Sometimes you need to step away from the art supplies and recharge the creative battery............
hopefully it doesn't take too long to refill the well.

Punny Monday

Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

When does it stop being partly cloudy and start being partly sunny?

I Love a Surprise……..

….or not……lol.
Our city has four hundred miles of canals. We live almost at the end of our canal. And our canal is at the end of a bunch of other canals. We’re tucked away and sort of secluded from the main traffic is my point. 

We do get all sorts of stuff ‘visiting’ in the canal even though it’s tucked away and dead ends. Manatees in the winter looking for warmer water……dolphins often bring their babies to teach them how to fish by ‘herding’ the fish into the shallow corners….an occasional stingray……and coconuts!!!!! TONS of floating coconuts!!!!

And sometimes the occasional man made refuse floats in. We’ve had deck chairs float by, all sorts of fishing accoutrement, garbage cans…you know, things that blow off decks and lanais.

But this is the first COVERED cooler that we’ve seen. COVERED is the operative word here.

Husband pointed it out to me.

As we stood looking at the object we pondered its contents.  

Husband’s suggestions were much more refined than mine. Maybe some fisher-persons lunch, maybe a six pack of beer, maybe the catch of the day…….

As for me, I go right to the grisly. Maybe a severed head!!!!!

(I totally get why Husband looks at me strangely sometimes.)

You will be disappointed to read we did NOT attempt to find out its contents. Husband says on the off chance I’m right he doesn’t want to know!

PS On a similar note…..we once found a floating package in the Gulf……we thought it might be illegal drugs but it turned out to be a bag of Cheerios!

Sometimes things are better left to the imagination!

My Apologies, CJ......

....and all those living in northern climes......

Spring is springing around here...in between the FRIGID temperatures.

Don't ask me what it is....Husband often tosses odds and ends into the less 'viewed' beds just to see what will happen.......It didn't do any flowering for YEARS and now it seems to be happily blooming, enjoying the neglect. 
Whatever it is, it smells REALLY nice!

 I want to rob a bank with a BB gun. “Give me all your money or I will give you a dimple! I will be rich, you will be cute. We both win.”

New Neighbor

We have new neighbors across the canal. They are good neighbors, quiet and keep to themselves.  

Here's the interesting thing……the wife likes to sunbath…….topless……..on an over sized raft that essentially raises her out of the pool and above the privacy level of the shrubbery surrounding her lanai. 

No big deal. Her pool, her lanai, her boobs..…..go for it honey.

The part that I find hilarious is how much work the men in the surrounding houses have found to do on their boats lately! (ed. Their boats are all kept on lifts in the canal.)

Suddenly they all have ‘projects’ that need to be done. Our 85 year old neighbor is out washing his (non-functioning) boat more in the last few months than in all the previous years he’s lived here! 

Another neighbor just realized all the canvas on his boat needs mending. 

And Husband decided this was the year our boat needed buffing and waxing! This is the first time he has EVER buffed and waxed this boat since we bought it….coincidence….???

I guess I’ll never know…..lol
