Right of passage

I keep a cheap .177 air pistol under lock and key in my workshop, it's useful for dispatching birds that have flown into windows and also bringing down helium balloons from the ceiling of the parish hall (balloons and ceiling fans don't mix).

Today I needed it for the latter reason, and once the balloon was burst and back at ground level CJ and I went out back to shoot a few tin cans-  he's a surprisingly good shot... guess it's all those video games ;)

Lit from within

At the movies to see the live Python simulcast. We're in the intermission now, and if you go out to pee, when you come back everyone's faces are lit by their phones :)

A very pleasant day...

...to be in the woods with my dog :)

Now that's what I call a burger!


Kathie took Jackie to a great new diner in Port Chester for breakfast this morning, round the back of main street.


Jackie was so impressed she took me there for dinner tonight, and I had a wonderful burger :)


Yes, you read that right, 2 burgers with cheese, bacon, fries and mozzarella sticks, all in a wedge. Add a Dr. Pepper and a side of fries and I was a happy camper!

Before:

And after:

July in NY


Now I am back at my home computer I've had time to edit some of the pictures I've taken over the last couple of weeks (and some my Dad took are thrown in too). Click on the picture to see the FaceBook album (and no, you don't need to join FB to see it).

Thunderstorms and fireworks

There's safety in numbers ;)

Thunderstorm!

And here it comes :)

Severe thunderstorm warning!


We heard the thunder rumbling in the distance and getting closer, so we jumped out of the pool and battened down the hatches as best we could as quickly as possible... now we're just waiting for the storm to break.

The tree bridge is no more

I don't know, I stay away from the woods for a couple of days and everything changes :)

Maybe they used some of the money from the film crew to finally deal with this...?

Grandpa...

...has found a friend :)

Pool

Even the grumpy teenager goes in for a dip when it's this hot :)
