He Spotted a Fox on North Carolina Beach

My good friend and blog follower Bill is on the beat.  Again. This time in OIB NC.  (That’s Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina.)

 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.

And the coincidence is I’d just watched the new version of The Little Prince and was reminded of my favorite quotation.

“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” “What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.

Mid-Winter Break

Actually we are not even a month into true winter but wanted to tell you the blog will be on mid-winter break for the next week. Will miss you and will catch up with you upon my return.  

  
Hope the Puzzle People can find a replacement piece for this 1976 USA puzzle. I value New York. 


Ice Skating Saturday Night

Jack was invited to an  birthday party at the ice skating rink. He was so excited.   Mark took him.

We came an hour later for “free skate” but I didn’t don skates.

A good photo op for Grandma, who happened to have the real camera, not just the iPhone.

Lots of reflections, not enough light or too much light.

Made adjustments.

On the way home I got to photograph a brightly lit house display as I was in the passenger seat.

Hibiscus in Ohio 

Saw these blossoms on the tree in my family’s living room. Used the iPhone.
  

How you change your angle a few degrees and the light is so different, always learning.
