meet taco

This is my Dad's newest chihuahua. He's had him for about 8 or 9 months, and he absolutely loves the kids:

My Dad was not doing so well on Sunday and Monday. He was very dizzy and very tired. He's feeling better now. In fact, this is what I saw this morning when I got off the phone with Stefan:
Yes, that's right. He was trimming his hedge with the weed whacker.

Yesterday evening we went to the park. Joel found a cool place to hang out:
Hope you're all having a good week!

Is that Sapperton park? Ahhh... brings back memories as a kid playing in there.
Hope to see you while you are back, Barb. Best wishes for your Dad and the rest of your family!

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
