The last couple of weeks in pictures. From the top…a segment of the new Sarah Long drawbridge that is being built to replace the old one, on US Route 1 in Kittery going to Portsmouth. These segments will help put the span in place, which is supposed to happen at high tide on Oct. 17th and I WILL be there – night or day – to see it happen! I can’t wait to take photos of the event. The tractors hauling the segments had to come through my weigh station this week on their way over to the bridge construction site, which is close to my work.
Other photos…me being silly with the crown..yeah, I am king Butch! Ha!
The foot shot is my visit to the dentist yesterday to get a broken tooth repaired. The dentist had a helluva time numbing my mouth, the novocaine just wouldn’t take and he had to keep adding more…finally the whole left side of my face was numb and he got it done. My teeth are almost all completely fixed now, which is just awesome! Come a long way since April!
I bathed the dogs and took that pic of them scowling at me from the back of the couch…where they perched to dry off. They cooperate quite well for their baths, but if they know it’s coming they do both try to run and hide. Once they’re caught they give in and let me bathe them without much incident. Now cutting their nails is a whole other animal! They HATE it and fight like crazy!
I got the pic of the bee on the cone flower when I was over at Lowe’s looking at plants. I thought it was a great shot to take! The bees are so endangered right now, we need to keep a vigilant eye on what is happening to them because without bees we don’t get the pollination we need for growing food…think about that.
I got those snazzy new boxers recently, I usually wear boxer briefs, but these caught my eye. They’re quite comfortable to run around the house in, but I can’t wear them under clothing as underwear. I’m stuck on the boxer-briefs for that purpose. I did get a new pair of the Ellen underwear…which I am not that happy with. They are too thin, the waist band needs to be wider by about 3/4″ and they need to be about 2″ longer in the leg….she touts them as the greatest thing since sliced bread…but I beg to differ. They could use much improvement. I am still very happy with the Aeropostale brand, they’re the best I have found!
The sunflowers are from my mothers garden. I can’t believe how tall they all got! Those are at least 12′ tall! I’ve got to try to put in a patch of sunflowers of my own next year.
And yes, I am still smoking my beloved cigars on occasion….I prefer the Black & Mild Cream ones the most!
Have a great weekend!!! More photos and some videos to come!
