As I type this, Al is working on our schedule for the week, which I’ll post tomorrow. That’s the only day we won’t be watching baseball. Instead, we’ll be locating Ed Smith Stadium and McKechnie Field, as well as a place for us to play. Our most important task, however, will be supervising the waves at Siesta Key beach. We have to make sure thatthey reach the white sand in an efficient and timely manner.
As for today’s trip, we were quite impressed by the wide range of flowers blooming here in Florida as well as the wide range of barbecue places at which to eat. In fact, we ate at Dianne’s Old Time Barbecue for lunch and at Sonny’s Barbecue for dinner. Hey, we like barbecue.
We passed palmetto trees and trees with Spanish moss, we crossed rivers and swamps and we saw two billboards for Pro-Vas a medical practice specializing in vasectomies. According to the billboards, they have performed over 17,000 successfully. It’s kind of like McDonald’s only . . . oh, never mind. Yesterday, we passed a billboard advertising hysterectomies. I’m not making this up. You can’t.
We’re very glad that so many of you have joined us on our trip. We’ll supervise some waves for you tomorrow.
