Phlorida Phenomenon

Hon, we’re not in Massachusetts anymore:

-         There’s a remarkable availability of wine and beer – now I can stop by CVS for face cream, Neosporin, and Merlot.
-         With day after day of 75 degrees, it’s tricky remembering what month we’re in, but we can always tell it’s Sunday by the number of stores with their doors locked up tight.
-         I’m finding empty shelves that should have been filled with boxes of my shade of hair color (L'Oreal's Excellence Golden Blonde). Apparently, store inventories are challenged in this land of perpetually blond women.
-         Instead of the sweet elixir from our well at home, I’m buying bottled water and making heavy use of our Brita water pitcher. How can a state so inundated with water have such bad tasting H2O?
-         The preponderance of little white dogs – under patio tables at restaurants, trotting on leashes at Home Depot and Home Goods, riding in bike baskets, and pushed in dog strollers down city sidewalks.
-         On the plus side, there’s no end of dining opportunities:

Trial Run

     My morning was spent running errands, to include a trip to the pet food place to replenish our dog food and treat supply.

Tuesday travels

Walking, Talking and Art

Some people use their blogs as daily diaries, and so I thought I’d give that a try and cover today’s events, not that anything of any great import occurred.

Florida, flab, and fish

We’re slowly trying to build a routine here, activities for day-to-day in between sightseeing and getting to know the area.
