Just add water

I thought this was clever.

A boat for sale, billed as 'Waterfront Property'.
For sale for about $650,000 that is....

Walk About

We enjoyed a beautiful day walking around the Riverstone area in town with Lefty. See my two-tone hair better in this shot, Kenny? Those are geese in the pond behind us.

The view from my hammock

Happy Memorial Day weekend.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend as much as we are!

The Frog

Not a tree frog, I'm told, as the toes don't have pads on them. He's about the size of a toddler's fist. I expected something much bigger considering how much noise he is making!

FAN's profile picture

What is this 'profile' picture of Auntie? Bangs look a little long to me, lips too red and NO gray in the hair. Is that really you? I know you just got a new digital camera and had a cell that could snap photos (for a day). How come your 'little' brother is getting older and you're getting younger?

San Diego - Dos Picos Century ride, May 16, 1958

...only it took him 9 days.

Theater Performance

Melissa takes a free community theater class on Saturdays offered by the local high school. Today was the last day and final "performance". It's very low-key, short and casual.
That is Melissa in the back. She played "Robot # 67" as they all plot to escape from the dungeon of their evil master using their unique super powers. See the deep focus in her eyes?

Yes, they call this "acting". Although it's looks very much like a 13-year-old standing on stage in a black shirt in the basic "roll-your-eyes and slouch" position. LOL! :)

(I'm only teasing, and the poor thing has a terrible cold & cough today. What a trooper!) :)

We are home from Mexico and happy to report we are Swine Flu Free. Posted some pictures from our cruise aboard The Mariner of the Seas on facebook, as that is the approved Kenny/Jenny method.

Bar-B-Q 2009

Bar-B-Q Days at the Wrigley Wranch have started for 2009. The ole Barbie was put back in to service this past Sunday with a couple steaks. Accented with some steamed brown rice (well, instant) and fresh garden vegetables (well, frozen and microwaved), it was a meal fit for Kings (well, two retired people). The swallows have not returned to reclaim their nest…yet. So cooking was not hampered by . . .bird droppings.

(Pictures taken last year, the swallow nest is still above the barbie, but unoccupied)

Spring is indeed here. Can teriyaki be far away?

One of our (Lynda's) projects this spring is to transform a 'clump of trees' (as our building contractor referred to them - but he was considering bulldozing them over to set our house in place) to a park like setting where we could sit and enjoy nature while children (precariously)climbed in the surrounding trees.
