10 DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS

What do you do on a Friday night when you have no cable or internet? You hop on your bike and go look at the Christmas lights. It was nice weather, just needed sleeves. I took off in our neighborhood to see the Christmas lights. As I was riding along, I heard music and laughter. It sounded like a party, complete with lots of lights. I was still a block away, but it was loud, and sounded like they were having a great time. As I approached the intersection, about 30 decorated bicycles started down the street toward me, from this house. Most were wearing some sort of Christmas costume and the bikes were glowing with colored Christmas lights. I fell in behind them and followed for several blocks. They were having a great time in their own little parade.
I turned around and headed downtown to go tourist watching. I usually stop at the Flying Monkey Saloon and get a frozen White Russian. Tonight was no different. This was my first stop! Yum!
The lighted boat parade was tonight. I saw the very tail end of it. These two boats were very impressive.
Here is another decorated house I saw on the way home. Very shiny.
Christmas is just around the corner. As usual, I've waited until the last minute to do my Christmas shopping. It never feels like Christmas when the temperatures are in the 70's. Luckily, this year, we've had a cooler week. But, I hear it's suppose to be back in the 80's next week. However, that is one of the things I love about living here... it doesn't get cold enough to wear a coat!!!

  1. BONJOUR ! ici la Belgique sous la pluie et la neige mais je te souhaite un joyeux Noel au soleil de Floride . j'ai commencé la construction d'un Paradox depuis 1 mois et je regarde beaucoup ton blog très sympa !! et je regarde un peu ta vie au USA !! TARDIS est très beau et ma donné envie d'en construire un ! Très dommage que tu ne l'ai pas gardé !!! Le nouveau propriétaire n'a plus l'air de naviguer (Scout)! Il préfère maintenant les avions ?! Tu pourrais lui racheter ton bateau si tu es triste de lui avoir vendu ? Mais la vie continue et tu es passé sans doute à autre chose ! j'aurais quelques petite question à te poser sur la construction plus tard si évidement cela ne te dérange pas ! Je pense bien à toi, amicalement, Stéphane.
