And that would be myself and the inimitable Bobby G, who sometimes singlehandedly prove that there is intelligent life in Fort Wayne. Oh, and our respective better halves, of course. Today's get together kicked off with a long awaited presentation to the "Gs" of this:
Story behind: My friend from Australia, Trish Ward (former blogger, too- I woulda linked, but she just jumped out of the game), who as you might notice is a painter of no mean skill, recently ticked "trip across the US of A" off her bucket list. It was in NYC's Central Park she met her first squirrel, and when she posted the finished painting, I said, "I know just the perfect person for that!" You can see more of her work on Facebook on Trish Ward- My Art. They were very happy with the artifact, which will, I am told, will be hung above the master's throne in the living room there at the Fortress Of Reason.
Afterwards, we got reciprocated, notably with a copy of "Doctor Who: The Complete Guide" (which I made it all the way to the Third Doctor on the way home in). Then after pizza and chocolate cake ( these guys really know how to treat guests) we made our way to spend a beautiful day at Foster Park.
|Away we go!|
|Warning: Lots of neat flower pics ahead.|
|Spring has indeed sprung. Right there it is!|
|"Hey, Irma! Friends of yours?"|
|"If I had my sonic, I'd get us in there..."|
|Bleeding hearts... the kind that used to grow in our front yard, not the ones I'd like to Gibbs-slap...|
|Look out, Laurie! That tree's about to grab you!|
|Shooting craps at the gazebo. Well, not really, but it looks that way...|
|"Yeah, they put up this sign- 'Stay off the golf course'- after we walk on the rough for the last ten minutes?"|
|One big-ass leaning tree...|
|The Mighty Bob to the rescue!|
|Bob tries his squirrel-whisperer talents on the local avian population: "Quack, quacky quack..."|
