Today it managed to get into the middle 60’s. It was a beautiful spring day. Some wind but I think it is the first day of spring!. Some snow remaining on the mountains. Time is just flying by; with spring comes flowers, green grass and allergies. WOW! I knew that it had been a few… Continue reading Today is Saturday March 20, 2021
I find myself up before 4 am today. Typical of my sleep habits of late; seldom do I get more than four hours of sleep. It has been a very lazy several days over the long Thanksgiving weekend. Outside it is cold and we even managed about one inch of snow. The state of New… Continue reading Today is Sunday November 29, 2020.
Another sunny but lazy Sunday afternoon from Los Alamos, New Mexico. I spend most of my Sunday’s resting on the sofa, reading or cleaning up around the house. If the kids are here I find myself trying to entertain them, help with their homework. Then there are two trips to the stables to feed Ruby.… Continue reading Today is Sunday November 15.

Sorry that I didn’t post something new. It’s not like I have been tied up or anything. I often have ideas on things… Continue reading Today is Sunday November 1, 2020.

Had this been a normal work day, I’d be up and showered, having my morning coffee, dog fed and planning our morning walk. But it is Sunday. Son is up and having breakfast. Daughter, who was still… Continue reading Sunday Morning: horses, birds, poetry and history
For the past few weeks, I have been troubleshooting a problem with my gas furnace. It was kicking on and off frequently. It was having difficulty reaching the thermostats set temperature. My three level house was cold on the inside. It was colder on the outside. My daughter’s horse Ruby had gotten clipped about two… Continue reading Without heat in the modern age
Today is Sunday August 4. Spent the better part of the past 3 days contemplate my future. In the background is the Fox News broadcast “Life, Liberty & Levin”. I seldom watch the news on TV, but there wasn’t anything else worth watching. The platform is a question and answer session, which is better than… Continue reading Sunday ramblings
The first full day in Flagstaff. We dropped daughter and mother off where the horse has been put up for the weekend. Son and I then embarked on a 90 minute detour north to check out one of the seven wonders of the natural world. The Grand Canyon. When son walked up to the edge,… Continue reading RoadTrip…day 2
Instead of spending the 4th of July at a picnic, watching a parade, or going out to hear music and watch fireworks, I spent the day in the car. As a family, we drove to Flagstaff Arizona for a weekend horse competition for Daughter. My 4th of July hotdog was from a truck stop on… Continue reading Road Trip
