Another Spring Blossom

The Salvia Greggii in our front are in full bloom…

On Our Way

As you read this, Betty, Jessie and I are on our way to get out of a year of COVID confinement.

We’re driving to St. George Island, Florida to spend a week enjoying the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. It’s an island off the panhandle of Florida East of Destin. We used to go to St. George Island several times during the 1990s and always loved it.

We decided to drive so we could take Jessie. She loves the water and this will be her first, and most likely only, time experiencing the ocean.

It’s a long drive and it will take us two and a half days, but we will see some of God’s country we’ve never seen before.

So, I’m not sure when I’ll get another post until after we’ve been on the island for a day or so. And, if I get really lazy I may not have another post until we return and we won’t be home and settled until May 20.

So, be careful and keep your hands out of the cookie jar while we’re gone.

Good News Wednesday

This orchestra definitely needed a new member and they were very gracious when he joined them…

What Can I Say?

What can I say to describe a woman who has put up with me for almost 54 years of marriage, plus 6 years of commitment before that? What can I say to describe a woman who gave birth to two sons while I was sailing around the world in the Navy and she never complained? What can I say to describe a woman who willingly picked up her roots when I needed to go to graduate school then several job changes throughout my career? What can I say to describe a woman who to this very day still says “I love you” to me and I know she means it.

There is much I could say, but on this special day I will say “Happy Birthday” with all the love in my heart, mind and soul…

It’s May!

If you’ve ever owned a cat, you know this is true…

Don’t you hate it when this happens to you…

In America it’s O-possum, Possums are found in New Zealand…

Have to have a Star Trek funny…

Now, some food oriented funnies…

They misspelled ‘Orc’ but we now know what happens with all those dead Orcs killed in the Lord of the Rings…

Truly amazing…

So true…

And Wilson didn’t get nominated for an Oscar…

Speaking of the Oscars, my thoughts exactly…

Finally, a great story of generosity and remembrance…

To make sure this is not just a fable, I checked and this memorial to that event was erected in a park in County Cork, Ireland in 2017…
