Celebrating the Fourth of July

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2020 |

Happy Monday Morning When I walk with my dog in the mornings, I pass by several places where there are pretty flowers, some domestic and some wild. These wild irises are blooming just under some domestic ones. These are in a field where a house once stood, so somebody had planted the big irises. Both […]

Posted by mcm0704 on April 6, 2020 |

This pandemic is getting more and more scary by the day, especially here in the U.S as we now have three times the rate of infections as any other country. This is sad news considering that had there been better planning and a quicker response on the National level, we might be looking at much […]
