Holy cotton balls Batman! You can see these bales are as big as that big Ford truck. A typical sight on the back roads of Virginia... cotton and Ford.

It's the things that we see everyday that make us feel safe and secure. Virginia is my home and I like it.

Knock on wood... it seems like life is calming down some.  The last several years have been just plain icky.  Bad things have happened around me and around others too.  For heaven's sake, Donald Trump is President of the United States.  I still feel like I'm living in an alternate universe.  Oh well.  One day, one step, one breath at a time.

This is a picture of the great ape at the Norfolk zoo.  He seems to be contemplating life too.

Spring Color

This time of year I love the colors of all my blooming plants... azaleas, dogwoods, rhododendron, phlox, iris, lily of the valley, all of them! As I work in my garden I try to use more perennials than annuals in order to cut down on the work. Still, one of the nice things I do for myself is visit the garden center. There is always something new to try.

If you haven't visited Casey's archive in awhile it is still funny.
