Happy Father's Day


My cool cat dad has been gone since 2009, and he is missed terribly by all of us. 

Happy Father's Day to those of you who mark the day.

(This photo looks pink because it is terribly faded and efforts to sharpen it in its digital form altered the color...)

Peony Love


Quite possibly the last of the season...

Hello, Mr. Lizardo

 Check out this beauty! We usually see little "geckos" around our property; they are most often small with varying tail lengths. But this guy!
Looooong tail...

Overhead shot to see his size. 

Nature is so cool!

Are those stars? 

Why no, these are super-cool (and weird) bubbles, which appear to be made of or filled with "smoke." They dissolve in midair or the moment they touch something.

(See the cool moon sliver there in the middle of the photo?)

And they were being generated by this contraption on top of a house. I've never seen anything like these before...and I'm glad I saw them!

Beautiful Garbage


All of my lovely get-well arrangements have gone bye-bye, but they continue to be beautiful, even in the greenery recycling barrel.

Monday Bird Funnies


That bummed-out feeling when the community pool is closed.

Synchronized finching.
Nothing like having the pool all to yourself.
When mom arrives and tells you it's time to get out of the pool.
"There's someone behind me, isn't there?"
"May I help you?"
When you stick your toe in to see how warm the water is.
"This is a private cabana, buddy..."
