The Three Cities

 This is a church about three blocks away from us. They put little white flags in their yard. Each flag represents a death from Covid. One flag group is our city, and the two other groups are our nearby cities.




viruses are contagious
so is panic
fear
hysteria
calm
love
enthusiasm
kindness
joy
choose wisely

A Walk On The Wild Side

 Or maybe a DRIVE on the wild side. We happened to pass the local furniture store, and spotted this groundhog on their grassy patch,



Driving into their parking lot to snap him, we noticed that there was a semi wooded area behind the store. We decided to investigate. Sure enough, this was a good idea.


Oops, busted!


A little further on, we saw that he had a neighbor.


Get a  load of those EARS!


We did not investigat any further, as we saw they had a lookout on duty!


Disastrous beauty shone out —
a halo of spirit — wild and brazen and dainty…

Finally!

Today we were finally able to get together with our family, after maybe two years? All due to Covid of course. The occasion was Phil's birthday and our granddaughter Dara's birthday. Their birthdays are only three days apart. We celebrated outside, in perfect weather, and our son and daughter-in-law had such nice things in the back yard. Pizza, ice-cream cake, and layered salad were served.


Miss Vivian was never far from where there was food to be had.


Jazz had learned how to do a handstand.


Time for gift opening!



We brought over this tower throwing game, and fun was had playing it, even in the twilight.




Here I am with all three Grands.


Back home and pulling into our driveway, this strange and beautiful cat was sitting there waiting for us. she didn't even run from our car!


The moon was a perfect half at the end of a lovely day.
