  • Eastern_black_swallowtail_3

    All butterfly photos were taken my the front yard's butterfly garden.

    Florida is a fabulous state for butterflies! In my butterfly garden you will daily see Cloudless Sulphur, Zebra Longwing (the official Florida State Butterfly), White Peacock, Gulf Fritillary, Monarch, Queen, Eastern Black Swallowtail, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and Giant Swallowtail butterflies... and some spring/summer/fall days you may see all of them!

    Enjoy the photos, but please remember that all are Copyright 2006 by the blog owner. Use is prohibited except for express permission.

You are absolutely the funniest writer ever. I just loved this post, and I'm praying that you can enjoy seasons soon.



Hurricane Preparedness

1. Toss dogs, kids, and clean underwear in car.
2. Call real estate agent and tell her this is a good week for her to throw an Open House.
3. Gas up.
4. Point car at Pennsylvania
5. Go play at AK's house. (Talk about everything we can think of except maybe politics.)
6. Wait till real estate agent calls you to say lights are back on.
7. Drive home.


You are going to love it here!

Jo's Boys

LOL you guys!!!

Okay, Jeni, first of all I would like to say that you are AMAZING for being on the internet! I hope all is well with your new little ones.

Now, AK, thank you for the invitation. :) At this point let me say that you and I would probably agree 95% in the political arena. Does that surprise you?? :)

The problem is, nobody comes to open houses. I'm not making this up.

Crissy, here, listen. Last year there were 3,000 houses on the market in this area and 3,000 buyers. Houses were snatched up the minute they listed.

This year, and I am not making this up, there are 26,000 houses for 3,000 buyers. This is because obnoxious investors have dumped their houses onto the market, making it impossible for anyone to sell their house. People don't come to open houses. Realtors don't come to REaltor open houses. Even when cash prizes are offered.

26,000 houses for 3,000 buyers. It's not good, y'all.

Under the Sky

Hey, but that nasty Ernesto was downgraded to some mighty fierce wind and rain. Thank God for no raging hurricane!

Praying for a sale! Hey, maybe you can offer a free generator with house purchase price. :+)


(Who is here, reading your blog...)


How did you fare with Ernesto? According to Alaska, it's Fall . . . in my house... :-)


Where, oh where, did my Jooooooo go? Oh where, oh where, can she beeeee?


Please tell me you're not blogging because you are en route to the Great Northwest. ?? Or because you've won the lottery and you're currently in the Bahamas with the boys, studying coral reefs and nomadic coastal lifestyles. Whatever it is you're doing, I hope you're okay. Check in, we miss you!
