Our Snow

The kids around here pretend that the flowering trees’ last stand for the season is drifting snow. That, and the sand dunes. I’m told that the last time that it snowed here was in the late 80′s. I don’t mind.

Bikes, Shorts and Ice Cream on December 29th

And if I’d remembered to put the battery back in my camera before heading out on my walk tonight you would have seen photos of those things. We had another sunny 80 degree day here and we’re enjoying them while they last because we’ll be back to reality next week. There was also a great […]

I didn’t want the season to go by without grabbing a shot of this pretty Christmas window at Dottie B’s Florist. It seemed strange taking this shot in 70 degree night time temperatures but, again, I endured.

See if you can find the Fairbanks House in it. And I’m just going to warn you that […]

Pardon Me Sir, But You Need a Doctor

This dummy is a frequent visitor to Centre Street and shows up in a variety of poses in a couple of different locations. This appears to be his “Sunning with Mangled Legs” pose. The other day he was sporting some holiday attire but he keeps us guessing.

I Found my USB Cable

I’ve been unable to upload any photos since I misplaced my cable on Monday and I really had been looking for it, but I knew that it was time to get serious when my sister called to see what had happened to me since I hadn’t been blogging. Nice to know my family reads regularly. […]
