I awoke to find Ray out of the house and Denise busy working the phones trying her best to help find Margo, her son’s dog that had gone missing. She was calling vets, animal shelters and anyone else in the Jacksonville area who might be able to help locate Margo. It reminded me of when I was a kid and Blacky the rabbit, my only pet, ran off and we tried all we could to find her. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find her as she probably disappeared to the woods right next to our house making her a little difficult to track.
I didn’t have a long ride ahead of me, and so hung around at Ray & Denise’s until around noon as I was waiting for him to get back. I wanted to thank him for the hospitality and to get the all important picture!
I was heading to Noelle’s place. I’d met heron my way across the Everglades when she’d invited me to the Everglades party I went to. We’d hit it off and so after parting ways we’d arranged to meet up when I got up to Pompano. The ride up was along A1A and again during the ride I found myself stopping to sit on the beach and read on my Kindle. Kindles are wonderful things and the ability to carry all the books you’re wanting to read on something that weighs the same as a normal paperback is phenomenal.
After relaxing at Noelle’s place, I headed north to meet her at a work thing up in Boca Raton. A lady from her office called Cindy was changing departments and so there was going to be a happy hour and then a dinner. It was a really fun evening and my first work dinner since leaving Korea. The biggest difference I noticed between them being that in Korea they eat then drink then drink some more as dinners are usually at about 5pm. That and how much more fun work dinners are when you can interact with everyone!
