those two




I was watching his mama taking pictures of him.
It wasn't a planned photo op but her camera bag is slung over her shoulder more often than not...
because she never knows when an opportunity will present itself.


Little Oh wasn't so sure about standing in the spot that seemed made just for him.
Grandpa tried hard to make that spot seem irresistible ...
but that shot his mama was looking for didn't exactly happen.


Instead...
I saw those two that share the same birthday and they made me smile so I snapped away behind the photographer.



May the Lord bless you and keep you...
may the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you...
May the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.

from Numbers 6:24-26

Happy Birthday With love...

a little weeding





We went out to pick some Romaine for supper.
I watched her for awhile and then went to the house to get my camera.


Up and down the rows...
picking out little weeds...
she never once noticed I was observing.


One little hand clutched the offensive inhabitants...
while the other one plucked.



A few months ago I might have made sure she knew which were weeds and which ones we would eventually want to harvest...
but now she recognized the vegetables.



She eventually had company.
He was most interested in what bugs she might be finding...
but she just continued on while he got busy looking for something interesting in the dirt.

all for now...

the car show




A typical Saturday it was not.
He left early in the morning to join the parade of classic cars and hot rods filing into Mill Lake Park.

I stayed home in the morning to clean house and once that was finished I brought our picnic right around lunch time.

We have been to many car shows but this was our first official entry and now I can see what folks do there all day.

There is no lack of friendly folks to visit with.


After lunch we left the hood open and did our own walk around the park to see all the cars and do some visiting of our own.



When we got back I said...
"hey look... they put a Winner card on your windshield."

Of all things!


At 2 pm we joined the other car enthusiasts at the stage and sure enough...
there was indeed a trophy coming his way.

His 1950 Merc built over three years...
got a moment of recognition.

I was happy for him.  


Getting kissed by these two sweethearts...
was just icing on the cake.

all for now...
with love,
