Good afternoon, FRiends.

I need to work on the Holidays but I need to fix lunch first.
I will share some pix that my son took last year.
These were taken at Pismo Beach during Monarch Days.

Warning ... they are not as good as the Monarchs in the opening. :)









It was a fantastic sight seeing so many butterflies in this grove of trees.

I will be back later.

Have a beautiful Saturday.

Me, too! I’m with you! Godiva’s Chocolate Liqueur is much better.

That is so perfect, Amy, I would love to be in that picture.

Yes, in all the excitement going on, I forgot we have a new month, wow it’s November.

Tonight, we can go back to Standard Time, which I much prefer to “daylight savings.” Woo Hoo.

Personal campaign news from deep behind enemy lines in SoCal....:) About an hour ago, my bus sped by a big old “YES ON 8” demonstration taking place in West L.A. Yes, blink your eyes and rub them, you saw right.

Also, last night, I talked with a Democrat friend who told me a month ago she wasn’t going to vote at all, was sick of politicians, etc. Now, she is firmly in the McCain-Palin camp, very afraid of The Zero.

Also, while wearing my button, I am still being approached by people who say (in low tones) they like it.

It ain’t over til it’s over, FRiends.

That’s exactly what we had except the tree was literally buried under orange and black wings. Awesome sight. This was in southern Ohio in the early 70’s.

Afternoon, Amy and Company.

Awaiting a projected thunderstorm to hit the northern valley. Had lightning and little rain Thurs and our drive back from the VA center in Palo Alto. What a humbling experience to be surrounded by so many fellow vets. Mrsdd said told me we didn't have enough time for me to go around shaking hands with all my comrades, but the will and desire were there.

Thought I'd share a couple more photos from our recent trip north. Here's one taken at Riverfront Park in Spokane, site of the '74 World's Fair...

;

This next one is an interesting view of Mt. Shasta in NoCalif (elev. 14,162 ft), a "halo" on the peak formed by a cloud. This shot is a western exposure looking east. I took pix from the south, west and north of the mountain. It was interesting to see the way the cloud and prevailing winds effected the peak of Shasta...

You got my attention... well maybe the Jack Daniels Chocolate Pecan Pie did it. I won’t say whether it was Pecan Pie, Chocolate, or Jack Daniels that peaked my interest. :)
