James Garner...One cool Dude!

James Garner passed away last night. To me, James was like an uncle you know you had but never got to see much. I have never met him, but I think people here felt a connection with him. Who wouldn’t want to claim him as their own, he seemed like an awesome guy. He was born here in Norman, OK., part of Main Street is named James Garner Corridor. There is a great statue of him, from the Rockford Files days, that stands near the RR tracks.
He will be missed and remembered by all as one cool dude!

Perfect imperfection


Lots and lots of tomatoes...I have 5 pints in the freezer already. These will be ripe in a day or so...I have to pick them a bit early so the squirrels and birds don't get them. So far I have only lost two.

Sandhill Cranes

I took a quick trip up to Illinois and Wisconsin. While in Wisconsin we saw Sandhill Cranes....beautiful birds. We see them here in Oklahoma during spring and fall migration.
We were at Horicon Marsh when we saw these awesome birds. I love visiting Horicon Marsh. The birds that you can see are amazing...Plus it was a nice 72 degrees. You can't beat that when it is 90 degrees at home.

Hello July!

Well, June is gone and here we stand in July. This year is flying by me.
So much that needs to be done before the end of this year comes. It's time for me to focus on what's really important.
