Beach Vacation

Massive appoligies to Entrecarders. As you can see from the pictures below, I have been real busy, and haven't had time to drop cards. I'm way behind on posts and frankly don't have a real good excuse as to why.

Lounging on the beach.

These boys are over achievers don't you think?

A bird blatantly ignores the warning sign.

Thomas Edison's lab in Fort Myers Florida.

The banyan tree. It may look like several different trees but actually it is all part of the same tree! This is the largest banyan tree in the continental United States.

A Special Election Day Knitwithcats Award

The Knitwithcats Award is given to those who excel in finding excuses not to blog. This time the award goes to someone who has every reason TO blog right now--a new baby, a new career, and if news from the gossip rags are correct, a recent change in marital status. This would be a great time to update all his fans on the recent goings on in his life. However, it appears that my once upon a time presidential pick has not updated his blog or his Facebook page since January!

His last post was lengthy and, frankly, had too many words for me to care to read the whole thing (especially since I just started reading the Twilight series. Have you read that? I'm loving it! But I digress...). It ended with:

Do not turn away from these great struggles before us. Do not give up on the causes that we have fought for. Do not walk away from what's possible, because it's time for all of us, all of us together, to make the two Americas one.
Yes John, yes! Don't give up these great struggles. Instead, why don't you share them with the public via your personal blog. Maybe throw in a recipe or two. Banana bread or pecan pie would be a nice touch. Let us know what you have been doing with yourself lately. Do you knit? Because my friend Essie just let us know about a great sale they are having on thick wool at one of the yarn stores and we would be happy to let you in on the deal. How about some pictures of your pets wearing funny hats or sunglasses. People always like to see those sorts of things. See John? So many things to blog about that I really don't know what you are waiting for.

It seems I am not the only one missing Edwards' blog posts. News Groper just went ahead and made up a post for him, empathetically titled Oh cut me some slack, the cancer was in remission!

So, John Edwards, this knitwithcats award is for you. Sorry, there is no monetary benefit to getting this award but if you leave me your address, I will knit a nice little sweater for the new baby and send it your way.
