"Oh, dear, bread and beer - if I were whiskey, I wouldn’t be here!"
The immortal words of Gordon VanDusen, my grandfather. For some reason these words have been rolling around in my brain for several days, I always loved it when he said this, I’d giggle my ass off every time!

Beyond this tree I spent many happy hours of my childhood…but what was once an open field with a fringe of woods that trailed behind the houses on the top of the hill and down to my friend Amy’s house, is now overgrown with brambles, poison ivy, and locust trees…coyotes, fox, deer, raccoons, skunks and other wildlife live there now…no one goes in there because of the deadfalls from the infamous Labor Day Storm of 1998 are dangling about and are likely to finish their fall if disturbed…Phillip always kept it mowed while he owned it…another fellow bought it, thinking he could make profit by dividing it into lots…but no one would sell the right of away to him…does my heart good to see it go wild instead of succumbing to development…progress…

There is a Little Monster under there…but he’s so black, you can’t see him…(I think his eyes were shut.) Our little kitty friend has integrated successfully with the rest of the resident kitties, tho’ there are still occasions of hissing, there haven’t been fights, (he runs away with the “haha” tail arched behind him and a happy bounce, he wants to play.) 
I love my little black kitty!

A little yellow flower that will take over the world, if you let it…

This sweet little fellow is my Daddy when he was three years old…(OMG can’t you just scoop him up and squeeze him!) Today is his funeral, he was 87 years old this year…I’ve wandered through hundreds of photographs these last few days…this one is my favorite…he still had that infectious smile, and he knew how to laugh…he was a happy fellow. 
I miss him, but it is a relief that he is at peace at last…
