Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving, ‚ÄčThis day in November of the year 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth to give thanks to the Almighty for their survival and a bountiful harvest. This Thanksgiving I too give thanks for my survival, the culmination of a decade of hardship, loss, sickness and death. I Watched Planes, … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017

Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness

This title and powerful truth of course, a quote from the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. One of our most sacred rights in this country is our right to free speech, followed by freedom of assembly and freedom of association. These are called "unalienable rights", rights so important that the government is forever banned … Continue reading Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness

The Art of Walking Away

Had a pretty good day today, have to say so myself! Started out with my usual hike up the mountainside with the puppies. It was a beautiful cool cloudy morning portending the rainy day we have had. The forest is beautiful this year, very green, almost like the rain forest of the Great Northwest only … Continue reading The Art of Walking Away

Turning Point

One of those memories from one year ago popped onto my Facebook today, it was a great memory of a great day, breakfast with my beloved cousin whom I hadn't seen for too many years to even count. However the good part of that day was overshadowed by the memory of the rest of the … Continue reading Turning Point

Little Grouse Mountain

Woke up early this morning with no real plan for the day, but as always I threw my camera in the truck... just in case. The doggies both did their business quickly, which is a good thing, and a big time saver! So instead of my usual trip to the gym I decided to head … Continue reading Little Grouse Mountain

10,000 Captures

Today was a milestone of sorts... I hadn't noticed until I transferred the images to my laptop, but today my camera rolled over 10,000 images and started over at 00001. And as fate would have it, #10,000 was my favorite one of the day. I was at the library in the reading room checking out … Continue reading 10,000 Captures

Tour of the Mines

Had a day off from unloading Walmart trucks yesterday... Didn't bother to make any plans as I am usually so¬† trashed from the trucks the day before that I am unable to function, but unfortunately I was up way early anyway with nothing to do. Was going to make my usual rounds running errands, which … Continue reading Tour of the Mines

Surreal Day

Stopped by the Garden on my way back from giving a friend a ride to the cancer Pavilion at Penrose to see if I could find the bighorn sheep. No luck there, but the view of Pikes Peak was kind of pretty. Well worth stopping at the visitor's center for a few shots anyway. Been … Continue reading Surreal Day

All Circuits are Busy

I've decided I need to have a recording of the telephone company's "all circuits are busy, try later" message for personal use. For example... I know my friend only gets paid on the first of the month and occasionally runs short at the end of the month. Well she had been telling me for a … Continue reading All Circuits are Busy

If This Jacket Could Talk

If This Jacket Could Talk As luck would have it, I got a really good deal on a new Gor-Tex jacket the other day. Later that day as I went to zip up my old one it didn't feel right, looked down and the zipper was broken... zip all you want, but it isn't going … Continue reading If This Jacket Could Talk
