Goodbye Margie and Roger

Florida Keys  (high 80, low 70)

Margie and Roger left this morning, and they took Buddy and Annie with them!

It always amazes me how fast I can get attached to other peoples dogs.

Good-bye tiny little Buddy.


He has a tooth missing, so he has a little problem with his tongue. I think it makes him look distinguished. Smile  Margie and Roger rescued him from a shelter.  He had been a breeder in a puppy mill.  Fortunately for him, he’s got a great home  now, and is very much loved.  The picture doesn’t show how tiny he is.  He’s only about 3 pounds.

Here is sweet little Annie.  She’s definitely a Mama’s girl.  I’m not sure how much she weighs, but is quite a bit bigger than Buddy.  Baxter weighs more than the both of them put together, I’m sure.


Margie and Roger wanted to try kayaking, but the winds had been blowing so strong most of the time, that we didn’t get out until last night.  It was just before sunset, but the tide was running strong, making it  a little difficult to learn to kayak.

Margie and Roger did great though.  We put in under the beach area by the lower bridge at the park.

A very rare picture of Al and I kayaking together!

We made it a short kayak trip.  We decided we’d rather spend time with Margie and Roger.   We can have a sunset paddle anytime.  We grabbed our happy hour drinks and walked over to the marina.

Al went in for a Conch, but slid into the water…hence, the wet butt!

Annie and Buddy came along in their stroller.

Margie and I have the exact same camera…and both of us were clicking away!

Sunset in Paradise.  This is the campsite I’d like to have!
