• It’s Time to Decorate

Another Funny Fun Foto that I call It’s Time to Decorate. On second thought, I should have called this one, You Light Up My Life. This is our son Ken, who is being decorated by his wife Jennifer.

• Sathyam Orphanage

My first stop on my India-Kid Mission this August was a Children’s Orphanage in Bombay (Mumbai). It was called Sathya Nikethan. Here is the Head Master of the children’s home. I had never been to an Orphanage before, so I was apprehensive about how I would do there and how I would be received. There [...]

• Riddle #5, What Am I?

  Riddle Me This! What Am I? I am a high flyer, But I get knocked around. I leave and return on demand, Many close calls, you understand. You might say, I am yellow, And I am…a well rounded fellow. When new, I am fuzzy, But when old, they say…”fuzzy, was he?” All ages play [...]

• My Floral Bouquet #6

These floral beauties are daisies, that I captured in Estonia. Daisies are quite common flowers, found in so many places. Daisies are, to me, rather simple flowers, rather symmetrical with only two colors with the clean white pedals. They have a clean crisp look in contrast to the green foliage. These flowers impressed me as [...]

• Rare Elk Sighting

This Funny-Fun Foto was taken at my brother Spencer’s home in Gresham, Oregon. Elk are rare in that city, but occasionally one can be found near homes when hunger drives them out of the forest (it worked for me). This photo captures the essence of Elk, with many years represented in this fine “rack.” You [...]

• The Unspeakable Gift

More than thirty years ago, a dentist, from the Midwest, was taking me to the airport. He observed my five missing teeth. He told me that my smile “offended him!” Then, he offered to repair my teeth, if would fly there to get them repaired. He told me that he would do all the work [...]

• The Fruit of Gratefulness

Saturday, while taking a walking break from my writing in Palm Springs, I found myself checking out the fruit to determine its readiness for picking. The grapefruit turns from green to yellow, then brighter yellow to a reddish blush. When this reddish blush appears, that’s how you can tell this type of grapefruit is ripe. [...]

• The Missing Puzzle Piece?

Many of us have had the experience of working on a large puzzle for hours only to find towards the end that one piece is missing to complete the puzzle. The picture is incomplete without that one piece. But where is it? You might look everywhere, only to conclude that it can’t be found. Well, [...]
