Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry!

And I shall.  I always am aren't I?  Andre' will be beating me up helping me work out at 11:00 and hopefully it won't be raining after that so I can swim a bit.  And it's Friday so I know y'all love that.  Me?  Doesn't matter a twit.  All my days are lovely.  Every one of them.

So yesterday I got lucky and won a buck and a half at canasta and we had some good gal pal laughs.  There was only one other table of ladies in the card room and we were having a good time listening to this one gal drop designer names.  Like none of us ever had a label in our clothes.  It just got so funny after a bit.  Pretentious?  She has plenty.

Oh, and they put my chef salad back on the menu in the grille room!  I was so happy to see that.  One chef would make it for me even when it wasn't on the menu but the other one wouldn't so I'd always have to figure out something else to eat on canasta day.

Remember I told you a while back that the golf course behind me is gone now and a resort is going in there?  Well here is a photo taken yesterday from my terrace showing the work done so far.

What is happening here is dirt removal.  Since it was a golf course for 40 years or so dirt must be removed, between 4 and 15 inches, because of arsenic - I think because of the chemicals they used for so many years as fertilizer, anyway it has to be hauled away before construction can begin.  Oh, and the only place they can use it I understand is under highways.  New lakes are being dug as well.  It's going to be a long haul but I am enjoying watching the work.  I sit out there early in the morning with my coffee and watch.

Well wasn't I newsy today?  Some days my brain works and some days it wanders but it's always happy.  Life is just too short for it to be anything else.

Have a lovely Friday my friends.  I shall too, you can count on it!


  1. Pretentious + Plenty = Plententious. She has it. Do they have designer labels over at the Walmart? I might have missed them.

  6. West Palm isn't even recognizable to me any more. I was there three years ago for a visit, and I am glad I wasn't driving, because I didn't recognize anything!
