Decking the Halls

Time to decorate!

Visions of sugar plums, and all that.  Maybe some chocolate-dipped banana kebabs . . .

Out for Pizza

His favorite, veggie pizza and water on the rocks!  If only they had a bendy straw.

Indian Mounds

'Ocmulgee National Monument protects and preserves "Lands commonly known as
the Old Ocmulgee Fields," which documents a 12,000-year continuum of people and their
Middle Georgia environment.' 
Wow, heavy stuff, just like those big baskets of dirt they used to make these hills.

Nobody said anything about keeping off the sign.

Dickey Farms

Shopping for a little local color at Dickey Farms.  Always excited about fresh fruit!


Headin' South Again

Satchmo is becoming quite familiar with this stretch of I-95.  Here he's stopped at a Cracker Barrel on his way down to Georgia, anticipating a lovely lunch of chicken salad and getting in some practice at the peg game while Tom'Atto isn't around.

Home Again

And now it's time for that long, long road trip back home.  Pack up the granola bars and bottled water.

Feels like summer.

Giant pineapple or tiny palm tree?

Orange fruits!

Barbed wire.


Wagon ride!  Maybe that isn't the best place to sit.

Will it bite?

A vacation isn't a vacation until the booze comes out.

Ooooooo, bubblesssssssssss . . .


Exploring the swamp.

Palm trees!

Keeping an eye out for dinosaurs and alligators.

Running Errands

Cleaning up car mess and soaking up sun.

Tom'Atto discovers Sams Club.

Fresh Fruit

Picking fresh Florida grapefruit right off the tree!  Sure beats paying for it at the souvenir fruit stand.

Got a big one!

Loading up on vitamin C.

Swamp monkeys!

Trip to Florida, Part 2

Where are we?

Eew, yucky bathrooms.

I am the Frito Bandito!

Fourteen hours in the car can really run you down.

State line!  How exciting!

Really big bridge at Jacksonville.

No more road food!  Stopped for tasty chicken and fries.

Somewhat lost in Florida.  Trying an alternate route through the swamp.

Success at last!

Trip to Florida, Part 1

Our intrepid monkeys hit the road very early in the morning and head south.  There really isn't much to do for several hours but listen to loud music and try to stay awake.

Onward into the darkness.

Is it time for breakfast yet?

Sunrise!  Wakey, wakey!

Jammin' to some tunes.  Turn it up!

Driving through the Carolinas.

Some dude called Pedro, and his giant sombrero tower.

First Snow!

Whew!  Nothing like some ice on your banana bum to wake you up in the morning!

This is going to take a while.

New Year, New Car, New Adventures

Satchmo missed 2011, but he's ready for 2012 with a new ride and new plans.  If only he could find some new clothes . . .
