Flower clock

The greenery waves in the air and the clock goes around. It's a very special flower clock. A timely post for sure.

Horse & Hounds

Horse & Hounds is a British-style restaurant and pub. There are two incarnations of Horse & Hounds in Ocala. The first is in an older building on Highway 27, some 15 miles west of downtown Ocala. The Horse & Hounds pictured above was built about four years and is located about six miles east of downtown Ocala. The food is decent and the prices are not outrageous.

The White Elephant...

The White Elephant is a "thrift/antique" shop in downtown Ocala with goodies piled wall-to-wall for those aficionados of such places. You can even bring your legal papers here to have them notarized.

Ocala's finest dining in town

This post is for Mary Beth up in Stanwood, Washington. Check out her blog here.

Smile! You're on Candid Camera

Thanks to all who ventured a guess as to what was portrayed in yesterday's post. Randy from Santa Fe came the closest by guessing it was a bench. Others were also quite close to correct. It was a metal bench sitting on concrete.

Peanuts at Cody's Roadhouse Grill

You eat them and throw the shells on the floor while waiting for your food to be prepared. How great is that?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind...

Blowin' In The Wind was written by Bob Dylan.

In June 1962, the song was published in Sing Out!, accompanied by Dylan's comments:

There ain’t too much I can say about this song except that the answer is blowing in the wind. It ain’t in no book or movie or TV show or discussion group. Man, it’s in the wind – and it’s blowing in the wind. Too many of these hip people are telling me where the answer is but oh I won’t believe that. I still say it’s in the wind and just like a restless piece of paper it’s got to come down some ...But the only trouble is that no one picks up the answer when it comes down so not too many people get to see and know . . . and then it flies away. I still say that some of the biggest criminals are those that turn their heads away when they see wrong and know it’s wrong. I’m only 21 years old and I know that there’s been too many . . . You people over 21, you’re older and smarter.[6]

Working hard or hardly working?

I had forgotten the theme, so this is a 2nd post for today. The gentleman in question runs a kiosk in the mall. He had been wandering about as business was slow, then went and sat down. Waiting. He may still be there!
