Friday Meanderings

Mr. “Go Daddy” let me down today.  I tried to do my post and THAT’S NOT HAPPENING!  Last time I called Go Daddy about this same exact occurrence, my tech was like “oh yeah, we’re having issues, all hands on deck.”  


Just takes a couple hours and WE’RE BACK!  But, I really wanted to post two hours ago.   


Went to the very first official crime watch meeting for Old Homosassa on Monday night.  When we moved here 12 years ago I had no idea we had a drug problem right here in Old Homosassa.  That’s because I was living in a bubble.  Now I know better.  

And we had over 50 people at the meeting which I thought was very cool.  Also thought that it was very cool that at least four attendees had Old Homosassa Heritage Council t-shirts on.  (And Terry and I did not even think about wearing our t-shirts. What is wrong with us?)

The meeting started and we had a lot of great input and we had people volunteering to be neighborhood captains and we are getting crime watch signs.  After about an hour it dissolved into, why aren’t the deputies here more often?  And we heard that we only have so many deputies to cover so much of the county.  Okay.  Heard that before.

And then the next day.  While we were driving home.  A deputy does a U-turn at the post office to track down a golf cart. Really?  We have only so many deputies here.  And we have a whole lot of meth houses here.  And we’re chasing golf carts??????

Just saying.

OKAY.  Moving on….

We went to the “Save our Waters Week” dinner on Friday night.  It was quite interesting.  Current and past county commissioners were there.  Gerry Mulligan, publisher for the Citrus Chronicle was a speaker.  I’m going to make his speech short.  We can’t continue being the cheap place to live and keep living the good life.

Gary Kuhl followed him up.  I’ve read his articles in the paper.  His speech was excellent. Same message.  

Can’t keep polluting and expect to have clean water.


Terry and I keep doing what we can.

Meanwhile, the wedding of our last unmarried child is taking place in four weeks.  I gotta lose 20 pounds! (yeah, it’s always about me!)

What do your think are the chances of that happening?  Oh, the wedding is happening but probably not the 20 pounds.  

I don’t think they’ll care!

Terry’s mom and friend are coming up this weekend.  We’ll be going to the “Paint and Wine” evening at Watson’s Gallery. Doing some local restaurants and other fun stuff.  Hopefully by boat!  

By the way, Scalloping season is OVER!

Have a GREAT weekend.
