The United States White House - the House of the People. Our sitting president recently told some golfing buddies that the reason he spends so much time on his golf courses is that the White House is "such a dump". Really? REALLY? As a patriot of the USA I beg to differ. Six years ago we visited Washington DC and my sister Denise arranged for us to visit the White House. It was one of the most memorable events of my life.
This home is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. It's full of wonderful historic antiques and art. I'm heartbroken that the man who is now occupying this amazing place speaks with such disdain about it. :-(
Dayle and I in front of the Lincoln Memorial. It occurred to me that I hope no memorial will be made of this president. The week before last was one disaster after the next with our president and his cabinet. People are dropping like flies in his circle. One guy is hired, who insults two of the other guys, they are forced to resign, then he is fired. It's like a soap opera, but worse.
Dayle had his MRI on Wednesday, the doctor's office called yesterday and told him that he has a significant bulge on his disc L-4 & 5 vertebrae. The next step will be an injection of steroid cortisone. We are hoping that this helps. Wish him luck.
Last night Caleb came in and said "Grandma, there is a family of bunnies in the yard!". So I grabbed my camera. I missed capturing all four of them, mom, dad and 2 babies.. but this is Mom I think and she has a big divot out of her ear. Probably from an owl or coyote who tried to capture her at one time.
I spotted some orange in the woods and zoomed in to get a shot of these berries next to a big Douglas fir. I just googled it, it's a Rowan Tree, also called a Mountain Ash.
Our skies are full of smoke from wild fires all over the Northwest and mostly Canada. They've even closed down the Pacific Crest Trail. So, my moon shot is hazy.
We're trying to stay cool.. but look how hot it was when I got out of the pool and was heading home! Sheesh!
I will be heading to the pool again today. Travis is taking both boys crabbing this weekend. They leave when he gets off work in a few hours. Kristi will drop them off at the Nabisco factory and off they go. I should have some fun photos of their trip by Monday. Do you have any fun weekend plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
