 At Yorktown, Virginia, there was a terrible battle.  In order to survive the attack from the British the inhabitants ran down to the river and hid under the cliffs and in the caves.  This is one of those caves.  Can you imagine hiding in a cave in fear for your life?  Sometimes we all need a cave.  Thankfully we eventually, when ready, take small steps back out into life.

Darn Flies

This time of year I find all sorts of creepy crawlies in the yard. The most irritating are the flies! I guess they enjoy the smell of my sweat because it seems as soon as I sit down to cool off they start buzzing around me. Maybe I should stop working in the yard? Naw, I enjoy it and it keeps me slim(ish) and trim(ish) so I will keep at it.

Checkbook Challenge

I hate to balance my checkbook. I have been doing it for over 40 years, from way before the time of computers. In all that time I have not found one mistake that the bank made, not one! I myself have messed up a couple of times but the bank has always been right. So why the heck do I keep balancing my checkbook? Am I brave enough to trust the bank and not my own bookkeeping? I guess I will just put my neck out and see if I can let it go. Probably not.  Sigh.
