It’s still a bit warm and humid in the Carolinas, but the mornings are now in the mid to low 60s, of which I am very appreciative! This is another shot from my day in Charleston. I was very tempted to join this man and the kids that were darting in out of the water, but I had my electronics with me. I’m sure that Rob would have held them for me, but I wanted to take pictures too! I’ve…

It’s days like this, hot and humid days, when I think of the mountains, frequently. I think of how nice and cool it is atop of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River – right here in little ol’ North Carolina. I was up there a few weeks ago. It was 90+ in Charlotte, but atop of Mt. Mitchell, a nice, cool 58, or so. It was lovely and a bit chilly. However, thanks to one Willis…

In yesterday’s post, I featured a picture of this car and Cedric wanted to know the story. Well, this shot was taken in Antigua Guatemala on Cerro de la cruz, or, The Hill of the Cross. On this particular day, there were quite a few people there. One of my fellow students, Meghan, and I walked up to the top of the hill. According to my FitBit, about 34 stories. Not too bad. While we were up there, we noticed…

I bought my house 5 years ago. At the same time, I bought a new washer and a dryer.

The dryer has always seemed to be lacking in performance. It took a really long time to dry, especially for larger loads. I thought, well, it is…

One morning, in Guatemala, there were 5 of us sitting around the breakfast table. Kayla was sitting to my right, Adéle directly across from me, Meghan to her left, and Pablo, one of the residents of the house, to my immediate left, at the head of the table. We were having a conversation about something. As normally happens with conversations, there was a lull in it. Everyone became quiet. 3 … 2 … 1 … I like tacos!!! ~Kayla Suddenly…

In George Orwell’s book, 1984, about a “future” dystopia, the main antagonist is Big Brother/The Thought Police/The Government. We already have The Thought Police, considering rampant PC, or political correctness. Anyway, BB is a bit paranoid, too … Please turn off all cell phones. Cameras are strictly prohibited in the courtroom as photography endangers the lives of court employees! The other day I went down to the main courthouse in Charlotte. My friend, Tim, had asked me to come be…
