The Cats Came Back

Hilo out there!

The Forderers have safely landed back home. VERY NICE WEEK! The cottage was in the middle of the woods, very quiet and relaxing.

There was moonlight on the water.

There were a thousand million little frogs that looked like they were hand painted. That my boys manhandled and chased and caught and kissed and wondered at.

There were tons of deer.

Jay got to read too, once. I took a picture so it would be a bigger memory for him, because it only lasted about forty five minutes.

But he is a fisher, not a reader. So it's all good. We were on the drive home, and since it was a long drive, about four and a half hours, we decided to break it up. But going camping for a night, the way we like to go camping. At the Best Western Hotel. Hee hee.

So everyone got to have a swim and a lovely hot shower and I did all the stinky vacation laundry at the hotel so I didn't have to do it when I got home today. Again, Beauty.

Glad to be home, as always. I missed my madeover romantic bedroom! We hardly had a chance to get to know each other before I left.

One last picture, of my big boy who is almost ten, looking at a river that runs through Perth, Ontario.

I came across your blog and just thought i'd say hi.

It's ok. I'm 23 and I've never been to Disneyland, either. This is why I scowl at my parents.

Looks like it was a great trip, Amy. I love your photo essay. The picture of the moon on the water is my fav.

The comment spam seems to be going crazy these days!

What is the deal with the comment spam? Anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with it?

Just beautiful! I'm taking a virtual vacation by looking (read stalking) your pictures here. Reminds me that I need to get out today and get in touch with nature.
Thank you for that.

GORGEOUS, Amy! I can't afford to move there, so I guess I'll just have to make it a point to dream about living there.

I wish I knew what to tell ya about the spam comments. I got a few and just inferiated me. Most people just told me that there's nothing I can do about it because my blog is on the web for anyone to come across. That didn't make me any less ticked.

Looks like you had a great vacation! Wonderful pics!!!

Propoxyphene may increase the effects of other drugs that cause drowsiness, including antidepressants, alcohol, antihistamines, sedatives

Do not take more of the medication than is prescribed for you. Prozac is habit forming. You can become physically and psychologically dependent on the medication. Do not take more than the prescribed amount.
