Once again, faithful readers, it is time for the Grump to take a few days off from his tireless labors to renew his batteries. Grumpy will be spending a few days on Ft. Walton Beach in the Gulf, drinking rum, reading the National Geographic, and staring at very unattractive people who should be wearing a lot more clothing. On the up side, losing one’s appetite prevents any holiday weight gain.
Never fear, though — Grumpy will be ever watchful for quirky, yet informative plant stories created by people who cannot distinguish Florida from Minnesota.
My dermatologist says to protect my tender pink skin from the beach’s searing, blinding sun. No problem. Just for this occasion, I’m bringing a bottle of BP Ultimate Tanning Oil. Not only does it soothe Grumpy’s dry skin, but it also has an SPF of 1,200. The young lady above could use some.
Did someone just say, ”rum?” Signing off.
