Would you believe me IF I told you that it was not a very nice morning — weather wise — today? It wasn’t, BUT I persevere. And here are my photos to prove it. SMILE. Some good ones, maybe a few great ones too. SMILE.

behind the operation.

Wow. Wow. Wow. This is a SHAME. A tragedy. It was news to I. I had NOT heard that they got divorced 7-months ago. This new lawsuit was filed in my New Hampshire today. Hence the news coverage.

He is born in June 1964 is 56. That is YOUNG. She, 12-years older, is then 68. That makes her OLDER than I!

56 & 68. Hhhmmmm.

I, a HUGE fan of Dan, had read, long time ago, that she was the REAL brains of the operation & it was she who came up with the outline for ‘The Code‘.

I not sure what to say.

Dan Brown, with ‘The Code‘, CHANGED MY LIFE. It was my total fascination with ‘The Code’. that got me into popes. And that did change my life.

I wish they both well.

Yes, nobody has sung about ‘raindrops on lilies‘ & I will grant you that lilies, despite their abiding allure lack the olfactory satisfaction of roses. But, come on. Cut some slack for the poor lilies. I think raindrops on lilies look as cute. SMILE. Enjoy.

‘Cirque du Soleil’, Falls Foul To COVID-19, Files For Bankruptcy; Cuts 3,500 Jobs.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & read here. From Twitter.


Wow. I guess it was inevitable. With all that has been going on, I had not thought of them in particular. Must be quite a few other shows too — not to mention Broadway.

I have, however, been worrying about Christmas ‘Revels’. My daughter keeps on reassuring me that it is a longs ways out!

Wow.

Poor ‘Cirque du Soleil‘. Who would have thought.

I am sure they will come roaring back. Hear that they already have some folks talking of a buyback.

We have seen 3 (if not 4 (or more)) of their shows.

I couldn’t post these on Sunday. We had a thunderstorm that necessitated that I turned off & unplugged my PC — both from power & the Internet. I can’t afford to have it get fried. Had enough routers get fried over the years. Routers are easy to replace. Not so this PC. SMILE. So, I TRY not to take any chances. Sorry. SMILE.

Deer In MY Headlights — Saturday, June 27, 2020.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Saturday night on my nightly 11pm, 1-mile NIGHT walk. Second time I have seen him/her this week. This time I managed to snap this. Yes, I wear LED headlights. No streetlights & really no lights from the houses. They are all in bed! Yes, on our road, but in an undeveloped wetlands.

That was Saturday. Last night, i.e., Sunday, I was walking, again at 11pm, in the rain. A deer darted across. And BOY! Was it quick. Just a flash. WOW.

What a Summer I am having. Bears, Bobcat & all this deer. What next? I am thrilled. Hoping to see the Bobcat again.
