|If you look closely at the end of the log on the left you can see the remains of my early morning cigar...|
Since I was up anyway, I showered, padded downstairs, and spent some time outside in the pre-dawn darkness...eventually decided to enjoy an early morning fire, and shortly after sunrise, a good morning cigar. No whiskey...yet...
So this week we and a couple of neighbors paid to have several trees removed from the property behind us that were blocking the horizon and crowding out the sun...here's the new view:
|kinda reminds me of Sinatra's Twin Palms...ok, I'm reaching...|
While we're on the subject of trees, here's another addition to my upcoming Halloween display:
|The Tree Creature during the day...|
|...and at night.|
Earlier this week I got a surprise in the mail from Bob Adams of www.RonsonRepair.com and this time he was in cahoots with Karen...sent a package to her attention, and this was the surprise:
I think Bob knows this may be the closest I'll ever get to having my own bowling lane...what a great lighter...thank you Bob! Oh, the ashtray it's sitting on was also a gift from Bob. Truly, he is all about his passion for collecting, fixing, and promoting Ronson lighters and related items. Very cool!
So the rest of today will be about getting down to the Douglas / Saugatuck area, browsing the antique mall there, then bowling a couple of games at the LakeView Lanes.
Later, mcm fans...
