photo walk xviii

Water, water everywhere.
But I won't drink a drop.
(From Mill Lake, that is).

O Autumn Light, long November light,
thou Taunter of my Days,
You tease me from behind the glass;
from beyond my cubicle hedge.
Can you wait for me? Will you wait for me?
I'm on my way right now!
You can pose and strut
while I frame the view
Of your honey-hue on my walk.

i love my nephews

The Bargen Brothers were in town this weekend. What is not pictured (and we wished we had a video camera for), was an absolutely hilarious game of Skipbo. Tyler and Riley learned the game Saturday night from Great Grandma and Great Helen. So they tried to teach Uncle Jerry and I. Tyler's (almost 5) rules seemed plausible, but some of Riley's (3 and a half) rules were perhaps not. Riley had us all laughing so hard we were crying, well at least I was. He would tell everyone what cards people picked up and at some point had 12 cards when he was supposed to have only five. His explanations of things were so intense that I'm laughing now just remembering it! (Riley: "The Skipbo card is the most important card in the world!" and "He has a Skipbo card!") The last five pictures show the beach volleyball game in Papa and Nana's living room.

Today I brought my camera to work (hoping that there would be some good light on the way home). This is from Fish Trap Creek.
