You may remember when I posted this awhile back. It is a man and his little dog made from car parts. The dog's head is a muffler. It sits in front of a a small corner garage.
Now they have added a couple new items! This bench is made from truck mufflers.
But I don't recognize any of the parts in the fancy bike.
“I think there is an element of magic in photography - light, chemistry, precious metals - a certain alchemy. You can wield a camera like a magic wand almost. Murmur the right words and you can conjure up proof of a dream. I believe in wonder. I look for it in my life every day; I find it in the most ordinary things.”

Hi everyone; I am back! And so glad to be visiting again. After putting in a new hard drive, my computer is lightning fast! But it still kept losing it's connection every few minutes. And finally lost it completely. Because it worked fine in the computer tech's office, we know it was likely not the computer's fault, but the connection somewhere. So they sold us this:
It is a little plug-in external connector. As long as it flashes blue, it is working and connecting. So I am very happy to be blue!
Home is where the wi‑fi connects automatically.

Remember my two posts showing the colorful murals of Richmond? Well, murals are not the only color Richmond has. It seems that everything there is colorful!

The restaurant we all ate at had butcher paper on the table, and crayons. So the little ones could color while they waited. Jazz sat beside me, and drew this picture of us together. I have lovely sharp teeth and long eyelashes!
She also drew this picture of a fish tank that she copied from a coloring paper.
And she wrote me this sweet little note.
I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

Tonight we celebrated two birthdays! Our youngest granddaughter and her mom have the same birthday! We went out to eat at a place called The Fishin' Pig.
Melissa ordered fish tacos, and Phil and Mike got brisket sandwiches.
When they brought Jazz's dessert, the staff sang Happy Birthday! She loved it, but was embarrassed a bit.
Then back home to open presents. Here she is hugging a stuffed owl.
I got them both these cute unicorn headbands. Found them at the Dollar Store!
And the two men in my life, husband and son.
Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.

I am back! I had been getting the blue screen of death; so the computer place gave me a new hard drive. That was so much cheaper than buying a new computer!
We worked this jigsaw puzzle a few weeks ago. It had THREE different sized pieces! Small,
medium, and large, a different size for each snowman. Have you ever seen one like this?

Here are the rest of the murals we saw in Richmond. Unlike my last post, most of these seem to be a bit more thoughtful and deep.
No, there is nothing wrong with your eyes, this is how the mural actually looked! I sure wonder what it means.
Again with the raindrops on the windshield.
