Having been delayed there many a da y during my career, I can sa y the Newark airport is not one of my favorites, but your pictures softens that opinion. Take care, Bill LikeLike Reply Newark had awful food, nowhere to go, no play area, and I felt like a rat in a maze circling the one hub I could get to, except for looking at the sunset and playing peekaboo with my daughter around the columns. 🙂 Having a cheerful child always makes life better. 🙂 Hugs, Brenda LikeLike Reply Love the shot.

They are in trouble if they get in the house. 3 cats ready to munch. LikeLike Reply Eeek! Cats can’t climb walls, though. Surely that gives the lizard a little edge. Must be a lot of bushy tails and ruffled fur… This lizard was out by the pool where my children enjoyed a respite from freezing weather and snowstorms. I had fun, too. LikeLike I have a cat that climbs door frames and sits on top. 🙂 LikeLike Wow. Moment of silence in awe… My cat used to put his paw under a door and wiggle until it popped open, but he only climbed bookshelves. 🙂 LikeLike It is part of her breed quirks. She is a turkish angora…which also means she is forever a kitten. LikeLike Hmm, I know a man like that… LikeLike We have lots of palm trees here! You could come visit 🙂 I dream of fir trees and thick dark green forests frosted with snow…..oh…..sigh……. LikeLike Reply You aren’t in Norway? Where are you?

LikeLike Reply My dad was in the Navy, so I was born in California, moved to New York City at age one and then eventually settled in the Great Lakes area. We used to visit New England every year, and I always felt happiest there. I love all the seasons, the balance, the dark winter nights, the falling leaves, the blue ocean. I could be happy anywhere though, I would find something to love. Like you. LikeLike Oh yes, there is always something to love, and even if there isn’t, there is always someone 🙂 LikeLike True enough, lots of somebodies even. 🙂 Friends, kids, hubby, neighbors, family.
