I saw no bugs to take a picture of on my daily yard hunt, but as I was about to go into the house, I felt a tickle on my ear. Here is the tickler sitting on my shoulder.
Flowers be gone aoon ..
Went to the Home Builders Assoc Home Show yesterday. This is the BIGGEST house I've ever toured. 11000 sq feet & 5 acres.
Gino's mom took this. She called to tell me Gino wants to visit. He either stares the door down till it opens, or she'll let him off the leash and he's on the step, right at the door.
:) sweet little guy...he's a cutie.
Frank, waiting for taco lunch in Canmore.
Visited Orbix Hot Glass yesterday and blew my own glass Christmas ornament. It will be shipped to me and will look something like one of these round ones.
This shot continues to make me smile. From inside a shade hut at the Lagoonarium on Moorea. It was so blissful! Sadly, I've heard it has closed permanently.
Random shot from my Florida ’hood.
@Lars....I've never been there. Did YOU buy any Taxco silver?

@Lars, when was your Taxco picture taken? I was there in 1975. Loved the town. Bought a silver braclet for a friend and a baby spoon for a new niece.
Pretty little gift flower basket from a friend of mine.
Love candy corn but try not to indulge. We used to have it at work mixed with spanish peanuts. Sweet and salty, yummy.
Wheat fields, flying over Washington into Pullman/Moscow .
I was in Taxco in the 80s sometime during Holy Week. An eye-opening experience. One I could never forget.
Socks, I have been eating it with peanuts!! It's a great combination!!!
jrb451, The picture of Taxco was taken in 2005, but I was also there in 2002 and in 1982 or 1981. I used to visit friends in Mexico City almost every year.
Nicole, I did buy some silver there, but the ring I bought appears to be silver plate instead of sterling, and so it no longer looks silver. I think Guanajuato is a better place to buy silver (there are silver mines there), and it is a nicer and more interesting city. Taxco is not as nice as it was in the 1970s and early 80s.
I try not to travel during Semana Santa in Mexico because everything is crowded. Once I took the train from Mexico City to Oaxaca during Semana Santa, and I could only get a Primera ticket and therefore was not guaranteed a seat and had to sit on my suitcase in the aisle. I think this was in 1983 when they still had good passenger trains in Mexico with sleeping compartments.
Anyway, I must have made a big of a scene trying to find a place to sit or a way to upgrade my ticket but finally resigned myself to sitting on my suitcase. Then someone came to me from Primera Especial (where seats are assigned) and told me that two couples had upgraded to a large dormitorio, and so there were now seats in Primera Especial.
So I got to upgrade my ticket and sit in a seat by the time the train left Mexico City, which was nice. The person I sat next to (who had told me about the opening) was from Oaxaca, and I had a nice conversation with him, but he told me that I spoke Spanish too quickly and asked me to slow down - he may have been Zapotec. I guess I had gotten overly excited. I spent so much time in Mexico City that I also developed a Mexico City accent and used the latest Mexico City slang, which people in Los Angeles thought made me sound like a Mexico City snob.
My brother went with me to Taxco in 2005 and took some good videos, which he put on DVD, but he never uploaded them to YouTube.
