Tuesday Tidbits


Back in my cabin in the woods for a few weeks.  Nice to be back.

++++++++++

I refuse to build a fire in the woodstove.  OK, Northlandia, you win.  The heat is on.  I went out and grabbed some wood and warmed up the cabin.  I've been gone a while but isn't it supposed to be shorts weather in mid-May is it?  

++++++++++

Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Wombie for picking me up at the airport.

Quite an unusual sunset view while driving back from a visit to BFE last Friday.  A front went through with dark overcast skies.  In the West was a thin sliver of this pink/red sky.  Yeah, I know - lousy pic.  Why didn't I just pull over? 


++++++++++



Instruction on the seat ahead of me on the Allegiant Air flight from Paradise.  Who uses "whilst"?  Well, oddly enough, Brendan peppers his conversations with the word when appropriate, but generally speaking the word conversationally is not common in the US.  It is an archaic word but a cool one.  Glad, and a bit surprised, to see it.

My bike is somewhat in pieces while it sat all winter with a battery tender.  But that's OK since it has been too cold to ride anyway.  The old car is well - no mice that I have seen - and will attempt to start it this week sometime.   

++++++++++

Friday was Beer Belly night in downtown Emerald City and then over to BFE, and Saturday was graduation party for Shelley Willett in Knoxville at Big Katz and a short stop at BFE again.  Sunday was a day off and yesterday Mr. And Mrs. Wombie adn I went up to Quad Cities for the heck of it.  All this to say I haven't done much photographically and am running out of posts.  The next few days will certainly be spotty but as soon as it gets a bit warmer up here I'll take the camera and see what we can see around here.  

++++++++++


This is Shelley "The Professor" Willett who graduated from Western this week and invited some friends and family over to her celebratory bash in Knoxville.  Not sure if I'm more family or friend but very grateful to be able to be a part of it.  Like Kenzie, I can't imagine the stress and difficulty of juggling family, work and college.  Congratulations.
