May 20 – Olifants

I was up and ready to go in plenty of time for the drive this morning. While waiting I took a picture of the moon.   Three of us were registered and then one more from last night’s drive asked if she could come along too. Luckily, the driver was the same this morning as… Continue reading May 20 – Olifants

The Birds at Lockport

I took a drive to Lockport this morning to see how the ice was on the Red River at the locks today.  Not much ice around there, but some Gulls, Geese, Crow and a  Bald Eagle entertained me while I looked.

I decided to turn right when I got to the path and see if I could walk to the perimeter highway.  Unfortunately the path ended before the highway, so I turned back to see how… Continue reading I Went for a Walk

Flower & Moving Updates

My tall Iris flowers are now out.  The only problem with the tall Iris plants is that they go down in the wind, and wind is certainly not uncommon here. I got a couple of pictures a few days ago and then I took one picture this morning after they were mostly on the ground.… Continue reading Flower & Moving Updates

Whew!

OK – it finally looks like I have survived the cold of the century.  For the last 3 weeks I have been practically down and out with the nastiest cold I have ever had.  I continued to work – since I need a paycheque to survive, but had a constant supply of Tylenol and/or Advil… Continue reading Whew!
