Underwater + Hidden Treasure = Sunken Ship…
This is one of the many boats used by Mel Fisher and his team of treasure hunters..how apropos that one of his boats would find its end at the bottom of the ocean.
Wikipedia….Mel Fisher (August 21, 1922 – December 19, 1998) was an American treasure hunter best known for finding the 1622 wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de Atocha named after a shrine in Madrid for protection. He discovered the wreck July 20, 1985. The estimated $450 million cache recovered, known as “The Atocha Motherlode,” included 40 tons of gold and silver; there were some 114,000 of theSpanish silver coins known as “pieces of eight“, gold coins, Colombian emeralds, gold and silver artifacts, and 1000 silver ingots. Large as it was, this was only roughly half of the treasure that went down with the Atocha. The wealthiest part of the ship, the stern castle, is yet to be found.
Butterflies love sweet tasty treats…So do I!
My husband has always wanted a cactus garden. I on the other hand am less than interested. My lack of enthusiasm comes from an incident as a child when I ended up in the cactus garden…not one of my happier memories.
My husband finally has his cactus garden…It is a beautiful mix…and it’s not very likely that I will take tumble into it, but only time will tell.

Today is Earth Day…and this fuzzy little creature was waiting for me when I got home. Actually, I am not sure how long he has been hanging out…I discovered him 3 hours ago and he hasn’t moved an inch. I wonder what he’s up to?
I am in a bit of a quandary… You see I have a dilemma. A catch 22 if you will. I am at a deadlock, an impasse maybe even a quagmire. I am in a bit of a pinch, a jam even a pickle, and I might even be in a tight spot.
I find myself perplexed and uncertain as to what to do in this particular situation.
So when in doubt and faced with indecision…go with your first instinct.
One of each Please!
Pistachio Gelato….Dreamy, creamy, salty, sweet, nutty richness! You will need to get your own cup because I’m not sharing!
For those of you who have been around for awhile you will remember this beauty…and for the rest of you I hope you enjoy our little yard visitor from a couple of summers ago.
