WW: Dog Days, in #JustOneParagraph

WW: Dog Days, in #JustOneParagraph

There are actually three dogs here in front of “Two Salty Dogs”–they are Auggie, Max, and Cole, they’re on Facebook, and occasionally, they blog. While I can’t vouch for their salt content, I can confirm that they were pretty damp and sleepy as they basked in the warm sunshine of coastal Maine on a June morning. I suspect that they’d had some playtime out in the harbor, and we came upon them during their recovery […]

#WW: Beached/Reading, with #JustOneParagraph

#WW: Beached/Reading, with #JustOneParagraph

This week’s Linked-Up Wordless Wednesday prompt is “Beach Reading.” Since I rarely go to the beach at all, and I do most of my reading indoors, I’m mixing things up a little… On a related note, I’m in the process of “beaching” a whole lot of books–in the “beached whale” sense. I’m winnowing the “to be read” collection of books that are probably not to be read after all, and clearing out the ones that […]

Wordless Wednesday:Coming Clean

Wordless Wednesday:Coming Clean

 The official wording of our Wordless Wednesday theme for this week is “Spruce Up,” and if I’m being honest, I have to admit it did provide part of the inspiration for the housecleaning tear I went on this past Sunday. And since I am being honest, I’ll also admit that the top left-hand corner of this collage shows what the mop picked up from my tile floors. I humbly request that you not judge me… […]

(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday: Adventure in the Sunshine

(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday: Adventure in the Sunshine

There’s a pretty slim chance you’d get me to do this, but ziplining was one of the activities that the rest of the family really wanted to try during our vacation. Unfortunately, we were on Loon Mountain in New Hampshire at exactly the wrong, between-seasons time–the summer activities wouldn’t be open on weekdays until the week after our visit. But we drove by this place on Route 1 in Maine a few days later, and stopped off with […]

Wordless Wednesday: Sports Spectating

Wordless Wednesday: Sports Spectating

Since the Linked-Up Wordless Wednesday crew solicited our May photo themes from the Moms in our lives, we’ve gone to the Dads for our June prompts. Today’s is “Sports (playing, watching, talking about..you know, guy stuff)” When it comes to spectator sports, I think minor-league baseball is major-league fun. Before I moved to Southern California, my home team was the Memphis Redbirds, AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. Rooting for the home team: the […]
