It was super foggy this morning. Normally there would be large hills in the background of this picture. Sorry about the camera reflection!

The enemy of the English garden!

Okay, I didn't take this picture today. It's meaningful to me because this is the view from the beach next to Wes' neighborhood. When I fly in and out of Dublin (like I did today) I look for these smoke stacks and I can orient myself. When I flew to the US we flew close to Dublin and I could see the stacks and I said hi to them, like I was saying hi to Wes! :-)


I love signs like this in England and Ireland. I think they're more detailed then the ones in the US. Note the driver has his seatbelt on. And the boy's shirt is blousing out over his trousers. You can see his cuffs. I'll definitely try to take more of these. They're a hoot!


Checking out the tide pools in Dublin Bay. We had gorgeous weather all weekend!


A true Irishman 'sunbathing' in St Stephen's Green. They are my sunglasses, and I finally convinced him that it was warm enough for him to take his coat off. The sweater, however, stayed on!

Freakin' constipated cat! :-(

A few months ago the government issued senior citizens with free bus passes allowing them to travel anywhere in the country for free after 9am. Sure enough they're out there at the bus stops at the stroke of nine. In addition to slowing down the morning commute, it also makes for a very full bus in the afternoon when I'm going home from work. Well, there was a group of them out there today. The thing is, you can tell they don't normally take the bus. First of all, they got on in Bristol city centre. They were dressed like they were going for a light hike and some even had walking sticks. They didn't have bags of any type (backpacks, shopping, handbags, etc). Not a hair was out of place on the head. I think that's the most bizarre part...what were they DOING in Bristol?? Then, this was my favorite, they got on the bus and were pleasantly surprised to see that FirstBus supplies free reading material to its passengers. Well, if you take the bus regularly, you are quite familiar with the daily issue of the Metro (if you're not in the know, it's a step up from the tabloids) littering the aisles. Anyway, if I could just find out what these large groups of senior citizens are doing in Bristol during the weekday, I would be very happy!

Sorry for another cat picture. I wasn't feeling too inspired today.

My stapler at work is a girl. She's getting a lot of action these days.

The best thing about riding the bus is that you're up high enough to see over the big stone walls and hedges. This is part of the view on the ride into work. I really enjoy my bus ride since finding this new route. It's very relaxing, except for the part where the road is really narrow and we almost hit other cars. Yesterday I thought we were going to be flattened by an 18 wheeler. Lord knows what it was doing on this road! Anyway, I'll probably try and take more of these, so stay tuned!

Little Kitty would live on foliage (it's not limited to grass) if I would let her.

I pass two lilac bushes on my walk to the bus stop and they smell amazing!

First barbecue of the season! No one should be surprised that it rained a bit while we were out there.

The state of my bedroom when Wes comes to visit. My mother would be horrified.
