Is Beer A Color?

So thought this was an interestingly funny flip chart. 


It’s titled “Colors”.


And it has the typical ones you’d expect: blue, red, green, yellow, orange, purple, black, white, grey, brown, and tan. 


But thrown into the mix is beer (and Summer)–maybe these go together! 


Perhaps, someone had a little too much beer when asked about colors.


On second thought, maybe beer is a color.  😉

Swimming In Florida

In lovely Florida.


Hit the swimming pool.


About to do my laps.


I got my gear and ready to rock and roll.


Please G-d, we’ll spend the Jewish holiday of Shavuot (commemorating when we got the Torah) together here as a family.


What more can I ask.


Happy and grateful. 😉

Tie Dye Hammock

Loved this tie dye hammock by Enonation (Eno) from Australia that I saw at REI. 

 

It’s called “DoubleNest,” so I guess that means it fits 2 people. 


So open, colorful, and inviting to rest and relax in. 


Sillily, the store only carries the hammock and not the stand…so good luck with that. 


Also REI clumsily filled this gorgeous hammock with Nalgene bottles–on sale 30% off!


Uh, if you make even the nicest stuff look like junk for storage, you’re not gonna get the brand image you want. 


Anyway, the hammock was awesome!  😉

Alligator Govie

So this was a little surprising. 


In the courtyard (next to the cafeteria) at work, there is a nice seating area open during the Spring/Summer seasons. 


Pretty trees, flowers, and a pond. 


In the pond, next to the water lilies, there was a what?


Alligator.  


Not a full alligator.


But someone put an alligator’s head in to make things interesting. 


It’s nice at work when people are normal and have a sense of humor. 


An Alligator Govie that’s what it is. 😉

Beautiful Hiking @Harpers Ferry

Hiking the Appalachian Trail, oh so glorious. 

The only photo not shown is the large snake we ran into on the rocks on the side of the path.


My wife screamed:


“S-n-a-k-e!”


And we were running for the hills in this direction and that.


We had no idea where she was pointing to.


It was pretty hilarious.

Andy The Swimmer

This was a cute cartoon that “Anastasia The Lifeguard” doodled of me swimming. 


She captured me doing my laps. 


Enjoying the sunshine.


Breathing in the fresh air. 


Appreciating the beautiful flowers.


Loving the pool and water. 


Thank you so much for this great picture!
