MANATEES & KITTY-CATS & SNAKES, OH MY!
Florida continues to be a blast. Even when the temps drop, it is fun to watch the locals panic. We actually had one night were it went down to 30 degrees and the local talking heads were making it very clear that we were all about to die. One day we went to a crafts festival on St. Augustine Beach in shorts and short sleeve shirts. Sure enough there were the locals in down jackets and ear muffs.
We spent Super Bowl weekend in Naples with Nancy's father, George. We toured Naples and enjoyed a little beach time before watching the game at Jimmie's condo. Jimmie is George's lady-friend and has a beautiful condo overlooking a pond in Naples. For us, it was a great game. Just when I thought that the Pat's were going to be defeated by another "helmet catch," a miracle occurred-YAY!

On the marital issue side of things: Nancy has now started playing her music a lot--whale music, Enya, and other sleepy favorites. Yet she denies being a fan of "The Walking Dead." Its just these types of audio delights that are driving me to the local tiki bars.
