Oh no, cried blog world ... he's back!

But guess what, I'm glad I decided to make a comeback.
If I didn´t rejoin SWF I would never have the chance to see this great photo!

There are more storms brewing; yet, it's nice to partake in the calmness before and after.

One of the places I wanted to see as a young man, after hearing Hank Williams Sr's version of "On the Banks of the old Pontchartrain".
Almost idyllic.

Damaged but still beautiful. We were so wiped out by Hurricane Charley here in Punta Gorda. It's taken forever to get put back together again. But, the city is really coming round. Beginning to look beautiful here again.
