The Week In Seven Photos

After three years of “The Week In Seven Photos” series, maybe it’s time to switch things up and create a weekly “Welcome To My Rant” series.  It was nice this week to not be the only one floating in the middle of the lake ranting about the state of the world or how crowded the…

Monday Musings

I think I’ve given myself mental whiplash with all the changes I’m witnessing taking place in society every day and the fast moving news on the latest coronavirus updates and knowledge about the virus.  There was the welcoming change this week of seeing a new little sandhill crane colt enjoying wandering through the garden  amidst…

Local Watering Hole

Self-Isolation Trend #8 With the bars and restaurants closed during the shutdown, a new trend for many is being forced to enjoy happy hour, or for some of us the celebration of It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, at home.  Alcohol sales at grocery stores are up compared to last year as people are either stocking up on booze…

Self-Isolation Trend #7 The no sports trend has been going on for months and I’ve had a few different reactions throughout this trend.  First phase was during the initial shock where it was still too painful to watch ESPN, check my sports notifications or watch any replays.  Second phase included still not watching ESPN, glancing…
