Foggy cove

Our cove on a recent foggy morning….


It’s coming….


Sorry… I’m not a fan of “Fall” or Autumn if you want to be proper.

It’s the time of year that the days get shorter, the air gets colder, plants die.

Trips to the lake or beach fade away. You start wearing sweaters, jackets and coats.

Everything is “Pumpkin Spice” flavor or scented.

And you know it’s coming…. Winter.

I really don’t like Winter, I’m a warm weather guy who really likes Spring time but loves Summertime.  I love hot weather.  Yeah, yeah, down here in the South it’s humid and it can get really hot and you sweat just walking outside but that’s ok with me.

Winter? Not so ok.

Down low

Leaf 1.jpgLeaf 2.jpgLeaf 3.jpgI work in what has to be the most sound polluted neighborhood in… I don’t know but if you walk outside one of the 10 different lawn maintenance crews are going to either blow you away with leaf blowers, run you over with lawn mowers or just stampede you try to put out flowers or trim bushes.  I get it… it’s their job and they got work to do but jeezz…  ANYWAY I went outside during lunch and was walking around moments before a leaf blower started up on the other side of the building. In just a few minutes these little treasures would be vanquished from existence. Sometimes you need to slow down and look around…you never know what you’re missing.


Old ladder.jpg

This short ladder was built for my son when he was 8 or 9 so he could climb up on top of a skate ramp we had made out in the back yard. The ramp disappeared after a few years but the ladder hung on. Too short and small for anything other than a small kid it just became a decoration out in the yard, a doorway to old memories.
