We are back from Florida-dee. I have no idea who these people are, I just fell in love with the lady’s yellow hat. She has no idea I was stalking her cheery floppy sunny yellow hat. We have been in Venice, Florida since January 31st, which is why I have not been commenting and visiting blogs. I missed doing the blog thing but it was a nice break and we were just so busy playing in the sand, eating FOOD and shopping. We also met up with Nancy from Spirit Lights the Way blog and her BFF for the second time. First time here. We had a most excellent afternoon with them and I got to meet Tigger their sweet faced kitty. We cruised Anna Maria Island and walked the Pier. Then we went back to their charming villa and had a bit of Missouri wine, tasty snacks that Nancy made and Heavenly Cupcakes.
Have I mentioned how busy we were eating food? Grouper sandwiches, sesame encrusted salmon, grouper sandwiches, loaded hot dogs at the jetty in Venice, all the deli goodies from The Publix which is my most favorite FOOD store in Venice, grilled grouper, fried grouper, blackened grouper.. well you have the idea.
I do know who this person is and I know that he was a very happy person in Florida-dee. This happy person wants to spend the rest of his life in Florida, walking the beach, finding shark teeth and wearing shorts ALL THE TIME! No COLD weather clothes for this guy. I hope he remembers to take me when he spends the rest of his life in Florida.
I want to live in this house if the happy person up above does not forget to take me. I walked past this house every day on my way to downtown Venice. Had to walk walk walk so I could keep eating eating eating grouper sandwiches. I would of course have to change the name of this blog to Under the Palms. No problem!
I wanted to bring this guy back but he wouldn’t fit in our vehicle. He would have made a great lawn ornament and a refreshing change to the rural landscape of The Tiny Ten. So happy will be me to be back visiting your blogs and commenting cause I have missed all of you and I have lots to say don’t ya know!
I did want to say that all of you caught in the ice and snow storm in the south, Georgia and the Carolinas, Virginia and moving up the coast, well I am hoping you all get your power back quickly and you are all safe and haven’t suffered property damage. We had a little experience with that storm traveling through Atlanta, Chattanooga and Nashville. Thinking of you all!
