Rainbows Over Missouri

About a half hour later this appeared…

Meanwhile, in my front yard…

Not only did we have a garage sale on Saturday, we also had a big old oak tree taken down.

Sweet Mary – Last Night / My Road

Google Birthday Wishes

I probably shouldn’t be, but I was surprised when I went to Google today to search for something and saw this as the header.

This is all because today is my birthday. It was a pleasant surprise.



Groundhog Day


This little critter was taking refuge under my grandson’s car the other day.   They saw something run under there and stuck their phone down and snapped this picture.  It looks both cute and scary at the same time.   Click to enlarge.

The results are interesting and confusing.  In January of 2013 […]


Panting Pals


Trixie loves going for a ride.  We drove over to the old house to work on a couple small things.
