Andy

So, Charlie Parker’s #1, all-time favorite toy in the whole world is his hedgehog, Andy (pictured above).  We’ve had Charlie for almost four years now, and that’s how old Andy is, and despite being Charlie’s best friend and taken on adventures all over the house, Andy is in great shape (unlike Baxter‘s toys which get […]

Shaker, not stirred

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Today Kari and I went on a trip to the Berkshires where she was judging the craft fair at the 13th annual Country Fair at the Hancock Shaker Village.  I brought my big camera along to get some foliage shots. I didn’t have to go far because one of the best ones is right next […]

What we see every day

The Leeds Bike Trail, not twenty feet from my door. Wow!  My diabolical plan to purge my mind from the world of 2492 by writing it all out has worked.  This evening I wrote like a person possessed with Winters in Boston.  Lots of new scenes, with a bunch of (surprisingly) funny situations, which wasn’t […]

Random picture – at the car wash. Nice day today.  Our town is made up of several villages, and the one next to ours had its annual chicken BBQ day.  The local orchestra played hits from half a century ago, the olds got up and danced like it was 1999, and we had a nice […]
