Memorial Day 2017

Manchester Bombing
Because I'm not watching the news much anymore, I didn't know this had happened until I read a comment on the last post CC had written. Went upstairs and turned on the TV.   Pretty much Deja Vu in how the news covered it. I first turned  to Fox, but as soon...

Down to the falls. Slow times on the mountain.
My wife and I went to the waterfall today.  I didn't want her to get worn out, so we drove the Jeep down there instead of walking. This is the first , or bottom fall. There are two higher ones in this location. There are two creeks you have to ford between ...

Time for a little test.
Most of this past week we had a slow, drizzling rain.  Today it's clear, but it's 52 degrees outside and the wind is blowing enough to move the tops of the poplars back and forth. Not a day to be poking around outside. Years ago, after having read this book...
