Dad’s old train set

Dusty, and could use some touching up, but still just as loved (by me) as when my dad opened it for Christmas some time in the early 1940s. I also still have the track for it, and most of the buildings. Last time I hooked it up, it even still …

Randomosity

Tiny Kitten has decided there’s something she likes more than chewing yarn (but not more than chewing plastic)… snuggles! The funny thing is, though, that you can’t make her snuggle. She’s got to come to you on your own terms, usually when you’re a few minutes away from standing up …

Thryallis

I have long been jealous of the little old man who lives down the road and has his yard almost covered with these bushes. I love the way they’re green all year but then flower in the AUTUMN! Not in the Spring, when everything else is blooming! And of course …

I’m living in the future!

Ruby Falls

Oops. I forgot to take a picture yesterday (who needs a photo of me wrapping soap and organizing lip balm?!) – so here’s another from the archives. Tim and I on vacation, Thanksgiving 2005. Lesson learned from this jaunt? I would not make a good spelunker; apparently my claustrophobia, while …
