'C' is for 'Cottage' and 'Citrus'
The Wray House - Set in a Live Oak Hammock, this historical house was built in 1934. Owners Jane & Floyd Wray were pioneers in the citrus industry, planting 11,000 acres known as Flamingo Groves. The original 60 acre homestead is now Flamingo Gardens.
'C' is for 'Colourful Cocktails'!
And there are recipes for Hasta La Vista Baby & Key West Margarita cocktails printed on the back of the card! Hmm...I am really tempted to try these colourful drinks but, hey, can anyone help make equivalent mocktails rather than cocktails for me? ;-)
'C' is for 'Christmas'!
A lady posing by a Christmas, 1912. Just imagine how long she had to keep that pose for the camera at that time. I would be wriggling in total impatience! Well, I guess ladies of those days were very much more ladylike and no wrigglings tolerated!

F is for FRIVOLITY!
Moulin Rouge, Paris.
I only passed by this area during my stay in Paris. Basically me & my pals just gawked at the sights through the window of our slowly driven cab.
It was too cold and rainy for us to venture out & walk along those streets, despite the cabbie's vehement pleas for us to do so & experience...err..something different & exciting behind the doors of the buildings. Alas, by that time we had already walked miles and miles at a religious historical attraction uphill and the cold had really really killed our excitement for any kind of nightlife. All we wanted to do by then was to return to our apartment for dinner & then hit the beds! The cabbie could not believe us! Haha!
