Normally warm and sunny Fl as well, gulf coast just minutes from the beach but today it is cool and crisp and a welcome change from the heat!

Australia you say? That is the one place I want to go if I ever have the chance to travel.

Of course now that I have kids they want to go see the Croc Hunter and the Wiggles. So much for diving the reefs until they get older Roll Eyes

You'll have a great time and will be amazed at how much the "town" has grown.

Donna......the City is just beautiful right now -- decorated beautifully for the holidays. Wednesday evening I walked through Rockefeller Center and the tree is great this year. Can't wait to see it lit up!


Isn't the tree lighting Wednesday night? Ohhh man...I would love to go up to visit NYC. I swear to goodness, I'm going to go once for The Macy's Parade and stay through for the next week with the tree lighting, ice skating and more.

Enjoy your cooler weather!
Donna
The only time I miss NY is Christmas!

My Dad worked at NBC at 30 Rocefeller Plaza so we always had a great window view of the tree Wink

Here we have a Christams Boat Parade, the boats are all decorated with lights and it sure is something to see!

Last year they had real snow at the Charlotte County Stadium but we never made it down there. A few years ago a friend brought us a cooler full for my son!
I've lived in Minnesota my entire life and I truly hate the winters. My grandparents came on the boat from southern Italy. I look like my Danish father, but I think I have my Italian Grandma's blood and love of milder climes. We have snow. It's snowing right now. And do you know how all that salt eats at your car? I'm sick of winter already. I would absolutely love a mild, nonsnow Christmas. But it will be bitter cold and icy, I'm sure. It always is.

You can't take your organs with you to heaven, and heaven knows we need them here. Please be an organ donor and let your family know of your wishes.
I currently live in Freezzziinngg Coolldd Utah! Been here since '81, but raised in sunny So. Cal! If you want snow, I can send you shovel loads! My oldest son just moved to Brooklyn. Frown He's been telling me about the nice weather y'all are having over there. But, just you wait, winter is a'coming and it will hit NY too. Smile

Love the term eBay work clothing! HA! If our buyers could just see how decked out we are in front of our puters.

I perked on you using the word ya'll...somewhere in your lineage must be southern..Admit it, are you a closet southerner? <smile>

COLD COLD COLD!
I guess it wouldn't do to tell you that I'm freezing here in FL with temps last night in the 40s...<wink>

FINALLY! You gave me the dang longitude and latitude but brain cells couldn't even google it.

Iowa? Pillaging and plundering are infamous for that state...How lucky you fit right in. Or did you start it? <smile>

You changed your quote...you don't feel like screaming anymore? <smile>

this *avast maties* talk reminds me ...

a pirate walked into a bar with a steering wheel stuck down his pants. "hey! what's that steering wheel doing in your pants?" asked the bartender.

the pirate said "yarrrr! it's driving me nuts!"

Big Grin hey! my 4 yr old nephew told me that!
