A Little Of This And That



Lilies at an abandoned farmstead.



Fishing with my youngest
On my sandy beach
Catching some big fish
While some were just out of our reach.

"Oh sorry, I didn't mean to scare them away," he said to those sitting in the bird blind.
Always one in every crowd.

  9. I'm curious, too, about the blue bug and that stone building in the picture with the old car. At first, I thought it might be a courthouse, but it didn't seem to have the flags and monuments that one usually sees in front of a courthouse.
