Photo Enhancement

I used this photo of Peggy's Point Lighthouse, Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, that I took in September of '08:
I played with it and came up with this:
I think it has an old-time picture postcard feel.

Spencer was nosing what appeared to be a leaf - it jumped and startled him! I Googled it - found out it's a katydid.

Summer Visitor

This lady stopped by this afternoon. We haven't seen many of her kind recently - they may have been here but we didn't see them. Often when we see one there are others nearby, but this time only one. We see more in the colder months when they have to travel further to forage.

This morning our neighbor John Chandler called to say he was smoking some chickens and would we like one, so after a bad joke I said of course and tonight that's what we had for supper!
Tonight we ate half - absolutely wonderful! We were able to restrain ourselves so, tomorrow - the other half.
Thanks, John!

Independence Day

It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

- John Adams to Abigail Adams,
3 July, 1776
