Our first hotel was in the second row behind the Ritz at SoBe Miami

I took an airoboat ride with a SC family. Here the same applies as in gyro-summer flying. If you cannot harness your smile, chew thoroughly and swallow slowly.

Then we traveled North to Naples, where the pelicans were plentiful and free of oil

Visited Ernie and Connie and somehow Chuck escaped this photo. A great experience, we probably stole half a day of work from you people, sorry, but it was just too interesting.

Also went by Thomas' place in Fort Myers

And finally, with a tear in the eye, flew out again out of Miami.

This was the abridged version, of course there was much more to tell, but I don't want to bore you...

oh, JR, I drove past your home, then. I must admit, I only stayed 1 hr. in Fort Myers, they had to turn off the lights in the museum to get rid of me.

I like your grasshopper photo, Kai.

As a small boy, my pals and I kept them as pets. We’d tie a length of sewing thread to one leg and stake them out so they could graze.

But I guess today’s video games are more exciting.

Kai, I didnt offer anything for you due to the fact I knew you would be up against the clock to make your pre-planned rounds. Next time.

Chuck, having cicadas of pets is quite common in China. With some education (i.e. poke and feed) you can make them "sing" on command. But you are correct, youngsters today rather go to war virtually.
