One Delightful Summer Afternoon

One of the delights of my life is the wooded area behind my house. One afternoon, as we were relaxing inside, we noticed these three young deer exploring. They heard our moving around and looked up, determined that there was not threat and continued to graze. Eventually, they simply stepped into the trees and disappeared.

OPHS Band Camp Show - 2011

Great show tonight with the new band director, Mr. Hall. Kids are pumped and parents are optomistic. Going to be a good year!

Tree Line

A wall of geen.
Grape vines climbing over treetops
Potatoe vines with broad round leaves
New trees like eager bushes that can't wait to grow up
All reaching for the sun.
Behind the wall of green
A brown and white fawn
Explores her new home.

Cracker Barrel on Vacation

It has been "tradition" to meet up with family on our way to family vacation. This year we made the stop on our own. Everyone is getting breakfast but me. Hey, it's 1:30 already.
