Scientists have spent literally no time at all debating the origins and purpose of this wooden structure which appears to have taken at least several men many many minutes to erect.

Recognize These?

The flowers on a very helpful plant - aloe!  Pretty aren't they?  Our hummingbirds like them too.

Great Day on Mission Bay

9 years ago today, on the shores of Mission Bay, we pledged to share our lives together.  I've never made a better decision.

Happy Anniversary my dear!

Oh Lucy.

We said goodbye to our sweet girl late last night.  She was a beloved member of our family and she will be so very missed.

We love you baby girl.

Our squirrel live-trap doesn't seem to attract our squirrel.  Birds and mice, yes, but no squirrels.

On September 11, 2001, terrorists changed the lives of all of us.

Today, I lower my flag in memory of those who lost their lives as a result of the attacks of a few people filled with hatred.

I will always remember.

Is This a Plague?

Ok, so it is just one grasshopper.  Well, four.  At least.  And they do eat a lot.

September Theme Day - People Watching

Working at the San Carlos Community Garden.

The dirt here in our area is awful.  Digging is backbreaking.  But we got quite a lot done in 3 hours!
