OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few weeks ago while I was having some work done on my house, I remarked to Shane, one of the carpenters about his skill. At the time, he was standing on the top rung of a ladder (where it warns you not to stand), holding a piece of moulding, making a 45 degree cut with his battery powered circular saw, and talking to me at the same time. He put the piece in place and it fit damned near…

Before I say what I want to say, know that I have nothing at all against Carl Icahn, or what he said to the AIG CEO … nothing at all. There’s no rich guy hateration going on here. Dude’s a billionaire, wants more, owns a percentage of AIG, and his words carry weight! That said, I’d never been so close to the fire as now. Back and October, Carl Icahn, activist investor and corporate raider who made his billions by…

Walking is one of the things that Vanessa and I like to do together. It’s fun. It’s healthy, and we can have conversations while doing it, unlike watching a movie or reading. In February, I bought a couple of FitBits. One for me and one for her. As she lives pretty far away and it’s not practical for us to walk together everyday, we at least can use our FitBits to provide a little bit of healthy competition and incentive…

There’s nothing quite like a little hide and and seek on a warm, spring afternoon, right?. So, why not do it?! I was walking down a small greenway┬ánear my home when I saw movement on a tree trunk. It was a skink darting back between the gap in bark of the tree. I stopped, focused my camera and waited, hoping to catch him the next time that he came out … and I waited … and I waited, but he…

Vanessa and I spent a pleasant few hours at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC, close to Myrtle Beach. For the most part, we were walking together looking at the beautiful plants and statues, but for a part of it, we sent our separate ways. I headed back to these trees that I had seen when we first entered. While I stared up at them, deep in thought and appreciation, one of the employees walked by and told me their…

Yes. I am featuring a nearly empty roll of toilet paper, but there’s a reason! Tony! This scene depicted here is not an unusual one in the guest bathroom of my house. Tony will stop by, hang out a bit, etc. When he leaves, the condition of the roll seems to look like this. Sometimes, I think that he’s stealing the paper, but I don’t know! I’ve asked on numerous occasions that he replace the roll with a full roll…
