Speechless Sunday: Lawn Art

In a neighborhood where one can find a few pink flamingos, this fabulous bird got my attention!   It looks like something you'd find in one of the shops that Jeff Dowler writes about in his Localism posts! 

Alas, my camera was not handy, but of course, my I-Phone was right in my hip pocket, so I was able to take advvantage of this photo op!

My third Rain Camp? Do I have a thing for that Rain Camp rock star Ben Kinney? Not really. He has a business model that is very different than my own although I can certainly take a lot of what he says and apply it to my own. OK, the… more

Wordless Wednesday: More Brightly Colored Leaves!

As November nears the halfway point, we are still seeing some spectacular colors, although most of the leaves are now off the trees and on the ground. I'm very lucky to be able to use the back roads in Rock Creek Park to get around the city,… more
