~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.04 -- "D" is for ...
(1) Starts with "D": "D" is for dog. This is George, a rather large pup at this time. He belongs to the people living across the street from KP.
"D" is also for Dusk. This is one of the little duck watering ponds along the paths where we go walking.
The other car, stopped ahead of us in the Car Rider Lane at KP's school this morning is also a Dodge, a fairly late model Dodge Charger (I think). It had nice pretty sounding rumbling exhausts.
We had a night of nasty cold temperatures, it got down into the lower 20's. Things looked better today because a couple of fellows cut some of the for dead-sure and hanging stuff out. Like the fronds on the trees behind. The oaks keep their leaves year round, the bottle brushes withstood pretty well.
(3) Close up: Do you know what this is? Sure, a bucket and three yellow hollowed out yellow rubber sponges. But what is it for, what does it do?
Here's a purple one doing what it is meant to be doing. To find out, click on the dark line here: ___________
(4) Some Valparaiso, Chile, pictures from our South American cruise (L.A. California to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)(click on the picture to enlarge--click again to make it super sized):
Mrs. Jim and I and another lady hired a taxi for the afternoon (four hours) we had free in Valparaiso. I'm posting some here so that you can get the lay of the land. Our visit was on December 21, 2016.
The highlight of our afternoon probably was a visit to the Valparaiso home of the award winning poet, Pablo Neruda (Wikipedia Link). For an avowed communist, he had more houses than he needed, three.
I ended with Pablo Neruda's home. It is atop the hill, looking over the harbor and out to sea. Inspirational for some nice poetry. Read of this world famous poet here, read more of Valparaiso here.
