People usually want to see the detail of the dress, so here it is. Like I said… the dress was lovely. It was made by a Portland designer. Her shop in on 23rd and we all would recommend her highly. It was the perfect dress for Mary. She looked beautiful in it.
These little dudes were both torment and entertainment for the pups during the camping trip. Two encampments, two to three feet from each other. One chipmunk would pop it’s head out, scouting, he’d waive his little claw or paw or whatever you call it and then yell… run! There’d then be this rush of feet and fur scampering from one encampment to the other. Back and forth this went on. Day after day. They’re in the fox hole in this shot, getting ready for their next move.
Last Saturday we also stopped by Mom and Don’s place after lunch with the siblings. We were on a wood gathering mission. After last year’s winter we knew we needed to be better supplied with wood in case we experience another joyous long lasting power outage. So wood gathering we went. Mom and Don have quite the stock pile. They lost some big limbs in the storm last year and have also taken a few trees down themselves. It didn’t take us long to load up.
After loading I took a wander around the property with my camera. There’s always something to take pictures of there. Just so happens the wildflowers are blooming. It’s so lovely right now. Their whole place is actually. They are really turning it into quite the show place. Better Homes and Gardens is going to show up any minute.
It was raining yesterday, and it’s raining today. Not really that new for our lovely state this time of year. After all, the rain is part of what makes it so lovely in the first place. I was wandering out in the yard with my camera yesterday and captured this one. I love the geranium trying to open and the water drops all over it.
The theme for the week is sad. I was looking through some recent shots and found this one. This flower looked sad to me. Or maybe it’s just that summer was ending and that was sad. I’ve recovered now and am fully into autumn so it’s all good. Like this shot though.
My apologies for not playing the last several weeks. Summer will do that to a person. Seems we were busy busy busy. Especially since getting our new little girl. Scroll down for some candid shots of her. She’s beautiful.

Last weekend I took some flower shots (what’s new), we went out for dinner for Maggie’s birthday, we took in the Melissa Etheridge concert (it was rockin’ excellence), and Karen finished up building her table. She rocks. I’ll include some pictures of it here in a moment. I’m so proud of her. It’s WAY cool.
The theme for this week’s photo hunt is wrinkled. I took this one in April of this year. It’s a close up of my brother, he’s younger, 20 months younger, so that should tell you that I have more wrinkles than he does. I’m always taking strange photos. This one was taken as we waited with friends to get into a great breakfast place, called Gravy, on Mississippi Avenue. Their specialty is… yep, you guessed it, gravy. I think my bro looks good here. You can’t see all of him, but if you did you’d say he looked good too. He’s a stud. Notice the wrinkles are mostly smile lines. It’s a genetic thing… we all smile. All the time. It’s sickening.

The theme for this week’s hunt is colorful. I was perusing some of the flower pictures I’ve taken and came across this one, a particular favorite of mine. I love the bright orange and green in this. I like it so much in fact that I just made it my header photo. And, a little confession, I posted this already… as my July 25 photo on my photoblog, image – ination.

Yeah, another flower shot. I love taking them, it’s obvious.
We had a great weekend actually. Got some yard work done at our rental property, bought some supplies so Karen can make an adirondack table to go with the chairs on our front deck, watched a ton of Olympics coverage (that whole men’s 4 X 100 relay… wow… we were high fiving each other and screaming like mad), played with Weston a bit, and just enjoyed hanging out at our place. Nice.
