when the doctor said

"keep the leg immobilized"
do you suppose this is what he meant?

alas, said the gargoyle,

i'm spending next winter where it's cedar key, maybe.

i'll be waiting a long time

while my knee mends until I can take this walk again

i can't sit up for many minutes at a time
but i'll try to post from my archives and leave comments whenever i'm able.

emma, the dog,

is a little deaf,
but she still knows the sound of a saucy dinner plate being placed on the floor.

skywatch friday: after the snow

winter has a hearty appetite.
it nips at houses and nibbles on trees.
and all the while the sky sighs like a proud parent.

i wonder how many people notice how beautiful it is

how would you like

a sleigh ride on valentine's day?

happy valentine's day, dear hearts

i fear ellie, the little girl next door, may have lost her heart.
this plumed and glittery valentine lay languishing in a snow bank between our two houses.
may this day bring a smile to your hearts.
and to ellie's, too.

and trees sighed
in the pearl-soft light.

frolicking florida-style

i hope you'll indulge me in another day or so of florida photos.

this, in case you were wondering, is not brattcat on a surfboard.
