Back to the Real World

Well, here I am folks. Back from my Florida Beach hiatus. It's awfully hard to be back in the real world. We had a great time at the F.I.R.E. show. We made 4 new purchases. We got mostly mates for the crew we already have. Here's our list: 1 female hypo golden gecko, 1 male hypo tangerine male, 1 sandfire x chris allen red bearded dragon, and one female crested gecko. Got them all pretty cheaply. Not a bad shopping trip, if I do say so myself. They all made the trip home fine, and they are all eating like little pigs. On Saturday night, I hooked up with one of my oldest, childhood friends, Barbara. We've been friends, since the 6th grade. We'd lost touch, since both of us married 7 years ago. It just so happens, we hooked up shortly after this past Christmas. She is newly divorced and now employed by Disney and is living in Orlando.Casey and I met Barabara and her new boyfriend, Abraham at Carrabba's for dinner. After a fabulous meal, we all headed out to Epcot to see the Illuminations fireworks show. I just love watching that show. This was the 3rd year in a row that I've been able to see it. Barabara, being a Disney employee, got us all in free, and we also rode in her car for free parking. Anyway, we all had such a fabulous time!It was so good to be able to sit and visit with her again. We drove the entire trip home in one day. Needless to say, we both needed butt cushions by the end. We got back into town around 8:30 p.m., and went straight to Kindred Spirits to pick up Bear. He got a very good report. He was well behaved and no trouble at all. Seems he had a grand old time, while we were away. He was in psycho crazy play mood, when he saw us there. I got many puppy kisses on the drive home, which is a rarity. Bear is not much of a kissy dog at all. That was the first time in the year that I've had him that he's done that, so he must of missed me a little bit admist the fun. Slate, Shiloh, and Lola fared well too under the care of my Mom. The cats and kittens all were well also. I have lots of pictures that I hope to get posted soon. It seems that Casey and I have lost the connector cords for downloading for our camera somewhere in our own house. Until we find them, I'll just run to Walgreen's or something over the weekend and download them to CD. As soon as that task is finished, I'll be sure to post them for you. Until next time....
