Day Twenty - All's Fair




Tonight's my last night in Washington for three weeks. Bright & Early tomorrow morning I will be winging my way across these United States to far off Missouri where kith and kin await. Alas, Kristin will not be able to join me for a couple of weeks, so tonight we took the opportunity to visit the Puyallup Fair. So tonight you get another image of Kris and I having a bit of a lark before our brief (but all too long) separation, and a video of us on the carousel.

Tomorrow... tomorrow is all about multiple connections at unfamiliar aerodromes... not to worry though, I have layovers at each in excess of an hour, so I've plenty of time to get to my new gate. Billings, Montana then Minneapolis Minnesota and finally Kansas City, Missouri await the trod of my travelling toes...

Day Nineteen - Fly me away...



I'm heading out to Big Mo. Updates will be infrequent 'coz the parents are on dialup and Blogger's slow on the dialup. But I'll be taking a pic a day and post 'em when I can. Fear not...

Day Eighteen - Warrrior Poet


This one's a photo manipulation. During a power outage awhile back, Kristin & I huddled around the oil lamps and fireplace and donned our warmest robes (hence the lighting and the hood) and Kristin took a bunch of pictures, playing with the low-light settings on the digital camera. So this one's a joint effort, photo by Kristin, Photoshop by Scott.

Today was kinda' dreamy anyway, so this really is fitting. Kind of went through it in a haze and now I can't sleep (again) and looks like I won't be anytime soon anyway (again) so here it is 3:00 am or so and there's no sign of the Sandman. But that's ok, if I see him, I got my trusty Lightsaber!!!

Day Seventeen - Date night

Kristin & I visited our favorite fish & chips joint in Gig Harbor and went to see Stardust last night. It was a good movie, good food, a great chance to unwind from some of the stresses of the day...

My beloved wife...




And a pic by my beloved wife...

I swear there are a thousand photographs of my feet floating around...

Day Sixteen - The Web

Sorry for posting late. It was a difficult night last night...



It rained yesterday morning, tumultuous downpour from leaden clouds. Then, of a sudden, the sun split the clouds with brilliance. Small water droplets shone like diadems on the web of a spider or the petals of the last few daisies for the year.


It was breathtaking and I thought I'd share...

Day Fifteen - Reading Material




It's raining. Which means it's time to curl up with the cats and read a book.

Day Fourteen - Accidental Florals


By my reckoning, this was our third gardening season here at the house and we've had a real spate this year of Flowers We Didn't Plant! It stands to reason that bulbs will lie dormant for awhile and then spring up where no flowers were before, so that explains the narcissus and gladioli, but this year we also got some odd things like petunias, pansies, and poppies where none have been for the past two years. So in a really lush year, the garden's color-scheme was interspersed with rogue flowers, adding a delightful bit of randomness to my plantings!
