DC Walkabout With Kyle

Kyle and I went on a walkabout in DC. Just for a few minutes. He was hurt last week and can’t watch TV or play games or read until he is a little better. So since he can’t go to school, I drove downtown and we spent a few minutes at the Jefferson Memorial. I […]

Terrific pic of Kyle!! You do think about bridges in more abstract detail than I ever will. Bridges are lucky to have you!!

New Mexico! Up High!!

On a short walkabout in New Mexico, I boarded a tram and went to the top of Sandia Peak. T’was very cold, 15 degrees! But the views were spectacular and I wished I had brought my “big camera” but…I didn’t think I’d have time. Riding up the tram I sort of expected that James Bond […]

You jet jockeys just never learn about altitudes, do ya? Egads!! Makes me dizzy just looking at the picture!! Glad you got some sight seeing in after the lousy flight! I’ve seen enough of NM in my lifetime! Nights in Gallup’s “lovely” RV park every time we did a cross country with the trailer! Got tired of the place!

Springtime Hawk

Sitting on the back deck in 80 degree weather in March!! Who would think this was possible. The birds (and the pollen) are out in force. I took my camera out to see if I could capture some of the woodpeckers but instead found this Red Tailed hawk. Amazing.

We had a ladder backed woodpecker trying to steal nectar out of the hummer feeder for a couple of days. I think he actually got a little bit but he hasn’t been back for a while now. Nice snap of the hawk! Look out bunnies & mousies!!

old town walkabout with kyle

Kyle was doing research on Robert E. Lee for a school report. He and I went to Old Town and started at Christ Church where he sat in Lee’s pew and saw where the Washington family sat. Then we walked over to the boyhood home of Lee. While walking we saw the house claimed to […]
