Eclipse of Sun ~ Lisa's Birthday ~ Deer Turkey Maggie ~ Quiche Lorraine

Moon phase new... 0% full moon will be June 4th.

Good 47º scattered clouds morning.

I am on my laptop and not a happy camper. My keyboard for my desktop died yesterday. After several attempts with new batteries it's gone. The old keyboard from another computer has the wrong plug in for my current one so it's off to Staples this morning to solve the problem.

Today is the solar eclipse.... viewable from right here in Oregon (prime spots are So. Or and No. Cal) .... we will be watching and photographing... from a "eclipse deck par-tay" at Dee and Dale's later today.
This is an informative video...

OMG, this guy is hilarious.... a British perspective on the death of Osama bin Laden... well thought out and the last 30 seconds are PRICELESS! (Thanks to Wilsonite Ken Heinneman for this)

Yesterday a couple of visitors..... this beauteous young buck (spike)

And Ms. Turkey was sitting in the grass 

(sorry the 'red hot poker is in the way) 

... and of course, Maggie was enjoying the cool grass for a nap....
.... which is exactly what I wanted to do after sitting on the riding lawnmower for 3 1/2 hours! I was ready for the 'home'!!!  A couple more hours to go and all will be mowed. Not today. Maybe tomorrow.

All I know. Hope the clouds go away so we can see the eclipse. Next one will be in 2017. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

Looking forward to tonight's gathering and the viewing of the eclipse. Don't forget your cardboard with the hole in the middle, that is if you don't have the special glasses.
Maggie has quite the life. She looks sooo comfy!
Boy, Cher sure has changed, and not looking that great I may add. Wow!
Quiche Lorraine one of my favs.
Happy Sunday to you, and we will chat later. xo

mmmmLove Quiche Lorraine!

What a pretty lady and a beautiful family Lisa has!

A few years ago Daryl made a killing with Levis. Somewhere he found brand new RED tag Levis and sold them for a nice profit. Many pairs. Don't know WHY they are valuable but guess they are.

Have fun tonight at the eclipse par tay!!

XO Trisha

I know Levis sell for a lot overseas, but right now they don't seem to be moving here. Oh well... Will do re the par tay!xo

You ought to look up Cher's mother's picture. She's the beauty in the family.

Quiches are a family favorite- but trying to do with less crust so the diabetes stays in remission.
