for a week! We're headed to Florida with the kids and grandkids, and I've been forbidden to take a computer. I'm not sure the rental house has Wifi, anyhoo.
We're staying on a saltwater river, just a few minutes by boat to great uninhabited islands with beautiful gulf beaches. We'll have a big pontoon boat for several days.
Just wanted to let you guys know. I know how we worry about each other!
Don't scare me like that!Ha! have a big ole time! But the day after you get back, CHECK IN!
I knew it was a trick heading.
hey, enjoy your stay! I think vacations are best without the online gadgets. be sure to stop at the welcome station and get your free glass of OJ, if you're driving.
north, south, central?
Have a grand time, I thought I had missed something.
you are so bad ! u had me goin there for a minute !
Oh goodness Habee. I was sooo gonna either yell at you or cry.
Have a fantastic trip!
have fun. you should definitely write a hub about your trip, as im sure many of us would love reading about it. anyways, i hope you have fun.
gee habee don't scare people like that - its not very nice Hope you have a wonderful time
You are nasty habee!
To think that I actually clicked on here to try and persuade you to stay!
* only for a week of course.
oh- whew! ya had me going there for a minute! Well, have a great vacation - a week will go by so fast, say hi to the manatees if you see any (or are they inland?) for me, give them my love and kisses, too!
I think not taking a computer is the best idea - you will really, really relax!
You guys are too cool!! I expected lots of replies like Ryan's: good! Glad you're leaving! lol
I just didn't want anyone to think I had died or something.
But that's what I thought when I read this! I figured it would take something drastic for you to leave and was thinking the worst!
Have a great trip. I'll be expecting those hubs with pictures.
Bayou, when I get back, I'll prolly write a hub about my experience - hopefully with lots of pics!
haha! read the posts...sounds like you are going to have fun...these days i feel it so important to disconnect when you are looking for relaxation....turn the phone off too if you can...
have fun with your family!
Bekah, we're going to the gulf, just north of Cleawater and Tampa. I don't think the oil spill or tar balls have reached that far south.
To everyone else, thanks for the well wishes!
well, hey, you'll be in my home territory! the water is fine here, beautiful, no oil!
we go out on a boat at times to an island north of Tarpon.
it is heaven on earth. the boats anchor near a sand bar and the sand bar is big enough for chairs, picnics, dogs. we saw a manatee very close to shore once. it was AWESOME. at first, we weren't sure what it was, and then it came up close to the surface. we see dolphins every time we go to the beach.
if you have a chance, you should go on the ferry to Caladesi Island and check out Honeymoon Island, they're beautiful beaches.
Photos Rebekah... where are your pics.
Travel directions and a spot X ...
Hell I could live on sand bar like that.. it would feel like home
And.... No lawns to mow
I don't have any personal pics of the island .. we jump off the boat and swim to shore.
I do have a tampa bay hub with a pic of caladesi island and some of the metro area.
anclote key sandbar.
at this time of year, there are boats all around it like a tail gate party.. in the gulf.
A happy week for hubpages without habee! Have a nice trip habee.
I thought the rest of us would now have a chance in the next hub comp
I hope you get attacked by big fish after you've scooped the oil of the surface.
have fun!!! You watch, you'll probably have crazy earnings while you're gone and can't check. That is how it always works for me! Although I almost always cheat and check on my bberry....
Ron, I'm not a big fan of gator, but I do hope to bring back some shark meat, flounder, reds, snapper, trout, and/or sheepshead. Maybe some crabs, too.
All y'all come on down to GA and we'll have us a fish fry! I make the best hush puppies in the world!
You can always sneak into a library, maybe? They have PCs. Have fun and hope ya find some great shark teeth fossils. Be safe wonder woman
Enjoy your vacation Habee! I expect we'll see Hubs about that part of Florida with plenty of pics.
Hey Habee enjoy your time off, I bet you can't wait. Vacation time is always the best time. I once rented a houseboat for a week and roughed it with my family, It was so much fun, swam, fished, camp fires on the shorelines. Loved every second of it. Take care enjoy and stay safe. Leave your laptop at home, we will all still be here when you get back. he he
I thought of someplace else if you're going north of Tarpon Springs. If you are anywhere near Port Richey, the best Hooters in Tampa Bay is up there. it's right on the water.
hey,a florida sunset, beer and hot wings!
have a fabulous time. the pontoon boat sounds like fun.
if you've never been to Tarpon Springs, it's a great place to visit.
check out the sponge dock area with all the authentic Greek shops and restaurants.
We're going to Port Richey! Have you ever been to Anclote Key or Durney Key??
oh yes, I've been to both areas. one of the islands where we go is anclote key. I'm not aware of all of their names, there are a number of small uninhabited islands in the area. it's really very beautiful and laid back. you will enjoy it!
Habee, I was just there. Anclote key is beautiful! I have family in New Port Richey so I visit there often. If you like to kayak, there is a beautiful kayaking trip to take down the weekiwachee river. You can rent the kayaks right at Weekiwachee. I can give you more info if you are interested. Have a good time!
I believe she left this morning.
there are some great waters to kayak in that area. it's called the nature coast of florida. you can even swim with the manatees which would feel good today in those refreshing spring waters. I'm pool bound this afternoon, it's hot out there. what's nice about the coast is the breeze, it always feels cooler on the water.
Habee, you are a cruel, cruel woman. First you give me a heart attack right here in my chair, and then turn me green with envy.
Do have a great time there with your family, and do let us know when the hub about the trip is finished - bet it's great!
Wow... so others would also visit if I camped there? Cool...
You are right.. I've been very slack at reading hubs... so I'm on my bike over to your place.
Your trip sounds delightful!!
Not sure I could last that amount of time without going online.
That, in and of itself, will make interesting fodder for a Hub when you return.
Happy trails and bon voyage, etc.
Do take a digital camera and a big pad of paper-- and a pencil.
Enjoy your trip, Habee. I'm under the impression you could use a little vacation after some of the events with your little granddaughter.
Wonderful ruse, my friend! I can hear the clicks all over HubWorld.
Have a ball!
She won't be able to stay away for a week! When we went to Amelia Island last fall I couldn't keep her off of my laptop! She doesn't have the will power to not check in somehow! LOL!
Damit woman! You scared me- glad its only for a vacation! Have lots of fun-relax your typing fingers
I near gave birth to a substation!
Have heaps of fun girl, and take plenty of pics!
Oh bummer that I missed her! Oh well, I'm sure she will have a good time. Hope you enjoy yourself at the pool. It sure was hot when we were there and we hit the pool almost every day!
O.k. you got me Habee! I saw the headline and was worried. 'Cause if the Georgian Queen was leaving... Would consider that to be a sign that it's time to jump ship as well... Glad to see it's just for vacation...
Have a wonderful trip my friend. Looking forward to reading the hubs.
Naughty! lolololo I thought all of us may have to save you. Have fun and enjoy!

Apparently this delightful little piece of out-of-touch vitriol has been making the rounds of Wall Street: "We are Wall Street. It's our job to make money. Whether it's a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn't matter. We would trade baseball...

Ok... enough is enough. We hate the arbitrary hubber score. It is a phantom's judgement of us and the Q and A section does not give a clear cut way to effectively appease the phantom.Until you can give us an exact science (i.e. the way capitals and punctuation are used), it is not fair to stamp a...

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I had for writing and publishing here.What about you?

What is the difference between saying "We're dating" versus "We're going out" ?

I have recently been in hospital and I notice since I have been back my Author Score has dropped to 78. I am sorry to have to say that I have decided to leave Hubpages because I am going to concentrate on my poetry as I don't seem to have what it takes to get the hubpages traffic that others get as...
