These cormorants were enjoying a sunny day off Aarons Beach recently.

I've been busy busy busy just doing the usual, every day things.  I'm struggling with the fact that summer is over and only three (likely short) months stand between today and Christmas.

Next Wednesday Daughter turns 17.  She's requested dinner at her place of employment (and my favorite local restaurant) Merroir. She's juggling a very full workload at school these days, and we're both eager for the college application process to be behind her.

Otherwise, it's just business as usual around here, nothing too exciting or out of the ordinary.

And that's just fine with me.

A Market Days Tale

Once upon a time, Chesapeake Bay Woman rode to Mathews Market Days in a beautiful red chariot that was entered in the car show.

The beautiful chariot and she were born the exact same year:  1965.

Chesapeake Bay Woman's Middle Sister, who insisted on wearing a full-length black dress to what was otherwise a hot, sweltering, humid event, arrived at the car show most eager to have her photo taken.

Chesapeake Bay Woman obliged.

The car show was great.

There were many beautiful cars.

And some characters.

Speaking of characters...

Anyone else see anyone else wearing a full-length black dress? No. You don't.

Middle Sister purchased one of these carvings for her house which is down Redart.

An older sister's primary role is to torture younger siblings introduce new experiences to the younger siblings,  to encourage them to do things that may be outside their current comfort zone.

Everybody wins.

The End.
