Easter, 2020

Easter Church Service The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc around the world and the Easter holiday was no exception. Our local church in Nebraska has been closed for almost a month, providing services on-line. They even tried drive-by communion one Sunday, but have since resorted to "self-serve" communion at home during the streamed services. We … Continue reading Easter, 2020

Sarasota Sunset

Sarasota Bay From Bay Front Park in Sarasota, there is a beautiful view of the John Ringling (think circus) Causeway over the Sarasota Bay and the Grande Riviera luxury condos. Shortly after dusk the lights come on, making the view even more spectacular. I thought the vibrant color in the quilted sky added interest to … Continue reading Sarasota Sunset

Propeller

WW II Bomber This photo was taken at the SAC Air & Space Museum near Ashland, NE. I jazzed it up a bit, as the plane sits inside a huge hangar with busy backgrounds and low lighting. What caught my eye was the red warning sign, "Propeller". My first thought was "Duh", then I thought … Continue reading Propeller

Hippos lay around in the water all day to … Continue reading Yawning Hippo

This is his official one-year portrait. Thought for the Day:  There was never a … Continue reading #1

Leaf Connoisseur

Raking leavings?  Uggh, one of the worst jobs Ev Ver.  I love trees, but every fall I come to hate them, despise them and wish I had never planted them.  I love the shade they provide in the summer, but why can't they pick up after themselves in the fall?  Why do I have to … Continue reading Leaf Connoisseur

Butterball

This picture was taken 62 years ago today.  Yeh, its me, you do the math.  Quite a little butterball back then, "chubby" as my Mom likes to say.  I must have put the candles on the cake myself.  Looks like I had a stylish amount of axle grease on my hair ( "Brylcreme -- a … Continue reading Butterball
