What a delicious dinner. Everything locally organic except the cucumber.

Had a super cool day out with Bill today chasing clouds along the Skyline Drive and then saw this field of day lilies near Bentonville, VA.

New artwork in the side of Nick's Deli and I also spy a new BBQ. A new venture that will have to be sampled soon.

Mine and Stuart's pass to freedom. Stuart was nearly locked away for the night while I was in a bar next door with friends. The garage shutters had been down for a half hour but I snuck under as they opened fr a guy leaving. Some sweet talk to a janitor and I paid $12 instead of the $3 I'd paid on a previous stay.  Still a small price to avoid staying in DC with no change of clothes!

After the 3rd severe storm since Friday my patio plants are still hanging in there, and it looks like a bumper crop will be coming from the tomatoes. Yum!

One of the local farms has all of his gates painted in this light blue. I kinda like it.

Checking out the beer before the public are admitted at NOVA BrewFest in Manassas where Steve and I pulled beer for Flying Dog.

The little back lane we have to use to reach the fields we drive through while our hill road is being repaired.

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

They've dug more out of the hill but it still looks steep and really slick. The fields we all have to drive through are a quagmire now too.

Enjoying a Thai birthday dinner in DC with  British buddies. It was very spicy food!

What an honor. My blog on the 611 has been liked by 224 folks so far, and has even fired up a couple to travel down from Detroit to travel on her in Lynchburg this weekend. They won't be disappointed!

Standing by the 611 at Manassas, my second day of chasing it from Manassas to Front Royal and back. Love this engine!

The dreaded hill is being torn up. The plan is to reduce the 20% gradient to 10% and then finish it with some lovely smooth asphalt. Can't wait!

June 5 is National Cuddle Your Cat Day. Kota had lots of cuddles but Rosie Lee wasn't too keen on being photographed while having her cuddle.

I've starts hanging bead bits from the branches on the patio, but because of the bad weather all week, I've temporarily  stopped. Will be glad when the rain passes and my beads can start glinting in the sun.

Kota has camped out in the latest box. He looks set for the evening!

A very happy moment for me and the turtle today as I released him back into the pond he probably originally came from. His shell is fully healed from where Stuart clipped him and he was ready to go, his little legs paddling in the air. May he live a long and healthy life.
