I looked at the weather this morning and thought about how antsy I was, so I headed out under the almost-cloudless skies (instead of waiting until the possibly rainy afternoon) and looped the lake at H4WP.
The landscaping crew has been through, and all the decorative grasses are cut to nubbins. I was surprised this pair of Canada geese and a mallard were hanging out. Doubt if the great blue heron (aka the denizen) will hang here for a while.

That’s a bad case of winter-skin. I’m not sure lotion/creme will fix it….

I am not sure what was in the “Essence of Peaches” tins; was it peach puree? whole peach chunks? the equivalent of what we call peach nectar today?

Recommend the show at Fort Jackson, next time you’re in Savannah. The sign of US80 says “Cannon Firings!!!” Pay attention to the three exclamation points…it’s our theory that that’s the major clue…. Our fellow in blue (reenactor) was FAN-tastic, and got all of us “volunteers” to march and otherwise participate. Sooooooo fun.

Mighty sharp…that is, the nephews, and also the piranha we saw in one tank at the GA_Aquarium. Which was totally packed by the way, so my dosimeter on humanity is through the roof, but beginning to drop since we left the peopled-zone around three this afternoon.
Pretty darned fun day all around, in spite of the intensity/magnitude of human-crush, augmented this day by rafts of cheerleaders…rah rah sis boom bah.

Attended a funeral today, and was reminded how similar Episcopal services are to those of their rejected parent, the Catholic church.
I still don’t get the cannibalism imagery—the body and blood stuff….

“There’s a lot of hoo-rah,” I hear. Not that I understand the strategy-d’-football.
Not in my world. I have a a brand-new photo of a leaf that I think may be castor bean (and thus poisonous), and a #fitbit that won’t update (I’m taking it as temporary, but for now temporary is lasting more than an hour—hrrrumph). This may be just my personal narration….
Does it make sense that I’m flashing back on a view into Monte Carlo from an overlook (not from a movie), or is it really that I’m dodging anxiety generated by reading Pickett’s Charge by Charles McNair? [Enquiring minds want to know….]
Oh, geeze; I think I was off on a Elmore-Leonardian hallucination. Or something.

Out in the park to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine…I noticed many two-dog-walkers. Usually, solos predominate, but today I saw a lot of doggie duos—one was even a matched pair of sisters (or so they seemed…).

Last weekend when we walked the BeltLine, there was a constant flow of pedestrians, and a few bicyclists. Today, almost no one.
BTW, flag flying in the rain? I thought that was a HUGE no-no.
[Pause to G00gle.] Ah, it’s okay if it’s an all-weather flag. Assuming this is that kind. I could hear it flapping; it was really snapping in the breeze.
