Heading to Florida

Hi Guys. If anyone is in the central part of Florida and would like to offer me safe haven from dear old mom, I would love the opportunity to sit and knit at your place. Lunch will be on me! I may need to escape her smothering...I mean mothering...for an evening or two as I have a hotel voucher I can use with the Choice Hotels. If that's the case and you would like to escape to a place to knit and just relax, send me an email and I'll give you my dates. We can get some wine and cheese and some other goodies and just kick back, knit, and get a bit drunk. I will have a couple projects with me that are safe enough for that kind of knitting...easily torn out.

Hope someone surfaces. I'm sure it would be a great time.

Onward to hot, hazy, humid weather that is central Florida. The beaches are calling me as some special other places I'm far too polite to mention in here. ;)

I'm not in Florida, but if you change your picture to a guy in plaid shorts, argyle socks and dress shoes we'll know you've been assimilated and lost forever.

Despite being in the region with your mom, I hope you have a great time. And do hope you enjoy some of the time with her...even if only in small doses.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Hi Joe...Mom's okay, but I spend a lot of time sitting around. She enjoys the company and I enjoy chauffeuring her around. I have some extracurricular plans for a few of the days down here, so I will have a good time. I will be at the beach and at a camp with friends as well. I brought my knitting along for the hours at Mom's house when we aren't playing Scrabble. Thankfully I enjoy both.

Some of us might like to hear about the impolite places to visit in central Florida. I was thinking that if you replaced the verb 'knit' with another well-chosen verb, this could be posted on Craigslist.
Hope your visit is enjoyable - in part if not in whole.

Hey Allan. I am well versed in the impolite places to visit here in central FL. Hit me up in an email and I'll be happy to share.

Thanks for the invitation.
Central FL is kinda close (>1000 miles). Unfortunately I only get two weeks off from work each year, and they pick the weeks (Christmas to New Years, and the week of the 4th of July).
Hot and Humid is right. Cotton is your friend, or any clothing with a "wicking" quality.

Have a great trip.
Perhaps we can meet up some other time.

Clothing? ;)

Now, Mark...In your retirement, you are taking on the characteristics of Cousin Violet...

"Weekend? What is a weekend?!" ;-)

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

I was always fond of Aunt Violet. ;)
