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

Stamen – Hibiscus plant in the back yard. I was chatting with Ginger when I noticed the contrast between the light on the stamen of this flower and the darkness of the greenery behind it.

Table Rock Lake at Piney Creek Wilderness – this is my little spot of Ozarks’ heaven. Piney Creek – Day One.

Having fun with my meeting backgrounds – I’ve not been counting how long we’ve been sequestering ourselves away from COVID-19, so I checked. Today is day 45. Three-minute read

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

That moment when … You go for a pee and after struggling for several moments you realize your boxers are on back to front.

Cat Briar Meadows – Cat briars are taking over this area, and climbing the trees as well. I suspect the only thing keeping the trail open here is the horses. 2 pictures

Blue Ball – Something different for a change … I was sitting at the kitchen table entranced by the play of light filtering through the trees and the kitchen window mesh screen. The shadows were forming wonderful dancing patterns on a blue (lacrosse) ball Ginger had left on the table. Video: 1 minute & 2 pictures
