I thought I saw a Pirate ship...when I was barely 6!
Today I saw a Pirate ship...I'm nearly 66!
The adventure continues...Clearwater, Florida 1/24/12
Although my ship hasn't come in just yet, my Florida adventure, now in its 4th week, is going well. I've been able to turn a few sand dollars into dollars, and have started work on some new paintings!
The drive south to Florida was fun. The road was clear, the diners on the back roads were awesome, and there was BBQ and churches everywhere! One place had it all....BBQ and church in the same building! And I had a chance to spend some quality time packing trivets with my Georgia staff (i.e. family) along the way.
Although 5 AM set-ups come early the snowbirds have arrived for the season, the crowds have been good and the shows have been fun. The first show was in The Villages in central Florida... one of the largest and most active retirement communities in the world. I'm happy to report that even at 85 years of age one "never seems to have enough trivets"! So the trivet business is good here in Florida. Viva la trivet!
If you are down in Florida this winter please check out the show schedule and drop by one of the shows.
In the early 1950's my family used to drive down to Florida for the winter. We drove down in our 1949 Kaiser Frazer. So when I was packing up the old Jeep today I was thinking about those winter trips, which were mainly on the secondary roads south from Pennsylvania, before the Interstate Highways.
Tomorrow I'm driving down to Florida for the winter.... to paint and do a few craft shows. And I think I'll take a few back roads ...maybe I'll find a Stuckeys along the way. If you are going to be in Florida during the next few months please drop by one of the shows.
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
