Spending a few days at Moira’s in Tampa before heading to Venice. Immediately upon arrival, I was given a task only a man can handle. A snake had taken up residence on the threshold between the dining area and patio and it was my task to persuade it to move on or to fight it to the death . After donning my fang-proof leggings, extra thick gloves and improvised snake stick, I battled it for over an hour. In the end, the dominance of man over beast was proven once again. It hightailed out the door and found cover among the bushes. Actually, I used one of those alignment sticks to nudge it out the door in just a few seconds but I had you goin’ didn’t I?
Had dinner with Moira, Kris Tamulis, Sarah Kemp and Danielle Downey at the Lucky Dill Deli in Palm Harbor last night. Good food and interesting conversation. Sarah had us rolling with a tale of her latest escapade but that’s all I’m going to say. It’s in the vault.
Found a rental house on the course for 2nd stage Q-school. One bed open if anyone is interested. No loons, derelicts or degenerates need apply. Is anyone left? Starts Friday.
Had a little brake work done right down the street at Just Brakes. The rear wheel cylinders had to be replaced but were under warranty. Had them done back in ‘08. $75 out the door which was nice. I still wasn’t done with my car though. Replaced the air and cabin filter myself. The later was especially filthy. Do you even know if your car has one?
Stopped at the University Mall to use my 40% off coupon at Old Navy. Passed a kiosk hawking bling worthy of Mr. T. One guy was buying a gold chain with a saucer-sized medallion attached. No way that could be the genuine article. It looked good on him though.
Heard they’re filming a Bollywood production in Dublin. One caddie had a brush with greatness when the lead actress came into the Temple Bar for nachos and a pint and was a mere fifteen feet away.
Then there was this:
Wendy’s remakes its 42-year-old hamburger – Just don’t touch the chili.
