September 17 - I Don't Wanna Know

She was like that for awhile.
I don't wanna know what she's up to.


Mavis' butt shown for scale.

September 17 - 'shrooms

Occasionally a 'ring' of 'shrooms appears in the back yard overnight.

I have no idea what brand they are and I'm not about to find out. The dogs ignore 'em.

September 17 - New Computer Eyeglasses

Three weeks ago I ordered new glasses for near and far, they arrived last week.

The distance pair is fine. The computer pair, not so much. Here's what I see through one lens:

It's called transverse chromatic aberration (I had to look it up). I've never had this happen with any pair of glasses, ever.

The left lens and right lens have the color “fringe” as shown above, the colors are swapped in the right lens. Annnnnd… the left lens is a bit blurry. Put those three together and they're unusable. Better luck next pair.

September 14 - Yesterday's Trike Ride

Mid-afternoon yesterday I decided on a short trike ride along the river and back. Nothin' fancy. I was bit tired but wanted to go because weather was absolutely perfect.

I mentioned to Kim that I'd be heading out for a bit and surprise, surprise. She wanted to go with.

What a fun ride. She wanted to keep going so we pedaled along the river from Davenport into Bettendorf, then through Riverdale. From there we picked up the Duck Creek Trail and headed back. Got in around 7 for a late supper and some anxious doggos. 14 miles in a couple hours.

And in those hours of riding I never once thought to take a single picture. Go figure. Next time for sure, even if I have to tack a yellow post-it to the front of the trike to remember. Whatever it takes.

September 14 - The Viking Mississippi

This is the Viking Mississippi, brand new this year. It pulled into Davenport yesterday for the first time. It'll be a regular visitor from now on. From the outside it looks more upscale than the American Cruise Line boats, which are also regular visitors now.

Cruise ships at Davenport and by extension the Quad Cities is all new. Since the former mayor stepped down last year he's been an ambassador of sorts, touting Davenport and the QC area as tourist destinations. So far so good.
