A Walk Through Petaluma, California

Editor’s Note: Today is a BIG day for my hometown. The little league boys of summer are playing for the title in the U.S National championship. This is big stuff for a small town.

Shame On Me Moment

I’m not sure exactly the moment when we turned into such an impatient lot, but we don’t like to wait, be delayed, or otherwise detoured in the slightest.

Today is Sunday, and I nearly forgot (read=lazy, took a long nap!) to post my #Photo of the Day.

Loving Remix

Editor’s Note: Happy summer gentle readers! I have not forgotten you or these blog pages, but when the weather beckons, who am I to decline??
