My Bald-Headed Hottie


Isn't he so cute? Admire ladies, but from a distance. He's taken. I know what your saying right now.......How did she get so lucky? No luck. Just ask God. It was all His idea.

In all seriousness, this pic was taken on our recent LOBSTER trip to The Florida Keys. We had a really great time and the boys (a.k.a. The Bug Squad) came back with 72 tails. It sounds impressive. I know. We've had years where they have come back with over 100! Things have changed. Everyone's feeling the hit of the economy. Lobsters don't go out as much. They stay home and enjoy family time. They found the real meaning of life. It's really kind of cute. But come on! It's expensive to go down year after year and come back with less and less every time. Throw us a bone tail here. All we ask for is, at least, enough of you (lobsters) to make the trip worth the outlay of fundage. I know what the readers are saying, "It's quality time and the thrill of the chase." This has been going on now for more than 20 years. I think the time has been of great quality. Now it's just business. Let's get to the bread bugs and butta. Know what I'm sayin'?



The kids had a blast. Michael got to snorkel for the first time. The water was absolutely gorgeous. The weather held up really well.

We swam, we got sun, and we sweat(ed?). It was stinking hot. I know it's summer and August, so, you can imagine how great our A/C felt when we retired for the day.


I have so many pics, it will take me several posts to show all of them. Probably not going to happen. Does anybody really care? If you do, email me....and I will gladly send you some.

Hi Melissa....isn't your husband a pastor? Am I allowed to say that yeah he is pretty easy on the eye? Looks like you had a great time...and I am tearing up reading that Oswald Chambers quote. God always sends me over for a little something something...I on the other hand talk about chocolate boobie milk...

Are you kidding, I love me some good vacay pics. And I will just dream of eating some lobster with drawn butter, since I can't really afford the real thing.

Melissa, I think we'd get along just great in real life. Maybe when the kids are grown and we have more time on our hands than we know what to do with, then we can meet face to face. Until then, we'll just enjoy our bloggy friendship and feed each other comment love :)

I found your blog thru Anissa.
LOVE it! We moved back to my home state from FL 4 yrs ago. Our dear friends would take us "lobstering" annually in the Keys. There is nothing like God's ocean.
Great pics, great blog, I will visit often : )
