2-3 chicks with her.

In the late morning we went to the Mulberry Phosphate Museum for about 90 minutes.  It was real interesting to learn about phosphate mining in south central Florida.

Didn't know where phosphates were uses until now.

After an afternoon of light work around the fifth wheel we went out to diner with out hosts Sharon & Terry.  We went to Manny’s Chop House in Lakeland.  We were so lucky Manny was there and Terry and Sharon know him, the food was great.  We enjoyed talking with them about the missions they have worked on and Terry’s parents have.

Our hosts Sharon & Terry for three nights.
