Deserve

All I had with me was a camera phone on my walk this afternoon when I found this.   I enhanced the color a tad with my PicSay Pro app and voilà!  Since I haven't mentioned it in a while, if anyone is looking for a good app for your smart phone to do quick, but quality photo …

Algebra is Cute

I was looking at the cover of Elayn Martin-Gay's Intermediate Algebra (Fifth Edition) and thought, if a person didn't understand English, the conclusion might be drawn that this was a book on art history.  It looks so innocuous.  One would never guess that pages of formulas waited within the hardcover with indifferent patience.  But, I am beginning to appreciate some …

Espress-O-Junction

Espress-O-Junction, in Burlington, Washington,  is my favorite drive-thru espresso stand between Mount Vernon and Bellingham.   The baristas know what I want before I order it, I love the rich flavor of their espresso, and the little details like chocolate covered coffee beans on the lid just top off the experience.  And really, when you have a long …

Wax Tails

A Piece of Dirty Dan

Yesterday afternoon ended with a London Fog from Tony's Coffee (always done to perfection) and a stroll through the Village Green in Fairhaven where I stopped to read my new book, The House of God by Samuel Shem.   Chapter I of this book made me wonder if medicine is a good field to go into.  The jury is …

Cat Scratch Fever

David and I found a friendly stray feline on the way to coffee yesterday afternoon.  Here's my view, and here's his view. David's Images of Life Camera:  Motorola Droid Apps:  PicSay Pro Location:  That familiar path between work and Fred's;  Burlington, WA

Surviving

I'm learning an entirely new operating system at work over the next couple of weeks.  And I still have meetings to attend.  And busy work to complete.  And my brother and his family just arrived in Western Washington.  And tomorrow I'm hanging all of my work at Tony's Coffee House and still have two pictures …
