I live on an island in the Tampa Bay area. The Gulf of Mexico is 100 yards from my front door and I could throw a stone into the Intracoastal Waterway from my front yard, so I am surrounded by water. Boating is huge here, and one thing I’ve noticed is this: when you put a young man on a boat in good weather, he immediately sheds most of his clothing, or if the setting is private, all of his clothing. 😉
How would you like to spend a day on the water with either guy in today’s photo posts?
I spent a quiet night at home yesterday. I dined on leftovers from the Greek restaurant, and I watched an excellent Netflix film titled The Rider, about a young rodeo star who is seriously injured and can’t ride broncos or bulls anymore. It was a very quiet and beautifully acted film, and I’m glad I watched it.
Today will be a busy one for me. Yesterday, after I left the YMCA, I visited Home Depot to purchase mulch, plants and potting soil. I have three outdoor plants I need to pot for my patios, and I also need to spread about six bags of mulch to complete my fall mulching. At four PM my Florida Gators play Missouri, and then I may have a date tonight, so I’ll stay active all day and night. That’s a good thing, right?
Yesterday, we had some severe weather with high winds and lots of rain, and now cool weather has moved into central Florida. A breeze is blowing from the northeast and the high today will only be 70 degrees F. It’s about damned time fall arrived here, and the cool and dry weather will make outdoor work easier.
All right, friends, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a delightful Saturday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂
