Comments and observations of a retired university professor; expect at least one entry per week. This blog began before retirement, and continues into "retirement" - to document retirement activities, including commentary, and supplementing my other, more specific, blogs. This has also become our Travel Blog.
My birthday was actually on July 1, of course. These photos are from our 'celebration' on June 30, and I'm really posting this on August 3, Nancy's birthday (when I realized I never posted these!). On July 1, Nancy had her first cataract surgery, right eye, and we haven't dealt with much else, since. She healed well, but has struggled with some sorts of allergic reactions on her face since... and still continuing, though less severe.
Allison got me this nice book, that I have already read, by Joseph Ellis, one of my favorite history writers.
We tried out some special 'healthy' deserts that Allison made. They were really good!! ;-)
I had my candle in the strawberry pie!
It was another very good day - aren't they all, these days! ;-)
