It looks like we have other new followers because the number is higher, but the follower grid isn't showing me the new people, it seems kind of out of order, too. If you're a new follower and I've missed you, please leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks!
Yesterday was my grandson, Gavin's, 7th birthday. The family went to dinner at Fish House Vera Cruz last night, my favorite restaurant, and today he is having a big party at their house.
It's been quiet around here the last few days. Hazel and I have gone into town, and into Parker to the Wal-Mart, Carol took me with her to the library and I checked out a couple of mysteries, and I've meet up with the Dingbats (that's what this group has been called for many years) for the social hour, and that's about it.
We had a total lunar eclipse last night, or I guess it was this morning. I tried to get some photos of it, but it's so hard to hold the camera completely still, and I don't have a tripod. I got a couple of pretty good photos, though. I seem to be able to get very clear photos of the moon early in the evening, but not later as it rises.
I took 57 photos of the moon, and these two are the clearest I could get. I just couldn't get the camera completely still so almost all the pictures were blurry. It was pretty cold outside (it was 43 degrees in The Palms, so outside it must have been in the 30s), so I went back in and turned on all my heaters and made a hot cup of coffee. When I went back out, the moon was gone, it must have disappeared behind the mountains. It was pretty cool to see the moon slowly changing from the beginning to the full eclipse.
Don't you love the look on Dumbledore's face? You HAVE to click on the picture to really see it. He's clearly begging his mom - Please, can't I go in??? Carol is explaining that, No, he can't go in. We've got some great dogs here.
And that's about it. Nice and quiet and relaxing - just like retirement should be!
From Me and My Dog, have a great weekend, everyone! :)
