Only another two weeks and we’ll be making our way back to Canada. Back to a new home in Kingston. Friends – please make sure the weather gets warmer, VERY quickly!
We’ve been busy. Pool parties, golf, (yes, with the alligators)
However, Russ has had an epiphany, and has discovered a new meaning to being alive. He now enjoys the rustic life of the angler.
Just look at his concentration. The pose. The determined look of he who knows he can do it (with a $25.00 fishing rod from Walmart).This is what Otis Redding sang about in his song: “Fishing on the dock of the bay“….
So far he has not caught anything, and there has not even been a nibble on his bait. That’s obviously because it’s a cheap fishing rod.
We’ve also visited a gun store. They were most accommodating and let me take photos. I guess that’s because the owner of the store is a former Lutheran priest who found another calling (!), and was being kind. Here’s the man, trying out for the title role in a remake of The Sopranos.
We’ve also been to a fun St. Patrick’s day party at Judy and George’s home. We call them The Jettson’s, for obvious reasons. Here is Sam (our favourite entertainer), with his go-go girls and groupies. Apologies for the grainy photos of the party.
And these are my two favourite leprechauns, Sam and Russ, having a blast with Sheila. They were singing along to something on the TV (“Stop – in the name of love“, I believe). Out of respect for the title of this blog, “Russ goes Floridian”, his T-shirt says “0% Irish“.
Oh – if you’d like a good laugh – watch the video I took of them! https://www.dropbox.com/s/7rbezv4i6y7jcui/20140317_185154.mp4.
That’s all for now folks. Enjoy your day!
