Vacation Bests

Best Tacky Joke

Sitting on the deck one evening we noticed 10-12 turkey buzzards circling overhead ... directly overhead. It was eerie.

 Then, Joe turns to Papa (who is 85) and asks, "Are you feeling okay, Dad?"

I mean really.

But it was funny. Even Papa laughed.

Best weather ... ever.

Low humidity, balmy, breezy, and no rain (which was miraculous considering back home in Augusta it has been raining almost every day since summer began). The beautiful weather meant no mosquitoes/gnats (we sat outside until late without bug spray) and, most importantly, it meant that I had (mostly) a good hair week. Don't misunderstand -- I did have boat hair -- but the rest of the time my hair (somewhat) behaved. I even wore it down on occasion. Whoa.

My new logo ... compliments of my sister-in-law.

Best View

We stood here ...

and viewed this.

He also caught an eel.

Best Souvenir

On one of our boating excursions we dropped anchor to do some swimming. Our little guy swims to shore, finds this stump, rolls it in the water and floats it to the boat (a mighty feat considering the thing is bulky and weighs 10-15 pounds). He is determined to bring it home. And now that it's here, I am thinking it will look great on our brick patio with a terracotta pot of red geraniums sitting on top.

Sono contenta che hai passato delle belle vacanze, sono contenta che ti sei divertita, sono contenta per i tuoi capelli, ma sono soprattutto contenta del bellissimo souvenir che hai portato a casa (per fortuna non dovevate prendere l'aereo).
Bravo Timothy...bell'idea!!!
