Blast from the past (redux)

Taken sometime in fall of 1968 is my best guess. Joanne (first wife) and I met at UM College Park. The Zonker raced at Capitol Raceway and posted high twelves.

We have arrived in Colorado!

Well, we completed our move from Bakersfield to Meeker on November 1, 2001.  Everyone arrived safely and the people, dogs and horses are all fine.  We live about 3 miles outside of town on County Road 4, on the mesa overlooking Meeker and the White River...

Thanksgiving, a time for family

This holiday season has started.  The weather here in Delta is just about perfect for fall, crisp with a chill that reminds you of what is on the way.  I'm going into this season with anticipation of Christmas without hospitals, in good health.  I am so grateful to...

Jeff’s Birthday Bash Video

Great occasion, great guests and great food.  Even the cinnamon lemon Patron shots.

Little Baby Chick

This little guy (or girl) was hatched last week and gets around pretty well already!  He never gets more than a few feet from mother hen, but he ranges all over the yard, arena and pasture.  He was one of about 5 eggs in the nest but the only one that hatched for some...

No horses were harmed in the making of this photo

This isn't a real pic, it is actually two pics taken with my iPhone while the horses were sleeping one morning recently.  I stitched them together using the iPhone app Auto Stitch, cropped and framed them with the app Photogene, and added the lightning with the app...

Sunset in neighborhood

Just a quick snap taken during my walk/jog around the neighborhood on my birthday.  No exposure information saved since it was taken within the Runkeeper app on my iPhone 6 Plus.  Editing with Snapseed app to underexpose the lower section and with Touch/Retouch app to...

We DID move!

We finally moved from the house in Meeker , we stayed there wishing we had something larger for almost 6 years.  Although we put a lot into it by adding outbuildings and recently built a barn/shop, it has always not quite met our needs somehow.  The land was hilly,...

Burning trash in 55 gal. drum

We keep a old metal drum in the shed area to burn cardboard and other large paper trash items.  It gets fired up about every two weeks and saves s space in the single trash container that we put out for collection. It always makes me feel like a sterno bum when I fire...
