    Twice in the past week we have seen a coyote in our back yard.  And this is only what we are aware of.  Not good.

    This rose has been a pleasant surprise.  Last fall, it was looking dead.  It had gone brown before anything else.  We even stopped watering it.  Instead of throwing it out though winter came pretty quick so I just placed it in the shed. To my surprise when I opened up the shed in the spring and saw the rose all green and leafy.  Now it had flowers and many more buds.  Incredible!!

    During dinner we were surprised by not one deer but two deer wandering around the back of our yard.  Was pretty exciting. 

    These pictures are from Deniz and her iPhone.  I was fiddling with my DSLR and new zoom lense.

    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. It’s this day that I miss mine the most.  I hope my dad is well, wherever he may be.  For us sons (or daughters) we should thank our Father’s for shaping us into who we are today.

    Earlier this week on Tuesday, a deer came to visit.  It entered from the back left corner, strolled in, walked along the side fence and then turned around and slowly left.

    Sometimes you can find an appropriate candy for some people.

    Always fun to play jokes on colleagues at work.  I decided to switch up a phone handset with a banana.  I unplugged the handset and placed it with the lunch items. I then took the banana and put the cord to the end of the banana and placed it on the phone unit. LOL!  The joke was ruined a bit by the fact my colleague returned with a guest who said “I think there’s something wrong with you’re phone”.  HAHA!

    Back in January, we had a craving for grilled cheese sandwich so bought some Wonderbread and Kraft slices. Yes!  It was delicious!  But we did nit want to eat anymore of the bread and so it sat out on the counter.  We decided to do to an experiment on how long it would take before mould would start.  The more natural preservative free breads we typically buy go mouldy after just a few days if not in the fridge. It wasn’t until the seventh week that our loaf started to mould. YIKES!!  Makes you “wonder” what chemicals are in it to allow it to last so long.
