American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery in Orlando 1-5 March 2016

Located on Boggy Creek in Niceville, Florida

What an honor for Brooklyn Burbidge to be "Cinderella"
This lady remembers when she was 16 years old and Dr. Bean took a cyst out of her elbow at Eglin Airforce Base Hospital. We were stationed there 36 years ago. Now she is the principle of the Dance Academy in Niceville, Florida.
This Osceola Turkey met Elder Bean on his walk near Shingle Creek.
36 year reunion. These were fellow residents at Lackland Air Force Base. They came to Orlando for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.  
We had wonderful early bird dinner overlooking Boggy Bayou in Niceville Florida before going to see "Cinderella" ballet.
It is very rare that we see a turtle just outside our apartment door.
We had a great dinner at Florida Seafood when we drove to Cocoa on Leap Day.

Thank you Raymond's for the beautiful flowers for my birthday.
