So, they came

In our current digs in Texas, we have a smaller yard than we have had before. But, we are sure glad to have just that. We had to grow most vegetation in the side yard from scratch, where it is shady, but we have done very well so far.

Glad to share a quick snap of a a new visitor to our home!
Here is an attempt at a close-up of our really agile friend :)
They say, "If you build it, they will come".

The simple pleasures of life :)

Have a Happy Weekend!

Happy Deepavali/Diwali to all those who celebrate the Festival of Lights.

Peace :)

Flowers from around the neighborhood

Beautiful flowers from the gardens around our neighborhood.
Walking the dog has many benefits, shall we say? :)

The Bone Collector

A favorite part of my evening is playing with Chaka, just before we go to bed, which is when we she plays the 'The Bone Collector'.
Chaka too looks forward to this part of the evening, by doing all kinds of tricks and playing Herding Dog & Sheep games. During this game, we often reverse roles. Sometimes I am the Sheep and sometimes I am the Herding Dog. Though Chaka is not a traditional Herding Dog, she learned it from her mate, the late Shaggy.

Simple, yet meaningful joys of life. Life is Good!

PS. I am slowly rebuilding my website. Rest assured I will come by all my favorite sites, including yours, soon. Thanks for your patience and patronage.

Small Data Analog Pedometer

Vintage, neat and works if you work it.

I know of the existence of modern pedometers, wearables and apps that might help with measuring and reporting activity levels, among other things, including matching you with the best Dry Cleaners in town, based on your profile 😄

But, I don't want to be bothered with the 98% noise, perhaps < 1% useful data. So, I am intentionally going sensible-tech. Not high-tech. 

Small Data is just fine by me 😄😄

Have a Happy Day!
Peace :)

Cool Dog

How cool is this?

Just for fun, Black Kitty and I rode around the block a few times in our cool kitty-friendly Raleigh Twenty. 

We had a great time though there was no snow :)
