Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #201: Three of a Kind

In our yard, we have some Japanese Maple trees.  The one that came first, when I bought my house in June of 2000, started out small.  When we got married and my husband moved in with me in 2003, he dubbed it "Fluffy".  Here is Fluffy in three seasons. In Spring and Summer, its leaves …

CBWC: Two of anything

Two bad it couldn't be Tuesday.  Friday will have to do. First of all, two mushrooms in the back yard. Next, inside.  Two special teacups.  We had our wedding dinner at Izumi Japanese Restaurant, and the owners gave us these teacups, which we cherish.  The letters in the open space center say the name of …

Why do so many in government and media ignore what’s staring them in the face regarding Covid vaccines?

It seems that the Dictator of Washington State, and his Lieutenant Dictator have both tested positive for Covid-19.  Both people have been fully-vaccinated and had their booster shots, just like their Overlords in the CDC recommended.  Here is what he said: “I am experiencing very mild symptoms and am most glad I’m vaccinated and boosted,” …

CMMC: Midweek Madness. Letter “H”

In my life, the most important thing that starts with the letter "H" is Hillsdale.  Ever since we found out about the College in Michigan, which teaches Classical values, Western Civilization, and the Liberal Arts, my husband and I have been big supporters of the small school which accepts NOT ONE PENNY of government money, …

CFFC: Going around in circles, and leaning into the curves

My head is already spinning at this week's Fun Foto Challenge topic.  Like this: Rides after dark and at twilight on the Santa Monica Pier. And this: Ferris wheel at the Washington State Fair.  All the other rides go around in circles, too, don't they? Barrels of whisky at the Jack Daniels Distillery in Tennessee. …

Mind (and character) in the gutter? You be the judge.

This is a photo of the bumper of the car in front of me in the Starbucks drive-through this afternoon.  It's quite a collection of Leftist and druggie sentiment.  This is the first time I have ever seen someone admit to being a drug-user.  I wonder what kind of people she associates with?  Probably not …

Sunday Stills: Takin’ it Easy with my #Feathered Friends

I will freely admit that our yard isn't quite as enticing (or as large) as Terri's is for birds, due to our many squirrels.  We have one seed-feeder that's squirrel-proof, and two suet feeders.  One suet feeder that would be easy for squirrels to get at, is always filled with hot-pepper suet, which the birds …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #200: It’s the Little Things

I do like to keep my eyes open and search for little things around me that delight the eye.  How about the humble, useful paper clip?  Who gives them more than a moment's consideration, mainly when you run out?  I did, last week at work.  I had lined up some paper clips on my desk, …
