LOTS More from the beach (apologies) - Varied and without direction - Beach shots and pup and water

Gotta start with this one because this walk I'm showing you took place on Christmas day. As I feel sure you already know I spent it with mnhtnbb, her dog Snowy and my own dog Lola

How perfect that I found a Christmas tree at the end of the boardwalk

First let me show you my shots of a friend I got to meet in person, Du photographer mnhtnbb, first in repose, and then happily at work (if you can make her out in picture number two)

Please bear with me about the Lola shots! This trip was the highlight of her young life. I have never seen her this happy.

Her hesitant arrival

Her more courageous perusal of the water

Her dodging the waves

Stick with me the subjects will change,
here she turns into my golden girl as the sun sets

I promised some diversity so here a few I enjoyed looking at,
My approach on a solitary walk to the beach

Beautiful flora at the bottom of the walk

Shells on the way to the water’s edge

Arriving at the foaming rim of the ocean

And finally, some shots of the sunset from the water’s edge

A look back on the very tired walk home - it was a wonderful Christmas day - with DU on our minds since it brought about our original connection.

A self made ornament and today's Southern Snow

Our neighborhood has begun to make these chicken wire balls, and from afar they look spectacular all through the trees. This closeup is what is going on in my front yard. Not so great, but fun and seasonal for sure.

Lola is depressed - and I can't stop smiling at the photo

I had to get some things done uninterrupted so I dressed her for the first time ever in a hand-me-down dog sweater to dress her for her outside crate as colder weather is upon us.

This is what she looked like before I put her in it.

Kim Jong Un Fears That G.O.P. Tax Bill Makes His Plan to Destroy U.S. Redundant- Andy Borowitz

Kim Jong Un Fears That G.O.P. Tax Bill Makes His Plan to Destroy U.S. Redundant-Borowitz

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—Kim Jong Un is concerned that his long-standing plan to destroy the United States has been made totally irrelevant by the Republican tax bill moving through the Senate, a source close to the North Korean dictator said on Friday.

The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Kim fears that his scheme to turn the United States into an uninhabitable hellhole has been to a large extent upstaged by a similar proposal from congressional Republicans.

“You have to understand, destroying America is something that Kim and his family have been plotting for decades,” the source said. “To see the Republicans swoop in at the last second and basically steal that idea—it’s got to hurt.”

According to the source, Kim has been watching C-span non-stop, praying that the Republicans’ plan to end life as Americans know it might come undone at the last moment, but he is “not getting his hopes up.”

“After having such a wonderful missile test, he should be on top of the world this week,” the source said. “Instead, he’s afraid that all his hard work has been for nothing. He now understands why so many Americans despise the Republicans.”
