Still competing for presidence

The front yard standout, hands down, is a cluster of Asiatic lillies that continues to flaunt its color scheme as well as its fragrance. This bunch bursts out the beginning of July each year and dazzles passers-by until, well, until about now, in spite of the heat and neighborhood water-rationing. Alway hate seeing the petals begin their seasonal cascade.

Soaking up the cool

Late morning and the heat index is climbing. So what do you do? Soak up as much fresh air as possible, in as cool a spot as you can find, before Bellingham temps hit 80 degrees or more for another day.

Boys gotta have their toys

A week into Casey's recovery and the boy is well on his way to catching a Frisbee again. The doctor's orders were to keep high activity on the down-low - no running, jumping, etc, etc. And so far so good. The incision looks great and you'd never know that he ever had surgery, a week and a half ago. So you know what, he deserves a reward, and nothing tops a new stuffed toy.

In fact this latest addition to his pile of Asian imported stuffed animals hasn't left his side for a couple of days.
