Scenes From A Vacation

In response to all the notes and requests we've received, we have decided to answer a few of the many questions we've been asked while we are away......ahem! OK maybe there weren't a lot of questions but I'm sure that if you had time to write them, there would have been.

Here's a picture of the treasure that's on the beach waiting for someone to pick it up and achieve wealth beyond that of ordinary landlubbers. That's right. Shark's teeth! Millions of them just lying there! Who Knew? Finding things like this are tremendously meaningful until you get them home and wonder, "What am I going to do with all this fishy smelling stuff?"

This is what we see outside out condo window every morning. I'm not sure exactly what they're doing (Kelly says they're 'fishing') but I've read a lot of spy novels and I'm pretty convinced they are smuggling spies across the border! You tell me! Does this look innocent to you? Either way, they show up in the same spots every morning, just floating around, casting their alleged 'nets' out and bringing in supposed 'fish' to the 'market' in town. They're not fooling me!

Below, you can see Ruth and Todd. Ruth is the one on the left. Todd is the one who is not pregnant. That's the Atlantic Ocean behind them. If you look hard enough, you can see England in the distance!

Finally, this is what Kelly and I look like when we are on vacation. I am the one on the right, cleverly disguised as a guy without any facial hair so I can infiltrate the deadly spy ring operating our of Snead's Ferry, a small 'town' near us that is home to a nefarious group of foreign agents cleverly disguised as 'normal' people. Kelly is smiling patiently while she waits for me to 'get over this phase'. I think she may be an impostor!

See you Sunday!
