Now that the game is over and Florida won (in overtime), it's officially called the Florida-Georgia weekend. And it will be for the next year. If the outcome had been different, next year we'd be hosting the Georgia-Florida weekend. See how that works? Despite the two inflatable Bulldogs to one Gator across the street, the Dawgs just couldn't get it done today. Great comeback late in the game but, tomorrow morning, only the Gator will be standing in our neighbor's yard. Despite the fact that somebody has to lose, it's fun to watch this mixed marriage play out every year.
I created this blog for a couple of reasons. In keeping a commitment that I made to myself, I have been walking at least thirty minutes every day since the first of the year. On these walks, I get to stroll through what I think is one of the most charming towns on earth. On every walk, I see at least 10 things that make me smile. I intend to show you a photo of one of those things (person, place, animal, flora, house, event or scene) so that you can enjoy our town right along with me.
The second reason is so that you can keep tabs on my commitment to myself. I pledge to put a photo from the CURRENT day's walk on this blog every day. My goal is to begin running in about another month, so it could get tricky taking the camera along but I'll be thrilled to cross that bridge when I waddle over it. So....... no excuses. I invite you to keep tabs on me and to enjoy my little town of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, Florida right along with me.
I turned 49 today. This is my "before " photo. You'll see me again when I turn 50 - February 1, 2008. I hope you'll enjoy the journey with me.
