On Eagles Wings

It's so very, very hot here today and I have a new washing machine coming on Friday and have been in my basement most of the day trying to get the space prepared for the new machine. At least it's cooler down in the basement.

I've been humming this lovely song and thought I'd just share it here until I can get out and take more photos!

Unfolding More

The sunflower is so much taller and my position to take the photograph is very difficult but this is the flower head now.

I watched for a few days at this sunflower beside my front door. I was amazed at how gently it looked to be unfolding before my eyes.

What a wonderful Creator we have to make such a beautiful creation!

His name is Gyp

It's almost impossible right now to take a good photo of Gyp but I snapped these this evening just to let all of our friends know what his name is. I think I've tried every name in the book and all that have been suggested to me but each time I'd say, "Hi Gyp!", his eyes sparkled and he'd come running so I think that Gyp has chosen his own name.

I always enjoyed the James Herriot story about the little border collie named "Gyp".

When we go for walks, he knows where he lives and turns into his house on the way home. Geordie is tolerating him but loves to herd Gyp. So, just wanted to update you all and I'll get some better photos in the coming days.

My friend has been very ill and my time has been spent taking her to appointments, etc. and so photo-taking has taken a back seat for me for a little while.

On and on...

On and on they go across the countryside, cutting a swath as they go.

I'm hoping that I have a less busy week ahead but my calendar book is kind of filled up with so many appointments again. Will do my best though.

Two days of travelling around


Yesterday was filled with errands around Guelph and today I was off to London. I didn't get home till later this evening but it was nice to meet up with another member of Photography Cafe after my Dental appointment at the Dental College.

So, my message today is "Please forget-me-not" LOL I hope life is not so busy in the coming days.

A Whale Thanks Her Rescuers

I received this email today:

If you read the front page story of the SF Chronicle of December 13, 2005, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines.

She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside the Golden Gate ) and radioed an environmental group for help.

Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her ..

This was a very dangerous proposition. One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed gently around --- she thanked them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same. (There is something special about a whale looking right at you; they will never forget you.)

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate ... to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

Belated Happy Canada Day Greetings!

My goodness, life for me has become hectic and so busy!

Puppy needs a new name. I will take all suggestions and consider them. All of the grandchildren and neighbours and some close friends suggested the name at various times and I was a bit wary but thought, "OK, I'll go along with it!"

Now, two of my kids have second thoughts!

So a new name must be found!
