Bill's post #8

Bill here, Carol is encouraging me to do a post on my own.
Here are what seem to be ancient looking tribal masks but that may simply be the result of how the grass has been mowed.
 Red tinged sunset over our Drake Street apartment building.
 Lovely red flower in a Yaletown florist's display.
 Having a delicious latte and cookie at Bean Around the World bistro in Yaletown.
 Street scene on the way home.
 A shop that will shape your eyebrows just like the heroines in a Bollywood movie.
The Roundhouse at night.
Does this look like the Incredible Hulk with his green visage?
My first solo post! Thanks to everyone who drops by with bonus points if you leave a comment.

    1. I meant to say that the first photo Bill, reminds me of 'swallow nests'.

    2. Hi Jim. Thanks, Swallow nests is such a perceptive observation.

  5. Ha! I love your ghostly green, grocery carrying picture! I hope no one I know will have Bollywood eyebrows! Shudder! The bonus for me, dear brother, is that you are getting better every day!!!
    Hugs, Phyllis

  6. Good job, Bill. I think it is wonderful that you are joining in with Carol on the blog postings. I think you look at your world differently, more discerning when you think about writing about it...capture those details.... life is in the details, as they say!!

  8. Hi Bill, I am Maria’s Bill. Enjoyed reading your blog especially the part about the bonus points. Are they like Frequent Flyer Miles and can I cash them in at my local Financial Institution or any Hospital of my choice? Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Bill, Nice to "meet" you finally. Carol and I still remember our quality time spent with Maria in South Surrey. You can try to redeem these bonus points but heed the old adage that you may only get what you paid for! Carol's Bill

  9. Oh Bill, welcome back! Your incredible Hulk cracked me up - now that's our old Bill talking! Didn't we use to grow those "tribal masks" in the corners of the living room?? Bill, I can't tell you how thrilled I was to read your posts, your humor is second to none so it's great seeing it shine through again. Please keep it up - they'll become my day brightener! Big hugs, Bev xoxo

  10. So .... flying solo and giving out bonus points. Well done, Bill. Love your sense of humour and was quite taken by the Incredibly Handsome Hulk photo. Do you deliver groceries to Ottawa? If so, could you bring me a treat from Bean Around the World at the same time? They were so good and you look so satisfied with yours. I look forward to extra, extra bonus points if my post is the last one and I'll be watching for your next post.

  12. And now I'm last, boss. Since you have some influence with Santa I must put on my thinking cap. Lovely to hear from you.
