Whale of a Good Time

Because Sunday was Easter, they celebrated her birthday Saturday afternoon.  He took She out for a drive.  They visited several of the most beautiful spots on the island. At one point they were on the north side above Lime Kiln Park. He took She there to look for whales (even though it is a bit early in the season).

She stood at the retaining wall taking in the vast expanse of blue water and blue sky before her. Even the Cascade Mountains were blue.

Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue.

She said, “I don’t see any whales — so you’re about to hear one!”

He said, “Don’t be silly. Of course you can’t see Wales. This isn’t even the right ocean!”


She had a very happy birthday, even if she did spend it with a smart-alec.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. So your birthday fell on Easter this year? It was a weekend of celebrations!! So glad you had a nice day sightseeing! Happy belated birthday, my friend!

  2. .
    Sometimes when the one you like becomes a “smart-alec” you have to grin and bear it. You are a trooper, or like Mrs. Jim claims to be, a real pioneer woman.

  3. I’m sorry I missed it! But that doesn’t lessen the joy and the happiness I pray you will experience this year!

    If he wasn’t a smart-alec, you wouldn’t find him nearly as endearing…you, my dear, need an intelligent man to keep up with your wit!
