Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare. Those of you who have been visiting for a while…

This week, I am in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, or SMA. While following Niels Henrikson, on Facebook, I noticed that he was going to leave Toronto, Ontario, Canada in early December and head down to SMA for a few months, until the end of March. I contacted him and asked if he would mind if I made a visit to SMA. He said that he’d be glad to show me around. So, here I am, some 3 months later…

Hobbs: October 31, 1999 – February 15, 2013 My heart had been heavy, for quite a few weeks, my mind laboring intensely about what was the “kind” thing, the “right” thing to do. I’d read so many articles about euthanasia, understanding not only what it was, but when it was appropriate, and, like most things, everyone has an opinion. Actually, I had probably already made the decision as I watched the decline of my good friend, Hobbs; however, I wanted…

Georgetown, SC is just up the road a little way from Charleston, about 90 minutes or so. This weekend, I was in Georgetown. Initially, I thought that this was the first time that I’d been there, but when I got there, started walking around the historic boardwalk, I had a distinct feeling of familiarity. I discounted it almost immediately because I was pretty sure that I hadn’t been there. I would have remembered it, right? After walking around a bit…

Fritz and Pedro – Frio River, Leakey, TX 1996 or so While continuing to dig through the archives, I came upon this negative, taken with my Yashica Mat 124G, back some 16+ years ago. Of course, I have cropped it because I felt that it worked a little better this way rather than square. I don’t have a lot of photos of my first Miniature Schnauzer, Fritz. I had Fritz for about 11 years (1988-1999) before he got out and…

Well, the count says 8,503 photos, though in truth, I have no idea how many I shots I took this year. After my massive clean up, there’s no way to tell. It doesn’t matter. I had a great year this year. I traveled a lot. I met Anita, Bill, and Ibarionex in California – that was a nice threefer!. Went to Joshua Tree National Park. Visited my friend Richard in Texas. Went to The Grand Canyon, Mexico, and The Bahamas…
