To Remember 

Poppies after church.  

The woman accepting donations for disabled veterans was an Air Force veteran.

Invitation to Read

A basket of books at the Urgent Care waiting room.  The Delaware County District Library offers the gift of a book as you wait.  

There was a basket of children’s books on  another end table.  I took a James Patterson mystery titled Mary Mary for my sister Mary.

I read the recipes in one but left it for someone else.  

Thank you Friends at the Delaware County  District  Library.

(My son Mark had a scratched cornea-ouch– our reason for being there.  He’s on the mend)

Cars on Edge

NYC- Spring Break. Spotted by my sister as we walked  by.

They looked even more precarious in person, though, as you stood below and looked up!

Late Afternoon at the Dam

Telling a story without words.   Sequence.

Reviewing these photos from the archives, I’d say I was an observer, not a participant.

Photos taken six years ago.

idiom- definition from Wikipedia

  1. An idiom (Latin: idioma, “special property”, from Greek: ἰδίωμα – idíōma, “special feature, special phrasing, a peculiarity”, f. Greek: ἴδιος – ídios, “one’s own”) is a phrase or a fixed expression that has a figurative, or sometimes literal, meaning. An idiom’s figurative meaning is different from the literal meaning.

 “sometimes used ….to mean just the opposite”

If you’ve been with me since the beginning of this blog (almost six years) you’ve probably seen one of my favorite posts from 2009.  Shot in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  Fiestaware bowl.
