A Little Bit of Everything After a Lot of Nothing

I haven’t written all week.  This is what happened.  Sleep, work, eat  x 5.   I tried to figure out how to expand on that.  You know, like:  “So I slept well and then I went to work.  When I got home I ate dinner and then off to bed.”  That’s the best I could do.

So I waited.   Your Welcome.

Children must line up single file when they want to go out.



I did find this funny:


Life picked up when Patient Husband’s nephew and girlfriend arrived for the weekend.  We took them for a ride up in the mountains.  We said we might see elk or maybe even a moose.



That guy on the right definitely put fear in my heart.

Then there were these two having a difference of opinion.


We found a watering holes for the dogs. 


When we found this lake in the middle of nowhere, Gus was very  happy that he could actually swim some laps.  The other two just hopped from place to place.  No deep end swimming for them yet.


We  found several guys parasailing.  They waited a long time before they jumped off.   What’s the big deal – just jumping off a big cliff!


Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?   No, looks like a moth or dragonfly to me.


During an evening drive, we saw these big guys.  I wonder if their necks hurt after a long day of holding those antlers up.


And now its time to start a new week.  Here’s a bit of advice.  Don’t stare at the sun today.

This is much safer.

Have a great Monday.

Walking, Running, Strolling, Listening, Watching and NOT Swimming with the Sharks

We had a wonderful time at our stay in Cape Cod.   Each morning we would head down to the beach.  The first thing we would check is the Lifeguard flag.



The lifeguard told us that between 6 and 20 great White Sharks pass by the beach each day!  Every day we saw spotter planes flying overhead.  When we saw them circling, the ‘tagging’ boats would head that way and everyone was called out of the water.  You can see in this picture how close to shore they were.

This is what the sharks are chasing:  seals.

These guys are ‘tagging’ the sharks.

The beaches got quite crowded and even the gulls were watching!


On top of many of the houses, including the one we rented, are “widow’s walks”.  The view from ours was great.

On my walks/runs I saw this adorable garden shed:

We also went to some great breakfast restaurants and of course some shopping occurred.


The bay near Chatham.


While resting, we saw ourselves in the mirror of a shop across the street!


On Friday we headed to Provincetown, which is at the very end of the Cape and full of interesting sights.


We then headed to Chatham for the ‘Friday Night Band Concert’.  This is every Friday night and we estimated a thousand people attended.  Early in the day, places are saved.


The weather was perfect and the park was filled with all ages.

Everyone was invited down to the bandstand to march around it, play the Hokey-Pokey and sing “B-I-N-G-O”.  One of the band members was 96 years old and played Somewhere Over The Rainbow beautifully.

This little guy had a great time.


There still IS small town America.


While I’ve been gone, little Finn has been smiling.  A lot.
