Ashton Farms Peaches

The weather is definitely cooler and fall is arriving. We might be on the hook for another tropical storm or hurricane or whatever. So off to the Farmers’ Market again; Kelsey and I went to the Ashton Farms stand again (picture of Ada Ashton on July 25). Their peaches are awesome. They also have other […]

One of my favorite fruits and I can’t find any worth eating around here. I confess I haven’t tried the Farmer’s Market. Might have to consider that. I don’t like most other fruits either, bro. Those look absolutely YUMMY!

A rusty camera is not a good thing! Besides, I miss the pix when you don’t post new ones! What is that thing in the cup? Somehow I don’t picture wine & chocolate going together very well but to each their own! Glad you got out for a little relaxation!

Soup!? I guess this is as exciting as it gets. Sigh.

Others are out shooting cathedrals, lions up close, but me…cans of soup at the grocery store. I am still living with my 50mm and have managed to irritate most of my work colleagues. My friends and family are just used to it. I thought the colors of the soup cans merited a shot. Usually I […]

Amy certainly has colorful labels! No wonder you found them worthy of a picture. Seems to me you already did the “lions up close” thing, didn’t you? ‘Course, this one makes me hungry!! 🙂
