Florida has been the "Not Much Sunshine State" this week, so my fish pics will have to wait a bit. I need good light to take them.
In the meantime, here's my winning door from the homecoming spirit door decorating contest of two weeks ago. The theme was super heroes and I teach Marine Science part of my day, so good ol' Aquaman seemed appropriate.
As it turned out, the Flashes flushed us, but it was all still fun.
Aquaman's sidekick, FCATFISH.
If you live outside of FL, you should know that the FCAT is Florida's tough statewide test that drives everything we do thanks to federal NCLB madness and our own state policies.
This is not a rant post however ...
I worked in the yard and shop yesterday and got a lot done, but accomplished nothing. The sky was grey, the air was cool for a change, and it was just nice to be out there doing little jobs that seemed less fun in the oppressive heat of just a few weeks ago.
Friday afternoon, I chaperoned the middle school " Harvest Moon " dance. The decorations were spiderwebs, skeletons, and jackolanterns accented by a cool fog machine. Seemed like a Halloween dance to me, but of course that would not be tolerated these days ...
Sort of a "Harvestoween" theme I guess.
Middle school dances deserve a post of their own sometime.
Junior and his Mom arrived home safely Saturday after an incredibly busy week at the National FFA convention. Mrs. FC said Indianapolis is a neat town and she'd like to go back without a schedule.
I'd like to go anywhere without a schedule.
