Autumn Reflections

Autumn is my favorite season.  Hot weather doesn't agree with my body very much, and I always welcome the onset of autumn.  The kids are back in school, the air is cool, and the sun still makes its appearance on most days.  Here are some reflections of autumn that I have captured, mostly around home …

New Link in my Sidebar-LifeSiteNews

Here's a link to a post by a friend of mine, over at Ratburger.org.  I was impressed enough by his post that I have added a link to LifeSiteNews on my sidebar, so Pro-Life RushBabe49 followers can go directly there.

Last Half of the Journey-Hawaii Cruise Travelog-Leaving Hawaii for Mexico…And Home

Wednesday, July 25 through Monday, July 30, we were again at sea, and you know what that means...  Lectures!  The weather wasn't conducive to much deck-walking, but I did get a few ocean and cloud pictures.  This was the last picture of Hawaiian waters. July 25 speakers were Roger Kimball on "Trump vs The Elites"; …
