This is way to close to home.
I am grateful for the good neighbors that surround me in this section.
That must be so nerve wracking!

The ducks have still been stopping by every day. My husband isn't too happy about it. I picked up a couple of tubes to throw in the pool, I still need to blow them up. I read that the ducks may not land in the pool if they see the tubes floating around. We'll see what happens.

I didn't think that I would like it, just because it was not Disney... But was I ever so wrong! Now, of course, it's not Disney, but it has so much to see and do, I just loved it. This will be our second trip there...

If the oppourtunity ever presents itself to you, I would highly recommend to go to them all and also a place there called gatorland; you would love it! Oh, and try the gator bites, taste just like chicken~

Oh man if you ever decide to go there, you wouldn't want to leave. There is soooo much to see and do there that I would highly recommend that you stay there at least 10 days because 5 days is way tooooo short, that you would end up running yourself ragged trying to do everything and then you would not be able to relax and enjoy yourself....

We are now starting to plan on a trip back to Disney for either this Christmas Holiday schedule or the next year... It will be a 5th trip there! I'm already putting the bling in the bank for that trip which I plan to stay a full 2 weeks....

"With a drink in my hand and my toes in the sand...." Well, you get the meaning....

Happy Thursday afternoon all. Temps are getting too hot here. We are looking at a high of 82 the next couple to days before it cools slightly back to upper 70s Sunday.

We are having a problem with a neighbor. A young bear has come up on our porch the last couple of nights. There is no animal control in our county and I don't want to kill it. I fired a shotgun out the window to scare it off. We are making sure the bird feeders and pet food containers are empty at night. Hopefully he will leave or I guess we will be eating bear meat. They can be dangerous when they lose their fear of people.

Have a blessed day everyone.
