There’s not much going on today besides going to the bank to fill out the loan application for Casa Willow, so what to do, what to do? Let’s stare out the window of a moving vehicle and see what’s in Florida.
To begin with we have a POPEYES chicken shack on the side of the highway. Or so we might believe. How sure can we be that the sign isn’t a subliminal message from the Catholic Church what says ‘POPE YES’? I’ll just leave that there for you to consider.
Nextly, we have a pizza and sub shop called Hungry Howie’s. Honestly, how hard would it have been to call it Hungry Hungry Howie’s? As a yute I used to play the board game Hungry Hungry Hippos* by Hasbro (see below). It seems like a no-brainer but maybe I’m just out of touch.
What says ‘retirement village’ more than a golf cart? Well, perhaps the high number of doctors’ offices, funeral homes and physical rehabilitation centers right across the street does but my camera wasn’t pointed that way. This picture describes our new town well. We, too, will buy a goof cart and join the calvary of marauding pensionāri*
But wait! Disaster! My beloved shoes have flipped that last flop!
I bought these shoes in a Nike outlet shop in Edinburgh Mall in mid-southern Indiana over ten years ago. They were handsome shoes and received oodles of compliments from friends and oddballs alike. A side panel on my right shoe gave away and now it just looks dumb. I replaced them with a bargain-priced pair of Sketchers. Woot!
Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them:
Your eyes have seen all that the Lord did in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials and to all his land. 3 With your own eyes you saw those great trials, those signs and great wonders. 4 But to this day the Lord has not given you a mind that understands or eyes that see or ears that hear. 5 Yet the Lord says, “During the forty years that I led you through the wilderness, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet. 6 You ate no bread and drank no wine or other fermented drink. I did this so that you might know that I am the Lord your God.”
