Ah I missed one o' me favorite holidays!

A belated St Patricks day greetin' to everyone!

Since heading north was not going to happen I decided to head south to Florida, since as everyone knows it is the place to go on "Spring Break" So early Saturday morning I departed for palm trees and warm sand for a few days. That is the reason the blog was pretty much silent. I mean, why get on the computer when you can be on the beach!!

Ok well actually I was not going on vacation, I was working with my dad and we never quite made it to Florida, stopping about 30 minutes away in Georgia. Rather than have crowds of people around me on a warm beach I had clouds of nasty little gnat type flying insects. These of course decided I, as well as everyone else on the job were perfect candidates for the menu special of the week, Bonhumancarni - 10 magic cookie points if you figure out what that means. :p

I am not kidding about the bugs, there literally were these grayish clouds floating around people's heads. I look almost like I have chicken pox on my neck, arms and hands. Next to the hot weather in the south, which I have discussed numerous times, I dislike the bugs. The amount of bugs actually has something to do with the weather never getting all that cold enough to kill the suckers but I like to look at them as two separate irritants....And yes I know about bug spray, it never seems to really help me all that much, I guess you can say the juice is worth the squeeze, or maybe it should be, the blood is worth the bite, for bugs when it comes to me. Anyway, except for the little flying demons the trip was good, and I have some pretty funny stories which I would post but they are of the type that unless you have been on a job they probably would make no sense so I will just post some pictures, since everyone knows a picture can tell a thousand words..... oh and that is not me on the swing :p

    Before you show images that make a certain photographer look rather foolish, you should at least allow the images derived form said silliness to be show. So I will get them in their appropriate form by weeks end to show a balanced view.

    Would that be "good human flesh" ?
    Sounds like a fishing trip our family took. The guys were OK in the middle of the lake in a boat, (What are you whinning about? There aren't any bugs here!) but the rest of us on shore were eaten alive.:)
    The photo's are excelent! I want to visit the last one :)

    I wonder if bug repellent works for some people? I figure it must, or they wouldn't keep making it...or maybe some people enjoy putting on sticky, smelly bug spray even if it doesn't work! It does do a good job of sticking the mosquitoes to you when you swat them...if that's what you're going for. :p

    It doesn't look foolish, Kodachrome, that swing looks like a lot of fun! :)

    As a side note, when I see "kodachrome", I always think of the Paul Simon song of the same name. *goes off humming*

    *goes off humming* Well it probably was a song your folks and I, as well as young Uncle Jim grew up not just humming but living in the time it first came out. And I ended up just like the song- I got a Nikon Camera- and still shoot with it.

    So what's up with the car? It looks like everyone is inspecting a very large bug on the grill or something.

    Haha no, they were trying to clean it off a bit, we had been driving on a dirt trail through the woods
