Wild Trees - Part Deux

Another beautiful, lush tree.

But what type of tree is it?

A Banyan tree?  A palm tree?

This looks like a Banyan tree, or something like it.

But I see some palm fronds sticking out the top.

So there is also a palm tree in there.

From the other side, you can see the palm tree growing up and through the other tree.

Or actually, upon closer inspection, the other tree has grown up around the palm.

Almost smothering it.

I guess it's not just the gators and pythons that are aggressive down here.

Next door is a tree with some unsightly growth.

And probably just before a big date.

Looks like cactus that grew up the trunk.

Or, down from the top.

Regardless which way, it keeps the city workers busy cutting them down.

Down the street, another cohabiting pair of trees.

They look happy enough.

Alright, this is too much work.

 And I don't want to get in trouble.

And what is this wasn't true?

The world would be a pretty lonely place......

Knowing Your Customers

And in south Florida, there is lots of competition for these customers......

I Appreciate The Effort......

...but hope Sally Ann isn't spending too much money on credit card verification.

Unless the guys who are lifting credit card information have changed since I was a boy.

"Hey Louie!  I got the card info.  So let's make some donations!!"

Holy Crap!

I hope that's not what I think it is......

Holy crap, it is!

A Hammerhead shark.  Right where I was walking.

Is he looking at me?  They say the eyes follow you everywhere.

Holy crap, he is!

"Why don't you just come a little closer, there, City Boy. Chomp, chomp..."

Now in case you think I'm getting worked up over nothing, this guy was huge!

What?   Still not impressed?


Still not impressed?

Oh....Photoshop crashed.....

I'll Take Two!

37 foot Boston Whaler for a cool half-mil.

But these guys have a lot to learn from car dealers.

Wouldn't let me take it out for a test drive! 

So good luck selling this hunk a junk!

Good One!

Great practical joke. Wish I'd thought of it.

Some guys removed the channel markers from the channel!

I wish I could have stuck around long enough to see the faces of various boaters missing the channel and going on the rocks!

Good fun!

Okay.....they might have been preparing to dredge the channel.

But until they finish....good luck, matey!
