Photo Friday: Chocolate Friday

The day after Thanksgiving, I stay snug inside and up to my elbows in chocolate. This year I’ll have two daughters, two friends, and 10 children helping.  I’m hoping the men will get the tree up while confectioners work.

Photo Friday: A Mrs. Potts for Everyone

10 years ago I made a silly, splurgy purchase of a Mrs. Potts costume.  It cost $50.00.  What can I say, I got carried away by Duckie’s Halloween exuberance.  She planned a Halloween Party with two ghoulish assistants:  Love-One and me.  She scoured the catalogs and we ordered our costumes together:  She, Minnie Mouse; me,  Mrs. Potts. We all love Mrs. Potts.  Sorry, no pictures of me as Mrs. Potts.  I’m the one holding the camera.

Only questions: Which business led to the other? Did patients need help lifting and hauling during recovery? Did the light hauling get the doctor through college?

Which is more profitable? Following his Bliss and can’t decide which is more blissful?   Related articles Startups are no longer business as usual: Steve Blank, Stanford’s startup guru (

I snapped these photos while I was pedaling.  Love my iPhone!  A little bit of blurriness is from the fog and some is because I of the pedaling.  No retouching.  Oh that was peaceful.  I think I’ll do it again tomorrow.  The bike ride, not the pictures.  

Photo Friday: Northern Flickers

Our hickory fell.  Well, not the whole thing, the top third of the  tree just bent over and touched the ground.  Squirrels re-routed.  Ferns withered; garden flocks brightened. In a hollow, just below the break, Two Northern Flickers nested.  They like privacy. A hickory’s canopy is perfect cover.  Flickers are shy.  We hear them, but normally see them once or twice a summer. If we’re lucky. Exposed by the felled hickory, the pair hopped out on a branch and signaled their dismay.The couple survived the natural disaster and made the best of things for the sake of their young family.…
