Thai food brunch at the Wat Mongkolratanaram Temple in Tampa

The brunch bunch enjoyed a smorgasbord of Thai tapas. A good time was had by all and we are ready to go again next Sunday. Yes, the members of this temple do this every Sunday. Prices range from 1.00 to 5.00 and everything is made fresh. You can smell it from the parking lot. Yum.

Remove shoes before entering but no switch to better when you leave!

Dan and Cheryl finally found the car he really wanted! It was a search and a long time coming but boy-oh-boy is this a nice ride!

Coral snake in my garden today... and the stuff that does not bother it at all

This was a brand new can of wasp spray that I showered on a nasty (but beautiful) coral snake slinking through my yard. If you don't like to see snakes, don't scroll. Close this window now. I need a snake wrangler to stay at my house for a few days and remove (translation: KILL) a few critters. I'm a prisoner here!

BTW, wasp spray doesn't do anything except make a snake mad. Thank goodness the stuff shoots a long distance because I didn't want to get close but dang... all it did was piss him off. He was trying to get to the neighbor's yard. I'm totally on board with that - get on out of here - but he couldn't fit his fat head through. Any suggestions on what to spray on snakes? Gas? I hope this isn't a 'she' snake who just deposited some eggs here. Sigh. I guess it is time to move to a high-rise. Potty pads for the girls. No, I wasn't as close as it appears. I used the ZOOM lens silly!
