A Few Things I Miss in Mississippi

Besides my condo, my bike, ballet, Whataburger (the store on Highway 49 is the best), the beach, my Primary kiddies, the few friends that I have there, the survey, and my laptop, here are a few photos of some other things I miss tonight...
My Barbie kite:
Amanda surprised me with the Barbie kite after a horrible workday. It was the perfect gift at the time for reasons I will not bother discussing. I have flown Barbie at least twice since March and hope we have many more days at the beach before the year ends.
Catching frogs:
I love catching frogs. I can't explain it. I just know I love it! They are so soft and harmless. I like to feel their little bodies expand and contract as their lungs fill with and release air. I also enjoy the way Jennifer reacts each time I catch one. The idea that a frog could rip someone's face off amuses me and I miss hearing her scream each time I approach her with one.
Although she is only nine years my senior, Jennifer has become like a mother or an older sister, to me. Every evening when I ride my bike she faithfully waits and watches me from the parking lot until I return to the complex. She often walked me to my door and would stay for late night chats. I would give her candy and water and, in return, she would leave little flowers on my car or notes under my door.
She was always there in the morning waiting to send me off to work. Stephanie and Joy may remember Jennifer. She is wonderful to all my guests but is very protective of me when it comes to my male guests, not that I have very many.
For example, Jennifer warned Ben that he came over too late. Needless to say, that was the last time he watched movies at my apartment-EVER. I don't mind though. I'm just glad that she cares.
She is a great friend who makes living at The Ocean Club a little less lonely. I can't wait to see her again.

I remember Jennifer. She was very nice.

That Barbie kite sounds awesome. I'm a little jealous.

I love catching frogs too. They are sweet little creatures.
