Autumn in Ohio

Date October 19, 2011

Last Saturday turned out to be a gorgeous fall day. Benton and a few of his friends coordinated one of their get-togethers on a nearby field for a pick-up soccer game. I decided I sneak over and try to get some pictures of the action. When I arrived…they had decided to hang out on the [...]

Summer Trip 2011 — Part 1 of ? — Angliers, Quebec

Date July 17, 2011

This year, we started off with a 14-hour drive to Angliers, Quebec, Canada, where Julie’s aunt and uncle have had a cabin on Lac des Quinze [...]

2.5 Years…but It’s DONE!

Date June 8, 2011

Back in the fall of 2008, I tackled a pretty ambitious project to add built-in shelves with a window seat to our office. The woodworking and painting was finished within a month, but the accompanying accessories have dragged out for a while — the need to find the right fabric and find the time to [...]

Visiting the Farm: Part 7 (Final) — The Dogs

Date September 19, 2010

Molly’s actually slowing down to the point that she stays close to the farmhouse — peps up long enough to go find a smelly mess to roll in somewhere, and then she’s pretty much done for. Holly and Sophie, though, are still spry enough to roam around. Holly Sophie

Visiting the Farm: Part 5 — Flora and Fauna

There were several species of butterflies flitting around during our visit to West Virginia. Maybe, some day, I’ll actually learn the species! Carson actually found this fella’ on an apple tree near The High Point: Some Flowers

Love those (Love) Reunions

Date June 16, 2010

It was, ostensibly, timed around the 90th birthdays of my great-uncle, Bill Love, and great-aunt, Jane (Eades) Love. All of my [...]
