Every state has an official bird, tree, etc. Well if every state had an official noise, Florida’s would be a rattling buzz with random clinks. Because, everyone is busy doing something. Even if they seem to be laying around in their lounge chairs soaking up sun, somehow, they have lots to do and even more to tell you that they already did today. Mostly, the events are social, “we met our friends for coffee” “we are going to the museum with our friends from the RV park that we stayed in last year” plus all the usual RV entertainment: cards, bingo, crafts, golf excursions and pot lucks (oh, and don’t forget that it’s happy hour almost any hour). I am a self proclaimed introverted urbanite, so, it’s not entirely natural for me to keep up. If my iphone had a CRAM Calendar app, I’d use it to try and cram all the things in a day that we try to do. It could be an App that you would list all the things that you want to do today along with all the things you have got to get done today, hit a button and the App would shedjule it all for you. And if you like the layout of the day, you could hit the AGREED button and your phone could make the Florida Rattling Buzz with Random Clinks noise. Naturally, it would blurt out the noise of whatever state you have decided to cram your day in.

Honestly, we’ve got it bad. Someone should be paying us. I mean, come on, this is work. We show up at least 5 days a week, we work well with others, we face up to our mistakes, we come through in a crisis, we are appropriately dressed, we use proper etiquette and most importantly… the job gets done. Job one, chasing birds. Granted, Patrick and I simply manage the operation, Luna is the talent here. Okay, okay, Patrick manages the operation. I’m more of an office…(beach)chair…with my Over-Board water proof iphone in hand to document, comment and support the big cheese. You spell out an operation like this on paper, and I’m thinking it should draw something somewhere in the six digits. Luna has her needs.
