A is for .....

A IS FOR ABACO
Abaco is one of the outer islands of the Bahamas



My son and his girlfriend just returned from there after a two week vacation -- and no, he is not the Barefoot 


Bandit, who was caught there about a week after they had left!  If you look at the top center of the map you will 




see the small island of Abaco.  The main 'town' on the island, Marsh Harbor, has ONE stop light.


 But more interesting than the map are these photographs:














NOW THAT'S THE LIFE !!!




(Sorry don't know why Blogger is leaving large spaces between my lines of typing above.  In addition when I type in the copy  the lines are doubling up on top of one another.)

You have a handsome son, and his girlfriend is very pretty.

Surely a pretty place to have good and nice vacation. One of our german friend already went to the Bahamas.
Lucy is a very pretty female cat.
Almost every morning our neighbor's cat comes in our garden. I took some pictures for my blog.

Oh, that looks like an awesome holiday. Well, I hope it was a holiday, since I coulnd't read anything apart from 'Now that's the life'!

I'm awed and envious! We have now the kind of weather you encountered last year :-)

What a beutiful place. Re your big spaces etc, Have a look at the Edit Html tab as opposed to the Compose tab. If you pre write it in a word processor, you may find some bits of spurious Html code in there that come from your word processor. You can edit these out but you need to be able to recognise which HTML code is for the picture and which is for the script, or you will lose the picture.

Hi Snafu: Thanks for the info. I'm sure you're right. I did take a look at the HTML format, but there's such a lot of stuff there that might be spurious or might not, I didn't dare touch it since I know nothing about html. Hopefully my next post won't be like this. I know I was doing a lot of juggling around just to get the badge into jpeg form, so who knows what I did! Happy to have you visit my blog. I'll be over to see you this evening probably
