Friday morning I will take off for a ten day vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – at the same high rise on the beach where I stayed last year but in a different and much nicer condo. I’m not sure whether I will have time to do any Blog posting. I’m planning on spending a lot of time frolicking on the beach – well, more like strolling – lounging by the pool, eating too much and running around doing touristy things – and enjoying the company of too seldom seen loved ones.
I’m looking forward to retaking photos of things. The photos I took last year were the only ones I have ever put on the hard drive of my laptop: the laptop that was stolen shortly after I had returned home. The only photos that I have from the trip are the few that I had posted to my Blog which I subsequently downloaded.
Today I did some shopping for stuff to take with me on the trip. I bought new swim trunks and a few shirts and some travel size toiletries. I also bought a skirt. ———— Shame on you for thinking that! 🙄 Not THAT kind of a skirt! Geeeez! The skirt wasn’t for me. It was for my box springs!
I recently bought a new mattress and a box spring. The box spring is so much higher than my previous one that part of it was visible below the bedspread. Unfortunately, now that I have put it on I’m not all that sure that it looks any better. Maybe the answer is to get a larger bedspread.
Here are a few more photos taken recently:
Saw this during a recent walk. My first reaction was that it is meant in fun. But I’m not so sure. Florida is a big time gun state – so much so that our Governor recently denied a request from the Mayor of Tampa to allow the city to ban loaded guns at, and around, the Republican Convention this summer. Water pistols, however, can be banned.
