Earl Grey


I think Earl Grey just likes having his picture taken. So I oblige. Christmas over. All quiet. Nothing to be done. Nice.

Christmas Eve


It’s a summer night this winter on Christmas Eve in the Outer Banks. All my doors are wide open, yet a fire roaring just for mood. Yes Santa showed up for our family fest at my home and well it was just flat out magic. I do savor world travel yet the moments on my front porch are surely the sweetest of all.

The last four months…


The last four months. Hannah wedding to Christmas Eve. Without my iPhone shots I would never be able to remember life in sequence. When things happened is never important to me. Still it’s enlightening to see real time sequence. I do view everything as one big picture as here. Merry Christmas!




When winter comes you might think my cats would want to come inside and sleep by a warm fire. Nope. Even on the coldest days they prefer outside. Yet when I return home from driving around running errands, their fave spot is the warm hood of my truck. These two are brothers and rarely separate. Now I must drive off for Christmas prep. Hate to make them move . On the other hand the hood needs a good warm up.



I always love it if a client buys me a first class ticket.. Usually however I am flying economy. Of course like all experienced economy flyers I hv learned how to always get an exit row aisle seat OR by the right attitude at check in counter get a whole center row and end up with a stretch out sleep across the Atlantic..Flying on Monday works.. Ahhh the small pleasures!!
