We’re returning from a 2500 mile road trip from Indiana to Orlando and St. Pete Beach, Florida and we have a great many questions…
What are those volleyball size balls hanging on the overhead wires above the interstate? Af first I thought they were some type of float since the wires ran above a small body of water. Later, however, we saw them on the power lines above dry land. What gives?
What does one do with 3 lbs. of shelled Georgia pecans? I know, I know. I just got caught up in the Tourist Moment. <sigh>
What causes a “red tide”? For you land lubbers, this is where fish and other marine life dies in mass quantities and comes up on the beach in the form of a red murky water. Apparently, St. Pete Beach area has had this smelly phenomenon for about a week now and no one could tell us what it was caused from.
Why in the world does Georgia use a different font on their interstate signs? They’re using what appears to be a narrow version of Ariel or other simple sans-serif font. We need consistency, I tells ya, consistency.
In other MPSIMS news, we’ve had huge delays caused by the inability of motorists to properly handle their oversize SUV’s hauling mega-motorhomes. Three major crashes on the road and all three were single-vehicle accidents. We’ve had excellent accomodations and food. We had the best grouper sandwich in the world at St. Pete Beach. Yum! I got a tiny sunburn on my forehead at the beach. Disney and Sea World were wonderful, as always. We’re in Nashville tonight and will be home tomorrow. Yea!
