Home again...

The view- from under my umbrella...



Facts about my trip:

*The Marines laid low (but I swear I can spot one from a mile off! :)

*I used my sun-screen but forgot to put it on my ears...yep- the left one is hurting!

* Saturday it rained.
I drove down to the ocean anyway and sat in my car and read- leaving my keys in the ignition.
I forgot THAT MY HEADLIGHTS NEVER SHUT OFF when the keys are in the ingnition.
My battery died... Yet another Blonde moment- from me to you! :)

*The sky was beautiful on Sunday!!!












Do you really think I wanted to come home on Monday????


Are you CRAZY????







But it is hard to blog from the beach- and I did miss you all...and I have lots of catching up to do~ Hope to drop by tonight and get caught up with all of you :)

...and because of the rain, there were no Marines around to give you a "jump start?"

Welcome home, anyway, and I'm glad yer trip was safe.
It may be that some of this poetry has worn down....
Just came back from Perci's where I put althusius on a lathe.
Dang! I should have kept on the poet's gown!

It's just that when I rhyme, the hatred won't really flow free.
And, I like it so much better, being nice is more like being me.

But, some kind'a berate it, and, I reckon they have a point.
Like when y'hear a tune over and over sometimes makes y'want out'a the joint!

Oh well.
What the....
hey.

Don't matter much what they say
'cause y'all came back to the blogs t'play!

Hey hey hey!

which reminds me.
Indeed, I had Jean, Nea, and you picked.
At the last moment, I thought t'get m'sis in law into it....but.
How did you know?

cora, i've had brunette moments like those.....
1. I've locked my keys in the car.
2. I've dropped my keys down a drain before...a long time ago. 3. I've parked, but left the ignition on so i could still listen to the radio....dead battery an hour later...
4. yesterday, i went to pick my oldest from scouts. 1st i drove in the direction of my in-laws before i realized i was driving wrong, then i turned around and absentmindedly drove in the direction of downtown.....i had to turn around again and finally got it right.

.....and i won't even talk about rearending my hubbie at the impossibly fast speed of 5 miles an hour or less..

Boneman- :)
I loathe being at odds with someone...unless it's someone I can take a swing at! (don't you believe it!) lol!
I daresay that something very frightening will unify us- and it will be a dark terrible day. It makes me sad that we don't appreciate life until we face death.
Glad you were thinking of me on your book blog/post...I couldn't resist!
And I looked up page 123 in that "other" book- lol, it was just a picture! :P

Schaumi- LOL..."Sigh"- we go together like peanut butter and jelly! :) Thanks for the huge grin! :)

Welcome home, no worries about the blonde moment, I have them too. I ran out of gas in the middle of the drive through at the bank...DUH...that was embarrassing.

Well, Mayden, I didn't tell anyone about the key in the ignition. But since you outed yourself, I suppose we can mention it now.

It's good to have you back, although hope you enjoyed your visit.

puerileuwaite said...

Wow. Wish I was there.

Mayden's Voyage said...

K9- love it...had to blog a new post so everyone will pop over to your place :)
The pink/blue is my favorite!
