I went off the rock to Tennessee a couple of weeks ago to visit some of my friends, this was hanging in the Key West International Airport...for $44.95 no less!! Guess who will be getting her paints out?
Friends were teasing me about the seats falling over on American Airline flights. I am proud to say I was on a different airline - and as you can see in the picture above they had used the latest and most sophisticated technological engineering to ensure that nothing like that would occur...
I saw a covered bridge, with ducks in the foreground! I always get excited when I see new creatures besides roosters, iguanas and cats...
Of course, when Island Girls leave the Island, we always HAVE to take a pilgrimage to Wally World.....
To see all the strange and fascinating...STUFF...I had to ask what this was, and of course was horrified when I found out
I got to see mountains, so beautiful, so...not...FLAT! This looks like a screensaver to me.
And my lovely hostess Miss Charley took me to Biltmore, which is in North Carolina, so I went to 2 states (!)
This place was amazingly beautiful, and it was one of those perfect crisp cool fall days.....
You know, the ones where the gargoyles stand out in perfect contrast to the blue sky..
And we got to eat in the converted stables, these were stables people, can you imagine? I would live there in a minute, this could be wonderful if converted into apartments, move over horsies - we NEED affordable housing down here...
And of course they had Cuban on the menu...Smoked Pulled Pork and Fried Bologna? Any Cuban I know would laugh very hard if you tried to serve them this and pass it off as Cuban! But our delicious Key West cuisine certainly infuences alot of people. I was in a restaurant in Seattle once that had "Authentic Key West Key Lime Pie", but I did not ask the poor waiter where they got the Key Limes, nor did I tell him where I was from...
And look how majestic these big boys are!
Well, till they showed me thier as..es..... No kidding, this cracked me up to no end... Have any of you been on vacation to new and different places lately? It does not take much for an Island Girl to be amazed over a new view...a..es and all. It's always good to get away...
