this morning brought thunderstorms and rain – do you suppose Mother Nature reads my blog and read my bitching yesterday? I was watching this morning’s news and some areas of Long Island had flash flooding. We must have received the outer edge of whatever they got.
Did I tell you that D#2 has taken my camera? She was invited to go to Maine with a girlfriend who has a family cabin up there. She asked if she could take it and of course I said okay – she is a much better photographer than I. (Guess what she’s getting for Christmas ….. or graduation?). Anyway that leaves me with a the other camera and I don’t believe I can do justice to Babette with it. I mean, I can’t do justice to it with the camera D#2 took! So fiber pictures shall have to wait until next week. Or until I can’t stand it anymore.
Speaking of D#2, she did not pass her driver’s test. : ( She was temporarily devastated. The tester told her she was a really good driver and he wished he could pass her, but she hit the curb during the parallel parking phase. ergh! She has scheduled a re-test for September and my friend Peggy is going to give us some intensive parallel parking lessons.
Yes, us. Did you know that this is genetic? Hadn’t you heard I can’t parallel park? I avoid it at all costs and won’t drive to places if I think I will have to do it. I have been known to do it, and sometimes do it well, but it is such a hit or miss proposition that I try very hard to never have to do it. Yes, I know Onslow is so small, I could just get out and lift him into the spot! So Peggy has volunteered to give both me and D#2 some lessons! she is a brave woman whose lobotomy scar hardly shows at all! I kid, I kid! you can kind of see it when she wears her bangs to the side! ;)
how about some kitchen pigs?
