Forever Afternoon

Tuesday afternoon.
I'm just beginning to see,
Now I'm on my way.
It doesn't matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.  
— "The Afternoon: Forever Afternoon" by the Moody Blues
from their 1967 album "Days of Future Passed"

It was the very sort of winter day that serves as a reminder of why we put up with those 106° days during the summer: sunny without a cloud in the sky, with temps in the upper 50s. Perfect spa day.
I don't know what a spa is, but it's putting Jaz to sleep.
Not me. I'm wide awake.
Strange, but all of a sudden a nap does sound kinda nice.
Can't. Stop. Yawning.
Wow. They even serve lunch.
Feeling refreshed. How about a rousing game of bite-the face?
Ha! Jaz thinks he's gonna bust a move on me.
I'll get you, old man.
I only asked for a trim, but she cut off about 6".
Still, it's a nice facility. Look at all this clover!

The sun felt so amazing that Mr. Fry and I fetched chairs and beer to survey our kingdom and contemplate our takeover of the world. Another great day to be alive.

sounds like a great afternoon! I'm envious of your warm winters, but you can keep the 106 days in the summer. My cool Canadian self would wither and melt in that heat. :-)

So glad that you have your boyz home for a few days...must be a treat to have them right there!

You had me laughing out loud!! What a great post!! And your wonderful pictures made me warm from all that beautiful sunshine. I want to grab a Stella and join you and Mr. Fry!!

I can almost feel the sunshine. What a great afternoon!

I could use some warmness here...although we haven't had to build the fire in the mornings much (so far) this winter, so I shouldn't complain!

Baby D is getting to be so big and adult-looking! Yay.

Yep, you're right. While you're enjoying your warm sunny winter days and dreading summer, we're dreading the rest of our snowy, cold winter and dreaming about our gorgeous, clear, cool-breeze summer days. sigh.

I can't help it, but Baby D just cracks me up. He's at such a gangly, awkward age right now and is both terribly goofy looking and sweetly adorable!

That does look like a very nice day! I wish you could bottle up some of that warm sunshine and send it my way. The horses looked like they enjoyed their spa day.

Sounds like a perfect day for you and the ponies. I sure like the sounds of your weather. Although we are above freezing there is snow on the ground and its awful windy, soesnt feel spa like at all.

Sounds like one of those perfect days.
