It's a bit of a roodie doodie word for lady parts

Well, I`ve learned the name of those birds today!!! I just realised I didn't know it when you posted it...….we always just called them herons.....Wow what a great day. No crowds. And the Egret. I'm glad the mother caught the little boy. Let's leave the birds alone.
A very warm back Matt........Ahhh I missed the start
I am back for the ride
Rob and I shall be sharing your trip and pretending we are there in spirit
In good news we have just booked next years stay and flights!
Hugs to you both! and Happy Birthday I think I missed them both and Tom's big 60th!
I only like cinnamon in curries or with buns! We did try that cinnamon whisky on a previous trip but neither of us liked it very much.....but I don’t like whisky anyway. It does seem to be very popular.......I noticed your pic with the cinnamon whiskey in it, I have tried to buy a bottle of that for a few years now. I like cinnamon candies and cinnamon whiskey is a guilty pleasure.....ha, I even offered one of the guys $500 cash to let me have a bottle.........nope can’t do it he said, I told him come on I’ll drink the whiskey and put the bottle in one of our Harry Potter cabinets.....lol.......nope!
Oh the coconut pineapple was delicious yes!!! MS had that sent up for us, she is so kind!
LB sent up some fabulous strawberries at SF, such a wonderful fellow! We did really enjoy SF!
That sounds really interesting. Both DH and I have our M for motorcycle certification and enjoy the feeling we get from that. I have always been intrigued by your rental car choices as they would not be ours.We started doing it years ago when Tom and I used to drive Raleigh cars on a weekend for fun......I miss those days!!!
It teaches you how to properly control a car in different circumstances, for example you spend time on the skid track and it teaches you properly how to deal with it. There’s other things too, but that’s the basics of it. It’s over and above your regular driving license that anyone gets. A driving test over here teaches you the basics.
Some folks today think it lowers your car insurance if you have one, we haven’t noticed anything, but thats not why we do it. We quite like a morning banging around in cars like that.
So for us it’s a fun thing to do, and that’s about it. I don’t know many folks who have one apart from a few. It’s not something that’s a necessity.
For us, we love driving, and in America it’s fun for us, the roads are different and driving is something we enjoy anyway. And being honest Tom usually drives at night if we are driving to a restaurant......but other than that, we share the driving.
lol.....it`s funny as motorbikes is one mode of fun we`d never entertain.....and it always amazes us in America the amount of people who drive them without helmets on....it`s the law in this country you have to wear them. The image of seeing these guys drive them in shorts and tees with flip flops and no helmet!!!! Jeremy Clarkson branded them mobile organ donors........but it`s scary to see that.That sounds really interesting. Both DH and I have our M for motorcycle certification and enjoy the feeling we get from that. I have always been intrigued by your rental car choices as they would not be ours.
In a previous life I owned 5 1967 Corvettes and my favorite newer model. I got divorced and had no garage but cash works.
Anyway I know so little about Europe models I didn’t know why you would choose them over a US Muscle Car...
Thank you for taking the time to explain Carole.....
It is beautiful isn't it!! Yes, the light is somehow twinkly and shimmery, even during the day which is unusual......and we never see anything like that over here, even on our best days!!!!I love the Florida sky! There's a certain quality of light that I was associate with it. Even though we're only about 6 hours up the coast, it still looks different.
Shrimp and grits are a HUGE favorite where I live. I grew up eating grits and love them. It's definitely a regional thing. Real quality slow cooked grits are actually quite creamy and smooth...usually with tons of butter and cream!
We`ve always been so lucky meeting Disers, everyone we`ve met has been lovely and we still keep in touch with most. Some have become very good friends. So, yes this was a lovely meet up.....Enjoying as always!
I love the pictures of DA and KA during the HHN. Nice time to get pictures.
IOA looks like very low crowds this day. We love Spider-Man. I have never tried Dr. Doom. Is it like ToT? I probably would like it.
How nice to spend an afternoon with a fellow Diser!
