I would have a drink here. Bonus points if I could dress like that nautical bartender. 🙂
I think I NEED a drink there — my husband is sitting on the couch next to me trying to assemble a dashboard camera for his car — you know, in case a meteor lands in L.A.
Haha. I just did a classic spit-take. Nicely done, Vickie, nicely done.
I think this would still work today. Very cool.
I love these architectural renderings! One day I’m going to blow them up and display them.
I was thinking the same thing. They’d be wonderful if they were blown up and framed.
I was wondering about that, are you still thinking of a new place to roost?
I am. In fact, I’m going to Vero Beach, Florida tomorrow. I’m going to look at real estate and see how I feel about it. My father’s side of the family is deeply entrenched in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton – unfortunately that would be the draw back of moving down there. They are quite a group of characters, let me tell ya, and I shudder to think that I would be even a 3 hour drive away! Haha! I do love the Atlantic ocean and the weather would be a nice change of pace for me… I really don’t know, Vickie. I’m just in a stupor. Maybe it’s because I put so much weight on this decision. Maybe I need to ease up?
I’ll be checking in as I’m able during the coming week.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend…
Where are your closest friends? (Your kids?) Although, I think you’re outgoing and would make the effort wherever you move to become integrated into the community. Florida is beautiful and warm and those beaches! Have you ever visited Charleston, SC? It’s got the architecture… and it’s quite a bit further from Boca 😉 Enjoy yourself, this is the best kind of adventure, finding your nest. And, if you feel that old stupor coming on, go lie on the beach (don’t forget your sunscreen) and take a nap. I’m looking forward to hearing your impressions! Love, V
Telepathy truly exists – The Dandy visits Charleston SC this early summer as part of a railway journey around your The East…
Stunning image! Never built?
I’d have a soda water highball if ever I were able to…
The Perfumed Dandy
Never built, it was designed for the airport… If you’ve never been to our East Coast you’re in for a treat. I’m tempted to meet your train and say hello!
Well as a not so wise gentleman once said ‘I can resist everything except temptation’!
I’m with Oscar 😉
I’m on my way now. Put in my drink order for three gin & tonics. Thanks!
