This morning, "uh-oh" brought me out of my focus on recent regulatory changes.
Someone had forgotten to fasten the chain on one of the gates to our goat-donkey paddock, so Karen had to coax these guys back home.

This evening, as we strolled through the field you see in the picture beyond the donkeys, we enjoyed this view to the West.
When we reached the James River, it reminded me of Mirror Lake, in New Zealand, on the South Island, which reflects Mount Cook and Mount Tasman.
"Why go on vacation?" asks Virginia.

Right.  We live on vacation.


  1. Jerry use to say that when we lived in Evanston. We would take our lunch to the lake & eat. Since you can't see the other side of the lake, it reminded me of an ocean, beach and all. As we fed the seagulls, Jerry would say, "we live on vacation!" The James River looks more comforting. Can't wait to see it again.
