Shorter than Usual.......


I learned about skippers from friends on the blogs.  The zinnias are busy with skippers and painted ladies feeding on them. There are other flower gardens in the area so the larger butterflies are finding plenty of places to feed.

It is the last day of August.  It has gone by fast and I am assuming September will do just the same thing. We have never been here in the fall so it will be a new experience for us. I am seeing a couple of flocks of pelicans off the far end of the lake.  They migrate through here and I did see a few of them flying last week while I was crossing the mile long bridge. I have a couple of fingers taped together and I almost wrote penguins but I did catch the mistake.

We had a nice evening last night as the neighbors were outside while i was out with Barney.  The one neighbor collects older Schwinn bicycles and he was out with his son trying out a newly reworking of a beautiful red bike.  It was dark but the street lights made it to be nice. The bike shinned in the street light and my neighbor Doug polished things up beautifully . His son was actually there to help him tune up the bike for him. Doug is older than me. So it was son helping dad with his bike.

I don't have plans for today.  I know there are things that will present themselves to me for work to get done.  It will be another warm, muggy day today.  I can do work int walk out basement for sure but I don't have a specific thing to do.  I can actually walk around in the workroom/furnace room as most boxes are emptied and plastic bins are stacked inside of themselves.  The organization is not really there yet but I plan to work on that as time goes by.  I hope everyone out there is safe and all will have a good day. Thanks for stopping by today.

What an adventure you will have coming! The seasons at your new place! Wow, I have never seen a real pelican. Your skipper and zinnia are beautiful, I think that is my favorite today.

There were plenty of skippers and painted lady butterflies on our flowers when we lived in VA, so it was nice to see them here on post, Larry. Sounds like your neighbor keeps busy and I was wondering if he sells the bikes or just works on them for the fun.

Always fun to experience the seasonal change in a new home. I look forward to you sharing photos. Your skipper photo is so colorful and pretty and shows up well on your blue background. Having a dog to walk is a great way to "meet and greet" neighbors. Theo is the reason we have met and visited with many neighbors. Those bicycles sound fun.
