"Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
Dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay."
This water-spurting frog is part of a chill-out area in the office park I
work in. The water goes directly into a drain surrounded by rocks. I only
noticed the sign yesterday -- how exactly would one 'wade' through rocks
Urgh, it is too hot at work! Why can't this office building ever get it's
temperature right? Every morning I have to start up my system of fans to try
and keep it cool. It sort-of-kind-of works, but I end up with mad 80s hair!

They had a fairground game at the restaurant we went to last night, full
of...erm...hedgehogs I think. It was a rip-off -- all stuck together and
impossible to grab with the mechanical hand, so I took a picture instead.

Poor Russ! He was just about better after his ACL surgery in October and now
we think he's blown the ligament in his 'good' leg. This is the culprit -- the groundhog he was chasing when he started limping. He's got an appointment
with the specialist on the 29th. Until then it's canine aspirin and jumbo
chews to keep him busy, but off his paws. *Sigh*
My niece wanted me to help her do a Summer design on the bottom of her pool
this afternoon. I'm not really an artist (hence the surfboard that looks a
bit like a spaceship!), but it turned out ok. We were pleased with it and it
was cool to spend some quality time with the little one.

Sabbi -- my nutter of a cat and the geraniums I've managed not to kill for a
whole two weeks now!
A few shots from my stint as tour guide for the parents! We went to
Annapolis, Maryland for the day.
Here's one I missed earlier -- Madison Square Garden. We only walked by it
though. The train stopped at Penn Station and it's right next door.
