Watch where you place your foot

Ocala, FL has a sinkhole problem. And, of all places for it to happen was in the shopping center. Three businesses had to be closed, including the theater. The sink hole, caused by heavy rains, caused the movie theater's floor to open up and the walls to spring leaks.

I spent a lot of my childhood in Ocala.. before all the horse money came in.

They had the same problem in an Atlanta area hotel parking lot caused by some poor design of underground sewer lines. It can be a big problem.

Good grief. That sounds like an earthquake, not a sinkhole. How awful about the theater. Yeah, I'd say Ocala has a little sinkhole problem.

I just read your Thursday Thirteen. I couldn't agree with you more about freshly bathed babies and I'm not even going to tell you how jealous I am of your ocean breezes. Lucky you. Sigh..

What a great Thursday Thirteen. Brut has been around forever - I used to buy it for every occasion for my boyfriend - in high school!

Barb, I'm not near the ocean - wish I was, but it's 6 hrs away. But, I still love to be around the ocean and the smells, when we go there on vacation, but it's been awhile.
