First pick from a photo session of HS Seniors today. Four of them. I asked them to take me to tracks.
The boys helped me through a fence and a ditch.
Two steps on solid ground and THEN I fall, yep on my face. Only damage to my pride and a good laugh.
I think it was worth it for this picture (and I have more)

Arizona - 8:57 am

Brownies are in the works today.

This is for my mom...
Do you see what I'm eating?  Chicken Madeira.  Chicken covered in mushrooms.
Can you believe it?!?
It's a far cry from the Blue Bayou* restaurant, huh?
(* When I was little, on a family trip to Disneyland we ate dinner at the Blue Bayou restaurant which is inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.  My parents had the gaul to order sauteed mushrooms for an appetizer.  I was so disgusted by the smell that in addition to wearing my pirate mask/children's menu I wrapped the cloth napkin around my mouth and nose so as not to suffer.)
P.S. - If you go to The Cheesecake Factory the chicken madeira is delicious...mushrooms and all.

a downpour

But we were graced with a
double rainbow

Harmless even?  Kitty is still treating it like it's going to spray her when she walks by..... it's hilarious!  Slowly she's warming up to it.  She drank out of it twice now.....in two days.  Crazy cat.
