Jeff Spicoli would love it here

You may have noticed (hopefully someone has) that I’ve been gone from the blog-o-sphere for a few days. My lap top became a virus victim about a week ago and has been sitting on a repair bench ever since. Nothing happens quickly at the beach. There is no sense of urgency, especially if the waves are good or the fish are running. You can walk up to a business on any given day and find a hand written note taped to the door; ‘gone fishing’ or ‘gone surfing’. We were jokingly warned of this when we first moved here. Normally I find it charming, until I need something done like repairing my laptop. My entire life is processed through this little computer. It’s astonishing how much I rely on it for both business and personal issues. There’s bill paying, purchasing, directions, reservations and weather checks to think about. And then there’s the amount of time I spend googling some random piece of information i.e., how to repair a leaky vent on my car or what is the disease “du jour’ on my lawn. This morning I’m able to enjoy my cup of coffee with Yahoo News as I steal a few minutes on Peter’s lap top. The “computer dude” (this is not his name just an observation) got back to me yesterday, the lap top will be finished on Monday morning. Assuming there will be no “tasty waves” to detain him I’ll be Twittering in no time!


  1. Welcome back, you were missed! I love the habit of "blog-naming" people I meet in everyday life to protect their anonymity. Hell, I even did it to myself!

    Hope the laptop recovers.

    It's that witness protection thing....
