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

Monday Musings

As the cold mornings gave way to warm afternoons, the windows could remain down during the wait at Starbucks as nature slowly began to unthaw from the long winter, but only along the shore as many are chafing at the bit to be out on the lake in the kayak. If you’re curious about some…

The Week in Seven Photos

There were signs of spring everywhere this week and, as more birds flew in, the air was filled with squawks, honks and songs from all the new arrivals, but unfortunately the only sign of flowers remain indoors. As the news concerning the coronavirus worsened throughout the week, there was the question regarding other than places…

Monday Musings

Another weekend and another midlife realization that the person that spent years flying down the highway in the fast lane is in the rearview mirror and I prefer those slow Sunday morning drives and avoiding highways whenever possible.  No more U-turns to miss waiting for the train, but now hoping it’s a long one with…

Monday Musings

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…

Harper was so excited to hear about the return of Bryce Harper this weekend with the beginning of baseball spring training that both ears went straight up in the air,  but then again they could have been from standing too long in the bitter cold wind admiring the ice. We won’t have to be envious of…

So, this week should only be about celebrating that Harper is one year old, but I discovered my first gray hair this week and while initial thought was it’s because I’m old, I would rather blame surviving a year with a puppy at this age. I tried the Harper excuse for old age on my…

Tuesday Tunes – Brown Eyed Girl

Sometimes after a refreshing Pear, Apple and Cinnamon Margarita and delicious Cubano Nachos, with Jimmy Buffett lyrics swirling around in my head, I can close my brown eyes while daydreaming by swirling warm snow and almost imagine that I’m standing in the sand on a tropical beach. Unfortunately, I’m quickly brought back to my winter…

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…

The Week In Seven Photos

One never knows what thoughts you may reflect on during a photography outing, so on a cold winter morning after watching episodes the previous evening of my favorite tv shows this year, Prodigal Son and Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, I was surprised when thoughts turned to career choices.  For years while I sat…

Monday Musings

During the first winter weekend without any football games and more rain, since it appears January has become the new rainy season in Michigan, it was time to finally go outdoors and join the animals as everyone’s favorable opinion of winter is skating on thin ice. Thankfully the squirrels and turkeys have provided plenty of…
