It was just what I needed Tom -- respite from a long and dark winter, with the promise of a return of spring at home.

(I'm hijacking this thread temporarily.)

Thanks for the welcome back, y'all. Kathy, I'm not surprised I missed some verbal volleyball -- isn't that the norm for the Coffee Room? It will take me a few days to read everything since March 3rd.

Bob, I found it difficult to think about piano keys while lollygagging in these Keys:

our cottage

our sunset view

my new friend

Mr. Plays on his toy


And even though I'm home, I still don't have a piano -- my action is at the RPT's shop and won't be returned until tomorrow morning...gives me extra time to do things like laundry and grocery shopping...NOT!

Plays88, since the cat was let out of the bag, this thread has been pretty much of a has-been, so I think thy hyjack will be ok.

re the pictures:

our cottage: looks nice

our sunset view: All that WATER! It must seem like being on the Ocean! :rolleyes:

my new friend: which one is your friend? The one in white?

the Mr. plays on his toy: I'm not sure I want to open that one yet. You didn't have to develop these pictures yourselves, did you? (oh HaHa, shut up,Bob.) Seriously though, could you find one where his face isn't so washed out by the sun?

Nice pics. I'm jealous. There aren't too many places in Florida that call to me. Northern Captiva Island is one, and your picture of the Keys remind me that they are another. I was only there once (on college break). After driving through Miami and suffering the worst allergic attack I've ever experienced (could I be allergic to a city?) the Keys were a heavenly reprieve.

Feel free !

I think it has outlived its original purpose...and yes, KathyK and I do complement each other well....most of the time....

Thanks for the kind words.

By the way, from the photos, looks like you had a real rough week........NOT.

Y'all are all invited to join the plays clan in Florida next time...except we'll all crash at Tom K's place instead of ours. laugh

Well, she turned 21 last month and has only had three boyfriends in all this time, so it isn't a big worry. Mostly I think the guys are intimidated...not only by her physical attributes, but also because she is so very, very intelligent! (can you tell I'm a biased mom?) I think you can probably expect the same sort of thing to happen at your end.

Fine with me. I think I've shown this picture I took a while ago at my Keys house, illustrating the dress code:

The piano is, as you may recognize, a Bsendorfer.

I have no problem going topless. Others may object, but I have no problem. I also have no issue with wearing bikini bottoms. You have all been fairly warned.

Actually, I remember many happy summers spent in the Keys. (Yes, even topless.) Whereabouts is your cottage, Plays? My grandparents had a little place near Marathon.

I have never been to the Keys. My husband has - he said it was beautiful. I'm sure I would just get depressed with all the totally cool tropical flowers and citrus fruits they can grow there...

I do believe that is Tomk's Mrs. At least, I think that's what he said awhile back. Of course, he just told us that was a Bosey, so who knows? wink
