Ice Breaking Creek Monsters

I let the dogs out early this morning. It was very dark and very cold. A few moments later I rolled the garbage out to the curb and I could hear many little feet breaking the ice in our creek. When the dogs came back in all of their paws were dry. I wonder who was ice breaking in our creek.

My assistant came in the office this morning and asked if I ran into any black guys this morning. I was confused and thought she was setting up a joke. She actually was asking if I ran into any black ice. I have a hard time with a Chicago accent sometimes.

On the way to work a woman was walking down the sidewalk swinging her arms wildly. I actually thought she might slap my Jeep.

 Michael and Terry plan on visiting us in May. I was thinking how much I would like for them to experience Southport and I got to thinking. I must have spent a total of three weeks down there this summer and not a friend to show for it. People down there are very stand offish.

On the other hand folks in St Croix are very friendly. I could actually stay more occupied with friends and acquaintances on that island than I could in Southport.  

Southport is a quaint fishing village reminiscent of some New England coastal town. Visit for the ambiance and not for the people you’ll meet.

St Croix is quintessential Caribbean and has friendly people.

Were you already at work when you posted this at 7:11 am or is someone in a time warp?

I wonder if Michael and Terry will fall in love with your home the way you've fallen in love with theirs.

The way you describe Southport reminds me of Bayfield, WI. It is a beautiful place and works its way into your heart, but the people there aren't overly friendly either. "Snobbish," I'd say. Bring good friends with you when you go.
