“Did you ever stem a strawberry and throw the strawberry away and pop the stem into your mouth?” ~~Jack London

This red enameled colander brimming with red strawberries is from Neddy’s kitchen, freshly washed and ready to be stemmed, and popped into one’s mouth. The image, Bowl of Berries, was originally uploaded by barneykin. It is posted here from Neddy’s flickr

A Good Guy

A Photo from Neddy

“There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace.

“General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate.

Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev — Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” ~~Ronald Reagan: Remarks at the Brandenburg Gate

The rest, as they say, is history. What a great picture, if I must say so myself! It is from the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC.

Living at the Water’s Edge

When I spotted this magnificent houseboat on the Amsterdam waterfront, I immediately thought of my octogenarian friends, Van and Geri (of “Geri Was a WASP“), and the many years they passed their summer days in a less magnificent version of a float house on Lake Coeur d’Alene, in Idaho.
