Night, night, Tubby – Today we helped Tubby cross over the ‘Rainbow Bridge.’ It’s amazing how these little furry people manage to worm their way into our hearts.

On the road again – Today we had an Area Confirmation service at St. Andrew’s in Kansas City, which meant I spent over five hours in a rental car. 3 pictures

Ginger recently undertook a project to make a vessel a day for 100 days. Most days a new vessel of some sort would appear on my desk. The vases came with flowers, and the pots came with small plants. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Coffee Hour (or should that be ‘Tea break’) – I took this photo of my desk with my phone this morning. I didn’t realize at the time how much history and how many special things there could be in a simple picture. One-minute read

Starting out on the Bell Mountain Trail – This wasn’t my first hike of the Bell Mountain Trail. We backpacked here during Spring Break 2012, again staying two nights. Then we’d gone around the loop counter-clockwise. This time I’d be going the opposite way around. 3 pictures
