Not my photos -


It's the place in Scotland
where she said
as people gathered
in England
The announcement was made
by double rainbow.

this moment seems holy

Tucked Away

Lovely Town Center
There's a Reading Room, Sandwich Shop, Coffee Shop, Ice Cream Parlor, Grocery, - 
A small set of townhouses behind the Center
A restaurant

People seem to smile more
Open Doors for each other 

Across the street is the Fire Department
It kinda looks like a magic castle.
a nice place.

Wirth Grove

Wirth Grove.
was home to a family business
with a gas station
and a blacksmith
I bet it was wonderful
The township
has done some amazing planning
and turned it into a 
Town Center
worth visiting.
Community Art



Walkways, Shelters, Gathering Spots
There is posted  schedule full  of summer events 

a few well designed - welcoming shops
that aren't "in your face"

and - if you are walking with your pupster
You'll be thrilled to find the underpass:

Nice fields on the opposite side


*us? getting 'back on track'

Bringin' the Sun Up & - Ella Wheeler Willcox -

It's taken a loong time for me to find this music file
remember how to share
(guitar & vocal)
Some time ago
with another musician playing flute
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox-


 The pupster & I remembered to power up and carry our teeny camera
attempting to get ourselves "back on track."

I'm from the Southwest.
Even though I've been in the Midwest
a very looong time
I'm still amazed at the humidity,
LOTS of water here - 
rivers, creeks - 
Stuff Grows

This is the back yard of a friendly looking church.


Look!  They even have a bench, 
I wonder how surprised they would be to find us resting there.

Actually, we were using the back tip of their property
to cut over to this pond.
We're going to walk around
and watch the sun come up.

Happy Day to YOU!

love & love,

I have No Idea what I'm doing.
I Do know my next few days are gonna be busy.
(I suspect that's a good thing.)
I should figure out how to leave a 
"permanent until further notice"
I am able to visit blogs
have not, yet,
figured out how to "sign in." 
That leaves me in the "anonymous zone."
love & love,

No "regular" adventure . . .

seconds of
musical surprise:

Today Joel sent this Good Reminder:


Today you are You,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive
that is Youer than You.

We've been rainy this week.
My favorite weather reporter,
often includes "walking reports"
from his dog.
looks like some of our leash plans this week
will be altered.
BUT, rain - or no rain -
I've got a reason to power up the teeny camera this Friday.
time for some adventure
