These photos are all of the same creek on my friend’s farm. The old tire is half submerged in the muddy bank of the creek.

The Same Creek last summer
This photo is from late last summer when the creek had a little mud but was mostly dry. Is it really a creek?

This photo is from our weekend trip to visit our friend, taken on Saturday March 23rd, 2013.Wow!! It was hard to believe this is the same creek we saw last summer. We even heard the sound of the rushing water when we were still a few hundred feet away!

My cats are eating WHAT?

Ranting About Rectangles

My cats are crazy! I feed them well. They have a great quality food. And what do I catch them doing?

cats eating peas

They jump up on the stove and eat the bowl of peas I had left there. Peas. PEAS! Aren’t cats supposed to be carnivores? Don’t they like meat? Not mine! Apparantly I have my whole family so well trained that even the cats eat their vegetables! They were there calmly taking turns, even licking the bottom when they were finished.

But they’re not perfectly trained. No cat can ever be. When I left the kitchen to upload the cute photo, they knocked the glass bowl off the stove and onto the stone floor. No more bowl. Silly me, I should have known better! But it’s still a cute photo. I’ve never gotten a snap of my cats eating vegetables before.

When I was a kid I remember there were places I was told not to go either by a neighbor, a babysitter, or my mom. These wonderfully off-limit places included behind the barn, the upper loft in the barn, the attic, and the basement.

The attic. I think the attic in the farm house I grew up in was always a little scary and mysterious. There was a long, creaking stairway leading up into a dark void. Continue reading Treasures in the Attic… A Treasure Hunter’s Dream

The Oregon Coast Near Florence

Went to the Oregon Coast on Saturday. Our goal was to see the sunset and get amazing photos of pink, orange, purple and red on the ocean… the forecast the day before said clear skies on the website we checked…

When we first arrived, the sun was out and the clouds were fluffy white in the blue sky.

So we did not get to see the sunset… but we still got some good photos.

Who Needs Kim Kardashian?

Yes, I was running outside in my underwear. They were boxers and I’m sure the neighbors could not tell. It was an emergency. Wait, perhaps I should back up and start from the beginning.

So, as I was getting ready for bed when I heard an odd sound from the backyard. What is that? It was just before midnight January 8th. I paused for a moment. And then the sound came again. An animal shrieked!

That’s when I said to my wife, “There’s something wrong in the backyard! The animals are screaming.”
