Do You Believe in Magic?

There were so many beautiful things to see at Oak Thicket Park, and as we walked the various trails, I took several pictures. These shots I’m sharing with you do not do justice to the beauty we encountered, and I’m thinking about getting a new camera. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these little magical glimpses of our weekend. Read the rest of this entry »

The Fayette Creature


The efficiency cabins where we stayed.

If you live in Texas and like to fish, swim, boat, or just relax in beautiful surroundings near the water, I highly recommend a trip to Oak Thicket Park at Fayette Lake. Sherry and I spent the weekend there, and it is a gorgeous park. Read the rest of this entry »

We’ll Be Back

Our little dog Dockers is over sixteen years old, and in doggie years—no matter how you count them—that’s pretty old.

Then! Four of them pounced on me, cuffed me and dragged me, kicking and screaming, to the van parked at the curb! Read the rest of this entry »

A Jealous Crowning

Victoria C. Slotto, hosting dVerse Poets Pub’s, Meeting the Bar: Allegory, has invited us to attempt an allegorical poem, and I’ve given it a whirl. I don’t know that what I’ve done fits the definition, or if it’s merely confused gibberish, but if the latter is closer to the truth, please be gentle with your comments.
