It's a Crazy, Beautiful World and Time is Tight

WUclassic is gone for good as of May 4. I've been a paying member for 13 years, but it doesn't look like I'll make it to 14. I find I can get better weather info from local TV meteorologists and the NWS than I can from WU. That wasn't the case a few years ago, but it is now. Navigation of the blogs has gone downhill. As to the photos, well, I won't even go there because I can't.

I will occasionally bear the discomfort of WU to visit some of my WUblo...

Closed for Repairs

Remember my dental bridge that failed back in January? On March 11, I go for oral surgery, to have the broken root removed and get a bone graft and two implants. My mouth is too small for the three implants I would have preferred, so when all is done, I will have a new, smaller bridge made. The time-frame laid out by the surgeon tells me I will be lucky if all is done and healed by Thanksgiving. Between now and then, it will be soft food only :^{

With all...

Duck!

This morning, we got a call from the mechanic in Toledo, saying he was done with the scheduled maintenance on my car. Always conscious of my 365 challenge on Flickr, I took my camera. After getting the car, DH went on home in the truck and I headed for South County Park.

Just across the Cowlitz River from Toledo, South County Park is centered around a former gravel pit that is now a lovely 14 acre pond. It is stocked with fish, has a public boat ramp...

Trees

Monday morning, I heard the sound of chain saws nearby. The sound continued into the afternoon. On Tuesday, I heard the powerful engine of some piece of heavy equipment. I went outside to investigate and saw that a neighbor was having the tall fir trees around his double-wide mobile home cut down. It seemed the sensible thing to do, as one fell in a storm last year and two the year before.

Chain saw and heavy equipment noises continued Wednesday and T...
