Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

hummingbirds are very distracting, I tell you what. Take, for instance, yesterday evening. I wanted to work on a few things but I kept hearing them . . . humming. . . . so I went out with my phone . . . I’m about two feet away. … Continue reading
On a recent update, Samsung added the capability for Super-slow Motion to the Note 8. Mind you, it’s very limited. By limited, I mean that you can only shoot a few seconds of video and end up with about 6 … Continue reading
When we moved here, I was a bit concerned (but hopeful) about whether I’d be able to attract and see hummingbirds. This next video is of poor quality because it was shot out my office window . . . through … Continue reading
So, I’ve been trying out the D7500’s video capabilities using the 70-300mm kit lens. Not too bad, I would venture to say. First, a random photo from a previous post . . .
Because our typical daily driving distance is between four and eight miles with speeds seldom exceeding 35mph, once a week we go for a long drive . . . for the sake of the car; a long drive at higher … Continue reading
Note: this is a long post. If you just want the photos, go to the bottom and check out the gallery sans the witty, incisive, profound, and irreverent banter. This is the continuation of the posts documenting our September 11, … Continue reading
Note: this is a long post. If you just want the photos, go to the bottom and check out the gallery sans the witty, incisive, profound, and irreverent banter. I have been remiss in documenting the September 2017 Alaska Cruise … Continue reading
So, here we are at Part 2 and we’re facing another dilemma. Should I plan on Part 3 or try and squeeze in 85 more photos and 7 more videos all in this post? Well, since I won’t post all … Continue reading
I have been remiss in documenting the September 2017 Alaska Cruise aboard the Coral Princess. There are many reasons for this egregious lapse in my blogging duties. Not that I’ll share them here, but know there are bigly reasons, all … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I got back from the September Alaska cruise — 4,441,924 seconds, give or take the few it takes WordPress to put this up once I hit “publish” — and it’s time I continue with the documentation … Continue reading
A blog I follow (OneOwner) had a photo of a spinner that looked neat (click on the link to see it). Well, of, course, I had to get one . . . or more. Warning: this post will be boring for … Continue reading
When we lived in Michigan, our favorite hamburger was the Big C. You can read a bit about Clyde’s and the three-quarters-pounder burger HERE and HERE. The Big C was a five hours drive from where we lived, but it … Continue reading
On November 9, 2016, we had a sudden urge to skip our 4.5 miles morning walk, skip our daily 1.5 hours visit to Pacific Island Fitness, and, instead, drive clear across the Big Island. The previous evening, we had stopped … Continue reading
Most people who look at my hummingbirds photos might get the idea I am literally swimming in them . . . and they would be right. I currently refill some of the feeders twice a day. This morning I went … Continue reading
