Unable to put together a well-organized post, I suspect I have a case of writer’s block.
Rather than succumb to this insidious ailment, I’ll write SOMETHING! Throw a few photos in. It may not be well-organized but it’s a post!

To start us off . . . .
Bite Me, Reggie’s pet flea, isn’t going to be with us much longer. . . .
I sneak up on her to take a photo and her ears immediately go back. She knows what I’m up to.
We take our usual walks around the campground.
I grab photos of blooming bushes and wildflowers.
We push off, but it isn’t long before I see another shot I have to take!
A brightly colored bird cocks his head and looks down at me from his perch. I run up the slope to the Best Little Trailer to get my camera. When I return, he’s gone, of course.
Oh, there he is. Way over there. Maybe I can catch him with my zoom.
He flies from pine tree to pine tree, flitting from branch to branch.
I sprint hither and yon, leaping over fallen logs, hiding behind trees, slipping on dried pine needles. Bridget and Reggie follow me with their eyes, perplexed by my sudden burst of activity.
After several tries my camera catches him! The pic is fuzzy but it’s good enough for identification!
I open up the All About Birds site and confirm that he’s a Western Tanager. You can listen to his song and learn about Western Tanagers at this link to All About Birds.
On Memorial Day the crew and I drive south to Recapture Lake.
When we drove past it on our way to this camp, it was a bright blue. Today it’s paler, subdued, a quieter shade of blue. Appropriate reverence on this Memorial Day . . . .
Being only a few miles from Blanding, we drive into town and pick up some groceries.
Oh, what’s this? A sale on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. $1.99 a pound. Not bad for a small town grocery . . . .
I stock up and we return to camp.
Yes, I bought a rotisserie chicken, too. Probably the worst I’ve ever bought.
What did they do? Microwave it? Oh, well . . . The crew isn’t picky. Bridget and Reggie love it.
I check the air pressure of our tires and the Perfect Tow Vehicle’s fluids. I wash the windshield and remove Reggie’s slobber marks from the passenger window.
I rearrange some items in the back of the PTV — always fighting an avalanche back there!
Now to find the motivation to leave this pleasant, piney woods camp . . . .
