    A bit of chill in the morning air

  • a little bit of color

    pardon the image quality, it's a snapshot made with a mobile phone camera If this week was a piece of clothing, it would be a flannel shirt that's too short in the arms with a few stray threads peeking out here and there. Easy enough to roll up the sleeves and not look a fool, […]

  • Our first fire

    Please don’t bring attention to the faux brass insert It’s supposed to get chilly tonight and we’re not turning on the furnace. Been toting around a bundle of wood through two moves, finally it gets used. So nice. In other goings on, we’re watching BBC World News instead of the usual suspects this evening. It’s […]

  • Travel trailer

    On the way to work Hello Friday, I’m glad you’re here. I didn’t get everything on my checklist done this week. I’m okay with that. This weekend?

If PBK had it available online, I’d totally add one of those hyperlinks. In other news, Tuesdays are printing […]

  • Getting to know Dayton, plus a dreamy desk

    architectural detail in the Oregon District Dinner with a couple o’ fine fellas here in town—one of which my partner has known since college. After some good vittles we toured neighborhoods of downtown Dayton, learning about the history, people and buildings. I took notes and made a checklist of places I need to visit: – […]

  • Lake Festival Parade

    Celina, OH [ this image looks better +bigger ] Not one to squander perfect summer weather and picture taking potential, I went with Dan yesterday to see the Lake Festival Parade up north. A couple of his sisters and their families live up that way, so we were guaranteed good company. Arrived just in time, […]
