Week 41 in Review


 

THE WEEK IN PICTURES


This is about the third cannon I've seen pointed at a church. Coincidence?


Boo. Yay.


"Oh, did he say, 'Pull away FROM the dock?'"


"When I grow up I want to be a soldier- with a gargoyle on my head."


Looks like we're way out in the woods. Right smack in the city. 


That's pretty cool. Quilter Girl loved it, of course.

What is the deal with fireworks? These were across the street from one another. Year round, really?


"Mommy, what are they doing?"
"Reading the paper."
"What's a paper?"

MUTTERINGS, MUSINGS, RANTS AND RAVES

Okay, a little Tourist Lesson here: If you're following a tour-guide in a group, when you enter a room GET IN! Don't stand in the doorway in awe. We're all waiting for you. And move in close to the tour-guide so others can get in too. And stand up straight.

Correction: I previously stated that Spanish Moss isn't Spanish and isn't moss, and that's true. It's a distant cousin to the pineapple. However it isn't a parasite, but gets nourishment from the air. I can't figure that out either. We've seen it hanging from phone wires. 

Last night the campground hosted Karaoke night, so I screwed up my courage and sang for the first time. I followed a guy that sounded just like Elvis. I sang Orleans' song, 'Still the One.' It went okay. Sat back down and shook for ten minutes! Cool to take a risk like that, though. Perfect too, as I didn't know those people.

I wish I was on the Carnival cruise ship with the fire. Extended trip, another free trip and $500. Plus bragging rights for life. "It was horrible. (Wipe away the tears) We had to eat... cold food!"

THE STUPID DRIVER OF THE WEEK

The bridge is up. The outside lane, our lane, is stopped. The inside lane turns left up ahead and is moving nicely. You pull up beside me and using gestures, asks if you could slide in front of me. Sure, there's a car length and a half. You glide in, but rather than crank it and get in, leave your big fat backside blocking the inside lane. 

The bridge is up for a long time. You could get your passenger out to guide you and jack the car back and forth to get out of the way, but you sit there and hold up the lane, probably for miles. You ma'am, are goofy, and I grant you the sash and tiara. Congratulations!

Don't forget the Church Surch, previous post. And we'll see you tomorrow as we ride to Savannah, Georgia, state 39. Finally, right? Enough Florida.

Unfortunately for our wives and friends... both of them... (you DO have a friend, right?), we share a similar senseless, um... sense of humor. :-)
