Yoda was a legendary Jedi Master and stronger than most in his connection with the Force. Small in size but wise and powerful, he trained Jedi for over 800 years. You can see how tired he is from all his training err I mean Halloween trick and treating! This Yoda’s favorite holiday!
My twin sister recently locked in tickets to a beautiful gospel concert with multi-platinum, GRAMMY winners Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith up in Tampa Thanksgiving Day weekend. The winner of The Voice, season 9 winner Jordan Smith also joined them on stage. The lights were an incredible addition to the musically talented group. It was a special evening all the way around. Some might be green with envy.
I thought that I had gazed upon everything beautiful in nature as I have spent many years traveling thousands of miles to view the beauty spots of the earth, but I have reached the climax. Never again can I gaze upon the beauty spots of the earth and enjoy them as being the finest thing I have ever seen. Crater Lake is far above them all. — Author Jack London, 1911
As we flew into Boston Logan Airport, I spotted the Queen Mary 2 (QM2) at port. Designed by a team of British naval architects in 2003, she is the largest ocean liner ever built to date.
Annually every January, she departs on an 89 to 132 night world voyage. A bucket list for sure. (Why does my bucket list seem to be getting longer instead of shorter. I swear, I’m working on it!!)
Some of Queen Mary 2‘s facilities include fifteen restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, and the first full-scale planetarium at sea where one can view the stars in galaxies far far away. Out of this world isn’t it? 😉
Hey…you guys! Wake up! They’re here! Where? I don’t see them? Can you move your head so I can see them? Move over. I want to see them too! Oh, now I see them! They’re coming to say hi to all of us. How exciting! Just in time before we release our seeds and gently collapse into our great Earth for a long winter’s sleep. Oh, but wait! What is that? All of you, please come closer and fast! We’ll protect you from that huge mosquito! Come on guys, wrap your petals around them. We can do this!
Are you ready for a nap in the sun? Can I cozy up with you if you are?
There were a ton of sea lions at the port of Newport. Newport is one of Oregon’s largest coastal commercial fishing villages. Massive sea lions galore lounging around on the various docks there and sunning themselves in the warm sun. I especially like her nose that is in the shape of a heart.
