Its been a while, yeah? Sorry, I kind of dropped off for a while.

I don’t even remember how long ago…

I’m pulling out my widow card on this one. See? It’s my excuse. Gets me out of many things these days, especially social stuff.

I went and saw the Grandbaby…he’s still an infant and cute as can be. honestly I am looking forward to the 3-9 month stage. That’s when they start getting interesting. Right now he’s adorably cute in that cuddly baby doll sort of way.

Then I took Mom to Sanibel Island way down in South Florida. Theoretically it is an 8 hour drive. Reality is, due to her intense adversity to interstate highways and speeds over 55, it’s more like a 12 hour drive.  The island is nice though. It’s the wrong time of year for the interesting seashells but we got a ton of Calicos, those sort of scallops that are small and all colored purple stripes and stuff. Pretty things.

We ate an amazing meal served by a handsome French waiter named Jean-Claude…fresh caught grouper and scallops, blackened and served on a bed of dirty rice with fresh steam haricots vert…mmmmm

But now, I am exhausted. All that driving…the beach was nice tho. I got some great pictures and was protected one afternoon by a tiny superhero.

    I love Sanibel, it feels like it’s a step away from everything. I remember the first time I took my sons, they could not believe that there was no McDonald’s on the Island, just a Dairy Queen.

    We also love the antique store there, always a must see.

    I’m so glad you got away, the beach is always so restorative.

    So, basically jealous about the Sanibel thing, and jealous about the Grandbaby thing.

      Oh the antique store was fabulous! Like a museum of popular culture! Also the food…and the people were so friendly…and all the flowers…and the beach…and Oh…the houses on Captiva Island! Woah!

    So nice of you to do that for your Mom. Wish I had a kid who’d like to take me to Sanibel AND Captiva. I love those places.
