A Gentleman

Let it Snow

My mother is now near us in Ohio, and hasn’t seen snow for 35 years. I hung a plaque on her door the other day, which said, “Let it Snow!” Very soon outside her window there were big flakes of snow!! The next day it dumped down some more snow! If anyone wants me to hang such a plaque on their door, just let me know! 🙂 Have a great weekend, one and all, with or without snow!

A Furry Distraction

Is Spring Here?

I saw a flash of orange, and sure enough, there were two robins in my back yard on January 6!!

Wedding Cake

A beautiful unique wedding cake. This was for the bridal table. The rest of the guests had a choice of many cheesecakes for their desserts.

One of many cheesecakes available at a beautiful wedding we attended last weekend!

Bridal Table Arrangement

The bride, a good friend of ours, arranged this plate for me to photograph it! It was a lovely wedding!

Stay Warm

We spent a lot of time in front of this fire the last 6 days! Thanks, Marvin for stoking the fires!

Hanging on the Line

If you sent these folks a card, you are probably hanging on the line, or should I say, “Your card is hanging on the line! I thought it was a cool way to display your greeting cards at Christmas time!

Relaxing at a Hotel on the way home from a 8 day trip to Kansas for a wedding, and catching up with cousins! It was a wonderful time. Don’t forget the importance of your relationships with extended family! Whether you share few or many memories, it is a good time to reminisce about the past with stories of your parents, grandparents, etc. We will arrive at home this evening, and get into our routine again!

I entered this Amish home basement, and a lady was doing the laundry. I almost took a photo with my phone, but instead raced to my vehicle, got my camera, and by the time I returned the lady was finished. The Laundry was not going through the wringer, anymore, but there were still some suds in the other tub. A missed opportunity. Another morning, I was driving down the road with some taxi customers, so I decided not to stop and photograph the scene in the neighboring field! It was a team of six horses pulling a corn picker that was harvesting the corn field. As I have been pondering this subject for weeks, I now forget what the other missed opportunity that happened that day!

I trust that in the coming year neither you/nor I will have too many missed opportunities, whether a photo, or encounters with family or friends!

I am almost certain the washing machine in the photo is an old Maytag which is a standard in many Amish homes!

The bride gives the groom, her full attention!!
