Red Barn Roofs


I encountered these barns, including the one with the big hex sign, enroute from Morehouse, Missouri to Saint Paul, Minnesota.  Thanks to forgottenman, I was free to shoot pictures while he drove.  The second one is a bit unfocused.  He was probably speeding!

2017 Favorite Photo of the Year


I absolutely love this photo of Ollie when he was runt of the litter.


Now seven months old, he is the heaviest of the four siblings. Here he is just a few days ago, enjoying the remains of the Christmas turkey!!!

Bad News for the Substitute Teacher

IMG_4972Bad News for the Substitute Teacher

Pity the poor substitute.
No matter just how resolute,
up on the subject and astute,
no matter that you’re deadly cute,
these factors will not constitute
a success that is absolute.
They will not render class clowns mute,
for they, too, have their horns to toot.
These truths I swear can’t be refuted.
You’ll rue the day you substituted!

After today’s poem about English teachers, Mike Akin requested that I write one about substitute teachers.  I meet every challenge!  Here it is.
