is he not just the cutest thing?
i doubt he’d like to be described that way.
but when i saw him standing there
i just fell in love.
for several reasons actually.
he comes to us by way of my captain.
of manatee fritters.
you can find him in the side bar.
he’s my hero on many levels
and if you read the peanut you know that already.
the captain is also a designer of business websites and apps.
the bobby b is under construction
but it is up and running still
and i visited it and
i want to go to the keys.
IS the KEYS!
bobby has been there for 40 years.
he knows it like the back of his hand.
i think my trip would be safe with him.
i would see what i want
and do what i want
and apparently not have to spend
the fortune that i don’t have! LOL!
i have never been to the keys even once.
i am thinking i am wayyyy overdue for a visit.
i adore the music of jimmy buffet.
i wouldn’t exactly say i’m a ‘parrot head’
but i dare you to listen to jimmy
and not move your feet
and your hips
and put a big grin on your sad face ! ! ! LOL.
you just have to!
the man is the voice of the keys.
and i have the pictures to prove it!
just take a look . . .
but first . . .
they just look like they ooze health and happiness.
i mean jimmy and bobby.
well. you’d be disappointed if i didn’t.
here’s what i would go for . . .
they say you can here the ssssttt sound
when the sun hits the water
fair makes you catch your breath doesn’t it?
and i would go for this ! ! !
this is FLIPPER or his cousins
and they are PLAYING!
in the wake that . . .
wait for it . . .
‘the glass bottomed boat’ is making ! ! !
don’t you love it!
do you remember that movie old bean?
yes. it was a little silly.
but it was happy. and it had doris singing in it.
and it had rod taylor to feast your eyes upon.
and even old arthur godfrey as the captain
of the glass bottomed boat.
and a glass bottomed boat is on the bobby b website!
he can make arrangements for you.
it would be SO much FUN!
yup. she was a mermaid alright. til she lost her tail.
then i might be persuaded to get into a kayak and see the sunset
and the moon rise ! ! !
if you can even believe THIS . . .
the full moon light on the water of the keys
amazing! how light it is. i think it would feel surreal.
maybe i would let bobby b charter me a boat.
well. it COULD happen!
OH GOOD GRIEF CHARLIE BROWN!
that crystal water again.
i’m there old bean.
are you getting bored? i’m not.
and NO. i’m not working for the chamber of commerce. HAHAHA.
come to think of it . . . i might just send them a bill though.
i haven’t even mentioned the food.
but when i go i’m going to have my
key lime pie.
a pie named after paradise! just think!
just been dreamin’ a bit here. but hey.
i don’t know why i thought i had to go all the way
to the bahamas for pete’s sake.
when i had this beauty right at my doorstep
so to speak.
that’s the thing with human nature.
we always think it’s got to be better . . .
WAAAAAYYYYY over there.
just ask bobby b
and jimmy b
and the captain!
and now old bean . . .
here’s some last pictures to make your day
that’s okie for prettier.
and DON’T be sending me any cards or letters.
i can speak okie when i want. cuz i am one.
though prettier is a much better adjective
for these unbelievably beautiful shots of the
brought to you from juliesbirds.com
and let’s see . . .
i would HAVE to see earnest hemingway’s house and the kitties
and the Truman little white house
and . . . walk around and see the beautiful historic ‘cottages’
and . . . and . . . have a margarita and
well . . . just probably chill out.
he said i could.
til soon old bean!
