...a complicated woman with simple tastes

Amazing art

2014-03-27T12:29:45.724-04:00

It's become routine but I will never get over having lived to see pictures actually being sent to Earth from Mars. Just astounding.




Nice Ice

2014-03-04T12:09:19.382-05:00

Probably not the best picture to post when everyone is so sick of winter, but hey, sometimes the cold can be beautiful. Niagara Falls frozen again in the last polar vortex. Hoping this is the last gasp of this endless winter. [photo credit - more photos at link]

Places I have been

The Majestic Diner on Ponce de Leon in Atlanta is  famous for its cheese grits. It's a real classic in its genre. The first time I ever had grits was there. It was one of only two times that I really enjoyed eating grits in all the years I've now lived in the South.

Updating the bucket list

2014-02-24T15:13:39.969-05:00

Had no idea this place existed but definitely putting it near the top of the bucket list. I love beach glass. Glass Beach, Fort Bragg, California. [image via]

So sweet

2014-02-18T21:17:40.874-05:00

Possibly the most heartwarming ad for alcohol I've ever seen and I've watched every Budweiser ad ever aired. It even beats that Coke ad with the football guy.

Been crazy busy with real life so posting still is erratic. Thanks for sticking with me. Here, have an edible collage.

Places I've been

I was in Holland at the wrong time of year to see the tulips bloom. I would love to go back some day in the right season to see this. Keukenhof, The Netherlands. [photo via Earth Pictures]

New on the bucket list

2014-02-04T04:00:06.704-05:00

I've never heard of these guys before. Not sure where they live, but now on the bucket list to see one in real life. Purple crowned fairy wrens. [image via]

Them there eyes

2014-02-03T04:00:01.310-05:00

Love this idea. When I get that home of my own, I'm so going to do this with one of my trees. [photographer unknown]

Still on the bucket list

2014-02-02T07:00:01.059-05:00

So in my never ending quest to get a ride on the Goodyear blimp, I follow them on Facebook. This fan photo is one of the best ones ever posted. [photo via Goodyear blimp Facebook page]

Spring will be here before you know it

2014-02-01T21:13:46.485-05:00

sorry I haven't posted. Been busy with real life. Anyway, thinking with this endless winter, it's a good time to post something from the tropics. My friends are on an anniversary trip. From their gorgeous photo album. Yellow flowers in Puerto Rico. [Russell Alan Brooks photo]

Don't know much about history

2014-01-20T20:39:24.969-05:00

I always loved the airport in the town I grew up in but I had no idea that the did this. If I had been alive in 1929, I would have been saving my pennies for as long as it took to take this ride.

I've posted photos of this before. It's beautiful in every season. I should probably go see it in person some day. The Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon. [photo via]

Places I have been

2014-01-17T14:37:55.710-05:00

I'm still alive but I did have a bit of a relapse of the bronchitis and I've been busy with some real life stuff.  I'm trying to get back to a posting schedule. May be a few more days but for now, here's a couple of photos from the time I spent in Tulum.

The first night we arrived, we were too late to get a cabana. The only sleeping quarters we could get was this little pup tent.

(image)

Victoria and I could barely squeeze into it together. In the middle of the night I felt something warm and hairy. At first I thought it was Victoria's leg, but then realized it was breathing. It was an animal. I freaked out and sprang out of the tent screaming.  Moments later Victoria was laughing hysterically.

(image)

Turns out the animal was this little puppy. He tried to steal my wallet in the morning. His owners just watched and laughed as he ran off with it. Maybe that's how they made a living on the beach.  He made a hell of a cute thief.

A rhapsody in blue

2014-01-07T16:41:34.903-05:00

Since most of America is freezing, something to warm the soul. Blue butterflies in the Amazon. I've seen a few in the tropics but never a whole tree full of them. [photo via]

Things about me

2014-01-04T17:40:05.676-05:00

This is the oldest family photograph I own. I'm about three years old here. My mother made the skirt. It's possible she had one to match.

Cold humor

A warm little snow joke for a cold day.
