A Few Clearwater Notes

My wife and I are back home after a nice trip to Clearwater Beach, FL.  And yes – as we were leaving the temperature in Clearwater got back to being up to almost 80 degrees. Ah well …

We had a great meal at a place called Crabby Bill’s. In fact, as we were seated, Crabby Bill’s was being featured in a program on the Food Network.  After some broiled seafood and crab cakes, we left happy and satisfied customers.

I learned first-hand that you do not screw with pelicans. This guy was not nearly as friendly to me as I was to him.
Unfortunately, the one thing sub-par thing about the trip was the educational conference I attended. Outside of some interesting workshops on video gaming addiction and social networking , the rest were rather boring . But at least the trip was a killer!

We watched the sunset on the gulf from a pier, which was very nice despite the wind. Traditional sunset pictures omitted here.

It is back to work tomorrow. I think that I could get used to these two-day work weeks rather easily.

With my wife and son leaving on a snow skiing trip for the weekend, I should have some free time on my hands. The poker gods may be calling …

I might be colder in Illinois, but it's always nice to be home. Thx for the photos.

Sounds like a conference set up just to attract those from colder climes. Interesting subjects covered. It made me quite curious about your job; what do you do for a living?

I could really use some warm weather myself. Granted, we've had a mild winter with virtually no snow, but some warmth would be most welcome.

Thanks for the pics!
