This Ain't No Bus Stop

It's been awhile since I published anything (at all), but specifically, under the category of Things I See Along the Road.  That's right, an innocent walk with the dog(s) reveals all manner of trash, like the dumped roof shingles that have been piled up for over a month.  However, that's not really noteworthy.

But this was:

Perhaps some kind soul has seen me walking the dogs and thought I may need a soft place to rest.  Tilly did give it a thorough inspection, and didn't react to any hidden drugs.  Of course, she doesn't really have any training in that area. 

There was another piece of this sectional just about 50 feet away, and it was upside down.  So the question remains, was one tossed and one placed carefully upright?  Did they both fall randomly from a truck?

This could be a caption contest.

Summer Fun Requires the Right Gear

It's not been a good summer for swimming.  It's been busy with a lot going on.  All of which, it seems, have required many pairs of socks.

More Summer Fun....and Weirdness

Ah, the bounty of what the earth will yield - black raspberries:

The wonder and deliciousness of lush basil turned into pesto:
Finally, the completely weird and random items found in a second hand shop window.  Also, completely non-PC.

Summer Adventures and Unexpected Treasures

Just getting out of town and looking at new things stimulates the brain, making life that much more interesting.

This little gem is a bird's nest ball.  It is the dribs and drabs of alpaca yarn stuffed into a ball for birds to gather to feather their nests.  Wouldn't that be pretty (and soft!)?

A little shop in Grand Rapids, Ohio sold these, along with other rather impressive products.  Grand Rapids was a charming town that is well maintained and scenic as well.

What's next?  MEAD MAKING SEMINAR!  Woot!
