Abby is so excited....

The Obama administration today has cleared the way for routine commercial use of small drones. The decision comes after years of struggling to write rules that would both protect public safety and free the benefits of a new technology.
Abby wants to catch one!!

The gnomes

have planted another flower that I don't know what the heck it is. Nowhere else in the yard do any
of these flowers show up except in the gnome gardens!

ran and finished a half-marathon today. He has done a marathon before also. This is after 8 lung collapses and 3 major lung surgeries. One in South Korea (that was an 'adventure'). I am still stunned at what he has been able to accomplish and very proud and very happy.
This picture is off a water hyacinth I brought in the house. It is celebrating :-)

This! This is how it starts.

" In the city of Perm, Russia, a robot escaped from a research lab into the city center and began blocking traffic. The good people at the Promobot company say they were doing movement testing on their robot, also called Promobot, when it escaped.
After an engineer forgot to lock the gates of the testing area, Promobot seized its opportunity and managed to make its way out of the lab and began wandering the busy street outside. The engineers only noticed the robot was missing after about 45 minutes; by then the robot had already attracted a crowd of curious onlookers. Promobot's mad dash for freedom was foiled when its battery died and it began blocking traffic. Police were called to help, after which an engineer from the company showed up to wheel it away."
