The Swan and The Eagle

Over the weekend I received a group of pictures. When I first looked at them, my heart did a flip flop.

One of my favorite birds is the swan. In these pictures graphic attack by another of my favorite birds, the eagle.

Just to share with you the wonder of nature in its most terrible beauty.

Yep the swan got away and the eagle went on to other and smaller prey.

The Shirt

As usual I watched the HP Order of the Phoenix again last week and came to a scene in the kitchen when Mr. Weasley comes home from the hospital.

Harry was standing alone and feeling like the teen without any friends and as I looked at him I thought boy does that shirt look familiar.

It has taken me 3 days to find the picture of Eric's Senior year photo 1988.

But check this out Harry is wearing almost a duplicate of it. Sorry could not find a still of him.

Not much else going on the airshow in Farnborough made quite a splash this month. Sorry Ian did not make it.

Summer Time Blues

It has been so warm that my brain decided to take a vacation from any decent thoughts.

Eric and Anna are doing well. Her Grandmom passed away and she visited Sweden and Germany for a few days. Picture of Anna and Her Mom in Sweden.

Nick and Noah took a raft ride down the river in North Georgia, somewhere there are some pictures of this but I have not gotten any yet. Picture of Nick and Noah the day before the great raft ride. Looks like they needed it.

Noah's 1st major campout with the Scouts and he loved it. It was something else to try to get all the paper work put together. It was well worth it .

They canceled the 5 mile hike and he was truly disappointed. If you knew Noah this would surprise you. He is not much of the outdoor type, but took to scouting like a duck to water. They say he swims like a fish. Passed all of his tests in the water.

Jordan is home from college from the summer and visiting in Canada this week. Ian is working with his great uncle and getting a taste of the family business. Electrician in the making.

David is still David and next year he gets to wear the brown uniform of the scouts.

The picture of Eric checking the plants at they're door. The bug is huge and it sneaked up on him one evening and now he checks before leaving the house. Brave Warrior.
