This and That

A little fun in a short amount of time.




I took an unfinished page from my journal.
Added a found leaf.
Did a little scanning.
Added a Haiku by Basho.
And this is what I got.



Autumn approaches
and the heart begins to dream
of four-tatami rooms
~Basho

- We are back to summer here. High humidity and temps in the 90's. 
Argggggh.

- I am going to the museum today. It has been a very long time since I've been there.
Having lunch with a museum friend and I'll see the new China Gallery.
Perhaps pick up a research assignment for the Japanese Gallery ... the last to be added.

- Mr. Dragon has taken some steps backward. 
We try to laugh as much as we can!

- The Houston Zoo has been featured on the National Geographic Channel in a program called
Zoo Confidential. Three episodes were filmed here. The second one was last night.
I've enjoyed each one. One of my favorite keepers was on last night ... Lynn ... primate supervisor along with one of my favorite lemurs ... Sifaka.
One more episode next week.

- Almost forgot! The squirrel family (famous for eating the hibiscus blooms), finished off the tangerines yesterday. Little buggers!!!!
The bird food just isn't enough or all the acorns on the ground.
Does this mean a *real* winter is coming?????

Wishing you well!

Joy!

I'm sorry Mr Dragon has taken a step backwards. Laughter is some of the best medicine on earth!

Enjoy your lunch today....and almost forgot, the Haiku and your journal page go together beautifully.

Hope Mr Dragon is cheered by the laughter, Snap. I went to the art museum today in Denver. The King Tut exhibit is fabulous. Has it been to Houston?

I have a photo I need to post on my blog of a squirrel with his ENTIRE BODY in my bird feeder. Grrr.

I hope Mr. Dragon is okay - I'm sending love and healing your way!!
