I thought I saw a purple golf cart
But it can't be true
It's freezing here in Texas
And I'm Belize blue.

I thought I saw a purple golf cart
There it goes again so near
Must be on its way to DFW
'Cause it sure didn't slow down here.

Rick & Cheri!!
I KNOW what you mean. I'm in Corpus Christi and it's cold here too!! I thought this place was supposed to be tropical? My kitchen looks like a jungle. I had to bring in all my plants. We even had frost!!! I made a huge pot of soup and we even have a fire in the fireplace. And sadly, this cold snap even killed out new palm tree in the back yard. [Linked Image] I was trying so hard to make it look like Belize. [Linked Image] Hope the bauginvilla (sp?) and the hibiscus make it. Just planted them too!!!

Debbie Debbie, you have to learn how to protect your plants in South Texas. If you can't bring them in the house, you have bedding on hand to wrap them up, for the cold snaps. Save all old blankets and comforters, just for those days. Plastic works good, but you have to get it off, when the sun comes out, or you have steamed the plants to death.

It has been 70 degrees here in northern California for the past week. All the flowers are blooming. Getting Spring fever! They still expect lots more rain. Can't wait till 5/2 when I will be back in AC for 10 days!

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/03/02 08:33 PM

Chloe, thanks for the tip. Since we're dipping down into below freezing for the thrid night in a row tonight, I've got the plastic all done. Hope I'm not to late for the flowering plants..... The palm tree is a gonner.......
Cheri, my family lives near you in Plano, and they were amazed at the road conditions. People were sliding back downward trying to get up one of the winding ramps over the freeway.... Bbbrrrrrr....... Steaming pot of stew last night, and chili tonight.... I too have an aloe vera from hell. I got it as a baby in New Mexico 8 years ago. I've taken baby shoots off of it, and given to my frineds, and the thing keeps growing!! It's a monster. Keep warm. [Linked Image]

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/04/02 04:36 PM

I'm really weeping big FROZEN tears for you Texans... Up here in Iowa it's 8 degrees below zero this morning --- record cold. Two weeks ago I had crocuses blooming on the north side of my house. Now this. Poor things are out there under the new 10" snowfall we had Saturday freezing their little petals off!

Do I win the "Whining about the cold" contest ;> )? If so, please award me one free trip to AC! By the way, will be there 4/14/-4/24. If I win, that guarantees I can go back a second time this year. Keep your tongues off the flagpoles, kiddies!

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/04/02 04:37 PM

gay, duh, nipplie is what happens to we of the fairer sex when it is cold.

you texas folk must have our PA weather this year. it only snowed here once, really (hee hee the week i was in FL). yesterday it was 60. my tulips & daffodil greens are popping up, and my neighbor has crocuses already. the robins are back already. weird. WAY too early.

cold again this morning, tho.

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/04/02 05:05 PM

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/05/02 04:13 PM

Cheri: Sounds like a plan. We'll be at Caribbean Villas. Only thing we know we'll be doing for certain is BC's on Sunday 4/21 at 11:00. (April Board meeting???) Plan to do some fishing, trip to Caulker, etc. but no solid dates yet. Just look for the early 50's Old Fogies with the extra poundage biking the island. That will be us!

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/05/02 04:57 PM

The Palapa after BC's...on Sunday!!!! Starting my countdown!!!! C
Posted By: BankerWoman

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/05/02 05:14 PM

Sounds great --- you lead to Palapa since you know your way around. Maybe we'll find you prior to that since 4/21 will be just a couple of days before departure. We're planning to try and catch up with a Barefoot Skinny performance or two while there. Would be very cool if he would invite boarders to announce their screen names and we could see who is there at any given time! We're getting psyched!
Posted By: rickcheri

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/05/02 07:02 PM

I'm sure he will....he is a good friend!!! He plays at Fido's on Weds. and Fri. nights....we will be there!! Should be checking into the Holiday Hotel or Rubies on the 15th!!! We are VERY excited...it will be trip #10!!! C

Hi friends: For the legends of people wantin to know "Where's Bill", well I'm alive and well macheting my way through the jungles of Copan, Honduras. Having a great time, but getting home sick, not for St Louis, but for San Pedro. Can't wait to see my plants and begin again on my golf "course". Take care: Bill

Hey guys
Thought I would let you all know that down here in South Africa the sun is shining and I spent the weekend lazing in the pool. Gee sorry maybe we shouldn't gloat down in the Southern hemisphere.

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/09/02 05:03 PM

Well, thank goodness it has warmed up to the 70's here in South Georgia!! Didn't know if I was going to survive.... especially with the husband being in AC, telling me how warm it was...
Someone mentioned having the April board meeting at BC's on the 21... count me in! I am surprising Butch on the 7th-- will be there until the 22nd. Rick and Cheri, and whoever else... just call Caribe Island and find me!!! Last trip, I met NO boarders, and it sure wasn't as great as last June (Debbie, Munich Chick, and many others)... Maybe we should all plan to meet a few days earlier....(since that will be my last day). So who all is there in April???
Posted By: rickcheri

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 03/10/02 05:34 PM

Yes Vicki...we will be there the 16th-25th.....Meet at BC'S on the 21st???? Or we will be at Fido's when Barefoot is playing! Staying at the Holiday Hotel....you can always find us there!!!! C

I have been reading a lot of the posts here and you all sound like such a blast! My hubby and I are taking our first trip to Belize. I have a feeling there will be many more trips back. We are staying at the Victoria House April 13-20th and would love to meet up with you party people! I think I read that Barefoot Skinny plays on Wednesday and Friday nights...would love to catch that.

Cheers,

Re: BERND/BILL...anybody....... - 04/02/02 04:23 PM

Try THIS for weather...Yesterday morning rain, then four inches of snow (totally unpredicted),temps rose to 65 degrees forty miles south of us in the afternoon, then rain again. This morning, thunderstorms, pea-sized hail, sleet, fog, freezing rain, now snow with accumulation predicted. You absolutely have to love life in the upper Midwest. Did we pick the right time to make a run for it to AC or what? Will see you guys in the warm sun in less than two weeks!
