This afternoon I left a Shop ‘n Save where I don’t usually shop. I saw these eyeballs staring out of the dark frames.

This morning he sent me a photo. (He won the caption contest at the local paper recently- got in the newspaper Without dying or getting arrested post.
Since I was on jury duty today all day, it felt good to know I had a guest blogpost at the ready! Thanks Bill. See his photograph below.

My photograph Jane’s House on Atlantic Ave at Friendship was selected to be part of the show.
I’m glad this image was chosen as I feel it honors Jane’s memory. We liked to say we taught together in Hell.

Strolling with Charles (1) around the neighborhood.
Hot summer sun. The colors so rich and alive.
I appreciate the gardeners’ efforts.

I wanted my grandchildren to see an old time soda fountain. It was too early for ice cream so we bought some things to-go, for later after the Children’s Museum-snacks, bottles of water, chocolate coins and some sour patch kids from the candy selection.
We will return for ice cream before they head home.
