Mr T and Me

Mr T and I go ‘way back’ – usually I encounter him crossing my driveway, but on one recent morning I sighted him crossing the road by my house just as I returned from town.

My first encounter with Mr. T can be found here.

Kitty Corner

At the country store near where I live, there is a lovely colony of kitties.

Although these kitties are feral, and they will never be lap kitties, they really are beautiful, and they afforded me the time recently to photograph them.



What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now. ~Author Unknown

I hadn’t realized how long it’s been since I’ve taken a walk outside the boundaries of my own property…then, outside last night I heard her braying.

Last summer, I took regular evening walks, usually to clear my mind from my studies. This year, I found I have become housebound, and now I have resolved to begin walking up the road again – if not for exercise, then at least to see this dear creature.

Home, Home on the Range

Just another afternoon waiting on the school bus

In the beginning, all is quiet

At first, I was just watching the pretty white bird in the pasture across the road

bulls butting heads

Dad putting Junior in his place

Mom runs to the rescue

Mom to the rescue with sibling in tow

My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it.
