THE AGE OF AQUARIUM

Well Dorothy, we're not in Kansas (Michigan) anymore. We arrived back home to face 87 degree Fall weather. Not a single leaf has changed color and there is no squash of any kind in the grocery store. The land of 'perpetual summer', South Florida, is open for business once again. The above mural, for instance, would seem so out of place in the North. Yet here, in sunny Fort Lauderdale, it is quite common place. I even saw some kids trying to feed the fish.

  2. 87 degrees and no colorful leaves? I don't envy you. I'm loving the cool fall weather, but check with me in December when I get a taste of my first Pennsylvania winter. :)

  4. I love murals like this, and enjoy doing them as well, whenever I have the chance, which unfortunately isn't often!

  6. In the words of Dorothy Gail, 'there's no place like home'. I would imagine you'll be particularly pleased to be viewing this wall in January when you've got that balmy air and we've got blizzards.

  8. Welcome back home, B Sq. I know the heat will take getting used to again. But think of all the murals you get to look at.

    Did you see the kids trying to feed the fish when you were trying to catch them? :-)

    Nice to have you back!

  13. With a bit of practice, you could take this type of mural painting back to Michigan next year. Just think of the fun you'd have as they haul you away for mental evaluation...last heard yelling, "But they paint buildings with big cartoon fish like this all the time in Florida."

    Welcome home Mr.B SQUARE!!

  17. Glad you're home safe. That's a very nice mural, it's cheerful and bright. Cute that children want to feed the fish, hope their parents explain a few things about life on earth...

  19. Maybe the thing to do would be to follow the 65 degree isotherm south. Or the 70 one.

  20. Welcome to South Florida B2!
    Oh yeah, no pumpkins, no yellow, red or orange leaves. Well you can sit and pray for the temps to drop to what...... 60 so you can crank out some hot cocoa??? On the other hand, you have the most wonderful winters and never have to dread snow, ice or in our case in Bama, power outages. WE look forward to your great shots from home.

  21. 87°? EW! But soon you'll be smiling and pointing your finger at me...and laughing about my tales of snow.

    Hahaha! You sound surprised that some kids were trying to feed the fish. I guess the Florida kids or the fish painted or murals ain't the way you remembered them, eh?

    Welcome back online, B Squared!

    Hope you had an enjoyable drive home.

  28. Glad you made it back safely. It was quite a treat getting your Michigan reports over the summer. All of us who you have left behind will be down for a right friendly visit in January or February so get out the aero mattress. We'll keep you grounded with our daily reports from the real world.
