Tuesday Tidbits


Just your typical Florida family SUV.  On the left a yuppie sticker we have all seen picturing the family members.  In the middle a Save The Turtle emblem and on the right your average family assault rifle sign.

+++++++++++++++

One of my regrets is being so dependent on my Polaroid camera for years.  It was expensive to take pictures.  I now wish I'd had a film camera and taken a 100 pics a day.

Nestled in the greenery on the patio at Bedlam.  Tough to tell but it is a frog.

++++++++++++

One need only look at the past couple weeks for evidence of media bias, or at the least, a kind of lop-sided slant on things.  Thirty people were killed and 100 injured by suicide bombers in Belgium and the news was wall to wall coverage for three days. 

The next week seventy women and children are killed with 300 injured by a suicide bomber in Pakistani and it barely makes a ripple in the news.

Norah and I were out on the tennis courts chasing tossed tennis balls when this guy flew overhead.  It is not uncommon.  We are close to the airport and the Coast Guard has a fleet of planes there.  Most days they fly around on the same path - probably practise.  

++++++++++++


My cabin in the woods has been sprayed for pesky bugs that seem to take over when you've been gone for awhile.  Noticed a couple spiders when last there.  All set for a future return fairly soon.  There's one out front that the exterminator took care of last week. 

+++++++++++++

Did I mention that Bridge of Spies was very good?  If I did it bears repeating.

+++++++++++++






+++++++++++++




And finally, today, a lesson in perseverance and overcoming our problems.  This guy was outside a Five Guys taking handouts in the form of french fries from patrons.  Sometimes you just gotta make the best with the hand you are dealt.  Or in this case, the one leg.  Just remember, he may have been a little hobbled on land but when he flew it was with an unmistakable grace.

Sorry readers, but it's been about three months so I will likely take next week off.  Brace yourselves.
