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.

Honest, given all that’s happening, it feels weird asking people to read and vote for one of the “Alphabet Challenge I-Stories” HERE. That post has links to the individual stories and the poll where readers can click a box to … Continue reading
I know, I know . . . the less-than-twenty-out-of-sixteen-hundred-plus-subscribers who were going to vote already did so. But, just in case a few more readers stagger in here . . . . . . there’s only another week before the … Continue reading

I don’t mind rainy days . . . provided I’m inside, all comfy and dry. That said, today, a rainy and wet day, I went and sat outside where I could enjoy the gentle rain that thoroughly soaked everything. Of … Continue reading
We were gone from August 30th to September 16th and — as mentioned in THIS post — of the 8,859 photos I shot, 4,273 were shot with the Nikon P900. In fact, up to the very last, I had considered … Continue reading
This is the fourth of three posts documenting separate visits to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Yes, I’m channeling Douglas Adams. Anyway, this being the fourth visit to the zoo, I concentrated even more on getting shots … Continue reading

Edited to Add: the actual date of the photos is 2005. This post is an edited copy of a post that was made on another platform prior to starting this blog. The 2008 in the title is a bit misleading … Continue reading
It’s the end of the day . . . just a regular day. We exercised, cleaned, ate, and watched $56M worth of armament hit a base in Syria. Lots of opinions expressed forcefully and with passion. Perfect time for me … Continue reading
I’ve mentioned before — or should have — the Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area is the haunt for our daily walks. Depending on the day, we walk anywhere from 4.3 miles to 6.4 miles before hitting the gym. On this particular … Continue reading
Note: Based on feedback I received, posts on this blog are now longer and with more photos. I don’t know the exact age, but around eight years of age, I feasted on a zombie . . . er . . … Continue reading
