Too long gone

Big sigh. No specific reason that we have been away from the blogger world but we're back. Speaking of back- the momma's just returned from a week long tour of medical centers in Florida. We were visiting sick family members on both the east and west coast of Florida. We took a short break from the sterile institutions and checked out the manatees again at Blue Springs like we did 4 years ago. This time there were more than 200 in the springs staying warm away from the unseasonably cold weather. Saw a big old alligator too.

Checked out the beach on the Atlantic side and also on the Gulf side but both were too cold to get in but I did spot a dolphin playing in the water.

Met some nice birds on the beach where we had a couple of adult beverages with friends before we left to come home.

And spotted a happy 4-legged with his human relaxing on a bench a few yards away.

Speaking of 4-legged's- Bentley, Roux, Walter, and Bridgette say Hello!

As you can tell in the picture above, the Bentman is still a loudmouth.

I almost forgot. I met these two cuties at our friends the day before we left- Max and George. They gave me some much missed critter time the day before we left to come back home. That George is a toy playing fool just like the Roux.

Anyway- just a short update so you would know we are still alive and kicking on this planet Earth. And if you don't mind, can you please Vote for Texas Airedale Rescue Team in the Shelter Contest at the Animal Rescue Site-
