Pretty sunrise

I was sitting here in the living room talking on the phone with a friend in California early this morning, and out the window I noticed beautiful skies to the northeast. The sun was rising. I went out on the front deck and snapped a picture or two without putting the phone down.

Early morning here is a good time for me to call friends in California, with the 9-hour time difference. If I call at 6 a.m. here, it's 9 p.m. on the West Coast... the day before. Sometimes it gets confusing if I mention I did such-and-so "yesterday," because for the person in California that would mean Thursday, and not Friday, if it's Saturday here.


  1. Sounds familiar to me, Ken. Although 6 am is not too bad! If I want to talk to family or friends in Holland at their "comfortable time" (9 pm), I have to wake up at 3 am! Hope your shoulder is doing well, greetings from Perth, Jan

  2. Oh just plain, WOW! You have a house with a view everyday.

    1. I was on the phone with Sue, who recently broke the little toe on her right foot! Otherwise, she seems to be doing well. We talked about you -- were your ears ringing?

  3. This is so beautiful! I could keep looking at this picture a long time!


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
