My drivers' license tells me I'm 51, but definitely only 19 between the ears.

I feel so refreshed after my little vacation. I went to the Hard Rock Casino, the FL Aquarium, a citrus winery, and spent hours just walking and listening to the waves at the beach. I love being near the water.
I caught up with 2 dear friends - a former friend and colleague from 10 years ago and a friend from my "summer w*rk as a mechanic to put myself through college" era 31 years ago. When I have close friends, I keep them for life.
This was my first "snowbird rents the condo at the beach" trip to FL since I FIREd. There will be many more...to be continued

Now, did someone say something about me and crabs?

Only for the bravehearts amongst us. Upstate NY in the summer is fabulous for the entire week around the 4th of July (a local joke).
It was 40 degrees when I landed in Syracuse, so I didn't go through too much thermal shock.

Well, the thread said you were "crabby"...........but you look pretty happy to me........are women allowed to get a "curmudgeon" plaque, or is it called a "curmudgeonette" award? maybe we need Uncle Mick to comment on this, unless he's still partying on Bourbon Street after "who dat" won last night??

I think he's still in Kansas, isn't he? But the "Who Dat Nation" is still partying and that includes Uncle Mick. The game turned New Orleans upside down!

Frank and I don't even follow football, but we watched the game. EVERYBODY watched the game. What a nail-biter!! It was neck and neck and after what seemed like forever in overtime, that Saints field goal seemed like a dream come true. Our first Superbowl in 43 years of Saints football.

The town came unglued. Around 3-4AM many went straight from the partying to standing in long lines outside of sporting goods stores, to get the first "NFC Champions" hats and t-shirts.

Thanks for the welcomes back!

Curmudgeonette Day is today. I've been unpacking and bemoaning the local weather (rain and cold).
And...to top it all off, my Jets lost yesterday. I was airborne onJetBlue during the game, so I was spared the agony of watching the defeat.

The whining will stop pretty soon. Maybe...

Already plotting my next escape trip...most likely a train trip to NJ to see a high school friend. It's good to be Queen.
