Soft Boiled Eggs

When they were in Morocco recently the Walkers were served eggs in little egg cups. They brought some cups back and we used them this morning.
Paige and Graham each had 3 eggs and Evelyn had 2.

Owl

Remember the twin owls that Stephanie posted about?
Here
The tree that the owls hatched in died so we moved the nest-box to another tree in the front yard. Nothing happened for many months but now we have an owl- who looks just like one of the twins- perching in the tree by the box.

Here is yesterday's pic..

Brain like a Sieve

I spent the day today looking for misplaced stuff.

Last night about 6.30 we packed lightly to spend the night at Steph's. I had placed my computer in a sleeve and put it alongside the garage in the alley while I loaded the bag into the car.....forgot it didn't I? Looked for it this morning, not remembering that I had left it, and finally figured I must have not brought it.

At 0830 this morning I went over to look for it and it was still there in the alley. Many people had passed it by and there were even workers at a neighbors across the alleyway.

We swam for a while after breakfast and I took some video and stills. When I went to upload them I didn't have the little adapter. So I went home to get it. I changed clothes and came back on my scooter. Couldn't find the adapter could I?
Back and forth 3 times, Bev tried too and we still couldn't find it. I resolved to just go to the Sony Store and get another....

So I took the camera and thought I would give the search one more shot and -bazoom- I found the adapter BEFORE I BOUGHT A NEW ONE...

Went back to Stephs on the bike and tried to use the adapter and, huh, where's the camera......
Back over on the bike to our house to look for it and no luck. Back to Bev and confess I am at a loss. She gave me a cold glass of water and told me to go back and look in the car..............that's where it was. Gotta tell you, I'm tying strings on everything and tying them to my wrists.

Destin


We went to Destin last week. A 9 hour drive from Houston.
We were pleased to see the beautiful beach as yet unmarred from the oil gusher.

Brian and Sandy have a terrific house on a golf course and we were very comfortable.

Steve and Linda could not be there this year as Linda is recuperating from surgery.
Brian cooked these steaks perfectly

Every year we all would visit this beach rstaurant until it burnt 2 years ago. They opened it up and we restarted our traditional visits...

Jennifer's Party

We helped Jenn celebrate last Saturday. Here's some pics....







This video is starring an old college friend who seems like family to us. Regina is so special.
And she can flop and squirm like a worm.
