I didn't mention that I was going on vacation yet again. You kids are worse than my employees ragging me on always taking time off to go hither tither and yon. The difference is my leaving them is actually a cause for celebration. Not once has any of my fine staff mentioned that they would rather I stay because they miss my soft fluttering voice and mild manner ways when I am absent.
You folks inquire about my potential demise at the hands of SCM when I disappear which although a tad macabre is most appreciated.
Currently I am on Marcos Island for the week. Unfortunately when I packed I neglected to include Hurricane gear which would have come in very handy. Although not technically a hurricane with one of those benign sounding names that still manage to kick the shit out of anything in their path, it is still very windy and by no means beach weather.
As you can see from the photos, I don't think the pool chairs were gingerly placed in the bushes in the event some nature lover felt the need to bond with the lizards and other tropical creatures.
The sun is out this morning and we are going to try to battle the 20 mile per hour wind gusts in an attempt to fight our way to the gulf front. We are nothing if not persistent.
