Sometimes I think I could be sustained on sunshine and beauty alone. I dragged Serge out to the gardens yesterday as we are having a climatically fabulous weekend.
He made lots of faces before I finally got a good shot of him smiling. He doesn't care so much about the foliage as he's far more interested in architecture.
In fact, he took dozens (more) pictures of the stadium even though he's already rendered in in 3D and put it on Google Earth. I liked this shot with the Olympic rings and the extinguished torch.
The last weekend with trees like this. I'll be back with more fall foliage pics next year.
We are enjoying the long weekend even though we fret over Sara. We realized that if we still lived in our second story loft, Sara would have been euthanized by now. She hasn't been able to navigate stairs for some time now. Last time she almost broke her neck. No way we would have carried a 65 pound dog up and down the stairs three times a day, rain or shine. Here, she can go outside on the patio to do her business, but if we do go for a walk, I have to push and hold her hind legs to come back in (four stairs) or she will attempt it, fail and fall head over rump backwards. She's done that twice so now she's not allowed to try alone.
I watched an interesting video yesterday morning about how "money" comes into existence. Money in the present system really represents debt. The trouble is there is not enough money in existence to cover all the debt plus interest. The only possible endgame is a total collapse. At the end of watching I am convinced that banks should indeed be nationalized as that will be the only possible way to avoid complete disaster, if it is even avoidable.
Better spend it now while it still has value!
