Sad lane for me, originally uploaded by Tink*~*~*. 11 Jan ’09, 5.59pm EST PST
well, i am not retired yet, nor am I on vacation. So it is with great sadness that I leave the island and the company of friends to return to mundane life on the mainland. Until next time!
Blue moon, I saw you standing alone…. I have to go home soon… 🙁
It’s the magical ambiance of the bar at McT’s

Yo, Sno and Chuch – we miss ya! You get your own exclusive toast, performed by Tootie, Gary and Bonnie who is finally off work and has joined us.
Plenty of space here for The Mad Hutters to spread out.
Let’s see … Fellow members of The Hut who are not present for Super Crawl Sunday include Fran, Dale, Jeanne, Bonnie and Stefne. Special shout-out from me, Chris and Tootie to Gayle who is freezing her butt off in Alaska. We wish u were here! Special shout-out from me to The Talkies and to mah Spa Sistas, featuring Sunny, Kathleen and my fellow Lawn Guuyland escapee, Debbie. Mwah, kisses!
Miss Bubble Gum has no shame – she cavorts with Johnny No Face as Hermi looks on, drowning his sorrows dejectedly
Served with a junonia – no, not really!
The pickle chips were mostly declared "ok" and the potato skins got the "eh, take it or leave it" thumb
Spinach/artichoke dip and pickle chips. The tortilla chps are served warm!

In the Biddle’s on Sanibel (not to be confused with the Biddle’s in Fort Myers), there’s this neon fish on the wall that I’m told my buddy Dale would love to purloin and hang in her own crib.
We are at Biddle’s on Sanibel
If your college football tams wins, you make the losers wear your team’s t-shirt.
Many of you are aware of a foot injury that happened in mid-ish December and put me on the bench from running. I won’t be off the bench again until Jan 21, which is hopefully the date that the doc says it is ok to start again. Surprisingly, I miss it – so much so that I actually dreamed of running last night!
Anyhow – the foot seems to be a little swollen still. My shelling shoes are tight on that side, and I got a blister yesterday. Tootie gave me a Care Bears band aid to put on it, to keep my regular shoes from rubbing too much. She actually said at first that she had The Little Mermaid band aids, but apparently was fresh out…. 😉
We are getting ready to leave soon for Super Crawl Sunday, so stay tuned!
The day is redeemed as I find a mini baby horse conch aka mac n cheese on Sanibel Island – i’m right in front of Ocean’s Reach
Experimental – took shot holding my polarized lenses in front of lense of my E71 smatphone

Crab claw on the beach reeks!
Picked up a t-shirt at H2Outfitters in the Jerry’s shopping plaza on Sanibel Island
Love this sunshine icon on the coke machine
Omlette with swiss chees, ham and spinach . Julienne hash browns and whole wheat toast included. Jerry’s of Sanibel makes excellent breakfast, all day 🙂
Having lunch with Gary and Tootie at Jerry’s on Sanibel Island
Well, some people may be finding good stuff as a result od the dredging, but not this morning. Stunning negative low tide, expansive tidal pool and even more expansive sand bar – not much in the way of shells. Glad we went though, because it was beautiful out here this morning.

Heading out to Sanibel Island to meet up with friends. We’ve got a full moon, negative low tides in the early mornings, and plans for Super Crawl Sunday, with more people joining the Sunday Sanibel Bar Crawl than ever before. Hoping to find some good shells! OK, gotta go pack a bag. Whenever I have a signal, I’ll be sending photos here to the blog to chronicle all the fun. SCROLL DOWN TO SEE NEW POSTS, THIS ONE IS STICKY THROUGH SUNDAY! *~*~*
