Don’t Put Anything Near The 2 Windows

When we were at Florence’s last week, I didn’t take pictures of the interior. Another time, perhaps. However, I did see some rustic outbuildings that caught my eye. She gave me a very short tour of the grounds. Unfortunately the black flies descended and drove her indoors. Now that means I not only would like permission to document the original dining and living rooms, I need to get the answer […]

Share Your World – June 12, 2017

Remember this past winter when I was bemoaning the fact that I had too much time on my hands? I’m pleased to report that the change in seasons has removed that challenge. That and the fact that I’m busy with the Cobalt Historical Society, big time. Early in June, we held a Speakers’ Symposium, a first for our group.

Changing Seasons – April 2017

As the month of April unfolded and as I started to collect images for this monthly blog post, frankly, I considered giving this entry a pass. The idea, essentially as I see it, is to show how the countryside changes from month to month.  January I showed you snow, February snow, March… more snow… and at the outset, April wasn’t much different. But thirty days later, I’m happy to report, […]

My Gray*

  *or, My Grey. Today I am not going to delve into the joys of the Anguish Languish and the assorted ways of doing write right. Right? Onward. Or I could say, “Tally ho!” ***   ***   *** The Cowboy was my first boyfriend, my first marriage, my first divorce. And because of The Cowboy, my first horse.
