Reunion at my Place!



Convalescing at my house means sauntering through
the tall grasses and flowers while readying for some visitors ~~~


 Daddy Jim has been rather excited lately
because some friends from the 60's
are coming to visit and to celebrate ~~~ 


45 years ago in 1968 
they spent the summer together
and called themselves the 
The L'Town Gang.


So Jim has been getting the house in order
with newly painted walls,
freshening up the hardwood floors,
and
straightening up the garden where needed.


When he has a goal,
his sites are set.
Look out
that's all I can say.


His pet peeve is buttercup!
I leave it at that!!


Even my next door neighbour, Milo had his eyes on us 
as we appeared to be so industrious.


Mosquitoes are to Daddy Jim
like ants are to honey.


Then from out of nowhere
they appeared
'women'
my favourite people
on the planet!
~~~ Paulette and Dilly ~~~


You are right this is Dilly!
Cool name, eh!!


and this is Paulette,
she has soothing hands
I want you to know.


While they oohed and aahed over the rhodos and other flowers,
I sniffed the grass for munchies.


Mike, Dilly, Paulette and Jim really had a grand reunion.
~~~
There was plenty of food 
and
Jim made a seafood chowder to die for.
 The smiles tell it all!


You know how it is when you haven't seen someone for ages
and you pick up from where you left off
just like it was yesterday?
Well this is how they were the other day!


I, for one
was so happy to be part of their reunion.
~~~
Come again Mike, Dilly and Paulette.
My backyard is always open!

  1. That's how you know true friends--when you just pick up from yesterday!

    Seafood Chowder. SHE was going to make a plain old bacon and potato chowder today. Sounds drab now.

    Have a great reunion....and Sophie be sure to let everyone know that reunions mean treats for dogs.

  8. That is sure a great shot of you
    At the end in view
    And such a colorful zoo
    Pat has no green thumb so he'd chew the grass with you

    1. We could munch down on some blades of grass
      maybe not like the upper class
      but on our lowly 4 some
      and as a rule of thumb
      not to over do it
      for projectile gagging all, bit by bit

    1. Flower Power, girlfriend!

      Pre-Disco, whoa, so that means bell bottoms and tattered clothes. They did have a fun time during the 60's. Hard to believe that this era has come and gone because it changed a lot of society!!

    1. Hi IngerDoodle!

      Age is in the eye of the beholder ~~ and all I see is happiness and good feelings all over their faces.

      I'll tell everyone how you felt ~~ they'll smile I'm sure!

      Cheers!

  13. Sophie, Your backyard is a paradise. I really can't believe Jim has a vendetta against buttercups. Surely, you mean dandelions which are on my personal hit list. Good friends will always be there - I bet it was great for Jim to see them after all those years. Tell Ron that his pics are great!

    1. I'll tell Ron, Barb ~~ he always appreciates constructive criticism.

      You see buttercups invade longer than dandelions. Jim does dispense with them too.

      We all love our little oasis!!!

      Sophie
