I Hope You Dance!

Stop over at Willow Manor ! Watch Matt the Dancing Guy dance all over the world. It is beautiful and inspiring. Just goes to show you if you dance the world will dance with you, for you, around you, and because of you. I hope you dance!


Meanwhile, in Palm Harbor, we went out today to pick up a few things for ourselves and for the doggies. There is a sense of preparedness with folks filling shopping baskets with easy to keep food items, water, batteries, - you know the drill. At least some of you do. Hurricane season is upon us, the water shelves are emptying out, the gas pumps are empty and we're keeping an eye on the weather reports as Fay swirls over Cuba with her eye on the Florida peninsula.



We added a few things to our pantry. Important stuff like tonic water, Cheetos, flan, black beans - for black beans and rice - and a cucumber. We also bought Merrick (flour free) dog food and flourless dog treats. Layla is still bumpy and itchy from sneaking over to Lucy's dish and eating her food. The antihistamines help for a few hours, but by the time she is due the next dose she's all bumpy again. Her bumpiness could also be from the overgrown grass next door so I'm keeping her away from that. She'll be better in a day or two.



The hurricane watch has been extended all the way up the west coast of Florida including our area. The track of TS Fay is still unknown, but the overall feeling is if it does strengthen to hurricane force it will be a cat 1. With current reports it looks like it may either come overland north of us or stay in the gulf. The real track and intensity is never really known except as it happens. They jog and stall and do whatever they want so it's best to just be prepared and then see what happens. Palm Harbor is at 28.07 Lat and 82.726 Long. I hope Fay isn't!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Please take care in this storm threat. I can remember living in south Florida and going through some really big hurricanes in the 60's. I will be thinking about you.

Haven't danced the polka in quite a few years, but I've had the opportunity at a zillion Polish weddings!
