Today is my birthday, once again. Now, I’m officially eligible for some senior discounts. Perhaps I’ll have to start eating my dinner at 4:00 PM with the rest of the crowd of a certain age. 🙂 Each year at this time, I stop to think about what I’ve done, what I want to do, and also things that I fear doing, for whatever reason. I try to cross one of the fear-based things off of my list. I’m still thinking…

The chicks above my door are growing. I’m sure that they’ll be gone soon and I don’t have a really good photo of them just yet. This is the ‘best’ one that I have. I like it because it is somewhat abstract, but shows their activity. Momma comes and feeds them many times per day. She stays quite busy! Whenever I hear them cheeping, I grab my camera, try to get a shot; however, the angle is such that it…

Not Tony, but I like the shot anyway. I just finished reading Cedric’s blog post, The chip off the block. In the post he talks about his daughter’s photography and shares his obvious joy about her art as well as well as sharing a few pictures. If you’ve not read it, it’s certainly worth a stop by to read about it. After reading his post, I thought about my two guys. Neither is interested in photography, particularly, or any other…

Each time that I went, I knew a tiny bit more of Spanish. For years, I’ve been saying to myself that I was going to learn another language. This year, starting in January, I finally committed to it. I’m learning Spanish, or should I…

As a kid I used to raid my mother’s cupboard and plant all manner of things: beans, popcorn, any type of seed. I just liked to see things grow, I suppose. I decided to plant a few things this year, so I went over to Home Depot, got a little planter box, some soil, and made plans. I told my neighbor, Reesa, about it, and she donated 4 tomato plants. I planted them, along with one cilantro plant, and the…

I was in Akron this past weekend for the Memorial Day weekend. I had a lot of fun visiting with relatives, very, very loud relatives. 🙂 Of course, during my time there, I did my morning walks. One morning, as I was on the way to downtown, I looked across the highway and saw the hotel, formerly named, Holiday Inn Cascade Plaza. The current name is: Radisson Hotel, Akron City Center. I smiled. I smiled at the memories of taking…
