Story Challenge: B! = Buffet’s Margaritaville

One of the places we visited for lunch on our vacation.

We weren’t actually that impressed with the place.  The food was terribly overpriced and wasn’t very good.  It wasn’t horrible.  It just wasn’t worth the price.  Plus, it was incredibly crowded.  The waitresses kept running into Hallie’s chair, so she moved to another chair.  Pretty cute from the outside, though.  Plus, they had a cute shop to buy souveniers while you wait to be seated, which they said would be about 45 minutes.  It was closer to maybe 20 or 30, I think.  I bought a postcard.  ;)  Spent more at Ron Jon’s Surf Shop.

Y’all have an amazing Saturday, k?  It’s very dark and stormy looking here at 9:30 a.m.  We must be crazy venturing out in a potential incoming storm.  I’m sure we’ll have a good time, anyway.  Gonna go get some bbq for lunch, check out an art gallery, a vintage shop, get groceries, and just look around and see what other trouble we can get into.  ;)  Mostly looking today.  Not buying.

Love y’all!  *squishy hug*

Panama City Beach, Florida (July 2012)

Story Challenge: Letter “A”

All Aboard!!!

Many of you know that my family and I went on vacation to Panama City Beach last week. On Sunday, we took a cruise on Capt. Anderson III, one in the morning and another that evening. This was just part of the colorful, entertaining scenery. Pigs were flying, seagulls were posing (which I’ll show another day), dolphins were playing and we were enjoying the view. Won’t you enjoy it with us?  Wait a minute…  Pigs were flying?

Well, perhaps pigs weren’t actually flying…(thought the boat name was cute)

Folks were fishing…

Bikers were biking…

Seagulls were skimming…

Boats were boating, as we were, and seagulls were begging for cheetos…

Next time, I want to try this…

Sailboats were sailing…

And more to follow on another story…

Hope y’all are enjoying your week, thus far.  Mine has been pretty good.  Day 2 of my juice and water fast!  I’m doing good!  I honestly thought I’d cave and eat something.  A cracker.  Something.  But I did not weaken.  Let’s see if I can finish it out today and most of tomorrow till supper.  Then, it’ll be over, at least for this week.  ;)

*smooch*

Day 159 of my Project 366.

A-Z Archive: T! Challenge

I know I’m late.  Story of my life ever since I was born 3 weeks late.  Been late ever since.  Oh well.  Here it is anyway.  My entry for the “T” theme:

Tantrum!

Hallie was holding Sammy, but now she has Carlie. As you can see, Sammy isn’t too happy about it.

When he was around, he was very sweet (most of the time), but also very spoiled and when you love on him, no one else should exist. He was growling, “Put her down this instant! It’s ME time!”

Yeah, ole Sammy moved away a couple o’ years ago. I did some painting on the interior of the house and remodeling of floors and such and he hasn’t cared for us since. Some cats adapt to change well, while others will not tolerate any sort of change.

He does come by to pay us a visit every few months, though. Funny thing. He just comes by for about 5 minutes, let’s us give him the once over and he’s gone again. Weird, right? I’m sure someone is taking really good care of him, because he’s nice and plump. ;) Sweet that he doesn’t want us to worry.

Hope y’all have had an amazingly beautiful day!  I enjoyed watching the rain fall sideways.  It was sooo windy!  Now that it’s almost time to leave work (yes, I’m caught up for the moment), the rain stopped, not like yesterday.  Torrential downpour as I was leaving, I got soaked, seeing as I left my umbrella in the car (right?!), and once I got in the car, pea-sized hail started slamming down.  Skeeered meee to deaf (as Hallie used to say).   :)   Aw, I miss those days when she said the cutest things like that.  She still says some pretty cute things, though.  Y’all have a great night, k?  *hug*

Oh, and if you need more cute Hallie-isms:  “I think I’m going death.  I can’t hewe a thing.”

“One, two, flea, fowa, pive, six, seben, eight, nine, teein.”  Oh and when she’d count the teens, she’d always skip sixteen.  She really didn’t like that number.

“Mama, I wanna particerate in that.”

“Ok, I juss don’t undewstand.  You need to be mowa pacific.”  tehe!

And my personal favowite:  “I pwedge awegiance to da fwag, of de United States of Amewica.  And to de pubwic, fowa undewstands, one nation undew God, invisible, and dis is fowa awe.”  When I figure out how to apply an audio to my blog, I’ll let you listen.  I have her on tape.

I love that baby so much it hurts!
