Happy in Florida

Not so daily, anymore, is it? I have taken a break from the daily writing for the KRuMB that has lasted, quite by accident for nearly a year.  It was unintentional, and although the “freedom” has been kind of nice, the void is too great.  I miss it.  So, here I am… no guarantees right now … no solid daily commitment …let’s see how it goes. In fact, let’s see if I even remember how to attach a photo to my written words!

Currently, I am in Florida visiting my mama. We are doing our best this week, to honor my grandmother’s memory and celebrate her birthday. Gammy would have been 100 years old tomorrow. We’ve gone shopping, took a trip in the RV to see a broadway-quality show, played card games, had a few political debates, and just generally enjoyed one another’s company. My week here is passing very quickly.

As a proper resident of central Florida, my mama has decorated one of the bathrooms in her lovely home in Mickey Mouse style.  Wallpaper border, shower curtain and other accessories all display the Mouse and I, of course, love it.  For years, one of the things that has amused me greatly is a framed postcard on the wall, that depicts Mickey and Minnie at the park, and carries the printed words, “We’re happy in Florida.”  It always makes me grin because it seems to me to be a little less “we’re vacationing in FL and wanted you to know” and a little more, “we’ve retired to Florida and aren’t ever coming home!”  And, in fact, that’s very true about my mother—she really is happy in Florida and it shows!

My photo is of Mama and John at the restaurant where we had dinner tonight.  I think they are pretty cute.

Dinner

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

dinnerThe daughter of a dear friend  passed tragically, suddenly and completely unexpectedly after contracting an illness which progressed into an infection very quickly. The lapse of time between contracting the illness and passing away was approximately 10 hours. My heart goes out to her parents, who should never have to outlive their children, her husband and her two very young children.

 

Terrill & I met in a local bar and drank a couple of pints in her memory this evening. As a result, I missed dinner out with Stephen and my wife, so had to content myself with homemade nachos.

 

Cheers.

11,285

28 April 2010

It was a Pub Guys night and there was trivia afterwards. The rest of the day is gone from my memory. But what does remain is this photo … proof that Pidge won at least one of the trivia games on this evening, and won handily, at that! 11,285 is a score to be proud of! That might even stay on that leader board for a while!

How’s this for an exciting photo?

That’s my hand hard at work. I had to write a How-To document on inserting an SD card into the MC9063 HandHeld Scanning device. For that document, I had to have photos. So, there we have it.
Cheers.
