Propane anyone,

According to the internet these were a hot item back in the mid 50's. Propane used for torches, lanterns, etc. I found this in the bush on last Saturday's hike. I believe in leaving stuff like this alone for others to enjoy. I wish everyone felt the same, just take pictures.

Weekend trip to Sibley

Decided Saturday morning to take a trip to Sibley for a walk / ride. A quick pack of camera, lunch and extra clothes and I was off around 9AM. I had to stop & grab my bike from the whse on the way. I arrived shortly before 11AM cause I decided to turn back when I spotted this image from the point. That turned out to cost about 1/2 hour by the time I started moving again. I couldn't resist the colours. An image well worth capturing. I did about 8 km on the bike and walked bout 2km up the shore line toward T-Harbour. It was a section I had not explored. I took about 60 pictures. These are the ones I liked.

Poor Baby

I've noticed in the last month or so that my baby is going blind. She, Roxy, is just over 9 years old. She can't see up close, distance seems to be ok. It has gotten worse lately. She keeps running into thing ( walls, doors, hydro poles ) and smacking her nose, which is in rough shape as it is. The auto immune disorder that attacks her nose is not getting any better. Steroids are the only answer to help her nose but the side effects are not good either. Now she seems to be having trouble walking. I think maybe she fell going down the stairs cause she didn't see them. I'm going to wait a few more days to see if her hind end gets any better. If not then she needs to see the vet. She spends a lot of time in her cage just laying. There used to be a time when she could run 20K, but those days are gone. She has trouble doing 5K. It makes me so sad.
