While the Cat's Away...

This mouse will play.

Roger is in California getting his flight physical and I'm finally putting the rock veneer on the greenhouse. How does it look?

Morning coffee on the beach.

Roger taking the 'Squirt' out for it's maiden voyage. Captain Roger relaxes and waves to the on lookers. I wonder who is piloting the boat?

Priest Lake Trip (Reeder Bay campground Friday September 14th)

We set out in our trailer this morning for a little R&R at Priest Lake. This will be our second trip in the trailer. It's nice to get away from the 'ranch' and all of our 'projects.

We were even able to get the little boat atop the truck so we could take both the boat and the trailer with us.

We got the trailer situated in it's new home (at least for the next four days) and set up the canopy and the generator.

With bottle of wine in hand we walked down to the beach to enjoy the tranquility of the moment with our neighbors Renee and Garth (not Brooks).

This is an interesting site. It looks like the head of one of the statues on Easter Island peeking out of the sand. If you don't look too close that is.

Roger and our neighbors will launch the boat tomorrow. This will be a fun four days.

The last blossoms of the season. The deer have taken their toll on the flowers.

Roger's EV (aka Sparky) has been completed for about a month now (minus the non essentials) and he's very proud of it. Everyone in Pullman, except one guy at Pullman Hardware (now he knows too) know about the car. I guess it's been quite a hit with the community.

Anyway, someone suggested that Roger put Sparky in the Palouse County Fair. Sounded like fun (to Roger that is). I've already had the experience of sitting for four days watching people walk by and it's lots of fun... NOT. Roger is the more gregarious of this duo so he was able to socialize with others attending the fair.

I think, if we do this again, we will both attend the next fair. I will display (and maybe sell a couple) paintings and Roger can display and talk about his latest and greatest invention. The car will be a year old by then and I don't think it will be the foremost object of his affection then. We'll see...

Roger's EV display at the Palouse County Fairgrounds this last weekend. Imagine four days of fun and sun. I joined him on Sunday.

Roger thought his car looked really cool next to this large combine. We drove the Sparky over to the combine and snapped this photo on Sunday before the fair began. We passed the combine lumbering along the road on our way to the fair last Thursday. This was not an easy thing to do considering it's as wide as the two lane road.

Another photo of the combine. Just so you can get some idea of the size of this piece of equipment please notice the front wheel. Hi y'all...

And I had a thrilling conversation with one of the sheep. The discussion involved why he should not eat my raffia hat.

Honeysuckle-Roses & Glad

It's getting towards the end of the season but there is still beauty to be found in the gardens...

I've never seen berries on honeysuckle before. I guess it's never too late to learn something new.

The roses are getting tired but those that still bloom are so fragrant. I guess it's the struggle to survive that makes them sweet.

The hummingbirds enjoy the gladiolas. I just with I could catch a photo of one dining on the flowers. They move so quickly.
