About me

My name is Andrew and I welcome you to my blog.

I lived in Texas for decades (with a stop in Kansas) before emigrating to Canada after meeting and marrying a most delightful woman named Faye. We own three two dogs, live in a small town in Ontario, and are fairly content with our lives.

I usually post a photo and comment four, five, six, perhaps seven days a week. I used to regularly take a day off on Wednesday; now I take a day or three off when the need, or mood, strike me.


Our families, certain aspects of our personal lives, when we vacation, our jobs.

I will very rarely write about COVID-19; SARS-CoV-2; the events and personalities which which have made 2020 such a tumultuous year. There are many, many sources to go to for news (and so-called news); for facts (and so-called facts); for opinions, informed and otherwise.

I intend this to be a place where you might find a little respite, a little calm, perhaps a little tranquillity in the midst of all that is going on. It seems to me that many of us, most of us, perhaps almost all of us need such a place from all of the upheaval in our lives. I know need such a place.

This is, and will continue to be, that kind of place.


Posts will feature the photo of the day and a brief thematic description.

Almost every post will have a photo, sometimes two. I photograph birds, our dogs Fitzi and Lucy, rural scenes and landscapes, flowers, sunrises and sunsets. Sometimes I will sneak in a photo of baseball, us, or something else.


I know that is grammatically incorrect.

While I welcome comments, my life is not open for debate. Please do not offer unsolicited advice. Advice often benefits the giver more than the recipient, with one exception – when I specifically say “I need advice.”

While I am pretty tolerant please watch your swear words (I didn’t say don’t swear *grin*).

Thanks for coming. I invite y’all to visit regularly and to comment often.
