MIKE & SUSAN HI-JACK MY BLOG


 Mike & Susan
^click^
I showed them how I could levitate Mr. Orangie
while I stood on 2 legs.
Cool, eh !


I also showed them that "TAILGATE PARTIES"
can be set up anywhere
even if there isn't a party.


Apparently, Ron does weird things with his right hand fingers.
Look at them!


With Peggy's Cove nearby we took in the view
just before I dove into the pond to fetch Mr.O !


I found an ol' yeller tennis ball in the cracks of the rocks.
Mighty air-conditioned and soggy!!


Ron was taking pictures of his brother Mike as he
managed the boulders.


Later we arrived at Queensland Beach
well known for it white sandy beaches.
This beach is very popular in the summer time.


Ron and Jim used to swim here all the time in the 70's
and returning brings back so many memories!


Ron is holding Mr. Orangie.
"When is he going to throw it?"


Another day we visited downtown Halifax.
Ron said that one day he was standing on this corner
and saw/met 5 people that he knew.


Mike, Susan & Ron visited the Halifax Pubic Gardens
while Jim and I walked the perimeter.
The roses apparently were prolific inside
just look at these!


Sometimes I would look through the wrought iron fence 
and see Ron, Mike and Susan meandering around.
Ron saw me!


This was the best visit because Ron and Mike
living so far from each other
finally had a chance to spend some time together.
Life throws curves for us all
and these 2 have had their curves to follow.
I really like this photo
because
the 2 brothers are learning from each other again.

~~~

THANK YOU!!
Thank you Mike and Susan for sending these photos.
You are the best!

    1. We both have enjoyed our creative sides all our lives. Mike has taken many more pictures than me and has a really good eye. I'm trying to get him to share them on a site. Still working on that, though!

    1. Rocks are like blades of grass, they are everywhere ~~~ you should see the pictures Ron took of some rocks on the beach and then he set to work to PS them. One looks like a moon in the sky. He said he'd share as soon as possible.

    Love,

    1. Hi Barbara ~~ so happy to see you were able to leave a comment. I have my parameters set so that it keeps spam out of my world and what I've found is that if a person isn't tech savvy they can't leave a message ~~~~ I am so glad you are tech savvy and that it tells me others can do the same thing. I'll be spreading the word for certain.
      Glad that the pictures brought back great memories for you from the Disco era!!!

    2. Hey Ron I am not tech savvy at all - perhaps something is wrong with your parameters? Maybe your filters have been turned off? I love Sophie's blog :)
