    That's funny. I can't even score with put put let alone golf. But if I watch it I find myself standing up and cheering like I'm at a football game.

    I hope everyone is having a great Friday too. It was bright and sunny here. Saphire got out early but he also had to come in early because now it's overcast with a cold front coming in. But at least Saphire got several hours of sunshine so it's a wonderful Friday here.

    Yesterday was kayaking, today a few more hours of getting some additional wood/supplies and cutting in the entrance way into Sully’s new enclosure. Amazing how much time it takes to just LOOK at 50 types and sizes of hinges, but not buy anything.

    Tomorrow - 15 mile kayaking trip around Wye Island over on Maryland’s Eastern Shore! Weather is reportedly gonna be perfect.

    Here are a few pix of the newly created entrance way.

    I only once got to see living sand dollars and that was at the Naples, Florida beach. They are really pretty. They are kind of hairy or fuzzy with several colors. Kind of rainbow like. There was also a lot of them washed up on the beach drying out. There must have been a large colony there.

    Almost certainly. The ocean currents take things thousands of miles

    Good mornooning and happy weekend everyone.

    It’s Daughter’s birthday next week and both she and Son have turned up for the weekend :)

    We are going out for a meal together this evening.

    The weather continues as very wet here. The garden and the reservoirs desperately need it so I won’t complain.

    have a good time whatever you get up to in your part of the planet

    Yvonne I have looked at the My Pillow at home depot. Do you like it? I was kinda turned off with the chunky foam fill. I didn't want to buy it.

    I like it, however, eventually all the little foam pieces settle into each other and you have to keep fluffing it up. But the price! My gosh!!! Who pays that much for a crummy pillow (well, I did, obviously)?

    I think a truly good pillow is worth paying for but they sure are hard to find! I found one at Bed bath and beyond that is really nice but it’s at east 5 years old now so I don’t remember what it was called. I was appalled at the price but my husband made me buy it.. I’m really glad he did! It still feels the same as the first night I slept on it. I’ll try and check the tag for you.

    We stayed at a Marriott resort and I loved their pillows. So I went to their website and bought 2 for 140 bucks. Obviously not the same pillow. After 2 weeks the fill compacted and it was like all my other pillows.

    Made the same mistake again after buying some from Holiday Inn.

    Good morning everyone, 69° this morning. Have a feeling it will be quite awhile before Opo comes out.
    Have a good Sunday.

    Morning All

    Cold and overcast here today, but I’m sure the sun will play peek-a-boo all day. A nice Autumn day.

    Sooooo, in addition to having a great kayaking trip yesterday, we experienced an interesting event at the end of our paddle.

    This week we’ve had a fuller than normal moon coupled with a large low pressure storm out in the Atlantic. Storms and celestial effects coupled with normal high tide periods caused water to flood up and into our car park where we put in for the day of kayaking.

    Check these pix out...
