Saturday Morning Post


Can't believe it is Saturday (alright...Friday night) already!

This week whirled by:


As we were leaving Sophie's daycare yesterday, we passed this beauty.


Sophie getting her second massage from Laura.
Sophie very willingly became Laura's 'guinea pig'
as she is taking an animal massage course
and needed a few volunteers.
Soph LOVES it!


Had breakfast at 'Emma's' yesterday. This is Kim, the owner/chef. 
She did up a few of her famous fishcakes for my father.
They are the BEST!


Tony the pony at Sophie's doggie day care.


Dramatic sunset last evening.


A few of the 'characters' at the shop.


From the car in Dartmouth.


A framed picture I have at the shop.


In a rush......


A few of Ron's cards at the shop.


Going over the MacDonald Bridge to Halifax yesterday.


You will never guess where we are in the city!


From my father's room looking east over to Citadel Hill in the 'hospital district' in Halifax.


My father challenging Ron and I with a few of word -definition/lexicon puzzles.
I can only hope I will be as sharp as he at 98!!

  1. I read a lovely story with photos from start to end, and you saved the best for last, a wonderful man with a sharp mind, I, too, hope I can be still enjoying words and puzzles at that age. Please tell him, he is a "cool dude with a great mind for words and more", and the horse, Grand-daughter will love that too. Hugs to all, Jean

  2. I love " Low Tide". Poor little fella! I always feel so bad when occasionally I realise that the dog or cat's water is empty. Have a lovely weekend in that glorious land of yours. X

  4. wow on all you took my breathe away, that beautiful horse , and Sophie she was in heaven, it shows in her eyes, and all the wonderful wonderful photos and Ron is also obviously very talented, but i knew that and all that photos in between make me happy. Most of all your dad at that age so sharp, that makes me happy the most..the only sadness was the low tide but i'm pretty sure it was just for effect and someone gave him water quickly, because i know you love all animals and would never ever neglect one...You and Ron are wonderful human beings, and I'm glad I know of you both, or something would have lacked in my life. So thank you, always to you, Ron Sophie and especially to your dad Hey "High Five"

  5. I didn't know Ron made cards of his photos! That's a great idea. Glad to hear your Dad is doing so well and still enjoying those great fishcakes!

    1. Ron just started doing about 3 weeks ago, Debra. He is building slowly and getting prepared for the tourist season beginning in May.
      His favourite kind of fishcake too...made with salt cod. Is there any other kind?!

  6. Whew, busy week! Your dad had a pretty pretty view from his window for a short while.
    What does the massage do or is supposed to do for Sophie?
    Such nice shots when you go to Sophie's day care!
    Pictures at an angle - um, nearly a bobblehead now. :D

    1. The massage does exactly for animals what it does for humans, Sharon.....relaxes them and gets out any knots or soreness in the muscles. Sophie is so relaxed after her massage.
      Just move your screen to straighten those angled pics.

  8. Oh, your Dad gets to have yummy fishcakes, a gorgeous view from his room AND a great son...what a lucky guy!!

    The photo of Donald Duck reminds me...do you remember when men used to talk like Donald Duck to be funny? Or was it just the funny Uncles that I had who did that?

    1. LOL! I do remember that, Kay! It was all the rage back in the 50's and early 60's. Must have been a universal thing in North America.

  9. That's a keepsake photo of your Father, Jim. I like the eclectic photos you post on Saturdays.
