Oy! What a show!

One of the best shows Ronna and I attended recently was a concert by the Montréal Klezmer Trio who presented a lively and trilingual (English, French and Yiddish) performance at an Anglican church near Lachute. Here we see the flying hands of Henri Oppenheim.

This little creature emerged after Ronna and I had started splitting firewood a few weeks ago.
We thought the critter might croak after being evicted, but he said little, giving us the eye as he perched on top of a log to check out the real estate market.
We referred him to a nice place down the road, called Frog Hollow. Honest, that is the name of the place.

Prime colours

Some of Ronna's lilies have just peaked, providing a chance to stop and look into the heart of the flowers, where apparently pieces of brown rice can be found in a form of suspended animation.
Again, Mother Nature proves she has a colourful sense of humour.

Getting our goat

Ronna and I were invited to a goat roast Friday. The dinner had been cooking all day, in a pit.
Talk about your slow cooking movement!
