As usual, waiting for mom to feed us, to throw the ball, to finish her blog, to give us pats.

Squint your eyes and look in the sky above the left palm tree in the photo above.  See the tiny branch sticking up from the top with a tinier knob on the end?  That’s a bird.  You can see it zoomed up to in the first photo of the mosaic of shots below, all of which depict the word “tiny” to various degrees.  If you click on the first one, you, too, can zoom in on them.

Interstate 90 with not a car in sight? It’s definitely off-season when it comes to tourists in South Dakota!!!This is the main route to Mount Rushmore, The Corn Palace, Wall Drug,the Pioneer Auto Museum and the 1880’s Town!

Even as we approached one of the top tourist attractions in the U.S.?– (Well, perhaps in South Dakota.)–definitely off-season!

Does moulting count as off-season? Cee says so, so so do I. What other sentence have you ever seen with three so’s in a row? Sorry, Cee, for being a copy-cat., but there is no baby in mine! This buffalo snapped in Sheridan, Wyoming, that i just left four days ago.

An almost-empty pier in Ajijic clearly depicts the off-season.

But not as much as the completely empty bar stools do.

Have you ever noticed how a cat always seeks the newest thing in the house to sit on?  In this case, my overnight bag in my nephew's house, under my nephew's cat!

And, of course, it is inevitable that I’d close by saying Happy New Year!!

Gone but Not Forgotten

Gone but Not Forgotten

This is my above-ankle tattoo done a month ago. Now almost completely gone, except for a shadow. Relax. It was a henna tat.

Remember the 200 baby turtles we released into the sea a week or two ago? They are long gone, I hope, but I still think of them every day.

Day of the Dead altars give us a perfect way to remember departed loved ones in a non-maudlin manner. This is my husband Bob who passed away 13 years ago. Yes. He loved very cold Coke and crullers, but I couldn’t find a cruller, so this little pastry had to do.
