When I get to Harrison Park I always like to pay my respects at the Black History Cairn, and I figured I didn't need more new pictures because I did have many in my files from past visits. Sadly, though I have hunted for several days, I've been unable to find those old pictures. Luckily I did find one earlier post from which I could copy these photos.

Believe it or not, a month ago today was was our anniversary. Now we never make a fuss over birthdays or anniversaries, but this was our 50th! Both of us wanted to do something special, and it started with a visit to Harrison Park in Owen Sound. I rode the One-Mile Trail and Mrs. F.G. walked the entire way with me.

I'm making progress in recovery and getting back to 'normal', while noticing lots of interesting things around town. I made it downtown to McGinty's Cafe for lunch with my coffee buddies yesterday, so that really made me feel I have recovered, though my voice still sounds sort of croaky.

Yesterday we headed out to the locally famous Keady Market, where you can buy just about anything under the sun. Keady Market started out as a livestock market, which it still is, but now vendors can rent space for stalls selling everything from fruits and veggies (which is what we were after) to sunglasses, hats and sheets.

Mrs. F.G. is a great one for deadheading in the garden. In theory if you clip off blossoms that are fading you can encourage a second spurt of new blooms. It works well with some plants but not others. So last week the garden got its late summer haircut.

We've been watching two Monarchs emerge from their chrysalis. Makes you glad you let the Milkweed stay! And it's yet another look at the miracles of nature.
