A Mixed Bag

Under the heading, strange things seen while attending a funeral…

This public telephone sign is slowly being swallowed by the sycamore tree outside the tavern where we had the luncheon after my husband’s uncle’s funeral. (How’s that for a run on sentence, like something you shouldn’t do with grammar.) Weird huh? I thought so too.

Now instead of a sign saying “Public Phone”, it says…” ic one”. We were told people have been trying to buy the sign out of the tree but the tavern owner will not sell. I think he should sell tickets for viewing this anomaly of nature.

Here, finally, is the baby ensemble for your approval. My husband continues to say it looks like a clown outfit and I shouldn’t give it to the intended newborn. I am still not sure. I think the accessories tone it down a bit, and it is for a baby who will probably only wear it once, if that often.

What’s your judgment now, still too clown-like, cute, or throw it away and start again?

Just for the girls… a little front garden action. I will take some more pictures of the tulips tomorrow. They look really good this year. It has been a lovely spring in every sense of the word. Beautiful sunny days followed by wonderful cool nights. The flowers are just loving this as are the gardeners. The tulips look fantastic. And the forget-me-knots are starting to bloom, so pretty with the tulips.

A boy and his King Kong. He is very territorial about his Kong and will only share with someone who he knows will fill it back up with treats , that someone is me. Thus is true love earned.

It was a perfect day on Sunday and great friends came to help finish the mulching of the blueberry bushes. After the hard work was done Sasha tried out her fly fishing skills in our pond. She has been taking fly fishing lessons and tying flies lessons most of the late winter. Being a girl after my own heart, she showed up the boys and caught the first bluegill. However, also being a girl she didn’t want any part of taking it off her line. That is what men are for right?

Isn’t she the cutest angler, evah ?
