A cool crisp clear morning for my walk today. Not many people about but here is one of the black squirrels. I usually see them in the woods but this one was in some one's yard up the street. The picture is not that good but you can tell it's a black one alright.
The other day we saw a Smart Car parked down the street by the mill so I got out the camera and took a few of pictures of it. I've seen a few of them driving around but this is the first red one I've seen. Look at the sidewalk squares and you can tell how tiny this car is.
They even put a little cloth down first so as not to scratch the window. Isn't it the cutest little thing!? I wonder if this person goes around putting them on all the Smart cars he or she sees.
I have just finished reading another one of Alexander McCall Smith's books.
Here is a quote from the book. A friend of Angus dies and this is what he says about him.
"I suspect that Scotland is full of people like Ramsey. They are people whose lives never amount to very much in terms of achievement. They are not celebrated or feted in any way. But there they are, doing their best, showing good will to others, not cheating in any way, supporting the public good. These people are the backbone of the country and we should never forget that."
Alexander McCall Smith is writing a book called Corduroy Mansions and he is writing a chapter a day and you can read it on line. He started it in September and will finish it in February. Click on the link if you want to check it out.
This morning I dropped off a couple of books at the library and picked up the latest book in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series called The Miracle at Speedy Motors. It's the 9th book.
I also stopped at Wal-mart and bought a few more long sleeve turtle neck shirts. The first layer for my layered look that I usually wear.
My belly is telling me that it's lunch time so off I go to eat. Afterwards I plan on going outside to get started on the front yard. Dead flowers to cut down and leaves to rake and bag.
A very Happy Monday to everyone.
