Personal tragedy in family

I have not been on my blog for quite a while.  

My younger and only sister, Donna, died June 13th.  She had lived with the physical effects of a stroke from 2001; her right hand and foot would curl up and give her trouble, especially when she got really tired.  She was quite independent, though, and passed a driving test again. 

It was not expected this early and took us all for a loop.  Grieving still and miss her like crazy.  I loved my sister.  I took this picture about twenty days before her death.  Her daughter and I were with her when she died, I still have bad dreams about that whole day.  It is going to take a good long time before we are OK again.

Cat selfie

I was getting ready to snap a picture of the gray cat, BabyGirl,  in front of the window when all of a sudden, Gizmo, jumped up right in front of the lens staring right at me.  A cat selfie!  Isn't this cute?

Sunset across open field

Lovely sunset down the street from my niece.  Almost looks as if trees are on fire.  There is an open field with houses on either side. To view other sky pictures go to:

Flowers spotted around the area




Walking around looking for signs of Spring and these are just some of the flowers I saw.

'Blood Moon' night

Since my camera only has a 5x zoom this is what I got of the 'blood moon'.

A conversation


This is Smokey, who adopted us.  She loves my partner, Joe.  She is listening to him talk to her while they sit together in canvas chairs outside.
This is Joe talking to Smokey.
