Happy Memorial Day!



Happy Memorial Day Monday! We are enjoying time with family and friends during the holiday, and remembering why we celebrate the day! What are you doing to celebrate? We are supposed to go fishing today and Tuesday (start of red snapper season), but.....

Life as we know it is getting ready to change around here, as our "oil forecast" now has oil approximately 10 miles off the Alabama coast. The whole deal has put a huge damper on our spirits and our celebration, but we're going to enjoy the next few days and take them one at a time.

Congratulations BP, you've managed to kill the Gulf of Mexico. We'll be lucky if it's not a dead zone for the next fifty years. I'm pretty disgusted by your behavior and "management" of the situation. Then to find out you are having food trucked into the coast from far far away, rather than dine in and provide much needed business to local restaurants. Seriously, where does your God-complex end? Not only is that insulting, it's quite stupid.

Have a great Memorial Day and stay safe out there!

  1. Having food brought in on a truck? That is madness. Enjoy your day; I'm sorry to hear about this crisis that does not seem to end. Hugs.

  2. My boyfriend is from Destin, FL and it seems like everything and everyone on the Gulf coast is just bracing for it to hit the shores. What a disaster. :(

  3. Ugh, I agree with everything you said. So sorry for you & your neighbors! I used to live in the Mobile area, still have family in the Mobile area, visit the Gulf Coast at least annually...It is just excruciating.

    Hope you are able to relax & enjoy your day, sweetie!
