What's wrong with this picture? and a teaser.
I'm in Sarnia, safely resting in a motel. Tomorrow morning I'll be doing the final paperwork that will hopefully put me on the road for the rest of my way home with a "new" car. I'll show you when it's really mine.
I stay in motels seldom enough that they are something of a treat. Not that the decor or the amenities are all that great, but there is something oddly comforting about just sitting in bed with the TV on, having no particular requirements for the evening.
Meanwhile, I walked to dinner at a nearby restaurant. I had a dinner salad with feta cheese and grilled chicken, served with warm raspberry vinaigrette dressing. It was one of the best salads I've ever had. I think there was something about the spices on the chicken. However...
on the wall was a cute mural of Ontario and parts of Quebec. It has a major flaw. Who can spot it? I hope this isn't being mass produced by some company. If it is, I'm betting they are in China or Romania.
I think I'd better give you another teaser, or you'll begin thinking I never did go to the flower show. Don't worry. I have over 500 pictures. My success story for the day is that I learned how to transfer pictures from Mr. Stu Pid to my computer. Yes, I ended up taking a bunch of those pictures on my cell phone because the camera battery gave up. I now have them all in one folder at least.
How about a splash of brilliance? This is a Doritaenopsis hybrid. I know that only because I also take pictures of the labels, and I can read. I'm actually not much of an orchid fan, but I did roam the orchid display this year, so you'll see some if the pictures are good. I haven't even looked at them all yet. I also learned a lot about taking pictures with the cell phone. The picture doesn't actually take until a second or more after the button is pushed, so you have to remain still until you see the image appear in the corner.
This one is pretty good.
Tomorrow night I should be home. I'm ready. I've had enough excitement for one trip.
