I have gadget that shows quite a few persons pass through without a word. One particular day I counted 50 and I only had 10 comments. I enjoy comments because I feel we know a wee bit about each other's niche in the world. Some days I comment too much; others days it is short and sweet.
Spring and Summer lure us outside to see, marvel, wonder and enjoy the beauty of awakening of life as well as maturing into Summer. For those able to garden, participate on water sports, or just walk, I say all fully justifies less blogging, etc.
|May-Pole Flowers - Not Really!|
This has been slightly Photoshop
and cropped ox-eyed daisies.
I am partial to the SOOC.
Currently I am trying to write once or twice a week, and read my complete bloglist through at least once a week and I DO comment unless the material is overtly biased in religious or political matters. Even if I agree, I do not comment. I feel I know you but not well enough to engage in this kind of banter. I may mention religion or politics in passing but usually in a generic way, not trying to persuade anyone of my viewpoints.
|Cell Tower - our church leased|
small amount of land to a cell
company who built a road through
our parking lot. I watched road
construction for 2 weeks.
Thursday when I arrived for my
4 hours work the tower was up
but not complete. See top of
tower in next photo.
Liz Hinds was writing an e-book when I first added her to my bloglist. Recently she completed the e-book, THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, which I purchased for my Kindle Touch. I am not sure but I think it is her first book.
USA persons may purchase THIS TIME NEXT YEAR by Liz Hinds here for $4.74. United Kingdom persons may purchase the e-book here for £3.o8 or go to her abovementioned blog where there is also a link. The links here are amazon.com. Persons in other countries contact Liz Hinds for any other distribution channels.
I have not read Liz's book but have purchased it. USA amazon.com have two 5-star comments and apparently the humor is great. I am engrossed in reading James A Michenor's THE SOURCE, which is an epic novel and may take me the rest of the year to read, as I just started it. He is a favorite author of mine.

along the sides are for human climbing
I will not watch - unless I have my
trusty camera. The transmitting/re-
ceiving equipment on top is yet to
be installed. I work 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Lastly, the this post, Husband (H) and I are planning a trip to Plattsburg, NY, known for one of the more important battles of the War of 1812. It is also home of a museum from one of the Navy ships H was on in mid 1960s, U.S.S. Henley. Their convention is the last weekend of the 2week Commemoration of theWar of 1812. I promised Shelly one ship reunion, and time may be running out.
We also will return via Niagara Falls. I have seen them, but he has not. I told him it was on his Bucket list now. All my slides are gone, so I want one more chance a photos, too. And it is one of the marvelous wonders of our beautiful country. That leaves one thing on my Bucket List- Grand Canyon. Have no idea how we might accomplish that one.
The possibility of pulling this trip off is nebulous. We have relatives everywhere in poor health: a brother on radiation due to reoccurrence of cancer; half-brother with unbelievable heart problems, brother-in-law with multiple heart problems and possible decline in mental acuity; sister just diagnosed diabetic; and my heart medicine for A-Fib is definitely fading, which means a heart procedure which may prohibit my attendance (however, I am working getting a fishing pal to maybe go in my place, and I'll find someone to stay with me).
At least our deposits and reservations are refundable except $20; we have 70x that already in deposits/reservations. That does not count gas and nights on the road going and coming back.
PHOTOS: scattered through this blog have no relation to subject matter, so I have added longer cutlines. All photos by NitWit1 unless otherwise attributed.
