We ate out at our favorite spot for crab and I finally remembered to bring my camera and take a few pics. I'll create a slide show and post it with the title. While we walking on the dock we spotted a baby alligator and a turtle. The turtle swam over to the alligator and he moved out its way. We also seen a crane and some type of fish that was jumping out of the water and making ripples and waves. It was a nice calm and cool day.
I'm just so blown away by our new monitor. We got a Sony 19" Flat Panel LCD PC/TV DisplayMFM-HT95. With the touch of a button on my remote I can view TV and then swap back to the Mac screen. Its just so cool. Yesterday Rich got me Tiger and so I will install it now. check out the TV in TV , I can watch tv while I'm on the web. We have the cable hook up behind my desk and that was there when we moved in. I had the cable company put one on the oppisite wall where we have our tv now, but it's up high on the wall because we plan to buy a flat screan one day.

Our trip on the Sun Cruise was nice. We had to drive out Mayport and with the traffic it took us about a hour from Orange Park. When we arrived there the boat was ready to pull away at 7 and we got there just in time. The cruise cost 10 bucks one time fee and that makes you a member for life. As be got on the ship I thought how funny it was that this was going to be our first cruise, not like a real cruise but our fist casino boat cruise. As most of you know my husband loves to gamble, me I hate it... I would rather spend a day shopping and buying things I like, that way I actually see and use the stuff that my money has some visual value. I hate to see money just lost and gone for ever. I did loose by the way 80 bucks. I had no luck what so ever, but we had fun meeting a bunch of old couples and a middle age people. The first couple we met were from GA and they had just got married that day and were on the cruise for there first time as well. Some how I could tell there were more familiar faces then new and the crow was mostly old. There was a small group of young kids that retreated to the sitting area in front of the TV rather quickly, I thin they just ran out of money too fast and we had only been sailing for about an hour. All of the old people were still out there gambling away. I sat at the sizzling 7 $1 machine most of the night and had lost 40 bucks there and then gave up. I watched this old Filipino lady play poker and get up in between hands to put a few bucks in the machine next to me. She had no luck and she got up from the poker game real quick. Rich had bought into the game with 100 bucks and was playing the entire trip. At the end of the night he had won my money I lost back and we left 70 bucks ahead, so no looser for us. ehhehe. Anyways, I had watched this old man get out of his wheel chair and using a cane to steady himself to get into the sizzling 7 machine to the right of me and he put his money in and hit 300 bucks.. Lucky dog, he cashed out and we just watched all the coins fall. the fake $1 coins that you later have to cash in. He got up from that chair and then asked me if it was okay that he held on to my chair so the he can sit to the left of me and play that sizzling 7 machine.. sure I said sure and tried to keep my swivel chair steady as he held on to my chair. When he was in his seat, he had told me hew was a double amputee and had lost both his legs from the knee down, in the war. He put his money in and hit the spin wheel two times. and won 200 bucks on the send spin. Man I was just so sad that every one around me had been winning on there machines and at this point I had only lost 20 bucks and was miserable. then the lady sitting next to him finally hit 300 , but she had been sitting there since the gambling started and she is die hard you can tell, because she plays 2 machines at the same time. she was going back and forth from win to loose on both machines and then at that very end the last machine on the wall in this line of up of about 7 sizzling 7 machines. that lady on the end had hit the progressive jack pot and won 1050.00. Rich had fun but he thought it would have been more exciting then it really was. the boat consisted of 3 decks, 2 decks of gambling and the top deck for food, dancing and a little sight seeing section. When the boat was first taking off we were up at the top deck just meeting with people and watching the boat pull away from the dock. It was such a pretty day and we could see the sun set... I was sad that I didn't have my camera.

I might try it again in a few days. I'm just sitting around being lazy in bed. It's too cold outside.We are having some weird FL weather.

We just got home from the Ball game. We lost the game but it was a really close game. We started off the day by going to the Jazz festival and after that we headed over to the ball game to watch the Jacksonville Sons and this team from Alabama. I thought the high tech name badges for over 21 drinkers was a cool thing. I didn't drink, but I had to buy Rich a beer. We ate nachos and funnel cake while at the park. It was such a nice laid back and mellow day.

I took Mianna to the fair today. We didn't ride any rides, since she had gone on a few with her dad on Monday. I just wanted to go and pig out on junk food. We met up with Rich at a Mexican restaurant and after we that we came home to rest. I was so sleepy that I took a 2-hour nap and then I got up around 7 and we got to the fair by 8. I was supposed to meet up with Merranda and her family, but by the time we got to the fair and had called them, they had just got home. Today was her sons 5th B-day and so they took him to the fair. I called her and told her we were at the fair and that sorry we didn't get to meet up since I was dead sleepy. We ate funnel cake, dipping dots, corn and of course cotton candy. I took a few pics.
