Something awaits him
Seen or unseen, he tosses
Skill and hope - fishing
|Walt's palm frond mobile. Make a basket and keep the rain out at the same time.|
|Capt. Pat all Culebra-ized. I complimented her matching John Deere scarf headband|
and she said "Culebra has deer too!" Yes we do.
|Sue and Tuck's cactus at the end of the bar is blooming like mad|
|Shay is blooming too!|
|Walt told me on my way out to stop and look in his front seat .|
A new kind of woven flower. Nice, Walt!
|Saute some garlic and onions (of course). I had some bacon grease I used for that.|
Add the meat and peppers, cook until meat is browned.
I know you could easily make a vegetarian version of this but I didn't.
|Add the beans were added - black and pink (or whatever kind you like).|
I also added cumin, because cumin is my Mexican cooking friend.
|Ok, this looks awful. Cream cheese, sour cream and mashed black beans.|
I cheated and used canned beans. Looks awful, tastes awesome.
|Not enough beans? Add more. Mash. A potato masher would have been easier.|
A blender or food processor would have been easiest
|I wanted to send the food to the party but the casserole missed its ride.|
Instead, it has been an ongoing meal around here. Yes, I'm getting tired of it.
|But then every time I warm some up? It's delicious again.|
|The subtle sky painters were out today|
|This frangipani was just stuck naked into a pot. Now the reward!|
|The boats are so small and this cloud is so big!|
|Crazy twisty turny limbs with eye stunning blooms|
|The moon came up early|
|As the sun got lower, this cloud just got better and better|
|Something about banana blossoms, with the flower down and the bananas up...|
|If I was really fast and really agile, I would have could have climbed on top |
of the third story roof and not had wires in this photo of an extraordinary cloud.
I'm not and I'm not. You've got wires to erase with your imagination.
|By the time the third story balcony was reached I knew |
I was not going on the roof, so just leaned as far out as I felt safe doing.
The cloud had morphed.
It was still beautiful and worth the run.
|Singin' her song|
|She hears the camera (amazing). "Stay away from my babies!"|
|A little grooming to while away the time.|
|Ah, THERE he is!|
|"Where have you been?"|
|"You know how long I've been waiting here?"|
|I'd rather be here|
