The Day After Valentine's Day...and Animal Wednesday

 A sweet evening it was with DH coming home with three beautiful red roses between his teeth, (his arms were full of his school books and mail) and me giving him the portrait I'd painted of him that morning. He said I made him look better than he  does!  It's nice to still have romance in our lives 32 years into our loving relationship.

Henry could have cared less as he mapped out his territory in the backyard where old vines and bushes had been torn down and cut back recently leaving him what must look like a cat box from heaven.

On Sunday we found these birds at the pier in San Francisco near the Golden Gate bridge.

 I looked and looked, but nary a pelican could I find on this fine day! Wonder where they were?
 Just sea gulls flying high as the sunny day turned dark...
 right before it was time for us to fly on home.


  1. Awwwwwww what a sweetie to bring you Roses. and between his teeth too. I sure hope there were no thorns. lol Yes that drawing is great of him and I love all the other animal photos..especially Henry. HAW

  2. Hey there Lynn! We missed each other at Crissy Field by a few days!!! Next time you and your DH come down, we must try and coordinate!
