Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.


Rain! The bane and the pain of the baseball game! OMG...a rhyme. Well, maybe not. But it's been wet here, for days. And although my camera is supposedly resistant to rain, I am not. I can literally see myself rusting. My wife says they are age spots but I think they're really rust. I will try Brillo pads later today.Our mulch in the front, which is normally just mulch, has become a mushroom garden. And not the pleasant looking kind of garden, more like the kind you'd find outside the castle of Snow White's Wicked Queen. I decided to get a closeup of one of the...hmmm, whatever they are called (trees, plants, fungi???) and while I was shooting, a squirrel decided to investigate so I did a portrait of him. He gets a couple of 8x10s for posing.I think the weather will clear today. I hope so. We are marching in the PeoplesClimate  demonstration this Saturday and although I'd still walk in the rain, this rust is troublesome...perhaps Rustoleum.Front Yard Mushroom MacroFront Yard Squirrel
