Ugly Duck

Today's post is written by guest blogger, The Snarky Duck.  She scares me, and that's why I let her write.

Tomorrow will bring us up to four weeks in Lake City, Florida.  Here's why that's good:
  • We are very comfortable
  • Camphosts are generous with electricity
  • Swimming pool
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden
  • Laundry facilities
  • Sunshine
  • Sunshine
  • Sunshine
  • Free parking
  • My favorite wine costs $2.77.
Lake City has a cute downtown that's two blocks long.   It's perfect for a week's stay, because the quaint is still new when you roll out of town.  It also has a Food Lion, a Publix, a WalMart, a Lowe's, and Coke Icees. On Monday I went to the mall with nothing to shop for.

I've been here so long I've started thinking it would be fun to go to church.   

There is plenty of diversity.  There are pink people and there are brown people, and they are all Baptists.  

You know how you see some woman in a bikini, and she looks really good and then you notice the scary, irregular mole on her back?  That mole?  It's us. It doesn't fit in, and should be removed surgically.  You know how you see some guy in a Speedo?  That Speedo?  It's me.  Just barely holding in something no one wants to see.

There are good reasons for staying a while longer, and Annie will talk about them later, when Snarky Duck is drunk and happy.

Thanks, Donna! We haven't been to the memorial in about eight years, but Snarky Duck has been telling the story ever since. The park is very pretty, though; we should go visit it again.

True fact: Stephen Foster never visited the Suwanee River, and grew up in Pittsburgh. I learned that in the museum.

Why will you ever leave? Sounds like a good place to stay for as long as they will let you.

Well, Snarky Duck certainly has a way with words...hehe. You definitely look like you've hit the moochdocking jackpot where you're staying now, despite sticking out like sore ducks. You might have to stay forever...It's hard to get rid of a mole you know (I've tried) :)

Four weeks in one place sounds great. Isn't that known as the stay a month discount?

All the reasons to stay in Lake City sound great too but HOW HOT is it???
