Looking for Breakfast

This morning when I let the dogs out, I noticed a Harris Hawk in the neighbor’s tree.  I stood and watched for a while and decided to grab my camera before it took off.  It was probably a juvenile, considering its size.  I watched for a while longer as it scanned the landscape with it’s…

Give Us This Day Our Daily …

BREAD … I’m feeling particularly grateful today that we have food on our table.  So many around the world do not.  Let us give thanks for what we have, and send love and light around the world to our brothers and sisters in need.  Namaste”

The Day That Time Stood Still

What if it’s true that we humans are the only life forms that experience linear time?  You don’t see birds, flowers, dogs, cats, or any other beings wearing watches, right?  And none of them have electronic devices to measure time.  They all live in the NOW.  This year I’m trying more and more to do…

Before the Rain

The weather reports all say we’re supposed to have some big rain tonight and tomorrow.  I’m ready.  As far as I’m concerned, we never get enough. This photo was taken in my back yard as the sun started to peek under the early evening clouds. I hope the birds have some place nice and warm…

Old-Timers

Here’s a couple of pics I took a while back at a classic car show.  The first one is an old GMC delivery truck.  (Notice it only has one windshield wiper for the driver’s side). The second one is a Ford coupe.  Don’t ask me what year they are.  I don’t have a clue.  I…

Picky, Picky

This is another one of those signs that I saw in the restaurant on Sunday.  I thought it was so cute – it reminded me of the Little Rascals.  My brother and I watched that show faithfully as kids.  I miss those kind of TV shows.  If my brother was still with us, I’d search…

Balanced Diet

Wouldn’t you just love to go back to the days when you didn’t have to worry about what you ate?  Not a care in the world about getting enough of this vitamin or that vitamin?  Or not worrying about low-carb, low-fat, or high protein, Paleo, green coffee bean, etc. diets?  Well, I’m here to say…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

This week’s photo challenge from Word Press is BEYOND.  This image might make one wonder what’s beyond that rainbow.  Perhaps the second rainbow?  Or is there really a pot of gold?  I took this last summer during one of our monsoon rains.  I look forward to that every year.  It always brings some new photographic…

Hey There!

Just me popping in to see you.  No, I didn’t take this picture, but thought it was in keeping with this year of being happy.  I think he is, don’t you? I have some photos I’ve taken in the past few days and will get to posting them tomorrow.  In the meantime, be happy!  Namaste’…

Ahhh … Humidity at Last

Southern Arizona has always been known for being a rather dry climate but during the winter, it gets to the point of ridiculous sometimes.  I think I should have my own chapstick factory.  Right now we’re experiencing a very cold spell.  Low 20’s at night and high 40’s during the day.  So WS went on…

Funky Monkey’s New Friend

It seems I have carpel tunnel in my left hand, so I decided to try a little therapy.  And as it turns out, my new therapy is Funky Monkey Muse’s new friend.  I’m going to call him Chuckles because Smiley is way too cliche’.  Ha!  I squeeze Chuckles every night to keep all things important…

Guesses Anyone?

Just experimenting with my zoom lens and thought I’d post this.  Any guesses as to what it is?  Hint:  they used to be popular back in my Grandma’s era and are now coming back around again.  Namaste’
