Lemonade for Eliza
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Two girls in my neighborhood read about Eliza O’Neill, a little girl suffering from a big disease. They decided to go proactive and sell lemonade to raise funds for Eliza. They enlisted their friends. They made flyers and walked up and down the block with their mother to distribute them.  Today, Sunday, I can hear […]

Falling in Love Again

Falling in Love Again

Long-time readers will remember Boz, the internationally famous, boxer/pit bull mix who stole my heart and — wait. That’s a cliché. He never stole a thing, not even treats.

Just Plain Strange

Just Plain Strange

We got away for a couple of days. We needed it. Well–I needed it, and John was nice enough to come with me. He took this picture of me at the San Buenaventura Mission in Ventura, CA. The Mission is a lovely place with a strange and sad history. Then again, much of history is […]

Simple Needs

Simple Needs

We had some rain last night. Not a lot, but it was nice to listen to for a while before I fell back to sleep. This sounds like what I heard. Thanks to Paula Johnson for that, via Monica Hubbard. Lots of water flowing out at Hahamongna today. A lake and a river. Wind, sun, […]
