Another mostly slow day today — watching Gordon Ramsey berate people and then headed out to re-check a place we are thinking about making our ‘permanent’ place. Nice 2 bedroom directly on the beach. It’s not the best swimming beach on the island by far, but it is on the beach…. We are also going to look at another place tomorrow, not on the beach, but actually in the same complex we’re in now…… We’re hoping for a few better amenities than the beach place offers….. so more on that tomorrow.
We did stop in at Blues for a couple of drinks and to let them know we are still alive and kicking….. stopped and picked up some Mickey-D’s on the way home (49 minutes to get through the drive through….. we are definitely not in Kansas any more) and came back and enjoyed our Quarter pounders while we watched more Hell’s Kitchen.
Not a heckva lot else to ramble about, so I’m gonna leave you with a poem I learned from my Dad….. I think I may have put this up here a long time ago – but it is a timeless classic and in my opinion – words to live by. I think the original version came from Milton Berle, and I think Dear Old Dad may have remembered it slightly different – but this was Dad’s version and the one I memorized…. so feel free to copy or share.
I’d rather be a could be,
If I couldn’t be an are.
For a could be, is a maybe,
With a chance of touching par.
I’d rather be a has been,
Than a might have been by far.
For a might have been, has never been.
But a has was once an are.
Good night ya’ll……… Thankx for stopping in~!
View from our possible new place…..
in all his magnificence
