On summer holiday weekend sI have ofter observed WWII vintage aircraft flying over Fire Island. Friday evening I photographed two different planes. I believe one is a B-024 "Luberator" and the other is perhaps a B-17 Flying Fortress.

Great View: Great Day!

What a beautiful late summer morning here in Cherry Grove! Temperature is in the 80s with a light southwest breeze providing a cooling. It doesn't get much better than this!

Jackass Republican Peter T. King

From the New York Times:
Representative Peter T. King, Republican of New York, a member of both the Intelligence and Homeland Security committees,...said he had seen nothing to justify scaling back federal police grants. He said there was no evidence that giving the police heavy weaponry and equipment worsened the situation in Ferguson or led to abuses elsewhere.
What a jackass Peter T. King is! Was he not watching any television or reading any news accounts? The local police in Ferguson, MO overreacted and appeared in full battle mode in response to protesters. Police should not confront US citizens in full battle gear!

Beautiful In Blue

Our deck garden this morning: finally the beautiful morning glorys begin to bloom. Each year Ii plant seeds in May and wait and hope for the delicate flowers. There was a big smile on my face when I spotted the first bloom.

Amsterdam Dining

We enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam during the last several days. One highlight of our visit was culinary. We enjoyed dining at Japanese, French and Dutch restaurants.
