parent: Where Are You?

Re: Where Are You? by tommie on 1999-10-17 01:17:30

Daphne, Alabama... on the Gulf Coast. Although I am currently on vacation and am having what may prove to be a rare chance to get on line. I spent 10 hours on my bike yesterday (some breaks, of course) to get to where I am now... High Springs Florida. It took so long because we went along the Gulf coast roads the entire way. Some resort areas but mostly small, off the beaten path places... eg, small fishing towns like Apilachicola (sp). Incredible... you can buy an acre of land there, on the water, for 50K. Weather permitting we will go boating on the Suanee river today. Then tomorrow, off to Tampa/St. Petersburg (the later is the home of the Dali museum,hope to make it.)

  Back from a day on the Suwanee. Better than I hoped. Forgive the spelling and grammar. Little time on line; so much to do! Off for other lands!

  Hello, hello. Access again at last. After spending so much time at the tatto parlor, well... as they say... "when in Rome". It's absolutely beautiful! The design was drawn by my son... lotsa color. On to Daytona we went last Thursday... couple of hundred thousand bikers. It's something one cannot describe. Sure makes a freak show look tame. With my leathers, shaved head, goatee (temporary) and exposed tatoo I was able to move about undetected. Sunday we went to St. Augustine. The fountain of youth does not work. Monday was Savanah. This afternoon we drove to Athens, GA. More news to follow, as you sit at the edges of your seats awaiting. byebye (No time to proofread or chekc speeling.)

  Tommie, you know I love you so you will not mind that I laughed out loud to read, in the same sentence where you describe your florid new tattoo, your assurance that the goatee is only temporary.
Sounds like fun, O bearded one.

  I am so pleased that you did laugh, Amelia, as I enjoy having seemingly paradoxical values. Because of my degree of exposure to deci$ion making customers, my goatee is not "acceptable"... my tattoo is not visible to them. My head has been shaved for about three years since my daughter gave me a buzz cut and told me I looked 10 years younger (I am 48) and I told her to cut the rest of it off. I did think of you during the trip, when we spent a few hours on Amelia Island. It is a beautiful place. There was so much "Amelia this" and "Amelia that"... it was MY turn to laugh when I passes a condo complex called "Atlantis on Amelia". Forgive my visualization... I'm only human. Bye now!

  Home again. We spent yesterday at Cheaha "Mountain", the highest point in Alabama... At a whopping 2405 feet, it is envied by our Florida neighbors whose best elevation is 345. It was a beautiful place, as the leaves were changing. Ohboy, I still have the weekend before hitting the workplace. Man, the "Loose Lips" activity has sure dwindled!

  Dwindled? Yes, I suppose it has, but that is mostly a good thing, considering. Except for the lack of news from Allyson and Brock. I hope that means they are off on some romantic adventure that has them way to busy to think about us. But a postcard would be nice, kids. Have a thought for the old folks now and then.
And my entries may have been fewer, but some were pretty, ah,
