Third Times a Charm

It is almost time for me to go back to school, and I have just realized that the last few months I haven’t made a single post. Well as most of you know I got my second cast on, four weeks later it was removed, and after a quick x-ray it was determined that a third one was needed. This one is MAROON. So, now I have my third cast on till March 22. Dad received a mandoline for his birthday, from Lisa and Matt and was so excited about the gift that I couldn’t resist snapping a few shots. When Sunday rolled around the attempt to slice tomatoes for some hamburgers failed the mandoline was sadly returned to its cardboard box. He is currently anxiously awaiting the return of a much better mandoline. In febuary G-Lo (Mom), Lisa, and I had a 4 day weekend. We spent four hours on Friday driving to Savannah, GA. It was nice weather at the coast. High 60’s, low 70’s. After checking into our hotel we headed down to River Street. River Street is the strip of shops and stores right on the Savannah River. Among these shops is some very good Seafood restaurants as well. After looking over many menus we chose to dine at the Oyster Club. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO SEAFOOD LOVERS. They have everything from mahi mahi and grouper to crab and oysters. G-Lo and I enjoyed some shrimp and Snow Crab, along with a lovely calamari appetizer. Lisa, an avid seafood hater, enjoyed a chicken Caesar salad. After dinner we gathered in line for our ‘Ghosts and Gravestones’ trolley tour of Savannah. Apparently Savannah is one of the most if not THE most haunted city in the US. (or so they say) One of the mansions we went in was featured on Discovery Channels “Ghost Hunters”. I think the show should be called “Orb Hunters” the whole night our tour guide was blabbing about Orb’s and all the different colors and meanings. Just an FYI- the “Red Orbs” are VERY dangerous and vicious. I’m not trying to rag on the tour, it was fun just some of the stories shared were rather farfetched. Savannah is such a pretty city. It is very old so some of the roads are cobblestone, the houses are all very unique, and the trees are all covered in Spanish Moss. In other news, I am now 19. This is officially my last year of being a teenager, but besides that I think that’s it for the age 19 being special. (Let me know if there is anything I can do now that I am 19) I had been craving crab since we went to Savannah, so we ended up going to dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack. I should have known it wasn’t going to be as good as fresh from the ocean crab. It was still nice though. My cast just smells like seafood now :(. Anyway, I’ll be expecting, I mean, accepting gifts delivered to my home address, let me know if you need it. Muhahaha.
