Henry Rollins!!

He's intense, he's intellectual, he's inquisitive, he's angry, he's out there, he's provocative, he's tattooed, and gosh darn it, he's HOT!!

Tony (my son) and I went to see Henry Rollins do his "Provoked" show tonight at The Theatre in West Palm Beach. It was a very small venue so I got to see Henry up close. It was an awesome show.

My First KAL

After two and a half years of knitting, I've finally joined a knit-a-long. 10 or more of the other Betties have also joined to make a Clapotis. It's nice to be knitting something with other people in my knitting group so we can all see each others progress!! I'm using Jamaica yarn by Katia. Here's what I've knit so far ...

Where Does the Thyme Go?

A friend sent me an email nudging me to post something on my blog. Little did I realize, it's been THREE MONTHS since I posted anything!

Well, I've been very busy. I finished a very hard Accounting class with a B+, so I'm one class closer to my degree!! The bad news is that I'll only be able to take one more class between now and March of 2008. My job has a limit to the amount they'll cover and I'm almost there. At least in the course of a year I'll have managed to get through six classes. By this time next year I'll be very close to being done. My son also wants to take some college courses which I'm very excited about.

I spent a weekend in the keys with my boyfriend, his son, his nephew and his brother in July. We went rafting behind Robbie's boat and he and his brother did everything they could (like going REALLY fast) to get me to fall off the raft. They wanted to see how long I'd be able to hold on. Mean, right? Well, I managed to hold on long enough to really impress them without getting hurt. Robbie ended up hurting his arm. See how Karma works?

We went to Robbie's Marina and fed the tarpon and ate dinner at Island Fish Company:

Also in July we took Robbie's kids up to Orlando for the weekend. Unfortunately it rained really hard almost the entire time so we weren't able to go to any of the parks. We decided to drive to Cocoa Beach and hit Ron Jon Surf Shop. Unfortunately while trying to turn around in a tight space, Robbie "dented" the new truck he had just purchased ... two days before.
A couple of weeks ago we took a road trip to Bethany Beach, Delaware. One of our first stops was at South of the Border where I was in hysterics when Robbie put on these glasses. Ha Ha Ha!!!!
I was also very excited to take my picture with Favio. So excited in fact that I put my purse on the floor to pose and then forgot about it. I didn't realize until we were about an hour down the road. We had to turn back (Robbie WAS NOT happy) and thankfully someone had gotten it and saved it for me!!
We went to Oriental, NC where I almost stepped on this snake in the woods, posed with this fantastic horse made out of driftwood, rode a ferry to the Outer Banks of NC and saw wild ponies and beautiful landscapes in Beaufort.

Arrived in Bethany Beach, Delaware, where
I met Robbie's relatives. This is his niece's
daughter, Naya ... Is she cute, or what?!
We went crabbing, caught lots of crabs and
ate them:
We went to Ocean City, Maryland before we
headed back home.

AND I knit a Mason Dixon ballband dishcloth!!!!
