A Saturday of fun and work

I worked on the Zodiac Yesterday and when I had finished a job
I was doing I went to Richard to be assigned another. He ask me if I knew
what Baggywrinkles were. Do you know what they are? I could have said
"sure I have a few "but I didn't say that.(LOL)

The above are Baggywrinkles.
"Chafing gear on standing rigging to prevent sail wear. It looks like great wrappings
of wool from a distance,but is made from bits of rope"
I learned how to do this.

The tide was low so I could see the muscles and barnacles in the

There was allot of white painting being done yesterday

Flowers and sky

This is our rhododendron in the front of the house
last year it froze and didn't bloom at all
I  ran out of the house in my nightgown to get this picture
before it went away

This one too.

Again I am sorry for not posting or commenting for a while.
It has been a strange week.
I broke my glasses,My mom fell off her bed she was not hurt,but
she could not get up. I just had a giggling fit when I wrote that.
( I've fallen and I can;t get up)
It was time for my blood test  and I don't know what else ,
but you know I love all of you and I will try to get caught up.
