Recently, on a day with Grandhunk #1, here, Day #1890.
I took so many photos & some strange ones.
At one point, Jordan smiled, as is in disbelief,
as he watch me shoot this sweet old tree. 

No plaque for explanation.
Surely at some point, the post had been adjusted
to aid this aged leaning tree. Poignant, I thought.
Don't we all need support & help at different times in our life.
I smiled back at Jordan and explained ...
that it takes very little to thrill me. 
I am a cheap date!

So in this crazy world that confounds reason, maybe 
it would help to practice appreciation on a daily basis? 
Maybe we could spend more time outdoors, and 
reflect on our blessings & relationships with others?

Animals seem to?

So tired today. 
Doing paper work, (not collage) is so tedious!
I am trying to get my stuff in order. Ughhh!
Newsflash to self, I am not getting any younger!
And if it's hard work today, it will be harder later, right?
Time to be a grown up. No fun at all!
And then there's this blog #1910 calling?
So as I went through files, I came across this ...

circa 1920?

I thought it's season appropriate, and
some of you might like the vintage artwork?

It's from my Grandma to her daughter, my Mom.
I love looking at her handwriting ...
from nearly 100 years ago. Precious.

And a mailbox bonanza!
This great postcard from Minnesota artist & friend, 

I love his work & this really saved my day!

Thanks Terry!
