Paddles, Petals and Prose
The paddlers are taking advantage of free kayaking in the Skokie Lagoons. The lagoons were manmade by the WPA. There is a bit of frugal hungarian in those paddlers.
The petals adorn the Bahai Temple along the Wilmette Harbor. Brave little petals off the cold cold Lake Michigan water.
The prose, well, that was my mother's day gift from Al. She put my favorite posts out of 800 or so here on Irisheyes and made them into a book for me. She used a site called BLURB to make this gift . She dedicated it to Blood Donors everywhere.....Perfect! I cannot tell you how much I love this book. I have this secret fear that the blog will be *poof* gone one day when I try to log on. No matter how computerliterate folks try to quiet these fears of mine, I don't believe them. Now I can sleep a little better knowing I have my favorites in my own little page turning book.
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
