Leaving Annaly

The story of leaving paradise for Houston.

What is it about Houston that makes it seem like the end of the line?  It’s like when you say, “I’m moving from St. Croix to Houston,” you’re announcing a terminal illness.  Houston, bless its heart, is not beautiful.  If the heat and humidity don’t kill you, then the traffic might.  People don’t dream of vacationing to Houston.  Hell, I can’t even get my parents to visit me here.

And I moved to Houston from the Virgin Islands

Read my guest post on “Leaving Annaly,” and the islands, for Houston on Snowcones’ blog.  It just takes one click, and I promise it will be worth it. http://blogs.fingerlakes1.com/snowcones/leaving-annaly/

While you’re there, poke around a little — Snowcones is one of my favorite bloggers.

    I can tell you the exact date when this photo was taken, it was on July 7th, 2002 because I was there, my first weekend on Buck Island as a new resident of St. Croix. I even jumped with the kids off the deck, and didn’t even feel the pain (Thank you Cruzan RUM). 🙂

    I remember!
    Coincidentally, we served Cruzan Rum to new friends Saturday night. I do believe they felt no pain, either.
