Half time...

So many potential subjects on this day — Terry Pratchett, the Ides of March, Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day, the rather nasty illness that’s kept me from working or drawing or writing or generally being useful for several days. 1,086 more words

the late bird....

{The juncos are slowly giving way to house finches when it comes to non-sparrow visitors to the bird feeders … they’re still around though, even if it is a little harder to see them without all that snow on the ground. 458 more words

might as well be walkin' on the sun....

{Okay, it’s not *that* bad out. But it was certainly above 80 degrees today, and when it’s nearly October that always irks me a bit. I’m not saying I don’t recall, for example, the wildly disappointing 70-degree Halloweens of ’99 and ’00, but overall I’ve still come to expect better of this time of year. 245 more words
