Shades Of Grey April 23, 2017

shades of grey   In the course of my genealogy research I came across this image.  A sign indicating some of my ancestors emigrated from the Netherlands to New York.  Apart from that information I thought the image was very artistic.

Sarah’s mom (and my friend) Magda Rubalcava is an award winning internationally renown tapestry weaver – wouldn’t this make a spectacular tapestry?

 

A Raccoon Ran……. February 19, 2017

This morning I caught a glimpse of a raccoon running across my neighbor’s back yard and disappearing into some “things” piled up near his garage.  The raccoon was bigger than a fat cat.

That’s the excitement so far this morning in the view from my seat at my computer.  It topped the sight of 2 flickers and several finches on my deck railing.
