Right, wrong and strange

Right...lunch with friend Elena
In the past couple of weeks, there's been the right, the wrong and the strange...

Wrong...scaring hikers at the start of the trail
Strange...Mikie pushing a boulder
Right...Hiking with friends Mary and Stan at Salt Lick Point Trail on bluffs of the Mississippi
Wrong..."limb pickup every week".  Tree limbs or another kind? fiberglass frog covered with apples. Even the eye is half an apple.

Right...finding a beautiful butterfly on our hike

Wrong...repairing the fire house door.  Glad they respond quickly but...

Right...camping with friends Gretchen & Craig in Knoxville, IL

So Wrong...a snake in my new flower garden...I am still having nightmares!
Strange...Why not 7 or 8 mph?

And so life goes. Right, wrong and strange.

Have a great week.


  1. We lost a planter's worth of plants when we had our house tented recently for termites, and we're planning to turn it into a vegetable garden, starting with fall vegetables. I'm excited, having never grown anything edible before; other than herbs that is.

    Life looks like it's rolling nicely along for you. :-)

  2. It's been a good year for growing fruits, vegetables and flowers. Right now we are harvesting raspberries, figs, tomatoes and squash. Next year we are planning to build a raised garden in an area where we removed some dead pine trees. I think the key is to NOT go overboard on planting and become a slave to the garden. Remind me of that next spring, ok?
