Have you seen stand-up paddle boarding? This is outside DSO's condo. You stand up on these enormous surf-type boards and paddle like a canoe. It's supposed to be great exercise. The boards are (supposedly) very stable. The owner/instructor (in the striped shorts) will even do a headstand on it. Has anyone tried this? I think it might be fun to give it a whirl.
Yesterday DSO powered up the sailboat and under motor we took a ride upriver with his friend Dick and new bride. How cool is that to get married in your 80's? I guess it's never to late for love :)
Lots and lots of heron make their home on the Black River. About ten years ago I saw my first bald eagle circling over the river.
Progress has been made on my rug and I'm nearing completion. I've run out of background wool, but luckily hooker friend Melissa has some I can use. Since I used only one wool, I don't want to reverse hook and add other wools. I love using one wool to get so much variation. The cat is probably 8-10 different dark wools. This was taken without a flash and the colors are pretty close. I wanted a simple face, but I'm not sure about it. I will live with it for a few days and hopefully it will grow on me.
There's still time to enter my anniversary give-away. I will pick the winners on Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
