Fleeing



Our internet connection collapsed, the squirrel limb was felled (by the neighbors) and the first winter weather lurked on the western horizon. Each of us had just battled personal assaults on our aging bodies. What to do? Other than illegal drugs, a bit of sunshine sounded good. It was nip and tuck - would our creaky groaning selves permit the transit into light? Better to languish in Florida than sleety Ohio. I crawled out of bed this morning and saw this apparition of moon, ocean and palm trees. A bit later, the sun glinting on the water. Don't pinch me. Let me dream.

What beautiful photos, Cathy. I am so glad you were able to escape the dreariness of winter! It looks like you are having a wonderful time. Keep posting those beautiful pictures for those of us who are still "wintering". Thanks too, for the sweet comment on my blog, you made my day.

Much better than my dream, the highlight being me saying, "I'm sorry but I'm a 100% hetero."

Just to show how twisted I am, here in central PA, where it has felt like Florida most of the winter, I would take the sleet and say--hurray, winter has finally arrived! But, enjoy your warmth!

Laurie - I hope your belated Christmas visit brought sunshine into your winter. It's so generous of you to wish this escapee well.

AC - You are a hoot! I've been dreaming a lot down here and frankly am glad I don't remember most of it.

Kgmom - You're not twisted. We were all a little 'weirded-out' by the unseasonable temperatures. I think you've got a bit of a nip in the air tonight, though. Time to dig out the long underwear. (I brought mine to Florida as my husband likes to sleep very very cold. Honest :0)
