There’s a thing or two I’ve always found a bit fishy with that tale. I’m pretty sure the Grimms were biased… could Hansel and Gretel still been angelic little darlings if they had run off on their own? But I think it’s fairly likely. What would you do if you were eight years old andContinue reading “Hansel & Gretel”
Just don’t do it.
It would seem this would be a cause for joy, after all – the birds are free. Or, if those birds are long dead, there are no replacements held in captivity. And yet, this intricate cage, at the side of the road, forgotten… makes me wonder if the captor has flown as well. She willContinue reading “Birds have flown”
Yes, I have cruising on the brain again… the cheap details are coming out for early next year. Spotted one tonight on Holland America from Hong to Beijing, then Shanghai then Incheon and Jeju (the last two being in South Korea.) 14 nights… less than $100 per night per person… of course there will beContinue reading “A perfect day to sail”

Zombies, mummies, werewolves, and of course both Dracula and Frankenstein. The first time I ever heard the word pronounced was in an old movieContinue reading “The Gazebo”
. I hope your Thanksgiving day was warm and wonderful wherever it was spent… We do it the Saturday following so people don’t have to work, especially the cooks. Daughter and I have come up with a vast array of delectable goodies for tomorrow, like we do every year… Too busy to make pictures…
I had an hour to kill before a holiday dinner tonight, so I brought my camera along and wandered through a nearby park. This female spotted robin really made my day – hopped up so close to me. They make a couple of hops and then pause and listen for worms – perfect pauses toContinue reading “Spotted Robin”
Isn’t it ironic? Is it? Maybe no. Maybe not at all. Is Orwell even read any more or is he fading into the dimming past? He seems more relevant today than ever before in my lifetime. Though he became so politically incorrect, excoriated by both the left and the right, I enjoyed almost everything heContinue reading “Big Buddha”
Not sure why, but this angel is one of my favourite captures… there seems to be so much going on…
