Sunday visiting Cora, was a fun day in blistering hot Seattle. The day started with a nice long drive to see the troll that lives under the bridge. Yup, a real troll. A massive troll. A real massive troll. (It also gave me a chance to get to know her brother a little, which was great, also.)Here the troll is, obviously making eye at my gal. Jealous much? I thought "Jealousy" was the "green eyed monster" not the "silver eyed monster". Look out gals, he's gonna get ya!(Note to self: Cora does not seem to mind getting pawed by much larger men.)After the Troll, we went to see the ducky derby, where else, but "down" town. I had heard of these races, but never actually seen one. And the most interesting part to me, was the fact that the river running through their urban area was so clear and clean that people swam in it. You don't get that in Chicago.
Sorry about the video. I was panning up stream as the ducks were going down stream, and so they really appear to be zooming.
And here is what happens when somehow you turn on the video recording part of your camera when you don't know it. But see how clean the water is!
Speaking of water, at Cora's birthday party, the young and young at heart engaged in a wild water fight. (Look out! Momma's gunning for ya!)But I think the most important picture of the weekend has to be this one:I have a feeling that I'm, going to be getting that look a lot in the future! But seriously, despite the scowl and the glowing eyes, she's actually not upset. Just caught off guard. But oddly, others in the family say that they've seen that look before.
And that about wraps up my trip to Seattle. I left just after lunch on Monday (much kissing and sadness at the airport) and got back to my place about bed time.
I want to take this time to thank all of you who have such kinds words to say about Cora and me. (See S&C, I got it right, right?) I am continually awed by the fact that cool people like yourselves are out there cheering for the toad (me) to kiss the princess (Cora). Seriously, thank you, it means a lot. I really, seriously, and truly am over the moon for this smart, sweet, sexy, charming, fun, funny, witty, flame tressed woman. Oh, and cute and beautiful (they are different) with a quick and warm smile and and infectious laugh.
Cora, I love you, very, very much.
