Off To See The Manatees

I’m off to see the wizard again. I will be picking up the grandkids from school today and taking them to the airport to meet Sweet Tea coming in from France. Then we will leave there and head south to Fanning Springs, Florida.

F.S. is a Florida State Park that has some warm springs and is the winter home of the Manatees. I think that is a Southern League AA Baseball team or something. Anyways, there are hot springs there for swimming and nature trails to walk and, I hope, a good baseball game. I am told that you can swim with the Manatees, but I won’t impose and ask for their autographs or anything. I will try to get a few pictures, though. We’ll see!

We’ll be back home Sunday evening. Then I’m off again, on Thursday, to NJ to deliver thirty something puppies to the shelter up there. This will become a monthly or bi-monthly excursion for me. I don’t mind, but I wish I could go to a few different places. I love to see new stuff.

Don’t you think there are some people in Hawaii who would like to have a new spaded or neutered dog or puppy with a microchip that barks with a southern accent? I think there would be. But, NNOOOOO! Dr. Amber says it’s too far to drive. Doctors!!??! They think they are so smart and know everything.

Anyway, the bottom line is that I won’t be online much this week. Wait! What’s that yelling and whistling and clapping I hear? Maybe I need to go lay down for awhile. I’ll check with y’all later.

I love that new baseball team, the Manatees. Only thing I hear thru the grapevine is, they party too much and have a lousy time scoring from first on a right field corner shot.

I've heard that they are pretty slow and laid back, too. They are more interested in socializing than playing ball.

That park sounds very interesting. I look forward to seeing the pictures.

Be careful out there.

RWA, I'm looking forward to it, too. But the weather calls for rain, so...

Mr. Lemon, I don't think we are going that far south. It’s on the Gulf side somewhere around the arm pit - above Tampa. I say 'arm pit', but if you look at the whole State of Florida, it doesn't look like an arm pit, does it?

Oh, and are YOU screwing to lower the divorce rate??

When are you getting that laptop--I might go through withdrawal.

Have fun, hug the manatees for me, take lots of pix and post them.

Nature trails and hot springs, that sounds like my kinda place. Have fun!

I'm guessing you have another Sumo wrestling match lined up.

Columbus Ohio had manatees for a while at the Zoo and I took Poot there to see them (long time ago) They were awesome creatures. Hope you're back home in one piece and I'll check with my friend in Maui to see if they need any critters over there you can deliver.
