Bill was breaking out his best dance moves as Bob pointed to the outdoor dance patio.

Ken pulls off his Donald Rumsfeld impression as Bob looks in disgust. I think he liked the dancing better.

Lunch was just as good as the palms! It has been a while since I laughed as hard as when Keith mentioned how much he liked Bumble Bee tuna. :lol: Ill let Ken tell the details.

yes. In Palm Beach when you ask if the Tuna is fresh you may hear the waiter tell you that it is fresh canned in oil. You may then reply "What?" and the after many attempts to figure it out and with Bubba doin the Bumble Bee twist you may be near to being asked to leave.

Since we had made such a grand entrance in the first place what with the truck driver drifting into the vallet lane and leaving the truck in the middle of the raod as we hopped out (remember no one was in town so no biggie :innocent: ). We then rearanged the tables till we had it right (after knocking over the gerber daisy...twice). The waiter realy could do little more than tell me again that the tuna was fresh canned in oil!

This was all accepted with a twisted face by the waiter and Bubba presented us with a fine lunch. Mine was not the same pastrami as at The Hat in California (We were in Palm Beach after all) so I only had a few slices of some very good ham!

For the record as we walked in the door, rowdy and loud... the host seated us in our own "private corner" of the restaurant... most likely so we would not "disturb" the other guests.. :rolleyes:

As some of the party thinned out Christian and I were not done yet. We followed Bill to his nursery (Kingfish you got a pic?) and we took a pic in his office. It was in Lantana or some place south of Palm Beach (it may as well have been ANTartica). The coolest thing was that Bill has a better set up than most pros (certanly better than I)

Don't say that. Everytime they escape some poor schmuck in security loses their job. Amazinig how many times they have found an out. And we have quadrupled their drug doses too. i think they use some kind of palm seed on the grounds to counteract the sedatives, hence their love of palms.

Larry, You were in the conversation at lunch. Something about a real funny guy and you did what in Costa Rica? Something about Miss Louisiana?

All I gotta say is THOSE ANTS WERE DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT! Likewise the earwigs.

Now time to bail Bubba out for the Joan Collins mixup... John and my photos were from the 50s classic "Them!".

Bubba was thinking about "Empire of the Ants".

Trust me when I say, Bill has much better dance moves than that! :winkie: He may appear reserved, but that man of character and statue, can move like nobodies business to reggae!

Gentlemen, thanks for sharing your delightful experience, truly a living work of art!

It was a fANTastic day. The owner of the property is Bob (Eigelberger), the ant farmer...he has over 6 acres and over 100 species of palms...the hurricanes of '04 and '05 hit the place very hard so most of what you have seen is relatively new. Now if you want to see the place from your computer, enjoy www.casaphippsberger.org.

To continue with pix of the Broward garden here is a nice representation of Echmans hard work.

Any one recognise the garden yet?

I did not ingest this mushroom but after the Palm Beach high and what was still to come I did not need much more than the Kirin Tall Boy that Kingfish got me at the gas station. (It cost $135 to fill up!)
