Some changes for me

I have decided to sell my BMW Z3, 2001 Roadster.  What with my face issues and always now needing to be wearing a hat what is the point of keeping a convertible, even if it was a James Bond vehicle?  Most especially if I can’t be in the sun at all.

Here are the details of the sale.  I really will settle for 15K.

My face is looking so much better and in about 2 months I should be in great shape.

It is a small bear cub.

A very cute story here about how it came into town, swam across a lagoon to evade police and is now up a tree.  A few more photos are included in the short article.

Mother Nature performs again

Several days ago we had a sudden and very heavy downpour.

The rain chain could barely direct the heavy flow of water.

Not often that you see both ends of the rainbow.

Can you see the second rainbow?  It is fainter but visible above the lower one.

Wow!

Wow!

Thanks for the show Mother Nature.

Thinking of you all, my dear readers.   At the moment, I have only so much time and energy each day and have to chose my activities.  So happy to have caught this butterfly on my flower pot.  Hope you had a wonderful day today and that tomorrow will be even better.

Am I the only one who feels like this?

The perfect day

Last Friday we had no rain.  It wasn’t too hot nor windy.  After a day of work we knocked it off about 4PM and enjoyed the perfect afternoon.

Colin put up the umbrella for me and I took a glass of wine out there, took off my hat and relaxed with a book and of course the view.

I thought that Colin would follow with a book or his guitar. Instead, as the lake was so clam which is unusual at that time of day he decided to go out for the first kayak of the year.

Two canoes? Our friend Barry who lives across the road hollered over to Colin to ask the que pasa question.

They had been out a long while when they went across me. Colin now had both dogs with him. Turned out she was whimpering and wanted her Daddy. At least she does stay with me when we go out as a family.

The were gone over 80 minutes, at the very least, when they returned.  It really could have been longer.  If you really need to know, I did go inside to replenish my empty wine glass.

I am so very happy that Colin just went and took the kayak out.

That same evening we BBQ ed our third Copper River salmon this month.  The smoke is from the marinade he dropped over the fish.  Last week we ran a piece of salmon over to Barry  ( his wife Rosalie was out of town ) .  Barry said that it was the best salmon he had ever tasted.

It was even better than any other salmon we had cooked. That is BBQ ed onion Ihave over my potatoe.

It really was a perfect day.

The very next day we had torrential rain and wind and it rained until about noon today.  I sure hope that all those with Father’s Day BBQ’s in the plans were able to enjoy the afternoon and dinner.
