A wonderful story in our Florida Today newspaper about the Caribbean Conservation Corporation's 2009 Sea Turtle Calendar. Reporter Maria Sonnenberg had me at the first sentence: "An exquisitely rendered family album, the Caribbean Conservation Corporation’s 2009 sea turtle calendar looks at the marine reptiles with affection and pride." We, of course, are justifiably proud because friends Jim Angy and Blair Witherington have photos in the calendar. Order yours from the CCC on-line gift shop or pick it up at the Barrier Island Center. And don't forget the Barrier Island Bash December 7. While there, you can get started on your holiday shopping in their delightful gift shop or adopt a sea turtle for that special someone! This photo is one of Jim's.
A friend sent her reaction to the oyster mat posting, and I'm still laughing. In her words: "I noticed all the items for oyster mat workshops. This is a true story; I'm not making this up! When I moved here 5 years ago, I signed up for one of these workshops. I swear I thought it was an arts and crafts project. I was hoping to make at least 4 to use on the dining room table!"
I'm dining with good friends at their home tomorrow, as I have done for many years. I'll be giving thanks for family, friends, and critters, those with us now and those who have gone on to their heavenly rewards. I hope your day is filled with whatever makes you happy.
