Hi Kids Back in a jumping jack flash. Thanks for the info on Randy Wayne White, Mikie. Looked him up in Wikipedia. Hey, Julie, He's an Iowa boy; Davenport. At least for part of his childhood. Anyhoo he used to run charter boats from Sanibel Island. But when the government closed down boat traffic, he became a writer. Has written oodles of books under various names. I put one on hold. Julie, thank you for your extravagant compliment. It turned my head, and now I keep bumping into things. Gordon and I repaired the window blind. Gordon stood on his mother's old sewing machine and did the necessary repairs while I cut and passed packing tape to him. He is going over the Jim's place to get something related to orchids. Lava rocks, I think. One can use them as potting material since orchids are not planted in dirt. I have been watching NCIS. They have the most intricate plots of any show on TV. Surprise endings are common. So does that make them less surprising? Hope everydobby has a good day. Rock Bridge to Sanibel Island. I suspect the figure at the far end is Mikie.
