When Kevin and I were out gallivanting yesterday, we ate lunch at a Subway in Gallipolis. Right outside the window was a large two-billboard-wide steel structure being refurbished by four busy workmen. You can see two of them above -... Continue reading

The big excitement on the farm today was that two of Farmer Frank's young heifers got out of their field and across the street onto our front yard. I think the grass really was greener on the other side of... Continue reading

I slept very late this morning - I guess I was especially tired - so I did not get to the hospital to visit my brother Jeff until almost 3 p.m. The day was lovely - high 80's and light... Continue reading

We have a smart and resourceful bird living in our yard ... and he's teaching others. This photo (a bit enlarged) shows a perky cardinal who shows up at least once every afternoon on our front porch at the farm.... Continue reading

I woke up pretty early (for me) this morning and made it to my brother's hospital by 11:35 a.m. He looked better today to some degree. Was a bit more cheerful, too. Maybe there is hope, yet. :) While he... Continue reading

This was the sky at sunset tonight, behind the old barn. I thought the colors were lovely. The lightning bugs (fireflies:) were rising as this was taken but I doubt I caught any of them in my picture. Talk about... Continue reading

This has been an interesting few days (in the same sense as the old Chinese proverb about living in 'interesting' times). I am alternating visiting my brother Jeff one day and taking care of errands and spending time with our... Continue reading

I took this photo on Wednesday afternoon as I was walking back to my brother's room in the hospital from eating lunch in the cafeteria. The day was quite hot early but sometime while I was eating there came an... Continue reading

As little mister O's expression implies, the past three days have been full of woe .... entirely mechanical ones (if you don't count the rain-on-a-holiday thing, which I don't:). Sunday I took my brother Kevin to Athens (about 45 minutes... Continue reading

As far as I can tell, there is only one rabbit that lives here in our farmyard (or maybe there is only one _brave_ rabbit?:) Here he/she is, come out to silflay* yesterday evening. He/she sat for about an hour... Continue reading

I typed out a post about two days ago but it appears that Typepad 'ate' it (well ... honesty compels me to admit that I probably did something stupid to lose it ... 'user error' is all too probable:). I... Continue reading

Yesterday when I arrived at the Fairfield Medical Center (hospital) where my brother is, I had to park in the emergency department lot as the surgical lot was full. Just as I stepped out of my car, I heard an... Continue reading

This is how I felt today. :) Here is Blackie (our barn cat) sleeping in the sunshine. Right after I took this photo, she stood up, yawned, took two steps toward me (into the shade) and laid back down on... Continue reading

Thanks for the kind wishes. The biggest problem I have with using my camera is that I am driving the car by myself. Along a very country lane - two lanes (one each way) with no shoulder. The verges are very narrow and typically have a ditch for drainage that I do not want to drive my car into. :) I have been considering stopping to take photos when I don't see anyone coming behind me ... but it would be a bit perilous as I'd have to stop in the middle of the road. :) Linda Linda Schiffer Columbia, MD

I have become very interested in the edge of the roads I go past. I noticed the other day that directly beneath the golden grassy seed heads on the grasses growing on the road verges there is an almost lime... Continue reading

I, too, was pleased to see the young woman and that piece of what I would call artwork fiber. :) Linda
