October , Thursday 6 - Wednesday 12
POST...), I feel it's time to move on. So Bye, bye, to WEEK 84 and WELCOME WEEK 85!!!
And so WEEK 85 starts. It's Thursday the 6th of October, 2011. My nephew Oscar's
wedding was only two days away. I sat on my living room's green sofa. I thought. And thought
some more. I sighed. I couldn't do it... but one way... my ugly, old, falling-apart, purple Dodge
Stratus would have to do.God help me.
The next day I was on my way. This was going to be my last road trip in the U. S. and I had
NINE hours to dream about seeing my sister, the wedding, Florida sunshine and walks on the
beach. I was determined to make the most out of it... or so I thought. You see, as soon as I
got there... the weather changed, and Brevard County, my destination point, would be hit full
force, for the next 72 hours, by a tropical drepression....
I must say, that for an outside wedding, that had to be changed into a last-minute, inside
wedding, everything turned out beautifully!!
atop the stairs! And that wasn't all... more changes had to be done!
Here is my nephew, Oscar
with his son, Daniel,
following a couple of Hilda's
many, many instructions....
I followed what she said too,
but there was a moment
when the sky stopped
So I used the old camouflage trick.... grabbed my camera
and went out to explore the soggy premises!!
At first I was attracted to the plants- But I sure wished there was better light.
Oh, well! It is what it is! At least I was there, looking at something else besides
Georgia pine trees!
And then I saw water... I had to go there even if it had begun to drizzle.
As I walked toward the boardwalk,
a nervous squirrel squeaked it's head
off... At first I thought she was cute.
Poor thing probably nervous due to
the stormy weather. But then I
thought, "What if she is rabid!
What if she jumps down and bites me!
I better move on!"
Ah, yes... I moved on toward the
water, but the winds were picking
up force... I really thought my camera
would fly away! And seeing the boats
sway in the water didn't make me feel
too secure either...
And there were sharks lurking out there!
WHAT IF ONE JUMPED OUT AND BIT ME!!!
It was best to head back and finish helping with the wedding...
It was safer.
As I walked back, a ray of sunshine broke through the clouds...
