Our buddy @Aldous Burbank shared some of those dried cactus fruits he collected. Truly food of the gods.

Did you see the gods after you ate them?

That, sir, was a different type of cactus. Same trip though.

I was standing in the EllGab Garden when I looked up and saw a cloud shaped like a dog.  The dog was soaring through the air, with front and back legs stretched out.  It turned its Betty Boop shaped head to look at me and in the process, its fluffy ears were thrown outward.

 As luck would have it, here is yet another Washington Park.  Only this one is in Colorado and it is from my postcard collection.

was 95° here.  but gets cool
when sun goes down -

For lunch today I’m eating a sandwich made from home made whole wheat bread, sliced tomato from the gard3n, fresh mustard greens from the garden and brat from the Winn Dixie.  Yum-yum.
