Bloviating Zeppelin: On Holiday

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

On Holiday

Dearest Readers:

I sit now at a small table on the top floor of a hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The sun is about to set and, from the veranda, I can hear the foghorn.  

I customarily live in a PC world but write this from a MacBook Pro laptop -- one my wife purchased for me earlier this year.  I'm still not facile, in any way, on this thing because I use it so rarely at this point.  I have a PC at work and at home; the MacBook has been reserved for trips and so-called special occasions.  My wife "inherited" my 17" HP Pavilion zd8000 laptop; I now have the MacBook for my portable needs.  I can still barely make it work.  I'm suspecting I'll have to take some classes at my local Apple Store.  I purchased the "Teach Yourself Visually MacBook" book, the "Rough Guide to Macs & 10.5 Leopard."  It still hasn't sunk in.  Yes, I really am that thick.

In any event, my point: I'm away from easy posting but I've backed up a number of drafts so that I am "not gone," so to speak.  I did this in case I couldn't figure out how to post new photographs.  But that is immaterial because, in my rush to pack, I only included my smallest camera -- you know, the one with the DEAD BATTERIES.

I am literally on holiday from Thursday, May 21st to Wednesday, May 27th.

And May 27th is the day my father's house is turned over to its new owners.

But that's another topic entirely.

A topic I'm seeking to escape for a few days.

Have a well deserved rest, Mr. Z!

Time is of the essence and is always best spent with those you love.

I love the California coast. It's gorgeous, BZ. Have you ever been to Morrow Bay? If not, Google it in pictures. That rock out in the bay is amazing. I lived there for about six months.

Enjoy your break! :)

Gayle, when I was in a stressful business, I used to say "I wish I was selling hotdogs on the beach at Morrow Bay right now..."!

A Jacksonian.."Mr Z" Hey, that's my hubby!! (But BZ can use that, too, of course ::)), being a huge fan of BZ myself!

BZ...I'm glad you're away and relaxing and enjoying the beauty. Have a wonderful weekend. Glad you're keeping in touch, anyway!

Enjoy the break, the scenery, and the wife.

Pick your own order.

And Morro Bay is, indeed, beautiful. In another life I taught canoeing to Girl Scouts on the back water flats.

If you haven't already, use Safari to download Mozilla Firefox. It will handle the web much better on that Mac. Enjoy the vacation, read my blog!

Enjoy your time off.

This summer, I'll be going to Hampton Beach, N.H. to meet many family members from my late father's side... for the first time ever. Boy, is it going to be awesome!

BTW, your blog's now linked on my sidebar... can't believe I hadn't gotten around to it for so long!
