Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Fun Little "Bits" And Random Odds and Ends

.

You know, when you go on a trip, it really is a good thing if you remember to pack your britches. . .


Otherwise you'll have to spend part of your first morning in a store very much like this replacing what you forgot to bring.

This is totally hypothetical you understand, and offered purely as a warning to others who might not be as good at packing as I am. ;-)


Today hubby and I managed to make a 45 minute trip in about three hours. We're just talented like that!!!

Here's the scoop: there was a terrible wreck on the road we needed to take. After waiting for a LONG time, impatience took over and we decided to go another route. The "new" route was miles and miles longer and took us through miles and miles of "real" Florida (mangroves) as seen above.''

That's how hubby got to spend his "free" time out of class this afternoon.


If you went to Florida and rented a cute little car like this, you'd EXPECT the "tag" (that's southern for license plate) to be from . . .


TEXAS!?!
How did that happen?


Florida wildlife.
Is it flora or fauna?


Oh go fly a kite!!!!

Which road did you take to by-pass wreck? Did it really take 3 hours??? Barbara had just told me it took them an hour now just to go to Ft. Myers.

They have "rush HOUR" in S. Fla. & we have "rush MINUTE" in N. Fla. Ha!!!

Is that YOUR purse in that cart??

Mom, we started heading to the Naples Condo at about 1:30l, couldn't get to 41 on Collier, so turned back into Marco and went round by Goodland bridge. We were at the Naples condo for about a half hour, then headed right back and got Greg to the Marco Marriott by 5. And THAT is how long it took us.

Keri, it is a little VB backpack that was given to me for Christmas by one of my students and yes, on this trip I'm using it as a purse so I can carry a book with me on the plane etc.
