LIFE ALWAYS HAS RULES...by b. Malin
DO NOT PICK THE BANANAS...
There are always Rules to follow, and most times we do. Sometimes reluctantly, and sometimes we question, but in the end, we follow.
We are now in Sunny Florida after driving a day and a half...And sharing the driving... We got to bed at 5:00 am after saying we'd unpack in the morning. "Rules" came into play, and we decided Rule #1, let's get it over with...and so, we unpacked, that's how we wound up going to bed at that ungodly hour...Bleary eyed, but Happy.
Rule #2 we weren't going to let ANYTHING bother us, you know, don't sweat the "small stuff". Even when we got the phone call from our Condo Owner on the way down informing us that the "Balcony" was under repair and we wouldn't be able to go onto it, or open the sliding doors. "What day will you be down" she asked sweetly, and I thought you'd be taking a "Cruise" first". I said "HUH"? "No, we are on our way down and should be there by Friday". "Oh she sighed, it will be done by then". "RIGHT"...we said.
Rule #3, don't forget Rule #2.
The Condo looked Great and CLEAN unlike the year before. The Condo Owner told us that she'd gotten a "New Cleaning Girl". We said, "Thank You".
Rule #4 we saw as we were taking a walk around the garden. It pertained to the "Banana Trees". Don't Eat the Bananas! This letter was posted with Instructions so carefully worded and written. People were eating them before they became RIPE, and the "Banana Tree" committee was not going to stand for anymore of that! So if we saw ANYONE eating the Banana's we were to report them to the Office or the Condo. Association. We wondered what the punishment would be... Would that person, or persons, be strung up next to the tree? And if there was more than one person, in Bunches, like the Bananas.
Lover Man ran to get his Camera, and he snapped the "Letter, and the Bananas", there were no Rules that said, "Do Not Take Pictures Of the Bananas"...So he figured it was safe to do so.
Rule #5, I promise to get back to reading your "Hubs" once again, as I've missed all my Wonderful Hub Friends...See you all soon!
