No, you don't dip the hens in the paint. What kind of person thinks of something like that? If you decide you want to paint outdoors at the farm, you had better be prepared for some company. In this case chickens. The rooster was nearby, but apparently he is not... Continue reading

Tuesday afternoon, Belle gave birth to a fine healthy colt. When I first saw him stand, I was struck by how tall he was and the length of his gangly legs. Like his mother, he is black with the exceptions of one white rear hoof and the white blaze on... Continue reading

Conversely, we all sometimes feel like giants. What caught my fancy in this photo was that one of the ladies had removed her shoes so that she could feel more comfortable. The Indianapolis Museum of Art is very large, and I would have taken my shoes off for a rest... Continue reading

Saturday, my friend Jim and I visited the Indianapolis Museum of Art to see an exhibit of concept cars from the 1930s on up. While there, we wandered through many of the galleries, including this gallery that contained a wonderful sound installation. Each of the speakers hanging from the ceiling... Continue reading

Two months ago, I was visiting the Dayton Art Institute where I was walking through an American impressionist exhibit. Following the excellent impressionist exhibit, I stumbled upon an exhibit by Julie Green entitled The Last Supper. What immediately caught my eyes was the massive number of hand painted plates covering... Continue reading

Why is it that, even the forrest seems to have a political agenda? Enough already. The election isn't until next fall and I've had enough of politics. Have a great day. Continue reading

Saturday felt like Summer and it is only mid spring. Ohio is like that. It is always hard to predict the weather in the spring. Could be chilly and wet. Could be hot and humid. Saturday was hot and breezy. Perfect weather for drying on the line. Clothes lines are... Continue reading

I often get asked the question; how do I take a great selfie? Not a selfie taker, I had to consult with two wonderful ladies from the farm. Their advice can be summed up in the three simple steps that follow. Step One: Make a funny face. Step Two: Snap... Continue reading

Let me tell you a few things about Roberta Wilkins. Because, today we spread her ashes along with her husband (Hal), and their dog, Yemmy. This is a good time to share some of my favorite memories. First of all, she was my mother-in-law. Unlike most son-in-laws, I adored her... Continue reading

Aren't they gorgeous?
Wendy is really good at catching them. I have to settle for taking a wider view of them. I am looking forward to meeting you and your husband in June!

Each year, I spray, mow down, and dig up dandelions in a never ending attempt to eradicate them from our yard. I do this primarily for the sake of our neighbors. I know they don't appreciate when the seeds fly into their yard and take hold in their new home.... Continue reading

Ace reporter, Libby Crenshaw knew a good story when she saw one. She spied Jimmy in the paddock and knew by the way he just stood there every time she looked in his direction that something big was going on. Why would a horse try so hard not to be... Continue reading

My name is Hec Thompson and I am from this side. For my entire life, I have been taught by my father to dislike, distrust, and generally think ill of my neighbors, the Nanleys. Dad always said that Nanleys were loathsome low down cusses. You needed to keep a close... Continue reading

Tank you Rob. It was taken at Lake Lanier, near my parent's home in Georgia.

I dreamed that I sailed across a golden sea until I found an island floating in the morning light. The island drifted on the wind, following the sun as it slowly journeyed westward. The island’s shadow reflection shimmered on the small ripples that trailed in the island’s wake. The entire... Continue reading
