Loving Rose

I talked about retirement for years before actually taking the plunge! I had all kinds of plans for my retirement. Happily, I've not even tried most of them. 

But one of my retirement ideas has been realized. I talked about having a dog in my life again, and I've done it!

Rose is a family dog. One of my grandchildren brought her home from a rescue shelter a few years ago. I love this dog! She's sweet and cuddly, and eats up our kisses and hugs!

Rose has never met a human she doesn't like. She loves to eat people food (especially Cheese-It's, when she can get them). My daughter-in-law walks her every day, and she takes her morning nap right after!

We love our Rose. I love Rose, and enjoy being with her every day. Rose makes my day, every day!

The final episode of Inspector Lewis starts soon.


I watched every Inspector Morse episode on Netflix a few years ago.

Sergeant Robbie Lewis and Inspector Morse solved a lot of murders in Oxford. Lewis was patient with his superior, which wasn't always easy! After the Morse series ended, the fictional Sergeant Lewis became an Inspector and got his own series.

I have not seen every episode of Inspector Lewis, but I am sure that Netflix or Hulu will pick it up (at least I hope so).

Inspector Lewis is a well done series! The characters are well developed, and the stories are well done. For me, that means I cannot
figure them out!

Lots of murders in these sleepy little villages (but I'm sure not in real life).

Inspector Lewis is on at 9:00 p.m. Pacific time, on PBS.

"Says Who?" Trump Lawyer Self-Destructs On CNN



This was a RIOT!

Summer in Bellevue

We don't get a lot of hot weather in Washington State, but when it arrives it can be brutal. 

Not a lot of folk have air conditioning here; rents are so high I'm sure cost is a factor for many Seattle residents. 

I'm lucky this year, because we have an air conditioner at our house! It's supposed to be 95 degrees F tomorrow and Saturday, so I will be sticking close to home! I may also cool off with our lawn sprinkler if I get too uncomfortable!

Since I'm retired, I don't have to go out to work every day (thank goodness). Keeping the lawns green is a full time job this time of year, since we don't have too much rain. We water early in the morning, before it gets too hot!

#NakedTrump is the top Twitter topic today. I guess statues of Naked Trump are showing up in a lot of U.S.  Cities today. Don't worry, I won't post a pic of the statue. It's gross! 

Instead, I'll show you my latest pic of our backyard!
Stay cool!

Test 2

 

Mobile blogging test

This is a test!


Bellevue heat wave




One of my photos above, taken at Kelsey Creek Farm in June.

It's going to be a hot week in the PNW, and will be in the mid-90s by Friday. We have an air conditioner in our living room, and it's keeping the house pretty comfortable.

My blogging experiment is going slowly, hopefully my brain will kick in to high gear soon!
