Government Shutdown

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2019 |

The area around my house in the city is not particularly scenic. Many of the houses are very old and run down, and a number of them have lots of junk in the yards. Still, I manage to find some pretty things to photograph. There are a few of these bushes with the bright red […]

Fun With Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2018 |

Before moving on to Slim’s story about Windy, I want to share this picture. It’s the first grandchild coloring to grace the front of my refrigerator in my new home, and it was done by my granddaughter Becky who is in college, which proves you can color at any age. BTW, I hate to admit […]

Posted by mcm0704 on November 9, 2018 |

Remember the logic tests we took in elementary school where we picked what item doesn’t belong with the others? Here’s one for you. What doesn’t belong on the shelf in my living room? My heart is heavy for the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California early Thursday morning that left 13 dead, […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 29, 2018 |

We aren’t seeing many pretty fall colors here in my small town, but I saw this tree in my next-door-neighbor’s yard. It’s the first really bold color I’ve seen. I’m hoping there will be more.
