The right tool for funnel clouds.

A quick ride this afternoon where I caught the old part of the county at work. Just a series of the harvest. This guy was going away from me over the hill at first, but I heard the roar again coming my way after the first two shots.

Something is eating the fields of corn.

Walk softly but carve a big path.

In a cloud of dust, he’s safe at home.

And then an image appeared on the horizon again.

I need a mower with this cut radius.

Nice clippers.

Almost missed a few.

There’s gold in them their hills.

Let it flow.

Wishing I had all day to go out and catch the county living, working, playing.

Almost done.

My children called last night. They are grown and on their own and have been some time now. That is why its special when I hear their voices being they are no longer under this roof. It’s not like we don’t talk often but I also respect they are adults and give them space. They are both married and now have a family of their own. But boy does that fill my heart with joy when we do talk.


I was disheartened again last night with the news of that shooting in South Carolina. We should all be shocked each day with all the people dying of gun violence. Whatever we are doing or aren’t doing, isn’t working.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I have great goals each day. And then the job that pays the bills happens and the energy left is fleeting.

For some reason I’m full of creative ideas tonight.

Pinched nerves are interesting. Some days pain, some days numbness, sometimes both.

I love baseball season when the Yankees are in the playoffs.

I’m not into either team playing tonight.  The Fake Colts and the GOP of the NFL Pats.

If I can take 50 to 100 frames a day I’ll be a happy camper. If I get more it’s like rain from heaven. If I get a few that please me and others I’ll allow myself amateur photographer in the title.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
