Heel Makes It Even More Realistic

July 11, 2011

Omaha has a wonderful historical museum, the Durham Western Heritage Museum.  It was down the street from where I worked, and at least once a week I spent my lunch hour there.  I saw exhibits ranging from the history of coins and currency in the United States (much more interesting than I would have thought) […]

Immediately Start Laughing

July 10, 2011

My husband and brother-in-law love their jokes, often dragging my sister into them.  She gives it back pretty good too.  One Christmas, she sassed her favorite boy toy one time too many.  Since I had the camera aimed at her, he decided to wrap his hands around her neck.  She immediately started yelling, making him laugh even harder.  Catching […]

The last vacation that I took with my parents before getting married was up in Canada.  For a change, we didn’t camp in a tent but instead rented a cabin that had real beds and a real kitchen.  It was quite a treat!  We took the dog with, which we also did not do very […]

I was out in the garden last night to take some pictures and realized – gasp! – there were enough beans to start picking!  I didn’t think anything would be ready for a few more weeks, so it was a very pleasant surprise. Word for tomorrow – STUNT.  If you prefer to work ahead, see […]

I’m too weary tonight from my travels to do the post that I intended.  Instead, here is a picture of the birthday girl all dressed up and going in to work. Word for tomorrow – GASP.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”. To see […]

Resistance Is Futile

My favorite boy toy and I love watching science fiction, especially Dr. Who and Star Trek – all of them.  Can anyone say “the trouble with tribbles“? There are so many favorite phrases.  From the Borg in Star Trek, The Next Generation came “resistance is futile – you will be assimilated”.  The Dalek’s on Dr. Who […]

Happy birthday today to the greatest collaboration I’ve ever had with my favorite boy toy.  I did not rob the cradle to marry that man :)  He only LOOKS like he’s 16 years old. Word for tomorrow – BLOGGER’S CHOICE.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word […]

Bar Owned By Grandparents in Chicago

My husband’s grandparents owned a bar for many years.  They made a good living at it – enough for my mother-in-law to have nice clothes and a nice lifestyle.  “Bud” was actually her stepfather and she adored him.  When he served in the Pacific during World War II, she sent him school pictures and wrote […]

Happy To Be Here

I was happy to see the brown eyed susans flow by my window in Virginia.  The trees were brilliant green and so dense, the sky was a narrow blue strip. I was happy to see the yellow daylilies out my window in North Carolina, the sky now wide open with a never ending road. South Carolina’s palm trees gave way to Georgia’s pines, and […]

Consecutive Photos For Context

July 1, 2011

I’ve been enjoying doing a 365 photo challenge this year.  Not every day has a great picture, but many are very acceptable. Both now and previous to the challenge, I enjoyed take consecutive shots.  When I look back at the sequence, a story unfolds in a way that a single photo could not do. Take, […]
