River Runnin'

I took a day off from work to go play on the river. Quinn and Alea were in a canoe and Kye was my faithful partner. All of them did great, but I was most impressed with Kye's ability to paddle the whole way. It was his first chance to canoe since he turned 6 this year.

I was willing to give Quinn a few tips about steering, but he declined the opportunity.

The river was high so there were a few riffles that were swift and fun to navigate. We saw many turtles, fishing birds and water skimmers. We stopped for a snack and munched on cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, crackers and hummus. We chowed down!

All in all, we spent about 2 hours on the river. Fun stuff.

Lovely Day

I went to a jazz club last week with my dear friend Edna. It was nice to get dressed up and hang out with the girls. While we were groovin' to the music, an old favorite of mine came on. Enjoy:

The Incredible Edible Egg

Look at that: Doesn't it make you feel for the chicken that laid it?
