A View From the Road

In-N-OutTo Go, Otherwise Known as Eating In     I do not know how this moment could be more perfect! California owns “car culture” in my humble opinion. There are few other places, in this great nation, that provide a more inviting drive than California. The state’s highways and byways really do inspire you to…

  Bears Indeed! Driving through Lake Tahoe, California, I spotted this View, and had to stop to snap a picture.  I am sorry I cannot adequately credit the business; but I so appreciate their whimsy! Whimsy will return one day soon.

Do You Remember   Do you remember the day we met? Everything seemed so ordinary, I could not have imagined what that encounter would mean. It was your earrings which drew me to you. They did not match. I figured it was with intent; But was not sufficiently sophisticated to know that was the look…

The Earrings   I know I have been thinking about how this month we mark the year anniversary, of our lives being impacted by the pandemic.  But even though there is a lot to say, I do not want to focus on covid-19 anymore.  I know we cannot truly avoid thinking about it, and it…
