I gave up some of my blood to the people in the Big Red Bus last week and I got a t-shirt in return. The bus comes into Raintree every year and usually gets a goodly number of people willing to open a vein for a while. I am a fast donor and am usually in and out in 45 minutes, paper work and all. Besides the t-shirt, I got some juice and cookies! Not a bad trade!
We also went to Manatee Park. It's across the road from the power plant and the Manatees flock in to the warmer power plant water when the Gulf of Mexico is too cold for their liking. There were about 50 of them there. The most you ever see of a Manatee is it's back and it's nose when it comes up for air. When it's resting, it is able to stay underwater for 20 minutes.
They have very heavy, dense bones which helps them to stay on the bottom while they graze.

We have a super bowl, the 2-foots do the washing up in it.

This one involves snacks, sodas, beer, lots of cheering if your team is winning and lots of groaning if your team is losing. As for me, I never even know what teams are playing unless someone tells me!

Are you near any sinkholes? Just been watching a show about them in Florida.

No, thank goodness, though several of them happen each year here. As the water table is drawn down, it creates an empty space and the land above colappses. They have swallowed houses, roads, cars and sometimes, killed people.

On another note, the smaller of the eaglets in the nest near here died yest. It was in the paper, as people love to watch them. Don't know if I ever gave you the website: www.dickpritchett.com.
I believe that will work for you. Let me know. How's freddie_f_lop?
Better, I hope.

There was a one hour science show about them the other day - why they are concentrated in some areas, that sort of thing. Some spectacular film!
Freddie ran up the stairs today, so he is back on form, but the arthritis will not go away.
Thanks for the eagle website.

You're welcome. Even Merry and Ringo (Mr. Andy's buns) have arthritis these days. Comes with age. (I should know, I have some myself)!
