Good Bye, California and Cashmere!
And turtle-necks, leather boots, scarves, and gloves, berets, blazers, and wool coats…
Hello Flip flops, sandals, T-shrts, sundresses, capris
and suncreen in December
(and January, February, March…)
To the land of No reindeer – lots of Pink Flamingos –
No Snow-flakes – Lots of Snow-cones…and Snow birds.
She was a night owl… he was a ‘mourning’ person.
They were polar opposites and very attracted.
She was peppy and perky and reveled in all the trappings of Christmas – from candy canes and wreaths, Christmas carols on the radio 10 hours a day, to red and white sweaters, socks and warm hats, and mittens and mistletoe.
He was a Hanukah kind of guy. Not that merry – not that happy.
The six month sabbatical in South Florida was a meant be a lark – it turned out to be more of albatross.
She slept in – he was up very early, ran three miles and wrote the book, did research and taught the class. Went to dinner with clients.
She wanted to explore, have adventures, hit the clubs, eat Cuban food and party. He didn’t. He wouldn’t. She found a passel of people who were fun, single and adventuresome. Bliss! Solo bliss…however, she was ‘sought after’ by kindred souls.
Bam! One day – December 25th – he was working – she met a soul mate. A 100% perfect match who was being transferred to The Bay Area.
She hitched her heart on that star and they have been happily ever after.
Florida- where Palm Reading takes on a whole new meaning.
