Well, I have to 'fess up! I have cabin fever and am bored, bored, bored. Writer's block on top of that. These gray and rainy days are getting a wee bit old and we're due for some sun and a bit of cheer, don't you think?

This above photo was another taken from my files and re-worked. I like the muted colors that developed here. The softer look of the woods and grasses has a soothing effect for me. This was taken at one of the ponds at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. I haven't been there in a while and Norm and I might go up for a meal in another week or so in celebrating our wedding anniversay. Number 38!!! I can hardly believe that number of years we've been together! Second marriages for both of us and all 38 years have been good to us, even through a few hiccups along the way. We consider ourselves very blessed people. Life has been better than good.

This weekend 3 of our grandson's will be landing in Port Orford. As many as can, try to return to Port Orford in a sort of memorial gathering for our first grandson, Jorma. Jorma passed over 2 years ago. That's another passing of the years that seems impossible. So, his brothers and friends gather and meet on one of the beaches and remember Jorma. Aside from the reason, it'll be great to see all three boys again together. Life has drawn them into different directions but this weekend the three become unified......... in missing and remembering the brother that had once been a vital part of their family. Jorma is still so missed. continues in births, deaths, celebrations........all the ups and downs and in-betweens. And still, life has been better than good.
