I've never been inside this place, but according to their website, it is the place to go for an "authentic hookah experience" in Tallahassee.

Young Actors

The Young Actors Theatre and School for the Performing Arts is well known in Tallahassee. Founded in 1975, it is one of the oldest independent youth theatre programs in the United States. It even has some notable alumni (Cheryl Hines and Tony Hale). Visit the YAT website here to find out more about them.

Watch your step!

These stairs were not easy to walk down when they were dry either! The figure on the sign made me a little dizzy.

Climbing the Wall

I'm sure my eight year old grandson would love to take this home!

SkyWatch Friday

Watching through the windows as a bad storm rolls in. You can also see reflections of my camera and the lights inside and over my head in this shot. To see more fascinating skies from around the world, don't miss SkyWatch Friday.

SkyWatch Friday

Sometimes I like to look at clouds and imagine what else they could be. I think this one looks like a baby dragon floating through the sky. What do you think? To see more fascinating skies from around the world, visit SkyWatch Friday.

He's here!

A quick post to let everyone know that my grandson made his debut this morning at 2:16am. Mom and baby are doing great! I'm sorry I don't have any good pics to share just yet, but maybe soon. Baby weighed 7 pounds 1 ounce and is 19 and 1/4 inches long. Everything about him is perfect! He is named after his father (my son) and we are calling him EJ (those are his initials).

Women's Pavilion

This is a picture of the Women's Pavilion at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. I have to be honest and tell you that I did not take this picture, but this is where I am today anxiously waiting for the arrival of my newest grandson! By the way, my posting and commenting might be a little sporadic this week, but I'm sure you all will understand :)

Lunch Box

This place is only open for breakfast and lunch. I've always wanted to try it and now that I'm retired, I just might have time.

Playtime at the Mall

The play area at Governors Square Mall. Click on the picture to enlarge and see if you notice something that I didn't notice until I got home and was looking at this picture on my computer. Since this was a very public place, I thought it was alright to go ahead and post the picture.

This place wasn't open the day I took this picture or I might have been tempted to try it out. But then again, maybe not.

SkyWatch Friday

This picture is a little sad to me because up there in the right corner of the picture you can see the silhouette of a little bird peering out through the huge windows in the upper level of the Governors Square Mall. He and a couple of his buddies are trapped in there and spend their days looking outside instead of being outside. There are several fountains and a food court though, so they seem to be able to survive. To see more lovely skies from around the world, be sure to visit SkyWatch Friday.

No Parking

I think they mean it.

Pretty flowers blooming in the weeds along the sidewalk. I couldn't resist taking their picture!

Tree stump

The city of Tallahassee has a strict tree ordinance, so this tree had to be in pretty bad shape or it would still be standing.

Fat Mac's

One of the things I will miss about working at FSU. There are some pretty good food trucks parked around campus.

Fun with a Surrey Bike

My grandkids enjoyed riding in their great grandfather's Surrey Pedal Bike. He pushed them around the yard in the 100 degree heat I don't know how many times! They had a great time playing with him all day. For more info on this cute little contraption, you can visit the Surrey bike website here.

Piggly Wiggly

This week I visited some of my family who live in Bonifay, a small Florida panhandle town west of Tallahassee. This is the local grocery store in Bonifay.

SkyWatch Friday

Look very closely and you will see an airplane up there. The sun was just about to set when I took this picture. To see more beautiful skies from around the world, don't miss SkyWatch Friday.

4th of July

We are having a cookout, going swimming in the pool and hopefully seeing some fireworks tonight to celebrate Independence Day. Happy Birthday USA!

I'm done!

Today is my last day of work. Ever. After 35 years of working at Florida State University, I am retiring. It's a good feeling. This is a picture of the arch over the main gate at FSU. I took it yesterday when I was leaving the office on my way home.
