  • A NORMAL ENTRY
    May 22, 2018
    One of my readers wrote a note yesterday.  She said, “Oh, a normal post.” “I hadn’t realized my posts weren’t normal,” I reply.  Or, what is normal.  I write what’s happening to me.  Perhaps I see my world with a jaded eye.  Maybe I am not normal any more. I went to a woman’s meeting…

    May 21, 2018
    May 2018,  Disney Wonder leaving San Diego. The May Grey has been closing in.  I’m making a deliberate attempt to take my camera with me every time I leave the house.  And we have been out and about a bit more.  Yes, I forgot to take the camera out when I bought pants, but we…

  • MEA CULPA
    May 19, 2018
    (Picture later as it won't take it now.) I tried to open the ACS facebook page yesterday morning at 0700, and it wouldn’t open.  It told me that I had “opted out of this Facebook platform.”  I had not done that at all. I emailed the new boss asking if she had removed me.  I…

  • OLD ENGINEERING MARVELS
    May 16, 2018
    I must admit that I’m fascinated by the turn of the century engineering creations that are scattered all over America.  In Minneapolis, George and I traveled the river by burned out shells of flour mills.  Here we have the first of its kind on the west coast paper mill. Milaka took us out here to...

  • GOOD BETTER BEST
    May 14, 2018
    When I first get to work, I pull my apron and camera on and go take shots for the (ACS Discovery Shop/Point Loma) shop’s Facebook page. I stagger about the floor just shooting what I see.  I’ve been very lax about creating arrangements to shoot…in an hour or so, someone will come along and rearra...

    May 10, 2018
    Marc Chagall’s Bouquet, print.   Mostly I find myself smiling all the way to work.  I who forget everything have never forgotten to post an image to Facebook every morning.  When I first arrive at the store, I look for images that I might use. Always there is something that brings a smile to...

  • CARPET CLEANING DE JOUR
    May 8, 2018
      We are having the carpet cleaned…again.  While I was out this morning, G took down all the low art and moved all movable furniture.  The Carpet cleaner guy, who is an exceptionally nice man, does the best job of anyone we have ever had.  I know he doesn’t want to damage anything.  I know&h...
