Along the Way
I’ve really been thinking a lot about palms since we went to the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden yesterday. Maybe too much.
But think about it. Palm leaves resemble hands. They have a central ‘palms’ and ‘fingers’. Lot’s of fingers.
I’ve been thinking about chickens too. I’m going to quit hunting chickens and start hunting ibis. The ibis symbolizes great wisdom and the ability to work magic. They were symbols of good luck and to wear an ibis feather would bring good fortune.
Lastly, most of you are NOT going to get a Christmas card from us this year. It’s not that you’ve been naughty. It’s simply Cuba is closer than Target, Walmart and Costco. We’ve been hitting up every store in Key West and Stock Island we can since we got here to look for Christmas cards that I wouldn’t be ashamed to send. After about six stores we’ve scored a box of 10 and a couple of individual cards.
A very simple, very Merry Christmas to the rest of you!
