Plastic Jungle Cruise

Someone asked Uncle Bert's class where wood comes from and one of the students promptly replied, "plastic!" I suspect these are well traveled children who have see the plastic forests at the Happiest Place on Earth! I am getting a little jaded but, during our recent visit I couldn't help but ask myself, "why do people come here to see replicas of the world, rather then visiting the world."

This will be a fast and busy week with new and exotic photo opportunities.

Looking for a reason

Sushi and champagne, I am looking for a reason to celebrate. Spring would be a good one. I didn't snow here, but it was cold enough to make a penguin feel at home. Quiet week for DG, he will be in the office trying to get far enough ahead to make it through April without going nuts. The first week in April we are going to Puerto Rico for 49 hours. Lots of things going on locally in the second week.

Ya'all have fun!

Why do they make us wait?

All I wanted was a nice cold glass of water, DG was waiting for a diet coke. Why do they make me wait for the kitchen to squirt his glass full of sweet and sticky, when all I want is ice and water. Simple enough, it reminds me of home. So we sat there and waited watching this nice young couple with 2.6 children at the table across from us. Mom was flustered with the kids, Dad was checking his office email on his Blackberry. The youngest .6 was desperate for attention. When crawling under the table and climbing up on Dad's lap didn't work, he sat in his chair and put his feet up on the table with one foot landing squarely in the middle of his father's salad. Dad simply pushed the child and salad away and returned to his email. Why did Dad even bother to come and wait for his ice water, he could have ignored his children back in the office and gotten his ice water faster.


Internet Explorer 7 has taken up a nasty habit of disconnecting me from my ISP connection when I am working on blogger, Firefox works much-much better.

Rodents on Vacation

You never know where you are going to run into rodents these days. They let them into the best places. I think these two made it in Hollywood or won the lottery or robbed dear aunt Matilda of her dowry.

Visiting an old neighbor

When we are home for a few days it is always fun to stop in and visit with old friends and neighbors.
