How awesome! Ducks from the neighboring (and far richer) subdivision are descending on my driveway! This isn’t the first time they’ve altered their migratory pattern – though what they want in our decidedly less swank street, I have no idea.
It’s so great to have nephews, because you get to convince people to go to things like Pirate Festivals “for the kids,” when really – it’s for you. So, ahoy, mateys! A pirating we go!
Summer approaches … and that means, for me, it’s Stevie time. I’ve never been sure what made Stevie my particular diva. Certainly, Edge of Seventeen came right as I was on the edge of that age. MTV was in full force by the time Stand Back came out, and I twirled around on the harvest gold shag carpet of my parents’ living room, dreaming one day I would get out of North Carolina and be rich and famous, and have coffee with Stevie and talk…
It’s in! My newest Star Trek masterpiece – Star Trek: Enterprise! 30 pages of Enterprise facts and a cool light-up ship!

I am not the best patient under any circumstances, but this laid me out physically, emotionally and psychologically. There were moments I wondered if I really would make it back to health, or if this was the best I would ever be again. A fatalistic thought, to be sure…
It is too nice to be indoors working today, even if 2112 is playing as I type. These are from my mid-afternoon constitutional:
I’m new to the Walking Dead show, though I read the comics years ago. I binge-watched as much as I could the last two weeks so I could enjoy last night’s mid-season premiere. The show is excellent (though highly depressing and gory – much like my beloved Game of Thrones) and watching Carl rediscover some of the pudding-and-books delights of suburban living, made me realize A) I would never survive the zombie-world order without some Pantene and running water and B) Why is it ALWAYS…
Just more pics of the cloudy desert skies that threaten rain, yet never come through! Am I turning into the Ansel Adams of Spring Valley, NV?
I only just discovered the black and white settings of my iPhone camera and that by accident. I was taking pictures at Valley of Fire and came out with some crazy cool images. Now, I’m a B/W fan!
