Bill's sharp eye spotted this squirrel just before Black Jack did.
Bill has some of the qualities that I loved in my Dad. He is curious about many different aspects of his world, and interested in what he calls "guy shots." This was at Moodyville Park in North Vancouver.

SHANGHAI - Minister of the Environment Earl Deveaux was in the People's Republic of China to attend the commissioning ceremony of the newest vessel on the Bahamian ship registry on Wednesday, January 6.
Barbara Jean Deveaux, the minister's wife, officially named the vessel the CS Caroline in honour of the late Winifred Caroline Mortimer. The vessel will be managed by Campbell Shipping Company Limited, a Bahamian company.
The ship was built in Jaingsu Province, the Peoples Republic of China, by Tsuji Industries (Jiangsu) Co Ltd and designed by Algoship Designers Limited. GTR Campbell Marine Consultants Limited supervised the construction of the ship. Both companies are Bahamian and have offices in Nassau.
Mr Deveaux said the Bahamas ship registry has many vessels built in China by Bahamian companies valued well in excess of a billion US dollars.
He also noted that the People's Republic of China and the Bahamas have had formal diplomatic relations for more than 12 years.
"However, our cultures have been comingled for a very long time, as many of the Bahamas' most successful citizens are of Chinese origin," Mr Deveaux said. "The relationship between our countries has proven to be mutually beneficial to both countries.
"The Bahamas has benefitted from significant Chinese investments, notably Hutchinson Whampoa in Freeport, Grand Bahama. The generosity of the Chinese people is exemplified in the gift of a sports complex and expert technical support by the government of the People's Republic of China."
BNSF Railway has a single-track main line through White Rock that runs along the entire length of the White Rock Beach promenade. The city itself has no train service, however this rail line is a major corridor for goods being transported between the ports of Vancouver and the continental United States as well as the Amtrak Cascades passenger service between Seattle and Vancouver via Bellingham, Washington. The Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) also have trackage rights along this line. Goods transported on this corridor include Canadian softwood lumber, coal, paper products, and general merchandise. The CPR runs regular potash trains along this line to the Canpotex export terminal in Oregon.

Bill and Black Jack make me laugh a lot. Here, I could barely take the photo for giggling.
Black Jack, sitting in Bill's "easy chair" hands, but never taking her eyes of the squirrel across the road. It still makes me laugh when I remember this moment.
