The other day, James said it was a goal of his to win the Mansonic Award, whatever that was. He wasn’t quite sure, but it had something to do with being a good citizen and student. Today he was one of six kids in his grade to win the Masonic Award, which is precisely for that. Guess it will have to do.
*I blurred his full name on the certificate in Snapseed.

My dad and Sara recently gave us a book titled, “Dog Shaming.” I could publish a 2nd volume.
We don’t usually get there with enough time to sit around. I guess today the warm weather just invited it. And although this filter makes our dog look emaciated, I promise he is not.
A beautiful but threatening evening at the Marina tonight inspired me to take this picture that, except for a couple clues, appears to have been converted to black and white.A tall ship waits it out at the dock. Actually, it may wait longer than that for all I know.
Our dog noticed this little guy on the bridge above the creek behind our house. I didn’t notice how closely his colors matched the moss until I looked at the pictures later. I could be wrong, but I believe this is an immature stink bug. Thankfully, he did nothing to confirm that.
For most of us here, the sun comes up (when it isn’t obscured by clouds) over a dark wall of trees, delaying it’s appearance well past the already alarmingly late sunrise. Even if you’re lucky to have a view of Lake Washington to the East, you still see the sun come up over the Cascades. Wall or horizon? You be the judge.
