Wow. That's amazing! We had chicken strips and tater tots... :-)


That trout is beautiful. It reminds me of one of my favorite poems, "Pied Beauty" by Gerard Manley Hopkins. It begins:

Glory be to God for dappled thingsā€”
For skies of couple-colour as a brindled cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim...

And, by the way, is it your birthday, Wesley? I detected some subtle clues in your post. :-)
If so, Happy Birthday, my friend!


Nice poem, Beth.

And, well, actually today (Wed) is my birthday, so thank you for the wishes. I am now officially, gulp, 40. (Also part of the reason for the haircut).


Happy, happy Birthday (40 years wise)to my dear friend!!!
