No Regrets?

Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Our 6th grandchild, Carolyn, was born yesterday. We will be going to see Carolyn on the 22nd and then heading back to Tampa.

We are guests of Ann and Andy this week. We play 3 or 4 sets of doubles tennis every day with them at the country club. In the evening we go out on the pontoon boat and swim in the darkened lake.

It's nice to swim without worrying about gators or sharks for a change.....Let's rethink that.... I have no regrets, nothing to change...I think I'll start walking the inner city streets again at 3 AM when we get back to Tampa. I like to wear all black clothing, black gloves and a black hood and stand by the docks in the AM shadows waiting silently for passerbys. The future Phred will have no regrets. I hope to see many more sharks and gators soon. And the next time we pass an amusement park, I'm going on the big waterslide. That's only regret...waterslides passed.


  1. Bob, I spent quite a long time tonigt reading your comments. You have quite a story! Right? It was an action-packed vacation and one that you will never forget.

    Continue to enjoy and come back to Tampa as soon as you can.
