Lady Bug Stretch

Try as she might, this lady bug could not stretch far enough to reach that leaf.
I watched her for a long time - these are truly
amazing little creatures!


Just a Peek

For a brief moment I caught a glimpse of his beautiful world.


A Thirst for Wonder

We all have a thirst for wonder. It's a deeply human quality. Science and religion are both bound up with it. What I'm saying is, you don't have to make stories up, you don't have to exaggerate. There's wonder and awe enough in the real world. Nature's a lot better at inventing wonders than we are.
~ Carl Sagan


After the Rain

Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth;  without rain, there would be no life.

A Hint of Red

My Favorite Pics of Mom and Dad

These were taken several years ago at Thanksgiving. Before their health problems. Dad had
Quad Bypass Surgery Feb 28 2009 and Mom was in hospital from March 23
to August 7 2009.
We often joke that Mom took care of Dad for the first 60 years and
it's his turn now for the next 60 :)
They will celebrate 65 years of marriage on September 23, 2012. They have been Fabulous
Role Models and the best parents I could have ever wished for.
Love you Mom and Dad!!


Baby Girl grows up

My baby girl Brianna is growing up. She turns 17 today.
She has been a joy to me every moment of her life.
She is one of the kindest people I have ever had the
pleasure of knowing.
Happy Birthday! I Love You!


A Few of My Favorite Things

A hummingbird - do you see the little spot of red?
Dogwood leaves - starting to turn.
And a Lovely butterfly - a Question Mark or Comma perhaps?
