I just finished reading a book, The Very Cool Life Code by Drew Rozell, PhD. In it he talks, of course, about having a very cool life. As I read through this book, which is pretty short, no nonsense, and to the point, I came to the realization that: Hey! I have a pretty cool life already, but am very much on the way to making it a very cool life. Yesterday, as I walked out from having my monthly…

Last year when I moved into this neighborhood, I noticed that one particular house had sunflowers peeking, no, soaring above the top of the fence line. I remember thinking how pretty they were. It was at the end of summer, so they didn’t last very long. I thought nothing more of it. This year, the flowers are in fine form and sticking several feet about the fence. Now, the gentleman who lives in this house, I see him several times…

Alas, it’s a done deal. The temperature today was damn near 100, seemingly in both heat and humidity. Lots of sweating was had. Summer wedding, middle of June, Alabama. Not a good idea. Anyway, we had a great time. Now, when I rest, time to process pictures … about 1,500 pictures all told. Sigh. Not a job that I’d want full time, but one that I will gladly do for Pedro and Ana Kay. 🙂

Around 10:00 AM, they start to appear outside, ready to play the day away. It brings back memories of the…

Lord willing and the creek don’t rise … I’ll be in Sydney, Australia on July 15th. My flight leaves on Wednesday evening, going to San Francisco. I leave there Wednesday evening, have a 14 hour flight, and arrive in Sydney on Friday morning at 6:00 AM thanks to a 14 hour time difference between there and Charlotte, 17 hours difference between Sydney and San Francisco. On the way back, I leave on Saturday and arrive here on Saturday, quite jet…

I say that if I let Hobbs stop and smell everything that he wanted to smell, we’d never complete our 90 minute walk in less than, say 600 minutes! Today, there was just something about the light that was very appealing. So, our normal 90 minute walk took about 2 hours almost … and it wasn’t Hobbs’ fault. The blame rests squarely with me. I was doing lots of stopping and picture taking. I decided to take the M9 with…
