Earthquake hits Florida

My house here in Grayton Beach shook on its pilings. The cats hair stood up on end. And I sat there like a bumpkin thinking Earthquake or bomb. We get a lot of bomb fallout from the near by airbase as they practice. Then Fox News came on with a special news flash...a 6.0 earthquake out in the Gulf of Mexico. Felt from Tampa over to New Orleans and even into Georgia. I guess I will now have to add earthquakes along with hurricanes and sharks to the dangers of living in paradise.

This One Didn't Get Away!

SIL went fishing and caught this beauty. He catches and then releases ,so this fish will be able to swim away . Of course the fish takes the chance of being caught by some other fisherman, but maybe that is his goal in life.
Note that big grin on SIL's face.
