Another nice November day at the beach with my favorite gals.
We're under Johnny Mercer's fishing pier and it's windy as hell.
Couldn't get the girls to hold a pose! Notice Emily's sweater! It's one of my old shirt sleeves with two holes cut out for her legs! You think I would buy her something a little more classy? Abigail thrives in the cold!

My ex and I used to always meet up on Fayetteville Street's entrance to Wrightsville beach in the late 80's. I saw this park bench sitting there today and couldn't resist getting these shots.
Getting my exercise now as we cross Banks Channel. I actually went under this bridge in the dark of night in a friends Tunnel Hull racing boat running about 70 MPH. It was back in 1974 or 1975 and we were running from the Coast Guard's Patrol boat. They didn't have anything that could catch us back in those days. Kind of like a redneck version of Miami Vice! My friend died sometime in the early 90's . Drugs and Alcohol finally took a toll on his liver. This place sure brings back some good and bad memories!
Emily........Please don't drink there! Yes....somebody peed in the pool! It's the thought that counts isn't it! We have bottled water in the car shug! This is one of the pictures I took a few weeks ago when it was even warmer. I had a smudge on the lens which makes the Dog Bar look worse than it really is. Emily will drink straight from the tap, so no worries. Abigail on the other hand isn't that picky!
Throughout most of the story, this movie's character is obsessed with getting in touch with ultimate reality and has little use for the "clutter and clatter" of mundane daily life. He admits to a colleague that "Emily tells me that she loves me but I don't know what that MEANS? I THINK it means that she prefers the pain we inflict on each other to the solitary pain we would otherwise inflict upon ourselves?" When, however, at the very end of the movie Emily has yet again pulled him back from the brink of the abyss of non-being, he finally says to her for the very first time, "I love you, Emily."

OK.....Can you tell me what movie this is? I wish I didn't relate to the way this character thinks. However.......sometimes I think my "Emily" & Abigail inflict the only true joy in my life!........Hmmmmmm......what makes us post the things we post?

I could smell it before I even put the key in my post office box! That wonderful aroma had me craving hotcakes smothered in strawberries from the start, but I had to settle for eyeball smothered in purified water & glycerin instead!
Just kidding Chrissy! I love it! Of course I'm scared to take it in the shower with me? It keeps staring at me!

My favorite Canadian blogger sent this to me from the Manitoulin Soap Factory. Chrissy, you are the sweetest blogger on the internet! Could you imagine working there and smelling all those amazing aromas all day?
I first saw one of these soap bars with a little lizard in it on Ms.mamma's blog where you had sent her and Snowflake one. I thought that was so neat that you were so kind to do something so whimsical and carring!
Thank you so much for my present Chrissy.A big redneck hug to you and hubby both!

Wrightsville Beach
We played hookie Wednesday and snuck down to the beach! It was heaven. I took loads of pictures but I didn't notice the smudge on the camera lens. The rest of the shots were pretty much ruined after these shots. I don't know if it was dog slobber, or sea spray on the lens? But it was still a perfect day!
