Random Shots

The fruit stand down the street is a favorite place to walk to and then sit in their orange rocking chairs. Vanessa is happy to show off her new friend, Lucky.

Bucs game

After lunch one day at work, an email came about free tickets to the next Tampa Bay Buccaneers football game. A couple of us from the office jumped in the car and raced over to get in line. There were already about 40 people in line. Picked up 6 tickets. It was a Sunday night game and we sat in the very last row up against the wall. Still could see very well though. It was also a tribute night for Mike Alstott #40. The crowd was also on edge because the Rays were playing the Red Sox in game 7 to see who would go to the World Series. Both Tampa teams won.


Went birding near Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge but saw far more butterflies. Also saw a rather large black racer. He posed for a while then decided he'd seen enough of us and went back into the tall grass.


Instead of a Twins/Rays game we went to the St
Pete Pier.

A new rocking chair for mom.
It's a folding model.

A rather large insect. I think some sort of mayfly.
