I Know, I Know It’s Up To Six

I love how the light seems to be trailing behind the duck, like he’s pulling it out of the bright spot.

The days at No Facilities with a blog post, that is – yes, I know. The “six” happened because #WATWB was Friday, and I wanted to re-blog Teagan’s opening episode. In my defense, Friday’s story about the two remarkable young women was my most popular #WATWB post ever, and Teagan’s prologue and Episode-One post really shouldn’t be missed because Episode-2 could go sideways. I’m not sure that came out right…I hope Teagan understands.

That said, the defense rests. And I’m going to let you rest. Today (Sunday) is Pascha (Orthodox Christian Easter) and we’re celebrating it and Easter together, since they were only one week apart this year. Accordingly, I’m taking the day off from writing.

The gallery includes photos taken this weekend, in and after the rain.

  1. Thank’s for the reminder about Teagan’s post. I’m WAAAAAY far behind on reading blog posts and this is one I don’t one to miss. I’m going to go looking for it next!

    Happy Monday, Dan. Love the photos with the golden morning light.

    1. Thanks for your support, Roberta. We’ve had so much rain, and “showers” linger in the forecast throughout the week. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to visit my park again.


    1. Thanks Lois. I’m not sure what it is about that woman, but Maddie knows something. Because of the rain, we had to walk back the same way, and she gave her the same treatment. Meanwhile, we walked past another woman and Maddie was fine.

  2. Whaddya mean “your” park! That’s MADDIE’S park! You’re only there because Maddie doesn’t want to carry her own leash, and she’s not very good at taking photographs!

    Incredible photos of everything glowing gold, and of course, those glorious reflections. Good thing that paper is sealed in a plastic bag!

    My son-in-law is of Greek heritage and our granddaughter was brought up in the Greek Orthodox Church, so they celebrated Páscha yesterday too.

    Thanks for the link to Teagan’s blog. I checked it out, was hooked right from the start. I immediately subscribed to her blog. Your photos and her prose went together like peanut butter & jelly. Perfect! Teamwork….not a thing of the past after all!

    26 degrees this morning. Everything covered in frost. Water in bird baths frozen solid. In two days it’s May. I planned to mow today, but I think I’ll put that on hold while I wait for the Locust and the Plague to come. That’s about all Mother Nature hasn’t sent our way!!! 🤗🤗🤗

    1. Ha ha – Oh, Ginger, I’m laughing thinking about the plagues. I had to scrape the ice off my car this morning – that’ll teach me to leave it our in late April. I’m glad I had Maddie on a leash when we walked by that woman – THAT WOMAN!!! – Maddie does not hold a kind thought for her. I hope I never meet her when walking by myself.

      I was brought up in a mixed-religion house, so we always celebrated both holidays at Christmas and Easter. Now I’m back in that mode, but it generally works out well.

      The Editor had been thinking about mowing the back yard today, as it might be the only day this week without a chance of rain. As I write this, I just realized, I didn’t get her mower out…uh oh :(

      Thanks for following over at Teagan’s, I think you will enjoy it.


    1. Oooh, NanoWriNone – I like that. Maybe you could start a “break from blogging challenge. Spend more time with your neglected (so they say) pets. Speaking of which, I think I heard MuMu on the phone with Gibbs.


    1. Thanks John. I like to adhere to a schedule, but sometimes, I just have photos to share and some don’t have a long shelf life. I know it doesn’t matter, but I like to let people know what’s going on when I can.

      1. I understand. Those days for me are the several days I work and also try to have a bit of a life in the hours before and after. :-) Fortunately, I’m only part time, but then there are always other things that need to be done as well, work at home things.

  3. The sun reflected in the water, just so pretty — with duck, without duck :)
    Poor Maddie, grrring at lawn ladies. Sadie is such a spazz, she’d cry about how she needed to go meet the lady.

    1. I love seeing the sun like that, I have about four pictures of the duck going through the sun. It really looks like he’s parting the sun and it’s sticking to his butt. Maddie is OK with other ladies, but that woman, with or without the walker, is just evil.
