Siesta Key

We took our house guests down to Siesta Key today. I didn’t know it but they had a craft show going on. I bought a couple cheap baubles for Frau Grace.

We had lunch at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar:

Look at all the money hanging from the ceiling and walls…

Siesta Key has other things to look at as well.

It was a chilly day or they would have taken off their sweaters.

I’m a little behind.

I think my server has been screwing up. I lo0ok back and at least three of my posts don’t appear. Somebody commented that I reposted a strip. Today is Friday, so I’m going to post everything from this story  up to now.

 

And I’ll get to my comments tomorrow or Sunday. I’m pretty busy with my guests. I’ll also get to my email. Sorry.

Unretouched Sunset

Whoa! The reddest sky I ever saw in my long years of observational vicissitudes.

 

 

 

 

Heck, I don’t even know what vicissitude means. I find that, when arguing about something or other with someone whom I don’t particularly care for, throwing out words like vicissitude or, say, conundrum, they don’t know what it means either. But they’re usually impressed, and usually they shut up.

Just saw this

In 2010 Frau Grace and her good friend, Melba,  went to China. As a matter of fact, last November they went to Churchill on the Hudson Bay to see the polar bears. But when they were in China they paid to be able to shovel Panda poop. I just came across this photo from among about a hundred others. That’s her with a few of her friends.

Drug Prices

I just paid $120 at a CVS Pharmacy for one of my, God knows how many, prescriptions. I can get the same thing from Canada for $60. I already get, and have gotten for years my really expensive drugs from Canada. I’m thinking I’ll start getting all of them there. If you’re a U.S. citizen, forget about the government doing anything to lower prices. They’ve had plenty of time. We pay at least twice as much as any other country in the developed world for drugs. The price of insulin has gotten so high that people are dying, here in the richest country on earth. I can afford my drugs. What about poor people?

When I went to work at the University of Georgia back in 1972, I met my new next door neighbor, Dave P. As we were getting acquainted his collie peed on my leg.

Geeze,what a moustache!

I still have bad dreams about my moustache. I wake up in a cold sweat. It gets in my mouth. Sometimes the hairs get stuck between my teeth. Here’s my passport photo from when I was 33:
