I teach Maddie the finer points of shadow puppetry. I happen to be an expert. Click here for proof.

When we got to Jonathan Dickinson State Park, we noticed it was on fire!

Scorpion Sanctuary! (aka Sawgrass Village)

While walking down the hallway, I happened to glance up at the bulletin board. I saw something that I never noticed in my first 104 days at work (maybe because it was posted above my head). It was "Little Buddy" & "Big Papa". When I enquired about our office pets, Rob was kind enough to introduce me to "Frisky Boy". He (Frisky) was taped to the window after suffering an untimely death. Apparently, he ran up Rob's pant leg! would have thought this would have been disclosed during my job interview!

a ton of cake...literally!!!

Once a month the TOUR provides a birthday cake for each building. We have ours in lieu of "snack time" at our weekly production meeting. The cake was so heavy that I put it on the postal scale right before the meeting. It weighed 8 lbs!!! I didn't think to take a picture of it then, so I snapped one after we ate it 1.3 lbs of it.
