One single impression: Doorway


[large picture] [super sized]


It's alright come on in
Contemplate your naval
Can finish up your beer
Don't even have to flush

Out into the garden
A fresh outlook on life
Be sure to do the right
Ladies are on the left

Activity on this rock?

This stretch of the Italian Riviera looks just too nice to be left alone. And it has a view too!

Is there more to this picture that isn't very easily seen here?

.That is a restaurant up there. We didn't eat stop to eat as we were still thinking morning.

.Those Italians make good use of most of their pretty places. Next to the restaurant in the pink building is a very up scale living place. We should have checked to see if there were any flats with a view were for sale.

.As I said, they can just throw up structures on any place you would want. From the old--building, perhaps a formerly a lookout--to these 20th century homes.

Now where do you think they would keep their boats? Surely living on the Mediterranean much of the population would have boats.

.Sure just ready to go. Is that a Coast Guard boat the crew left while eating at the rock restaurant? Donuts anyone?

.

That just doesn't seem like very many boats for such a large town?


[large picture] [super size]

.Oh, here are the working people's boats. Ready for fishing, swimming, or just an outing. I don't think there will be water skiing.

Goldenrod, the Nebraska state flower lies dead (killed) in Texas

Killed by Jim and Adi!


[large picture] [super sized]
.
Unwanted, killed, and dead by pulling. Jim pulled it out of his flower bed last week.
.
.
Goldenrod flowers really grow big in Texas! Everything does! Eat your hearts out Nebraskans. This is one from last summer before it went to seed.
.
Too big for their britches, these were last year's gone to seed a little.

Goldenrods grow by spread of seed. They also grow runners under ground and baby plants pop up all over the place.

Mrs. Jim got me one plant for my birthday years ago. They were out of hand for a couple of years later, now we almost have them eradicated. They are what we call wild flowers in Texas, actually to most they are just weeds.
Here is my partner in crime. Adi wanted the ruler laid down to measure it. You can see it is two yards long, six feet. They won't grow that tall in Nebraska, ever.
