There's a picture I have in my mind

There's a picture I have in my mind.
It's not this one, but her smile is the same.
Always true, it shows in her eyes ...
Those Scottish eyes ...
And it tugs right at my heart.

The picture in my mind, is of this ...

We're on the front of a boat,
We're in Mexico, for Mary and Don's wedding.
We're on a half-day trip, from Cancoon to Isla Mujeres (Island of the Women). 
Rosi takes our picture ... 
Me and Nana, 
wind in our hair, leaning towards each other, sharing this grin ...

And while there are oh-so-may many moments ...
So, so many memories, with this amazing woman, that I get to call my own, ...
this one sticks out in my mind, as one of those "perfect days".

I pay to swim with a shark (probably caught the same day). 
I buy my dress for the wedding at this quaint, outdoor, marketplace.
We share lunch with the Captain and his son.
I realize I left my purse at the market place!
Have to take a taxi, with the Captain's son as escort, but am lucky enough to retrieve it!.

Nana laughs with me through it all.

We share a hotel room (Nana, Win, Rosi and myself), 
We ladies all, unbeknownst until later,, each tip the maids generously, and daily.

We have the cleanest unit in the whole darn place, 
as well as the most toiletries and towels ever known to grace a suite.

The maids smile with us through it all.

I scare the daylights out of Nana - errant hairball in the shower (Spider!).

Nana laughs with us through it all.

Nana and I share a bed.
Her snoring doesn't bother me a bit (comforts me, actually).

It's not just one of those perfect days, 
It's one of THOSE perfect days!

And it's so much more than that one day.

It's a lifetime.

But that one day ..,

It's on my mind today.

It's close to my heart ...

She's close to my heart.

Always ...

No Snook Limit for This Guy (prob my best pic of 2011! )

I still can't believe I got this shot (last one), these shots (the series)! Kudo's to my hubby, the captain, who never asks how many shots are enough; as long as I'm clicking, he's facilitating. I took these on the inland (waterway), down around Cape Ramano, on 12/31/2011 ...

A Good Day Fishing ... Unless you're the Snook!

Fish On!

No Snook Limit for this Guy!

The caption on the last, "No Snook Limit", comes from the fact that it's a (permitted) limited-catch fish
... and a really popular, super delicious one!

Hope you enjoyed ~ please share!

This is something you just don't get to see everyday!

Betty's Jelly Jars

Betty's Jelly Jars

My brother gave me a fabulous collection of old Jelly Jars from Gammy (rest in peace). Not only are they interesting, plenty of delicious memories are tied to Betty's Jelly Jars, let me tell you! These ones are currently chillin' in the Orchid house (I have the favorites in my kitchen ... they're likely to make an appearance at some point).

While I haven't found the time for my blog that I'd like (is anyone even still out there? lol) - but I have been keeping up with my picture taking (see next post!). My exuberance tends to far outweigh the practical amount of time I can invest in keeping up. And, I must admit, I have a wandering eye where the internet is concerned ;) And along those lines, I've started posting to a new site: I also started a fb fan page - aparantly way too prematurely! My posts are showing twice on my personal page, nada to my fan page (pffhuh!?) - anyone with experience/advice on this?

Happy New Year!
