Steve, being retired I don't get up until noon, and sometimes I do it twice.

Don,

There is pain medication in patch form that doesn't upset the stomach. Gunny might do better on that. I hope the time you have left together is long and of the highest quality.

One of the only advantages of having a capuchin is their longevity -- 35-40 years in captivity, only 20 in the wild.

Have ya gotten out in the kayak yet? It would be too windy here for it (if there were water) but at 81 degrees, it's plenty warm enough.

Inland a bit, Di. This is O'Leno SP near Gainesville. High Springs is the nearest town and a sweet place. A little touristy, but a real town with hardware store, beautician, diner and suchlike. This was lunch:

I'm letting the fire die down now. The squirrels have gone to bed and the crickets are louder than the neighbors. Life could hardly get any better. I'll go in smelling like a kippered herring and smiling like a Cheshire Cat!

We again made progress. The bike is off the back of the car - the scooter is out and set up. The lights are on.

Ya need to get the permanent ones so that you can turn them on as you're going down the road.

Whatever keeps the critters away. The little bats flying around at dusk (rats with wings) suggest there may be other critters roaming in the darkness...

Airborne Ropus Lightus are required for Bats.

Either that or anti aircraft batteries.
