My favorite pictures and posts. The pictures, people and events that are special to me.

Writing Desk at Storybook Barn

I like this crop so much I wish I’d taken this as a separate picture. However, the wider shots I took came out pretty good too. [Three pictures]

Chandelier Through the Window

I recently visited a friend who is converting a barn on their property into a wedding and event venue. While I was there I took a few pictures. This is probably an unrepeatable picture, as very shortly the clear pane… Continue Reading →

Lanie in the 1930s Dodge “Humpback” Panel Van at Busiek

Lanie joined me for a short hike on the Yellow Trail at Busiek. We went off-trail a bit so she could see the old panel van. In total we hiked four miles, nothing strenuous. But it was a warm 82°F.

Sweet Dreams Getzger

Later in the day on Sunday Getzger became very quiet. Monday he went on one of his favorite car rides, to visit the vet. The news wasn’t good. Acute renal failure, Getzger was now on ‘final approach’. We brought him… Continue Reading →
