little boxes

Lookitthat, I had a sale…color me shocked and amazed “hey guys, we can eat meat for thanksgiving!” . . . . I sold the Complete Run of Tightwad Gazette listing off Bonanza.com (neé Bonanzle.com) which is a damn fine listing site.

There used to be a wooden sign here Merrill S Gaunt Square. It was a victim of an ice storm after years of neglect. I reported the sign had fallen about 18 months ago..it’s still not there. Granted the sign and the iron signpost were at least 50 plus years old, it’s very sad that […]

Two of the THREE green herons I got to see yesterday. Today I passed the CPR course (my last certification was like 5 presidents ago) and became another volunteer with the Community Emergency Response Teams…so far i am not called upon to do anything more than that.

one bird at a time

I got my draft copy of the Methuen photoessay book..most of the pictures looked good. there are a few i’d like to reshoot and some i can’t. But overall i do need to shoot another two dozen to flesh the book out. Perhaps I will take the lazy person’s way out and some corny postcard […]
