Notes from a foreign country

Trip to Hazels 012

The computer has been far from my mind this week as my little rag tag team of high school friends traveled to the Everglades – or was it Africa?  Not sure, don’t care, and can’t come home just yet.

We became hopelessly lost and found ourselves again in the process.

I know without a doubt that my high school girl friends will always be my favorite traveling companions.  We cavorted with a 1200 pound alligator named Chomper who is almost as old as we are (born 1958).  We sunned beside Queen Victorian Lilly Pads the size of flying saucers. And financed a five-star dinner on our winnings from a one-armed bandit.

We sang with Jimmy Buffet at Margaritaville and ate barbeque in a dump the Swamp People would have passed on.  We dared Chomper to bite us and thumbed our noses at society by running barefoot and naked through the Everglades.

And then I woke up from a fantastic dream.  I can’t wait to go back to bed!
