“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

 Masterpiece kept his boot on and was walking better this morning.  Abbe is not 100% but better than she was.
 Another grey day.  After chores I drove into the mall to do a little shopping for Coop and moi.  On the way home I grabbed a few shots of Calypso and Chloe over at Jan's place.  Do you remember them?

 While I was gone, Gary made another batch of sauce and continued to clean his barn.
At two I had an appointment for an eye exam and ordered new glasses.  The best deal I've ever gotten....grand opening as they moved to another location.  Those drops they put in your eyes can be very annoying for hours....

Jill had chore duty and Gary and I went down to Jen's for Cooper's birthday cake.  The sun was finally out....the most beautiful part of the day.
 Coop was pretty excited when he saw a bag full of goodies.

 He will have a party with his friends this weekend.

 The neighbors stopped in for cake and ice cream....and some pizza.

 Kevin spent most of the day driving home from Hartford.  He had many detours, as the thruway was covered with 15 FEET of water in a couple of places near the Mohawk River.  What a mess.  I can't imagine what it must be like in that area.  More weather extremes.
Kevin works for a German Company and he came home with a soccer ball and these great looking hats.  They are so European compared to what we get in this country.  Gary and I ordered a couple.

Home before 9 and tucked in the ponies.  Masterpiece was the first one in.
Night all.


  1. I want Cooper's birthday cake! Is that a kid's dream cake or what??

  2. What a happy "birthday boy" with his goodies and fun cake!

  3. Another busy day for the Skoogs - wasn't that surprise sunshine great?
