This morning I noticed quite a number of juvenile rabbits playing here and there. I guess that they’ve left the nest now and are on their own. As I was finishing up, about to head into the house, I noticed one such fellow in my neighbor’s yard. He saw me and went for cover. He hid behind a small flower, ears sticking up above the flower, eyes hidden. Not a very good hiding place, but pretty funny to me. I…

This morning was a quiet morning, a normal morning. I got up early, enjoyed the quiet beginnings of the day, brushed my teeth, put on some clothes, went outside and did a very small amount of cleanup – pulling weeds – around my cone flowers, and added some seed to the bird feeder. When I came back in, I wanted a sip of my Spicy V8 juice. Mmmmmmm! Tasty! I opened the refrigerator, expecting to see about 1/2 bottle remaining…

There was much buzz yesterday ahead of winter storm Remus. As a matter of fact, the governor of North Carolina declared a state of emergency based on the forecast by The Weather Channel, which called for 5 – 8 inches of the white stuff. Personally, I didn’t believe it if the temperatures were to hold where they said, around 32 or 33. Mostly we got very heavy snow mixed with rain, yielding about MAYBE 1 inch of snow and a…

See those mountains out there? They look pretty small, don’t they? Well, I figured that they weren’t but a couple of miles away that I could easily walk to the base, or get close to see the detail. (What a rookie!). As I continued to walk and walk and walk towards them, no more detail was resolved. There was nothing but an unspoken promise that if I kept walking, I’d get there. Eventually, I gave up, realizing that they were…

This is Basilica San Albino, just outside of Las Cruces, NM. I wanted to have a look inside, but unfortunately, there was a funeral in progress; however, a man who seemed to be in-the-know, told me that the funeral would finish around 11:00 AM and that I would be able to enter the basilica and take some pictures after the services. So, I walked around for a bit, had lunch, then decided to try again. Holy shit! It’s cold out…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…
