When the wind kicks up the little boats look like wild toddlers, rocking and rolling on their anchors.
The bay gets excited, white caps on a normally calm surface.
That long walkway is Taylor dock that leads to the park. It can get dramatic when weather happens and surely will be gone when the big earth quake ( 200 years over due) shakes the PNW down to zero. The tension is mounting, the earth trying to hold out for a better time to let loose. When it does We will be no more. I hope I am elsewhere when that happens, I do not fancy drowning.
Stella picked me up[ and we went to get lunch- a guy playing piano - playing very well, I must say- sitting on a box- his days are numbered, busking with a piano on the street! Surprised his fingers moved so well and beautifully up and down the keys. It is not warm.
Patient little dog , waiting for human.
Seems there have been dog thievery shenanigans going on here, I would never leave my dog unattended. Two have been stolen this week . one has been found and the thief put into the slammer! Thanks to downtown cameras!
The other was stolen from a car, the dog was not feeling well so she was left while the human took the other dog for a hike.
Never leave your dogs!
Stella brought me back home after we had solved the world's problems over lunch, Mr. Crow was waiting for me on the roof, " Human, you are late for my dinner!"
I put some food out for him and he ignored me. So pissed off.
Buck under the Rhody's ,as usual, nice afternoon for chewing, relaxing- until...
the fire Dept, and EMT showed up to care for our neighbor- they did not take him away , left with their defibrillator machine ,smiling so I trust that all is well. Buck took off.
Our neighborhood , once full of children , delightful noise, now is aged, quiet, boring - the most activity is walking to the mail box. Quite a snooze, and that is why the deer like our yard so much I reckon.
Our Birch by the fire truck, is newly split down the center, daylight through the trunk. This will likely be it's last winter.
So, Autumn- pleasant- colorful, with it's sense of dread , up coming elections, the damned supreme Court and the damned GOP, whose numbers are up in spite of their horribleness.
Tha's Umurka, folks.
All of the dumbing down and fear based campaigning has been effective.
No news there.
Here we go! hang on to your hats, it's going to be bloody rocky! Your hats may be all you are left with. Jesus, Mary, and Joe, Buddha, Krishna, and Allah, fairies, angels, and Santa Clause, help us now - we beseech thee!
