Some Halloweenie animal photos from my trip to the Bay Area to visit my mom…

Black cat, evil stare, what else is there to say? A lone crow in a dead tree making his mournful caw. I like crows. They have attitude. They are beautiful birds. Don’t confuse them with ravens. They hate that. Thus … Continue reading

I even managed to get some good pictures of a bumblebee!

Some perks of driving 500 miles in a motor home to visit my 97-year-old mother at the house in the Bay Area where I grew up, in a socially-distant, responsible manner… I mean the visit, not me when I was growing up, I was perhaps socially-distant, but no way was I ever responsible…

So I borrowed my mother-in-law’s motor home to visit my mom. Is that weird? Also, is it weird that for a 60-year-old guy my legs are still so sexy? First perk; Dew-speckled roses in the morning. Sorry, I know you … Continue reading

Where’s my ball??? I got my ball. Where’s my ball??? I have a ball. Me too, and mine is newer. Can we keep it? I need a friend. Let’s dance! You smell like you would be a good friend. Oh, … Continue reading

The garden where I played as a child…

That was a really long drive in a motor home just to see some birds and flowers…
