Friday Meanderings

So what’s going on in your life?

Here’s what’s happening in mine!

It’s great weather here on the nature coast.  I’ve been spending mornings trying to beat back the weeds in the flower beds.  Just want to keep ahead.  (ain’t happening) The flowers are beautiful.  Birds and butterflies everywhere.  If I only stayed home long enough to enjoy it!

Cause I got stuff to do!

First thing is I want to tell you that this is a Remora. Terry caught it while we were fishing in the “flats”. I know, you already knew it and didn’t bother to tell me!   so embarrassed

A good friend that volunteers at the Learning Center knew immediately what it was when I showed her the photo! And here’s what the WORLD WIDE WEB says:

The remora fish attaches to the belly of the shark by a sucker disc in it’s mouth. It travels everywhere the shark goes. It eats any parasites on the shark which helps keep the shark clean. It also eats any leftover food from the shark. The remora (sucker fish) gets to eat and the shark stays clean and healthy.

So my friend says that sneaker tread mark on the top of its head attaches to the shark.  Yeck! And why was it out attacking our fake fish bait?????

Hope it found its shark!

And I hope it was not a big shark because now I’m thinking about that was a really big remora and does that mean that there’s a really big shark in the flats?

Okay.  Next up.  The Bluegrass Festival.  Went there to find a cool band for the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival.

Fail.

They were okay.

But we need a band that will make people get up and dance.  And buy beer.  Yep.  That’s a BIG money maker for the festival.  And the one I liked sang a lot of gospel.  Probably not a big seller of Adult Beverages!

But Fort Cooper is amazing.  We need to go back and just check out the entire place. It’s one of the FEW places I haven’t posted about!!!!!

On Sunday we went to Mainsail Festival at Vinoy Park in St. Pete.  Only took us 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there.  Then it took us 20 minutes to find parking that was 30 minutes away!

Okay.  I exaggerate.  But you know what I mean!

We were going to check out the competition for the Homosassa Festival. And exactly how do you compete with this….

What a BEAUTIFUL setting!

Our friend and neighbor, Kevin Jenkins got a red ribbon.

I love his art.  I think I need some of those fish on one of my walls!

Next up, the Old Homosassa Heritage Council Scavenger Hunt.  Kick-off party was Sunday night.

Fun. Fun. Fun.  If you haven’t entered already, it’s not too late.  Registration cuts off on May 20th.  All donations go to painting that water tower.  (I know, you’ve heard that before)

Anyhow, I write for NatureCoaster.com now and post on Tuesdays.  Here’s the post and photos from that:  https://www.naturecoaster.com/scavenger-hunt-with-the-old-homosassa-heritage-council/

Just wanna say, I’m still posting at least three days a week–just on three different blogs.  And I post on the FB pages for the Old Homosassa Heritage Council, The Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival, the Old Homosassa Learning Center, and the Old Homosassa Civic Club. And I do all their websites and now I’m feeling really tired.

And I instagram.  DesignsKTG. That’s me.

Here’s a couple of my instagram snaps:

What happened to the deck???

Finished!

And here I am snapping a snappity snap of the door at the Homosassa Special Water District:

And because I still do the entertainment for the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival, very excited about the new stage.

I also do the website and am now the assistant to the Crafts Director.

Got Craft???

This weekend is a little more laid back.  On Saturday we are headed to Cayla’s Coat’s Disco Night.  This group gives money to coats, swim lessons, and life jackets.  It’s a sad story that I might have told you before and I’m not going into again.  But it’s a great cause.

And then I’m taking it easy.  Probably be out fighting back those weeds!

Have a great weekend!

Kathy
