It hit 80 today! Didn't swim, because the purple flag is up (meaning dangerous marine life...stingrays and the such) but did watch others risking it while I lunched at the Hilton's outdoor restaurant next door to my resort.
Since this is my first winter experience in the Panhandle, I don't know if the missing crowds I saw yesterday signals that spring breakers, for the most part, are gone now or if we have one more week of them. I'll find out when I venture out today. But it sure is nice to have the place to myself again.
Witness the 2PM lunch I had at Hammerhead's in Baytowne Wharf yesterday. Yep, the guy still sang his Jimmy Buffet and other songs from my generation for about six of us. What a nice relaxing lunch it was!

I was born a reader. My first real "grown-up" book came from a school book fair when I was in the fourth grade -- Little Women. I still have it, 58 years later. As I became acquainted with the March girls, I came to identify with one more than the others. It certainly wasn't shy, timid Beth or proper Meg. Amy's love of art resonated with me, but at last, because she loved literature and writing and because of her independent nature -- although often awkward and outspoken -- it was decidedly Jo.
