Vacation Time

We spent the last week on VACATION - St. Simons and Savannah GA - hot but relaxing.
In Savannah "H" found what had to be the steepest staircase on the face of the earth.
Moss covered trees line Bay street.
Our hotel was just around the corner from "Paula Deens" place. Getting to eat a meal here is an almost full time job. They begin a Priority Seating System at 9:30am each morning. Not a reservation but a time to show up again for a meal. We decided to eat at "Moon River Brewing Company" instead no line, air conditioning and Russian Imperial Porter beer.
It seems like every vacation we end some place with a pier and at no time during these many years of walking on vacation piers have I ever seen anyone ever catch a damn fish.
We rented bikes on St. Simon's one afternoon and during our ride we came across where apparently the power lines had grown through a tree. Being in South what do Southeners do but cut the tree away from the wires and leave the little nubs still attached to the wire.
St Simon's lighthouse
And more moss......

What The ...? DMV Offers License Plate Fix Free Replacement Offered For 'WTF' Tags

Thanks to some text message-savvy grandchildren, North Carolina drivers whose license plates have the potentially offensive "WTF" letter combination can replace the tags for free. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday the state Division of Motor Vehicles has notified nearly 10,000 holders of license plates with the letter combination. Officials learned last year the common acronym stands for a vulgar phrase in e-mail and cell phone text messages. The DMV recently realized the same letters appeared on the sample license plate on its own Web site. Officials are trying to remove the plate from the site. "I can't believe it," DMV Commissioner Bill Gore told the newspaper on Monday when alerted to the situation. "Obviously, I didn't
know it was there." DMV officials got word of the plates last July when a 60-year-old technology teacher from Fayetteville complained about the plate after her teenage grandchildren clued her in. "LINK"

First of all who doesn't want a WTF plate, I do.. I do... Officials just learned last year that WTF could be offensive, where have these folks been hiding? Just think if we get government healthcare these government DMV workers just might just be doing your next medical exam, I'm just saying......

Happy Birthday Goose

Goose turned 18 this week, it's gone by quick. The remaining "Salamander Sister" broke in applied some urban art to her sled and kidnapped her for an early morning breakfast at iHop.

Picture Of The Week

Click The Picture For Biggie Size

I have worked with "EM" for close to 16 years and he's probably one of the funniest people I've ever met. On his recent trip to Arizona he snapped this picture for me. Only "EM" being 1000+ miles away from home could find this house in the middle of Arizona.
What this picture tells me is that there's a half dozen women running around Arizona without a bra on.

Treadmill Fun

Treadmills are notoriously evil. There have been times when using one at a hotel I'll be cruising along and all of a sudden the belt will hesitate just long enough to slam L4 into L5 and leave me limping.
