Work....

Breakfast in Minneapolis on the trip down to Florida....
Bloody Marys and blueberry muffins. Yumm!
The back view from our hotel....
Fort Myers Beach, Florida....
The Gulf of Mexico....
Warm white sand....
Mike didn't believe that the natives have better tans....
No question about it.... It was hard work. We left at 7 a.m. on Thursday and I got back at midnight last night. It was 85 F when I boarded the plane in Fort Myers and 35 F when I got off in Waterloo. Where would I rather be?
It's good to be back.
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!

Holy cow! You are so white it's almost a shade of blue.


Doesn't look like you're getting ready for the Wed night TT's but probably having more fun.

See you soon.

The key to your successful trip was no teenagers!
Glad you survived the ordeal.
I take it your commercial carrier showed up at the gate on the way back! :^)

all I can say is that I love the fact that your facial expressions don't change with the climate =)

I agree a.lo! If you look at every other "Kerkovian" picture taken by Blue, his expression is always the same! No smile...nothing! I also wonder if he's actually sitting in a lawn chair in the warehouse at work while taking those pictures, just with different backdrops!!

You should really repost that last picture a few more times...like for the next few weeks!!! Maybe even make it your header??!!

a.lo, anon....

it's the nerve damage that won't allow me to smile.

i like the lawnchair in the warehouse thing. i may try that later this morning after i get back from drug training at the hospital.

i'll post that pic as often as you like, but in all honesty, i don't think mike's all that cute. whatever trips your trigger, i guess.

The photos of frivolity are really just an elaborate ruse. Team Discovery went to Mallorca in the spring, CSC had Solvang and Father of Jackal has his secret Florida training ground. You guys out there better look out!
