“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.” ~ Will Rogers     Once again I came home to find Edgar near his woodpile. Jill LeMaster asked for video, so I shot a little with my phone (below). You can hear the parents having a fit. Edgar Allen Crow, Sr. and the Mrs. whom I call… wait for it… Sheryl (props to Sarah Dorpinghaus

“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” ~ Gail Devers     When I got home from work I saw a smallish bird sitting near the pine tree.

‎”A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?” ~ Charles M. Schulz Do you see him? It’s Kenny Rogers.

“Sky above me, Earth below me, Fire within me.” ~ Unknown Me and BFF Crystal Heis pulled out our Canons as we ambled through the new landscape work outside the Singletary Center. Famed Kentucky landscape artist, Jon Carloftis, spent the better part of two weeks adorning the outdoor sculptures.

“Do not make the mistake of thinking this is all real.” ~ Angelyn DeBord Last summer I was surrounded by dragonflies. I saw them everywhere I went. They swarmed my car at red lights. They swarmed me as I walked. It was one of the most unusual things I’ve ever experienced. I asked, “what do they mean?” They mean change.
