I'm back from the short trip that I mentioned last time, and now, having taken an exactly two-week break, I am ready to get back to blogging. I don't have photos from our family's trip to Canada this time, but I hope to do my next post on that. First, though, I have some major sorting to do, deciding which photos you get to see and which you don't. :-) So please be patient! What I do have today is quite a few miscellaneous subjects. The only way to find out if they are interesting is to keep going!

Me? - I always kept my clothes spotless!
bad enough to make me determined to get vengeance!
a fierce campaign to annihilate them! We used poison, we
wait for them with a BB gun! It was amazing how big and
are enjoying it. Obviously your normal squeamishness is all faked.
obvious that he is supposed to be a cowboy.
It's not a bad idea to cover your ears!
Norman Rockwell (one of my favorite artists, by the way!) that
I couldn't resist showing the parallels.
Thanks for stopping by!

The tallest plants we saw all day.
Thanks goes to Hannah for organizing this delicious lunch so that we wouldn't have to be envious of what was in everybody's personal lunches.
There were more photographers around than myself - some
with better ideas. I copied this idea, but the result was
blurry and therefore not suitable for posting:).
He must not want to take leftover brownies home.
He isn't easily discouraged, is he?
"Hannah, surely you want them. After all, we brought them especially for you since you requested a chocolate dessert."
Hannah wracks her brain for a polite refusal.
Food on the bus?!! You should have seen the sign in the bus:
"If you must eat on the bus, don't leave crumbs, clean up
after yourself, etc..."
