Back from Florida
Jesse and I took a very short trip down to finish up some business. We left Sunday and returned Tues. We were so fortunate to get out before all the flights were canceled due to TS Fay. Lots of people were stranded in Florida or trying to get into Florida. Those storms are scary....the tornadoes that they spawn are the worse nightmare, not to mention the flooding and even the high winds. During Hurricane Charley in 2004, the palm trees in our front yard were literally flat on the ground during the intense winds...then they popped back up. Anyway, we didn't have much time but saw a few old haunts. We didn't get to see friends due to appts we had and the extreme lack of time. We did drive past Jesse's old buildings and eat at Cecil's barbeque for old times sake. He has the best beef brisket! I am so glad to be home!!!
