I came home after working all day, walked the dog, changed clothes and popped open a cold one, and I’m so glad to just chill out before I start supper. It was a busy day, and sometimes people just came in to look around and warm up. I work tomorrow and will then be off two days.
Before I forget, I want to mention that comments to my blog appear here on the blog itself, and also come to me in an email. Sometimes folks have questions, or I want to respond to their comments, and I REPLY to the email. I am beginning to doubt that these replies ever reach the intended person, or anyone for that matter. I know several people have asked about RV parks in this area, and I have responded that the nearest one is River’s End on Tybee Island, about 5 miles from the Fort. I know this park comes up online with a Google search, and have no doubt they are in the major directories. I will be working here until the end of February, at which time I will travel west to Sacramento, and would love to visit with anyone passing through this area.
No matter what the weather forecasters predicted, it is cold today with a bitter wind blowing. I heard a life-long Savannah resident tell someone that due to the high humidity it feels colder than it is, plus when you add the wind factor it’s downright uncomfortable. I chuckle to myself because I always thought it was a joke when Sacramentans said to me “Oh, but it’s a dry heat.” Maybe there is something to that, although I will never really admit it, but it is possible that a dry heat isn’t as hot, and a dry cold isn’t as cold, as the reverse. (Don’t tell any Sacramentans that I’m related to, but I would give anything to spend a day in a dry heat right now.)
When I walked Lady this evening we took a path that is close to the river, as we usually do. At the same time we were there a huge container ship came alongside us on its way out to sea. We stopped for a few minutes, me admiring the beautiful grace of such a ship, but when I was ready to leave Lady wouldn’t move. She watched the ship intently until it was nearly out of sight. I wonder what was going through her mind.
