Day of Mental Rehab....

Yesterday as you may know, I decided to get out for some R & R. I was going to just go lounge at a lake somewhere, but I ended up at Carolina Beach...

It took me two hours to get out there. When I found a space to park, I paid the meter and climbed over the dune. When I reached the beach, I couldn't believe what I saw...nobody!! Not one other soul in sight!! Just me on my beach blanket, reading my book and listening to the waves crashing against the shore...ahhhh...now THAT'S some R & R!!!

I only got to stay for an hour, but it did wonders for my mental state, which was beginning to crumble from stress. I did not get a tan, and I did not get sunburned. But what I did get was a better state of mind...

All I really needed was an hour. The fact that there were no people (which I deal with EVERY DAY) just made it that much more relaxing!

So I got back home in time to grab a quick shower and run off to work. I was lookin good last night too with my newly refreshed state of mind. Had a fun night, though I didn't make much in tips selling those shooters.

After work I was snapped back into reality by getting pulled over by an MP (I have to drive through Ft. Bragg to get home). It seems the light over my license plate had gone out!

I kindly told the officer that I was unaware of this and that I had been having a rough week. When he brought my I.D. back to me, he told me to go on. Said that if he saw me without that plate light again, it would be a $75 fine!

Whew!!!

So that was just Friday! Don't even get me started about how today has been!! Oh well...can always sneak off to the beach again sometime down the road...

Just a day in the life of...

ST

There is nothing so sooothing to the distressed spirit than being in nature. for me that is especially true about water. Whterh it is the beach with the waves soothingly acressing the hearing, or a whitewater river with their own unique sound. Thanks so much for sharing.

Welcome back, Thang!~

Ooo-ooo! Didja find me any pretty sea shells?!!

I'm glad to hear you got to take a break, and get out by yourself in the REAL world! There is nothing more soul quieting than the sound of the surf singing it's eternal song.

You've got me thinking that it's been WAY too long since I've been down the shore. Suddenly, my gills are feeling a tad parched!

LOVE the profile shot of the very appropriate "Beach Girl" tank!

.

Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.



And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!

Lately...

Sweetthang, glad that the MP didn't write that ticket! How would anyone know their tag light was not working?!!

got a suggestion for you, for the future...when you buy the tag light, get the turn signal and back up bulbs and keep'em in the car/trunk in the bag with receipt. If/when you get stopped for this, enlist the aid of the Officer/MP to help with replacemant. The receipt will be old, and just shows you're a conscientious driver, who knows the importance of the safety lights on your vehicle.

and after the officer helps you with the light replacement make a note to yourself, to write a thank you note/email to the dept the officer is working at. these guys need all the positive feedback from John Q. Public and if you ever happen to bump into the officer again...he will remember the note you sent, as they are added to their personal file.

Sweetthang, I had a super bonehead moment, left gas pump with the nozzle still in the filler nozzle of car. thankfully one of the quick release nozzles, and a fellow driver alerted to me to the hose I was dragging down the street.
Returned to station after removing and placing in trunk. Embarrassed, I carried the hose into the counter to apologize. counter man, laughed it off, already had out of order sign on pump. 2 state troopers were inside and walked over and told me that they are always seeing the hoses just tossed on the roadside and appreciated that i brought it back.

Still smiling and embarrassed about doing that!! But the Troopers and the counterman made me feel less like the bonehead of the week!!

Glad you had a good start to the day at the beach and at least you got lucky with the cop. Hope everything else goes a bit better

mtnrvyn, welcome!! Thanks for stopping by and sharing!

Indeed the sounds of the waves are the key to the relaxation for me, but the wind blowing my hair, the sun gently kissing my skin...it all just made my day!!

Thanks again for stopping in at the Hidey-Hole!!

Mister...DOH!!! I usually look for seashells everytime I am at the beach (yes, down here we call it the beach!), but this time, I didn't have the time to or something...I'll have to get back down there and pick a few up!!

Sounds like another excuse to go to the BEACH

It is funny how in the northeast y'all call it a "shore" while we just call it beach...both are correct terms though...

mygmyg, thanks for the tip!! A warm welcome to you as well!!

As for the pump nozzle...can't say that has happened to me...thank goodness! There is always a first for everything!! I'm just giggling over the mental picture that paints...

A guy brings the lifeless pump arm up to the counter with a solemn look on his face...

Well it looked funnier in my head!!!

Sweetthang, I left a letter, I mean comment, in your last{?} post. Check it out when you have time. The officer incident reminded me of my last encounter with TN Hwy Patrol. I live in a rural area {well, it used to be}, with some State Hwy's close by. Two days ago, I was driving along, noticed THP following behind. Going about 35, when suddenly, a wild turkey darted in front of me. We have a lot of them, and I watch out for them, but I didn't see it in time. It hit the front of my Bronco, flipped over the top, and hit the Trooper's car on the windshield ! I slowed down to see that he got stopped, but as I looked in my mirror, I saw blue lights !!! I pulled over, figuring he just wanted to see if I was O.K. Imagine my surprise, when he gave me a ticket for the turkey hitting his car !!! I politely asked him why, since it obviously wasn't mine, & I didn't throw it at him. His response: "I always ticket anyone that flippes me a bird !!!!!!! Ha ! Gotcha !!! See, I can tell some that are just as crappy as Luke's !!! See Ya Sweet !!! Cabo !!!

A mushroom walks into a bar. The bartender says "I'm sorry, but we don't serve your kind here."
To which the mushroom replies "Why not? I'm a fungi!"

Luke, I was not out of the rut, just merely teetering on the edge of the rut. After this weekend I believe I may have fallen back in.



Oh well...gotta go back to the beach to get some more pretty seashells anyway!!

"Anything but a Canadian Club" replied the seal.

At that place and time, life just DIDN'T get any better than that!!
