For the Birds

After a two-day journey across several states en route to New Smyrna Beach, Florida, we finally arrived at our townhouse ready to unwind.  Unfortunately, I was never able to completely relax or shake the feeling that Alfred Hitchcock was lurking right around the corner:

I suppose this was my punishment for the grief I'd given Joe over his Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives' meltdown.  Still.

I hate birds.


  1. Hey - I was going to say Cock-a-doodle-doo, spooky.

  2. Okay, I just read through all your Spring Break vacation posts and am cracking up back here in Chicago!

    Now if you're still in New Smyrna, you need to go and eat at DJ's Deck in Port Orange ...

    ... it's a fish sandwich and beer kinda outdoor joint and my husband's very favorite place in the whole wide world. Seriously. It's on the water along the Halifax River. Here's a link to the website ...

    Maybe it can make up for the Matthews Cafeteria disappointment.

    And if you go tell them you know Willy & Molly Zurheide's daughter Linda in Chicago. Well, virtually at least!



  3. That is some spectacular decor right there. Sleep with one eye open!

  4. They're watching you, everywhere you go!

  5. Thank God I'm back in Chicago. I felt like a duck camping.

  6. You could have draped sheets over all of them. Then again, that probably wouldn't have helped.

  7. So weird! It must be a Townhouse/Timeshare/Condo vacation rental decor theme! We took a family vacation to Florida last summer, and before we settled on the resort we stayed at, we searched through a few on the internet. Country Chicken GALORE!!!!!!!!!!! I think I may have even ran across these photos........

  9. Andrea & Julie - Great minds....

    Kelly - Punny!

    Linda - More tomorrow! Had to take a break with a rant about hockey (again). We're back home, but will pass along to the husband for our return trip. Thanks!

    Itsadomelife - Sleep?

    Stephanie - I can still see them...

    Maplewood - I take it all back, CAMPING is for the birds.

    Jewels - Might have felt too much like "The Others"?

    JR - What is WITH country chicken?? It's wrong on so many levels.

    Megan - quote the raven NEVERMORE!
