I would like to thank each of the wonderful bloggers who wrote such engaging articles for me while I was on vacation the last few days. We have such an amazing and diverse blogging community here on WordPress. We all benefit from meeting new folks, reading different viewpoints, and learning a few new things. At the same time, I would like to thank the regular readers of Silver Threading for welcoming my guests with open arms, which is the spirit of blogging that I most enjoy engaging in.
Ron and I had a fabulous time with our daughter Ronda, and the new man in her life, Patric. We did the usual tour around the town of the beach and the Pensacola Pier. It was a hot, humid day on Sunday and this fellow met us on the pier.
I believe he is some type of crane. The bird was watching the fishermen on the pier hoping for a chance to steal a tiny morsel from their bait buckets. That got us thinking about our next stop, Joe Patti’s famous seafood market where we bought enough fish to barbecue for a week.
The rest of the time, we enjoyed each other’s company. It was a joy to see our daughter this happy. We cooked and laughed and told stories. Both Ron and Patric are retired Air Force crew-chiefs, so we never lacked for entertaining stories of our men and women in the military.
Yesterday, it was decided that a couple of trees around the horse-hole in our backyard needed to be removed before a storm came along and knocked them down.
The trees were felled in short order and the branches bundled up and put on the curb to be picked up by our local trash men. It was a fun day. In the afternoon, we barbecued steaks, mahi-mahi, and cod. The humidity increased during the day forcing us indoors into the air conditioning.
We have just returned from dropping Ronda and Patric off at the airport. I am sad that our visit was over as quickly as it had begun. I must say we had the best time.
I am worn out from having so much fun! Tomorrow is another day. I will do the Writer’s Quote Wednesday Weekly Wrap-up tomorrow and get a new post ready for this week. Now, I need a vacation from my vacation! Thanks again, and I will see you all tomorrow.
