Click for Big Picture
Winter is back. Or perhaps winter never left. Or maybe this is just Mother Nature knocking on the door to remind us to start preparing because Winter is Coming.

Soap Saver Holes
My big toe hurts. My dog, Pika, stepped on it several days ago. She is larger than a small horse. Her nails are long and hard. I had shoes on but it did no good.
We’ve been enjoying this splendid warm weather and sunny blue skies. Click in to see if you can spot Pika and wild child running through the marshlands.
