Okay I know, yesterday's picture was pretty pitiful. What can I's very busy around here. Today's is not much more exciting....although maybe more in focus!

Meet Larry The Lizard. Don't worry he is not in the house. There is actually a window between the two of us. We have these little critters everywhere in the yard. I refer to all of them as Larry. Years ago, when we were on one of the Bahama Islands ( Great Abaco) there were lizards everywhere....and my then two year old chased them...... calling them Larry the Lizard.

Oops he saw me. Bye Larry!...... Back to packing.....

We are headed west today toward Arizona. Hopefully I will find something on the way to share with you..Who knows...maybe even a bigger Larry :).

Great Abaco, boy that brings back a funny memory. Back in the day of business wheeling and dealing, my husband and I (make that my ex) were invited by a business associate to go to his private house on Great Abaco in the Bahamas ( back when you could do that sort of thing....accept business perks). Anyway, we were picked up by a big Mark V Lincoln Continental , deposited at the airport.... flown to Miami (me in my perfect new resort clothes) where we were escorted on to a tiny plane for the final leg from Miami to Great Abaco . Well, when we got there...we were informed that the nuns from the local convent had left a car for us. Nuns? Seems this house actually belonged to a catholic priest from New Jersey. (long story). The car was a rusty old jalopy with a plastic laundry basket hanging by a rope from the roof .. We preceded to drive to the southern tip of the island ...down the Great Abaco Highway...which by the way is  (or was) a dirt road.That would not have been a problem was dry and wasn't raining, but the floorboard was missing in the car. That's right we ate dust the whole way....In a matter of a few hours we had gone from ultimate luxury all the way to tobacco road! The week did turn out to be fun (and funny). It just had a real eye opening beginning. The house was a darling cottage, facing the ocean and surrounded by Casuarina trees that swayed in the wind.(and a few Larrys)..Sometime remind me to tell you about the scary encounter we had there with the shark and the giant stingray.
.........................................Janey, step away from the computer...and pack!........................................


  1. That is a very funny story Janey, had a big laugh.
    That packing must be bad. I can't imagine to do that here, it would drive me crazy. I have a house full to the attic.....

  2. How fun mom! I've never heard that story.
