Amiable unto eternity

a magnificent day

we drove over to Portsmouth
did tourist things
in the gardens at Prescott Park

visited an ancient cemetery
where the most memorable granite marker
read:
"she was an amiable consort. . . "
it saddened me
which of us would be known as
amiable' unto eternity

our favorite farmer
bemoaned the tomato blight
(the same one that caused the Irish potato famine)
and we felt lucky to get our 20 pounds
for cooking and freezing

picnic lunch
on Great Island
watched
lobster boats &
pleasure boats
on the Piscataqua
and
artists painting
au plein aire
children
scampering
laughing
calling

so many photo opps

but i forgot the camera!

Yes, you forgot the camera, but your words more than gave a feeling of your outing. What beautiful prose, Pat, or should I call it poetry. You do live a very gracious life!
I also wanted to ask you for your mailing address - send it by email, please - as I might have to go to the States at the end of September and would like to take advantage to send you my art book.

Thank you Gunnel. I always like to visit your blog. And so appreciate your visits to mine -- and your comments and compliments, too.

Yes, there I am: in a photo that is about a year old. that was really a mistake. but i like it .....

i am probably the most un-photo-graphable person ever. like native americans, i guess. afraid the camera will steal my spirit. or something............
