Happy Bokeh Wednesday!


Home to NJ safe and happy - slept till 5:30 AM - perfect. Time to run and get CQW up for first day of middle school.



ps (in case you had not looked back at the previous photo):

Thanks for your comments and encouragement during my travels! I've never had a fully engaged flickr friends support team during a big trip before! I'm honored by and grateful for your presence over the last two weeks. Hopefully I'll get to follow your worldly travels over the ether sometime soon too.


ps: as someone noted, this did briefly show up in explore, then percolated off the explore list during what I call the wednesday 'bokeh storm'. Thanks for your views and nice comments!

    Thanks everyone for your viewing and kind comments!

    florabritannica No, I really did not know/remember. I'm bad with those things, only living with femme_makita has made me able to name plants and birds by even their common names (except for the very common ones). Thanks!
