Thursday in Florida

I am in Florida this week, a wonderful get-away from my super busy lifestyle up north. Well, that is me being sarcastic, for those of you who read my blogs and know me. I am busy every day but not so much that I can’t handle it!

Anyhow, I just returned from having a wonderful dinner with my father and step-mother at The Bayou. I had crawfish etoufee. The Bayou was a restaurant located on a small canal in St. Petersburg. It is still the Bayou but they have moved it into town and have torn down the old place. The old restaurant was so out of code it wasn’t funny so I get why they moved but it was the atmosphere and the “dumpiness” of it that made it the restaurant it was. The new place is nice but it is nice…No old Louisiana feel. No Mardi Gras feel. The food was still good, for now. I know I am being super pessimistic but isn’t that what happens when a great place tries to do a super upgrade? No one wanted the upgrade. So, redo the toilet so it is handicap accessible…Ugh, anyhow, enough of that.

I decided today to add to my blog site a “follow me” button. This is already present on my blog but I put a new one and it says something like, “follow me for positivity”. I am thinking about expanding my blog and actually using my experience and education to help others. I don’t really know how it will go yet. If you have ideas, please let me know. In my head I am picturing a sort of email like “Dear Abby” where adults and children can ask about dealing with different things. Okay, so that is totally vague but I haven’t really worked out the idea. I want to help people deal with life’s debacles in a positive way.

My new positivity site will be in the works until I have it figured out. Would you mind leaving me comments with ideas, do’s, don’ts, “we don’t want to hear about its”, etc.

Have a peaceful evening. Feel free to question my qualifications. Feel free to comment. I am a person who grows off of feedback and without it I flounder like a fish out of water!

FOWC with Fandango — Solve

Solve this 

Little Betty Ann Sue had a problem 

With her shoe. 

She had two laces and a knot 

She couldn’t solve this twisted plot. 

She thought she’d like to see the bay 

The only way she’d be okay. 

She took her mama and her pop 

Up to the pier to look on top. 

She screamed and yelled because of this 

Her parents saw the fun they’d miss 

If they didn’t find a way  

To keep her quiet for that day. 

LIttle Betty Ann Sue fell upon the deck 

Almost hard enough this time, enough to break her neck.  

Three Line Tales, Week 196

Night of the Harvest Moon

We were always told never to walk alone in the woods on the night of the Harvest Moon.

Tonight here I am walking, alone, in the night, with only the orange glow of a fictional moon to guide me.

If I do not make it out of the woods tonight I hope that the next person listens when they are told to never walk alone in the woods on the night of the Harvest Moon.

Fish should wait

We wait and wait to do what’s right 

But isn’t fish that take one bite? 

To know that it is their next meal 

A worm on a hook is a pretty good deal. 

Little do they know that on the end 

Is a little hook, not a friend. 

And if they bite they will find death 

Instead of food, their last breath. 

So do not bite the first , just wait. 

This time its best to procrastinate.
