I could not resist...

I am a dual citizen - Canada and USA. So I am more than distressed with the relationship between the two countries. This picture of the G7 Summit in the land of my birth cracked me up this morning.

Look for the Good Kids :-)

Coming home from a football game the Boise Idaho Black Knights , a youth football team, came across a car rolled over on its top. The kids jumped out (all about 13 yrs old), turned the car over and rescued the couple inside.
This is what keeps me going - most people are good and willing to step in and help their fellow humans. Like Mr. Roger's mother said (when bad things happen) 'look for the good people'.

The Gopher's Revenge

This neighborhood is just a few miles west of us.
Man decided to take to his flame thrower to encourage some gophers to move.
Started a 20 acre brush fire. Luckily our wonderful fire fighters put it out.
I guess fire season has started.

Bird Talk

Blue jays used to run my parents' morning routine. They wanted their treats first thing in the morning. If my parents dared to sleep in - they flew over to their bedroom window and set up a racket outside their window. Feed us NOW!
I don't think this owl is very impressed..

40,000 pounds of chicken feathers

Overturned on I-5, our main drag, down the west side of WA. In the Seattle area.
Not sure if Eldest had to go by this...
