Tuesday Musings

Staying home this much has made me realize why my dog gets so excited about backyard visitors or going for walks, I think I just barked at a squirrel.

Hand over the remote and biscuits and no one gets hurt!

No Sports Saturday

I’m very aware of the seriousness of events occurring right now, but please allow me to rant for a few seconds about the first Saturday in my lifetime without sports and an extended stoppage of play of all sports.  No March Madness in March, no March Madness brackets (and losing to my brother for another…

During our first springlike weather of the year, the birds were out enjoying the blue skies, the ducks were basking in the sunshine, the turkeys were showing off their spring strut, and the snow and ice were melting on more lakes while I was stuck indoors with a cold binge-watching Better Call Saul before the new season…

Monday Musings

After complaining all winter about our gray skies, we finally woke to a beautiful sky that lasted throughout the day which I was beginning to think was impossible. Harper was not impressed and did not want to leave her bed since the blue sky arrived with our coldest temperatures of the year and she was…

Years ago, if someone had asked me if I wanted to run a winter turkey farm my reaction would have been similar to being asked if I wanted to watch professional wrestling (no, not really my thing).  Circumstances can change and when I watched Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the first time, I instantly became a…

We enjoyed a little bit of everything this weekend, beginning with sunshine and blue skies, bonding with the turkeys in the snow, extra snacks for everyone during the Super Bowl and a very bored Harper happy to hear that the football season is finally over. If you’re curious about some of my other photos or…

Life is Good during the NFL Championship football weekend with snow finally on the branches and Harper greeting the backyard tailgaters as they flew in all day enjoying plenty of snacks and, of course, a little football trash-talk. If you’re curious about some of my other photos, please visit my photography site Curious Wandering.

Weekend Football

I’m trying to have hope that a week will make a difference to the chances of at least one of my football teams winning this weekend (San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens) since our weather has been showing me what a difference a day makes all week changing from clouds,…

I’m not one to really believe things are abruptly going to change since we’re in a new year, but I have to admit on my new optimistic path that I was a little disappointed with the first weekend of this new decade.  The weather was a very dismal gray, the world news is even more…

The Week In Seven Photos

Happy to report that 2020 began on a beautiful note and thankfully isn’t flying by too fast at this point, since at this age one really doesn’t want the days to pass in a blur. The year is in its very early stages of trying to walk a fine path of optimism and because I…

Monday Musings

How many times have you started a new year planning on staying in your peaceful lane and then the world immediately squares off against you with its attitude? Before you know it, you feel like you’re banging your head against a brick wall and then strangers are cursing at you because you’re trying to float…
