Enroute to a 6:30am "swim with the dolphins" outing in Kaikoura, New Zealand (about a week ago). It was an incredible experience, there were hundreds of playful dusky dolphins who seemed very interested in meeting us. I saw one swim up to the surface then I lifted my head out of the water and saw him do a flip in the air. It was a bit difficult to jump into the ocean at 6:30am, but they equipped us with wetsuits before we got on the boat.

Thanks. I wasn't too sure how I would feel about being a grandmother, but the first time I picked her up it was instant love

Yesterday was the first time the temperature rose to 32 degrees, and for the first time this winter, the snow was ok for packing...most unusual, and because of that, no snowmen, even in the "kid" neighborhoods.
So... just because we needed a memorial to the coldest winter in history, I rolled up "Frosty" in our back yard, last night.
So this morning, after a night temperature of 40 degrees, Frosty had to hurry on his way, and lost two teeth in the process. Here for 2014 Posterity...
Frosty

Yes, very safe, thanks. The wind has been blowing steadily at 20+ mph ever since and gusting up to 35. Howling through the windows but all is good.

BTravlin,

Is that your home? Is that your pool? Are those your beach chairs? If so, can we all stay with you, once the weather clears up?

Yes, that is our home, or more accurately, it is the condo complex where we live.

And just how many is "we all"?

The storm passed and things took a turn for the better.

Last Friday was my 60th birthday so I am posting a couple of pics from the day along with one from 3 years ago that I had posted back then. I suppose I should embrace the gray, but I like the red better.....

Very pretty pictures! I like you with the red hair. I just turned 61 last month and I am trying to embrace my gray hair. I don't like the chemicals and how quickly my gray starts showing. (My cat knocked my hand while I was typing and I am not show what I hit or how to get the italics off.)

Whew, the italics are off. Anyway, just wanted to add that I like my hair better without the gray. I love your smile in the third picture!

I LOVE the red. It looks like you have some highlights in it, too. The red really suits you. There is no reason to embrace the gray unless you want to.
