Delray Beach- Cloudy with a Twist(er)

It’s been a fun and busy week.  Eileen Burns hosted a MeetUp for Broward County on Tuesday at Caluz.  We had 4 in attendance and absolutely gorgeous weather.

Then on Wednesday, rain and a tornado down in Broward County.

On Thursday, while we were working out in the gym I heard the sirens go off.  No one paid any attention but a few minutes later, we saw that a tornado had touched down just 2 miles away.

Word to the wise… pay attention when the sirens go off!

Kindness and politeness are not overrated at all. They're underused.

One word (Polite) kept popping into my head while out shopping this week.  To set the stage, a very well-known local fresh produce store seems to have a negative effect on many of its patrons.  They enter the parking lot and lose all sense of what you and I have been taught since day one- the Golden Rule.

The produce is the best and the prices are even better. You just have to be able to put up with some of the patrons.

One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness.

The only true source of politeness is consideration.

The tornado must have been frightening. A friend of my parents posted on facebook that they were in their bathtub waiting for it to pass.

Good morning Kathy,

At least the meet up and workout were fine; don't know if I would have gone outside to see what was going on!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Hi Kathy -- courtesy and being polite may not be as common as we'd like especially in a grocery store-type of environment.   It makes a difference.  

As far as the sirens --- yes, heed them....

Kathy-I am glad you weren't affected by the twister. Politeness is scarce in some places probably more than we know. Glad you had a great meetup.

Hi, Kathy...I grew up in the midwest. I paid attention to those sirens. We don't have the sirens in CO, but I did see a tornando here. 

You take the most amazing photos. I always love seeing what you have to share.

Hi Kathy.  Glad you escaped any harm from the twister.  And, I know what you mean about that store.  I used to wear shin guards when shopping with my Mom in that store as well as the Publix near Kings Pointe.
