Kathryn & Eliza invited me along to have lunch with my mom today.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it, especially my mother.

We took lunch fixings from the deli section of PCC & made a very satisfactory spread.

I hope we can do it again.

Webster joined us three years ago yesterday. I had meant to post this on the day, but forgot.

Archie hasn't been with us quite so long, but is a schweetie, and hasn't had enough pictures posted lately, so he gets to be here too. Albeit in black & white.

And to make it "three" pictures, below is an experimental infrared shot of a maple in our back yard.

Every now and then, Amazon sends me information on promotions that can up the earnings of my Amazon Store.

The store doesn't make me much, but every now & then I get a $10 or so Amazon gift card that represents my earnings, and have a little fun with it.

So it amuses me that one of their current promos is Amazon gift cards - and that I even get a higher rate. :)

Since most of my Amazon Store is toys, it also amuses me that their other current promo is toys.

And if you are looking for something not in my store, start by going to my store and using the search box there, and I still get credit.

Now back to our regular programming.

Heron & fish

We watched a heron catch & eat a fish.

He either jumped or fell the rock. We aren't sure.

But he got the fish.

[The original video is a nasty-big file (~58 mb). Blogger scrunched it into something more manageable & less clear. It is still fun.]

The heron had a lot of trouble with the fish but eventually managed to swallow it.

I had wandered off by then, so missed photographing the mid-throat bulge.
