Everything went smoothly: getting up, packing, loading the car, checking out, breakfast at the Floridian on Las Olas, fill up with gas, disassemble and pack Golda’s travel cage, rental return, airline check-in, TSA screening (No private room this time. They just […]

Fort Lauderdale

After a monotonous drive along Alligator Alley (We still have not seen a single alligator in Florida.) we arrived in Fort Lauderdale. We found a nice little place called Cocobelle Resort about two blocks from the beach. It was a lovely, warm, sunny afternoon, and we walked along the oceanfront strip, looking for souveniers. Late […]

Good morning! Today, Saturday, we are in the Quality Inn in Cape Coral, Florida. We drove all day yesterday from Homosassa, arriving at Sanibel Island after dark, and there was no rom in the inn for us there. Everything was booked up, or didn’t take Golda (not “pet friendly”) or wanted about three hundred dollars […]

Christmas Eve

December 26th, 2007 · No Comments

I was still pretty much under the weather for the Saturday and Sunday after the party. On Saturday we drove my Mom down to St. Augustine, and stopped for lunch at Cap’s by the Water on the way back. I’ve only got two things to say about that: 1) It was cold and raining, and […]

Last night we had a few people over for dinner. Olga picked up my mom and brought her out to the beach house. The first guest to arrive was my old friend from high school, Pete Lewis, who had driven all the way from Tallahassee on his motorcycle. Pete and I hadn’t seen each other […]

A visit from Mom.

December 20th, 2007 · No Comments

Today Olga picked up my mom at the old folks home (assisted living center) and brought her out here to the beach to see me, her sick son. We figured that was better than us going over there and infecting a bunch of her neighbors and friends. Of course mom was as charmed by Golda […]

A visit from Oscar

December 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Today Oscar drove out here to the beach to visit me. Of course, I was fried, by which I mean tired and achey and feverish and all of that. He brought his dog, Annabell. He also brought a picture of his new girlfriend, Mary Lea. It seems that they found each other a couple of […]

Arghh!

December 19th, 2007 · No Comments

My brain hurts while I am doing this. It started as a sore throat on Sunday. Monday, I knew that I was sick, but kept thinking to myself, “just get on the plane. All you have to do is get on the plane.” Tuesday, yesterday, was one of the worst plane rides of my life. […]

December 17th, 2007 · No Comments

Here we are the, almost the entire family, rushing to get our Christmas cards finished. Golda is on the table, trying to help as best she can with no arms; and Dinkel is observing from the Armoire. On the right side you can even see our tiny twinkling Christmas tree.  Only the parakeets and I […]
