It has been ages since anybody played a game of Shuffleboard. But there are finally enough people here that want to play. And Jonas Miller is back from his trip, so he keeps the court clean and in shape.

Determining if the yellow disk is on the white line. It was and so it doesn't make a score.
This puppy is feisty and gentle. It would bark nonstop whenever I was on the bike trail. But the previous time I would not budge, but kept my eye on him and let him bark until he was hoarse. Today he never as much as looked at me, nor did he make one sound of a bark. I guess he knows where our boundary lines are.
These two people and their leader are professional alligator catchers. The leader is behind the tree out of sight. I don't know the whole story but the huge alligator who has been making its home in the Phillippi Creek north of Bahia Vista wanted to feast on Jean Bender's cats a few days ago.
The cats were smart enough to get up on the roof of a vehicle, out of the alligator's reach. So these people were hired to catch or trap the alligator. Sunday evening he was still on the loose, hiding someplace and I haven't seen Jean today, so I don't have the latest on the alligator.
Poor Sailor has been trained not to be himself. He has been trained to control his Dog Nature. He won't bark, nor make a sound, or jump off and go after the squirrel.
Ben informed me that Sailor will not cave in to his dog nature. He watched closely every time a squirrel came for a peanut. He watched the squirrels fight their territorial rights and who should have the next peanut.
I admire his trainer and I admire Sailor's willing to submit and just be a humble dog. But I also feel sorry for him that he can't just be a dog doing dog things like chasing squirrels. But then he is also a much beloved dog who admires his owners, those who have trained him.
This man is in desperate need for new shoes. He came walking into the park carrying one shoe and something that looked like a nail. A few minutes later he left the pavilion again wearing both shoes. But his shoes are so ragged and well worn that he has to drag his feet in order to keep his feet in his shoes.
