Goofy-Riding-A-BikeTwo young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.

The pharmacist at the counter asked the older boy, “Son, how old are you?’

‘Eight’, the boy replied.

The man continued, ‘Do you know what these are used for?’

The boy replied, ‘Not exactly, but they aren’t for me. They’re for him. He’s my brother. He’s four.”

Swimming“Oh, really?” the pharmacist replied with a grin.  “How’s that?”

“We saw on TV that if you buy these you can swim, play tennis and ride a bike. Right now, he can’t do none of those things.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

This video landed in my mailbox last week and made me laugh out loud.

If we are to believe Jackie Jordan . . . Coral Reef is a true Renaissance Color!

It’s vibrant, uplifting, buoyant, spirited, and joyful . . . with botanical notes . . . and a vintage spirit . . . “something we are truly craving today.”

I don’t know about you, but I don’t need someone else telling me what color to paint my living room.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Betty-BoopA guy took his girlfriend to the Super Bowl in Arizona.  They had great seats right behind the Seahawk’s bench.

After the game, he asked her how she liked it.

“Oh, I really liked it,” she replied, “especially all the big muscles, but I don’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it, and for the rest of the game they kept screaming, Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!  Helloooooo? It’s only 25 cents!”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Last weekend, we went to Busch Gardens in Tampa to enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas Town.

First stop, Stanleyville Station to ride the Christmas Express.  After boarding, it started to rain. At the conductor’s request, we debarked and huddled together in the station to watch rain drops plopping in puddles for 15 minutes until the conductor asked us to retrace our steps:

“A~L~L    A~B~O~A~R~D!”

2014-12-06 16-32-12_0009

The rain slowed long enough for us to pull out of the station, seated on soggy rainswept seats.

2014-12-06 16-54-45_0012

We took the tracks less traveled . . . and saw behind the scenes hardware.

2014-12-06 17-16-25_0014

As we passed Nairobi, the rains came . . . offering passengers a soggy safari.

2014-12-06 17-17-40_0015

Can you hear My Fair Lady?   “The rain on the plain stays mainly on the train.”

Giraffes craned long necks in our direction.

2014-12-06 17-17-46_0016

They stood high, but not dry, under tall palms.

2014-12-06 17-17-52_0017

I heard them chuckling at prisoners huddled in puddles on the Candy Cane Express.

2014-12-06 17-17-57_0018

After de-boarding, we decided to dry off inside.  We opted to see a show ~ Opening Night Critters ~ featuring rescue dogs, cats, birds, plus a plucky pony, a shy skunk, and a prickly porcupine.

2014-12-06 18-03-09_0019

After the show, we saw other animals ~ elephants, Cape Buffalo, orangutans, and tigers.

2014-12-06 16-11-50_0003

And a kangaroo stationed outside of Walkabout Way.

2014-12-06 16-12-57_0004

Flocks of flamingos paraded around the grounds.

2014-12-06 16-15-54_0006

All decked out in their Christmas finery.

2014-12-06 16-16-02_0007

Amid beautiful floral arrangements.

2014-12-06 16-16-51_0008

We saw fields of poinsettias blanketing a zebra-drawn sleigh.

2014-12-06 19-11-08_0021

Inside the market place, we spied zebras, elephants, and giraffes for sale.

2014-12-06 20-19-21_0025

Ready to be adopted by collectors of all ages.

2014-12-06 20-19-32_0026

Before leaving, we walked through Christmas Village to watch wee ones enjoying a pint sized train.

2014-12-06 20-43-33_0027

As it circled round and round model trains completing smaller loops.

2014-12-06 20-43-54_0028

The trains defied all attempts to capture an unblurred image.  The trees stood silent and still, awash in bright lights while displaying a spirit of cooperation.

2014-12-06 20-44-03_0029

Throughout the park, Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes offered scents of the season.

2014-12-06 20-11-46_0023

This one stood in a pool of white poinsettia.

2014-12-06 20-12-01_0024

And presiding over it all . . . the Big Man himself.

2014-12-06 16-09-13_0001

Urging visitors to “Bring Home The Coke.”  HO~HO~HO!

2014-12-06 16-09-33_0002

Aah . . . that’s better!

Every year when I unpack Christmas decorations, Tigger appears.

2014-11-29 12-16-00_0026

He likes to take time to smell the roses . . . and poinsettias.

2014-11-29 12-16-07_0003

Before pondering the best placement for Santa and Lulu.

2014-11-29 12-16-17_0027

But he’s never too busy to play hide-and-seek-wrestle with BFF.

2014-11-27 10-30-52_0017

Once BFF finds him, the gloves are off . . .

2014-11-27 10-31-10_0018

“My what big paws you have . . . ”

2014-11-27 10-31-21_0019

“Enough of this!  I need a nap.”

2014-11-27 10-31-35_0020

“What?  I didn’t run away.”

2014-11-20 16-17-20_0002

“Do I LOOK like a quitter?”

2014-11-20 16-17-27_0003

“I’m just getting my second wind.”

2014-11-20 16-17-38_0004

“I’ll wrestle again later.  Tuesday at the latest.”

2014-11-20 16-17-46_0005

Aah . . . that’s better!

Woodstock-&-SnoopyA car mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a car when he spotted a well-known cardiologist waiting for the service manager.

The mechanic shouted across the garage, “Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?”

The cardiologist walked over to where the mechanic was working.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag, and said, “So, Doc, look at this engine. I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in.  When I finished, it worked just like new. So how is it that I make $30,000 a year and you make $800,000 when you and I are doing basically the same work?”

Woodstock-&-Snoopy3The cardiologist smiled at the mechanic before saying, “Try doing it with the engine running.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

200px-March-hareLord, as you know
We’ve been trying of late
To stick to our diets
To lose some weight

On this day of Thanksgiving
Please turn a blind eye
As we inhale stuffing
And two slices of pie

We promise if you
Will look the other way
We’ll resume our diets
On Black Friday!

Aah . . . men!

For those of you in the States, may your Thanksgiving be full of grace.
Eat, drink, and be merry . . . for tomorrow we die-t!

Gobble.  Gobble.

On Saturday, we went to a Vintage Fair and Arts & Crafts Show at Seabreeze Park on Terra Ceia Island.

2014-11-22 12-25-15_0011

Once there, we wandered the boardwalk to check out Terra Ceia Bay.

2014-11-22 12-23-25_0005

The bay strained at its shoreline as it chopped and rolled under a stiff sea breeze.

2014-11-22 12-24-07_0008

We turned to retrace our steps and spied something ahead to our right.

2014-11-22 12-24-21_0009

Natives!  Hanging out in the mangroves.

2014-11-22 12-24-53_0010

Our favorite arts & crafts item ~>  this LOVE ladder we saw at Two Little Sheep.

A few days ago, we went to Mixon Fruit Farms and Groveside Market for “A Taste of Mixon.”  Guests traveled from station to station sampling Pizza, Fudge, Honey, Oranges, Orange Juice, Cheese, Key Lime Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, Peach Chardonnay (and other wine varietals).

2014-11-15 12-08-32_0014

After eating our fill, and turning in our passports, we went outside for a wander through the Citrus Groves.

2014-11-15 12-08-04_0013

The lush landscaping looked great under blue blue skies.

2014-11-15 13-20-32_0015

Benches invited wanderers to meander awhile.

2014-11-15 13-20-42_0016

But the fish whispered . . . “Feed Me!”

2014-11-15 13-21-34_0017

We complied.

2014-11-15 13-22-07_0019

A mural (commissioned by koi) encourages visitors to feed the fish.

2014-11-15 13-39-19_0033

How could anyone resist those friendly fins?

2014-11-15 13-39-39_0035

Back on track, we continued our trek.

2014-11-15 13-30-37_0029

And stumbled across a turquoise maze.

2014-11-15 13-30-42_0030

Which invited us in.

2014-11-15 13-31-03_0031

And in and in and in . . . the way mazes do.

2014-11-15 13-31-13_0032

We got out.

2014-10-23 13-15-30_0004a

Aah . . . that’s better!
