Happy Birthday, Carolyn!
She is a lovely and most gracious southern woman, lots of fun, she has 2 beers lunches, her favourite. And she is one funny lady! And yes, I love her.
Bobby and I flew down to their home last Spring, spent a couple/three days, and get this, they have a grapefruit orchard on their front lawn, seriously, and it's beautiful. Their grapefruit is the very best I have ever eaten....that sweet red kind.
They took us down into Mexico while we were there, one of the day-trips...they also took us out on a dolphin watch, amazing. Yes, we got to see real live wild dolphins swimming around, they'd come up to the boat and check us out, look us over, it was absolutely amazing.
We ate good food, drank good liquor, walked in sand, watched for alligators,(yes, from their back yard), I did some knitting while I was there, (surprised?). I'm telling you, a good time was had by all!
I don't get to see Carolyn nearly enough, oh sure, Bob gets to town more often, but Carolyn? not enough. She should be here next month sometime and I'm hoping we'll all be able to get together, do some of that eating and drinking and laughing stuff that we seem to do so well.
I've got some photos from that trip, I'll check that folder and see if I can find a couple to show, she'll probably want to whap me a good one (just please mind the divot, thank you) but she won't...whap me that is, she WILL probably want to.
I did find the photos, let's see how they do.
(did I mention how pretty she is?) we're out on the dolphin watch, very windy day, the pooch belonged to the nice lady who took us out on the water. Really nice dog.
See the dolphin?
This is Bobby and I, we stopped off for yet more 'refreshments' and to walk some beach.
Yep, the alligator I told you about, photo taken from their backyard. Seriously.
Some fun and games......what birthday would be complete without some fun and games?
Also, putting the dancing kites in here, just in case Carolyn missed them a few posts ago.
I'm a Porsche 911!

What Kind of Knitter Are You?
You appear to be a Knitting Purist. You are an accomplished knitter producing beautiful pieces with a classic feel. You sometimes lament losing half of your local yarn shop to garish novelty yarns. Perhaps you consider fun fur scarves the bane of knitting society and prefer to steer new knitters towards the wool and cotton blends. Some might call you a bit of an elitist but you know that you've been doing this craft long enough to respect the history behind it and honor it with beautiful piece that can last a lifetime. http://marniemaclean.com
