Odds and Ends

Time once more for a little bit of this and a little bit of that.


I recently played at a different golf course.  On the tee box for one hole there were more crickets than I have ever seen at one location.  Just one hole.  Thousands.  I heard that they are always there.


The club house at Pelican Bay, one of the biggest and oldest communities in North Naples.
They are tearing it down to replace it with a bigger, two story clubhouse costing $18 million.


On a side street in Everglades City, I came across a bus for Outward Bound and a sign telling us that this is the site of the North Carolina Outward Bound program.  I did an Outward Bound program
 in Colorado more than 20 years ago.  No idea about this one.


Road signs on Sanibel point out the distances to some locations, mostly in Indiana.


The Gulf Shore Play House performed Henrik Ibsen's Enemy of the People, a play about a man protesting a city's dangerously bad water supply.  Eerie similarities to Flint, Michigan.


A bloodmobile is parked in front of a movie theater.  A familiar tall shadow is in the forefront.


And, inside the theater, the table is set for a kids' party.

There is lots to admire in that area. Well maybe except for the crickets.

Ibsen's quite timely, and those crickets are big!

The bloodmobile's painted differently than the ones that operate here, but the purpose of course is the same.

That's quite an amalgamation of this and that! How do you file your photos so you keep track of everything? Date? Subject? Love those directional signs on Sanibel!

I've always thought it would be fun to have a direction sign to all the places I would like to go to or have been to. That is a lot of crickets, Jack!

The crickets must have something they like at the second hole. Interesting collection of photos.

Crickets?!?! I'd think some of the local birds would have caught on to that banquet.
