Ninja bagger


The guy who rides this motorcycle to work may be the person bagging your groceries at the local Publix supermarket. Look for a really speedy bagger.

Lawn care is a huge business in the Ocala area. The roads are filled with pickups towing trailers filled with tractors, edgers, trimmers, and all the other paraphernalia necessary for this occupation.

Health Expo for Seniors - Heathbrook outdoor mall



There's a story here. We arrived late morning. Many booths had not been set up and there were very few people. I thought that was strange. Then I saw a sign which said the event began at noon. Duh! The expo was still rather dull: a few booths featuring medical facilities or products; one featuring outdoor garb and gear; a couple of artists, etc., and of course, some new cars on display - just in case one of us seniors decided to trade in the old clunker.

Pay to ride


Some horses in Ocala you have to pay to ride. And then they still don't go anywhere!

Where are my balloons?


There's a story here. A young girl ran out into the center of the mall and left these balloons sitting here. Before long, a younger boy, very agitated, came running to retrieve them! Big sister was teasing her little brother! He was not a happy camper!

Happy Fourth of July ?


On the Fourth of July, New Years and other assorted and sundry holidays, Floridians blow up firecrackers and just about every other variety of fireworks. Some get seriously injured. Others burn down houses or forests. We often had bottle rockets landing on our roof!

Most fireworks are illegal in Florida. Hah! There's a loophole. And because of that loophole, fireworks stands such as this spring up everywhere at certain times of the year. If you sign a piece of paper stating you plan to use the fireworks you purchase for agricultural purposes, you can buy anything you want.

So, who's to know that you don't know agriculture from urban blight? The authorities pretend none of this is happening.

Sticker shock


Local car dealers park new cars in the Paddock Mall. Naturally, people stop to look them over and check the price sticker on the window. This gentleman checked out the car, then checked out the price; then checked out the car, then checked out the price. The price, perhaps, put him into shock!
