Bang The Drum All Day

When Todd Rundgren wrote the words ...."I don't want to work, I  want to bang the drum all day", he must have met the gentleman above standing next to the guy with the hat.  Ha ha.

The Bahama's have been described by poets so I will not try.

We had a blast.  The shaky nature of all the digital photos will attest to that.  Too many Yellow Birds.

I have some 35mm film I took to Sams club today that I hope will have a few good pictures .

Thank you Price Line!  The rooms we had at Hyatt before leaving and then at the Raddison when we returned were knock down fabulous with breath taking views of Miami.

I have some wonderful experiences to share with you guys. We stumbled upon the Art Deco Festival in South Beach on Friday much to my delight.  We rode around on the Metro Mover, we rode a bus, we met character after character everywhere we went. 

We flew home via Detroit...two hours late.  Sat on the run way while they de-iced the plane.  It was enough to make one cry.

I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day.

Hi Mary ~ Welcome home. I wanna say "woohoo, you're back" but I'm sure it's bittersweet. I'm looking forward to pictures! Priceline ROCKS. And I didn't just come back from vacation but that Todd Rundgren song is my daily motto! :P

I really can't wait to see the pictures and hear more about the trip ... also really curious about the priceline deal ... as I've hesitated so often when thinking of using them. Welcome back to the real world of work and family life and everything else.

I use to "Bang the drum" now, I've decided that Day Dreaming about relaxing tropical places is better. Glad you had such a great time. Regards, Bill.
