We took advantage of the gorgeous weather today to enjoy an early birthday lunch for BFF at the Beachhouse restaurant on Anna Maria Island.

I’ve written about the Beachhouse before ~ here and here and here.

Our table sat underneath the brilliant sub-tropical sun, overlooking the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico.

I ordered the Florida Cracker special . . . without the mullet ~ Fried Green Tomatoes, Cheese Grits, and Collard Greens.  One of the Top Ten Best meals I’ve had since moving here.

The Donkey in the Well October 21, 2011

Shrek-&-DonkeyOne day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.

The animal cried for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

His neighbors came to help him.

As they began to shovel dirt into the well, the donkey cried.  Then, he quieted down, causing the farmer to look into the well.

As each shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up.  In short order, he stepped over the edge of the well and trotted off.

Thought to Ponder:  Life is going to shovel dirt on us ~ that’s a given.  We either use our troubles as stepping stones to get from where we are to where  we want to be . . . or we end up “buried alive.”  It’s our choice.
