They say that the early bird gets the worm, and that may be true. Looked at the other way, the early worm gets eaten! Not so good for the worm to be early, right? Well, this is neither about worms nor birds, neither of which I saw this morning when I was stomping around in the snow at a pleasant 13 degrees! As is becoming normal, at least in fits and starts, I wake up at 3:00 AM, stay awake…

The Snowpocalypse is here! Well, maybe not all tht bad, but it is snowing in Charlotte and the schools are closed … well, closed yesterday because of the “forecast” of snow. 🙂 No worries, though. I don’t drink milk, preferring to drink almond milk, though I don’t know how they milk those almonds! 🙂 Thoughts of milking almonds are not important at this moment, though, not nearly as important as bread and milk!

As it turns out, I wasn’t! As I mentioned a few posts back, I had been looking at and thinking about a new camera. Eventually, I decided it against it. However, I still like to look. So, I was looking at the Sony A7R III, which is a full-frame mirrorless camera. Initially, I thought: How cool is that?

As I approached the cloud, I could hear the machine and the brushes, but could only see dust. The sun…

The temperatures have been at or below freezing for a few days. Today, I wanted to get out in the afternoon and have a walk in the park. There is a stream that runs through it and I wanted to see if it had been cold enough to freeze all or part of it. Fortunately, it has been. I was able to spend a few peaceful moments next to it, listening to the water flow beneath the ice. I took…

I was the first to report it, right here! The aliens were snatching people off of the street, leaving only a shoe as evidence after the snatch! It’s been very quiet for a while … or so it seemed. I’d been on the look out for evidence of other abductions, but didn’t find any of the same evidence. Then! I started noticing gloves, or should I say “glove”. At first, I thought: It’s just an innocent-looking single glove, but I…
