... I happily complied.

The next photo is of me with an artillery shell from the USS Alabama. My caption needs a bit of explanation, though. I DO own a WWII practice shell that's about 20" tall. I call it my "bullet," and bought it at a yard sale some years ago. So . . . this bullet is bigger than mine.

Larry has been craving some vegetables, so we went to Kitty's Kafe for lunch. Great place! Larry bought me a T-Shirt that says ...

... the wildest looking drink EVER, called a "Painkiller." It had rum and pineapple, and I don't know what else - and it SMOKED. Oh, wow, did I wish I could have one! Ali, I did try to be mean and call you and tell you where we were, but couldn't get a signal. MEAN Mommy!

... into his enclosure to get a photo of his face! The dinosaurs are new. But there's a good, strong fence to protect the zoo patrons from these menacing monsters.

After the zoo, we went to Souvenir City. Souvenir City has been in continuous operation since 1956, and I remember it "way back when." About all you could get there when I was a child was swim rings, coconuts carved into pirates or monkeys, ...

Expect the Unexpected

... right? We had been faithful all Feast and here we were stuck without a vehicle, barely able to get it back to the shop. Turns out it needed a new alternator as well, which brings us to our current state. We have had no choice but to stay two extra nights, and may be needing to stay an additional night to get our car up to standards.

Did I mention we were pretty much car-less all Feast? We had to ride with my in-laws anywhere we needed or wanted to ...
